    Was it the Ruttles? "All You Need Is Cash"

    It broke at the base of one of the barbs. Would love to do liquid right, but that takes $$$ and am now fresh out. The concept is still valid, just the execution sucks...so far. And I treated that unit more gently than my newborn daughter (29 yrs ago...ouch).

    Ruttles, is that towards me? If so ya lost me

    Wonder why the use such brittle tubes? I guess they have since corrected it as noted by psycho, did you get a older unit or was it one of the new ones?

    Their excuse for the stiff tubing is that over time, normal piping one would use in water cooling can lead to coolant loss as it's ever so slightly porous. They therefore used a different material which will help retain more coolant over time, which is vital as it's a sealed unit.

    In the Rev 2 unit they added a brace surrounding the barbs and ~1" of the pipe to absorb the force if you bent the pipes on install. However it doesn't go all the way around, it has a slot in it, so bending the pipe into this slot causes the same problem as before.

    OldGeek, have you contacted them for an RMA yet? They'll be very helpful as they don't want any bad press like they had with the Rev 1 units. You could always get it replaced, then eBay the brand new one. You'd get close to the retail price for a sealed box item, I'm sure.

    Edit: @Lsdmeasap, I believe when OldGeek refered to "All you need is cash" he was saying jokingly that he wished he had the funds for a custom water cooling setup.
