OK, so the connection to my water pump on my CPU liquid cooling kit snapped off. Buying a new kit would be time consuming and more expensive... So I have an idea. There is still plenty of room to hose clamp at where it broke but it is wider ID and OD then the hoses in the system. Is it possible to couple a smaller ID\OD hose to a bigger one?
Funny enough, I ran into a leak on what I built. Thank God I didn't lose my $500 video card in the process, but I put plumber tape on the hook up and I'm good to go so far. Next PC build I'm going with a company that uses American ******* measurements. (Seriously, nobody in this state carries this bizarre Korean ID/OD that came with the kit.) Yes, that's right, I'm not going back to air-cooling. It's kind of a "once you do this you can't go back" kind of thing. I have to liquid cool something, or it's not a real gaming PC.
I might go closed loop next PC build (which since I maxed Doom 4 in 4k @ like 300FPS+ I haven't been able to convince the wife that we need a new one just yet.) I really loved this system though, it lasted for years and years and years with 24/7 run-time and overclocked parts.
