[quote name='slipperysam']could u email me a link stright to the page thanx. sam[/QUOTE] Here's the parts used on the HydroCool series: The HC uses 3/8" ID tubing inside the box. While the cold-plate uses 1/4" ID. Thus, the flow through with DISCONNECT SHUT-OFF needs to be 1/4". :D: BACK OF THE HYDRCOOL BOX 3/8" PANEL MOUNT COUPLING WITH SHUTOFF COLDER PRODUCTS CORP P/N PLCD16006 US PLASTICS P/N: 64157 Acetal Shut-Off In Line Hose Barb Fitting 1/4" Flow Inch; 3/8" ID [url]http://www.usplastic.com/catalog/product.asp?catalog%5Fname=usplastic&category%5Fname=6917&product%5Fid=7310[/url] [img]http://www.usplastic.com/images/products/tubing/64613p.jpg[/img] MOUNTED ON THE COLD BLOCK TUBEING GOING TO THE HC BOX 1/4" HOSE BARB, ELBOW INSERT WITH SHUTOFF COLDER PRODUCTS CORP P/N PLCD23004 US PLATICS P/N: 64237 Acetal Shut-Off Elbow Hose Barb With Shut-Off 1/4" Flow Inch; 1/4" ID [url]http://www.usplastic.com/catalog/product.asp?catalog%5Fname=usplastic&category%5Fname=6917&product%5Fid=7395[/url] [img]http://www.usplastic.com/images/products/tubing/64241p.jpg[/img] * NOTE: If you're looking to go all 3/8" tubing all around, then see this forum thread: [url]http://www.houseofhelp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=37691&highlight=quick[/url] Hope this helps. :biggrin: Stev *UPDATED the links and provided info to the upgrade thread.

Yearly maintenance using quantity one 64157, and quantity one 64237 from USPlastic, a bucket, 3 feet of 1/4 inch I/D tubing, and an air compressor. Pics attached. Tip - Use a deep bucket, the coolant splatters and comes out fast!

Harryc, Nice work! :biggrin: Excluding the air compressor, how much was it for just the tubing and quick disconnects in USD's? Also, at what PSI did you have the air compressor running at? 10-20 PSI should purge the system without splattering the coolant much. Glad that you had gotten a deep bucket for the job. :sunglasse Stev

Stev, thanks. The total cost was $18.39 shipped for the 2 connectors(California to NY). The tubing..I bought 50 feet of Tygon for 15 dollars on EBay. The compressor is rated for 1 cfm@30psi. Total cost excluding the compressor I'd estimate at $20 or less. The other good thing about the connectors is that you have spares if any of your others break or leak.

Harryc, Good work. :biggrin: As for $20, that isn't a good cost target for a fluid flush as others may state this as being high priced. :[pouts: There are 3/8" ID fittings without shut-offs (Colder Couplers) from U.S. Plastics that could drain the HC. These are cheaper. And the tubing, just for draining, could be less than $0.60 cents per foot at Home Depot. This should half the cost of a flush without the coolant purchase. :D: However, you do have a strong point; now you have backup couplers. Rather than an air compressor, there has been talk about placing that tube into a FRESH mixture of coolant+distilled water. Then running the HC as it flushes itself. When the coolant is used up in the FRESH bucket, your flushed and refilled! Of course, you will have to unplug the PSU from the MOBO and place a jumper on the connector. :sunglasse Stev

I have other plans for it. So I really don't figure that heavily into total cost. But you are right, $20 for a setup you use once a year is high. But, I didn't have to open the case, and I did not have to remove any connectors. For convenience it is tops. I have $5 bucks right here says that when Corsair comes out with a drain and fill kit is costs more than $20 shipped ;).

Do these sources for the quick disconnects sell the OEM hose clamps in the HC200? The ones with two ends you slide off to release clamping pressure? If not, I guess I can use tie-clamps and cut them off for removal. They don't seem necessary as the hoses don't leak even without the clamps as the barbs do a good job, but I imagine they are recommended as a security measure.
