EK Water Blocks or EKWB for short has a long history of making excellent liquid cooling gear. One thing that worries any enthusiast user is the possibility of their new liquid cooling system leaking.
Users now have a way to test their liquid cooling loop for leaks via a unique tool EKWB has recently released.
The tool allows users to connect the gauge to a G1/4 fitting whether that be direct to the block or to a drain fitting which can then be used to pressurize the system. The great part is you can use this new tool to even test individual blocks part by part if a leak is found. You would only need to install G1/4 plugs into any open port and have the gauge hooked to another.
It is advised users pressurize the system for up to 15 minutes or more and monitor the gauge for pressure loss via the needle movement.
The gauge integrated into the tool also has a safe zone to ensure you do not over pressurize your liquid cooling system. With such a granular scale, you should be able to distinguish if pressure loss is happening quickly. For those readers in our audience who build with open-loop custom liquid cooling like myself, do you share my question of 'why did this not exist sooner?' Are you excited to have something like this available? And will you be buying one?
