thanks s31,

I have multiple bups offsite as well (ie the removable trays). I never looked into online bups as I think it would be too slow, things may change when we get super fast broadband.

cheers

James

Couldn't have said it better myself. Clean wiring just makes it look classy. Even though I don't use cases with windows, I take lots of time and pride in my wiring.
A clean wiring job just looks really good (feels good too).

Now if only I could get my watercooling loop to look better....

~Lordbob
It also adds to better airflow, which in turn provides better temps

Depends on the wiring, but yes, especially with the old ribbon IDE cables!

With the water cooling hoses the little trick I learned with the water filtration and UV sterilization hosing I used on my Marine fish tanks. Drop the hosing in just boiled water and allow it to soften. Cut the hosing to length and allow the hose to cool in it's best position, rotating it on it's fitting if possible. This also expands the hosing and when it contracts around the fittings it will be very tight but still use a clamp. Never use petroleum jelly or the like on any fittings.

That's a very good tip I have done the same for vacuum lines on cars.

I wouldnít recommend "PJ" either the clamp should be sufficient enough. Any metal parts that are threaded use Teflon tape just wrap it around two to three times and you should be good to go.

In regards to Teflon tape please remove any tape that hangs off the end of the fitting as this trailer can be dislodged into the pump and totally foul it up. Use it only on the threads!

Yup but that stuff works wonders but only on fluid applications gas eats the stuff up.

Also if you ever disassemble make sure you clean the threads and replace the Teflon.,

Agreed,
Its best to start from the end where the hose connects, go around a couple times, then work your way up the threads to the base.
Doing it in this direction will ensure the dags wont get caught in the pipeline.

Crazyeyeschase, what gas eats it up?
It seals oxy-acetylene connections pretty well.
Or perhaps we talking about different tapes...?

It doesnít really eat it I should of rephrased my statement.

Teflon lubricates the threads and improves the water tightness of the joint. Another "better" suggestion would be pipe dope. You should not use regular white Teflon for gas connections they make a heavier yellow Teflon for gas connections.

It really depends on the gas being contained. If it's something like household lines that need inspected it needs to have yellow Teflon or pipe dope.

Like I said the white Teflon creates a water tight seal but gasses can escape seals a lot better than water thatís why the yellow Teflon is heavier. I donít like doing a half butt job on gas lines why would you want to risk it? Once a small leak does form it doesnít take long for it to become a large leak. Like I said it just depends on the Gas and a little personal preference.
