Finally got around to putting together my first water cooling rig. I got a bunch of parts years ago and never actually used them. I started putting it all together and found out I was short two fittings. I had a tight place I needed to get out of so I ordered two brand new alpha cool 45 degree compression fittings. Finally got it all put together and went to fill it and both of the brand new fittings leaked at the rotary (not at either fitting joint) while all my 8 year old fittings and washers were invincible. Tore it all apart. Thanks alpha cool for wasting x many hours of my life and discouraging me enough to give up on the sunk cost of all this gear. Air cooling for life.
