We realize that customers that purchase or think about purchasing a Digital Storm system with liquid cooling on their video card(s) run into a tough maintenance issue.
 
The problem is, if one of your video cards fail, or you need to make an upgrade, you are required to drain the entire system and then cut tubing and re-fill it.
 
We have a solution:
 
 
We will begin to install quick-release valves soon for all liquid cooled video card configurations. This way, a customer may simply send us their video cards for replacements, upgrades, etc without having to send the entire system.
 
This is a win--win situation for everyone.

Wahoo....  Maybe this will take some of the anxiety out of getting LC on the GPUs...  And you're right...it's a win-win solution.  Approve Ermm

definitely great news!

I went with air-cooling because I'm old-skool mentality and liquid+electronics just never made a safe sense to me - these innovations and rethinking for LC makes even a person like me sigh in relief for those with LC systems - anything to make it easier and safer is A+ and kudos to DSO for embracing this ideology!

Now DS needs to get some of these:


Unless they already have them, but the Pics show otherwise....

well this is great news indeed but once again if the customer is not familiar with the water block and wants to buy the new GPU from newegg, this will not help, but it does open the door for all those that want to learn and try

I think its a great idea and a wonderful add-on

Nice to see some new tech and stuff. Sounds like a great solution to the problem!

Question: if you have two liquid cooled gpus and only one fails, what do you do then? can you just unhook the piece on one gpu and connect the failed gpu's tubing to that one or are they not reliant on each other?

Just trying to figure out if this would still allow you to still game while waiting for your gpu back.

you will have quick release on the line from GPU to GPU and the line from the LC to the GPU, so you just use the quick release to disconnect from the LC and the other GPU.

I'm not too familiar with the quick release for LC.

Just curious, if I wanted to remove a card or such, would I have to drain the system first?

normally quick release valves close if you disconnect them, and connecting them opens the pathway again.
