Stev and I are on a new mission, but we have not forgotten our old friends! You may find us on a new google search, but I can't say any more other than the strings "OS XI" or "G6" would not find us...

The top connector is "out" as the tank "return" was placed on the bottom to allow for longest installed bend radius to tank inlet tube.

Have you returned unit yet? If not, If not, I think I can correct it at no cost to you. Sorry for the hassles and disappointment. Please let me know.

The "crackling noises" are not the water block nor the heat exchanger, unless just after filling for the first time. Otherwise, it is the pump. Try rocking the HC200 side to side about 45 degrees in...

I would suggest using the 90 + % isopropyl alcohol first ... it will work for this just fine. I would avoid acetone as it is too aggressive and not really needed for this use ... you could...

I believe the need to change fluid has been over-stated. The additives were designed to work in an automotive environment at 240 degrees F with a mix of steel, aluminum, and other materials. In the...

Between the fan and the pump, the HC200 should not draw more than about 20W. The display should work all the time ... I've never seen otherwise except for a board or LED failure. Unless you have some...

The reservoir is welded & machined aluminum construction. The body is black anodized, not painted, so you may be able to epoxy directly to it. Interesting idea ... good luck with the peltier.

I've tested AS3 ... don't have experience with AS4 or AS5 vs. the Shin-Etsu grease that ships with the HC200. Bottom line ... they are not all that different as one might expect.

Actually, this is quite insightful and clevor experimentation. The quietest operating point happens to be around around 9.0 to 9.5 volts. This barely changes the operating temps, but does make it...

The pump has a MTBF of at least 50K hours in an auto at 200+ degrees F (we have not worn one out yet). The fan has a MTBF at least that plus some due to the dual ball bearing design. As Stev...

The temperature drop across the cold block, once up to temp and running full load is only about 1 - 2 degrees. This equilibrium happens about 30 to 60 minutes after startup.

I wouldn't use the peltier GPU block ... the peltier waste heat for that much cooling will overload the system. You'd be better off using a good block w/o the pelt.

I wouldn't expect to see these in the US any time soon as I believe Corsair has trademark on the "Hydrocool" name. The term "Microchannel" may be trademarked as well.
