One of the most common questions that follows "should I water cool my PC" is "will it leak?" Luckily, regardless of whether you're already using a full custom loop on your graphics card, CPU, and all, or just thinking of starting up a simple loop, we now have a device that claims to answer that question definitively.

    The sentence you were looking for Linus is as follows: If you aren't getting free computer parts from people daily and you are planning on running the system in a realistic way, probably for a few years, then the Leak Shield will mean you don't have to stress about your loop leaking after standing in your system for three years. I won't know about that since I have a warehouse full of parts that I can go to, in which there is any conceivable part I will ever need.

    It creates a constant vacuum/suction i guess that’s why applying more holes increases the chance of failure (the pump can’t generate enough suction)

Such sci fi technology being played with by a dangerous unchecked Linus.

    Wow this is pretty cool. Many things in custom pc building are gimmicks(cough, rgb, cough) but this is actually innovative and useful. If I were rich and dumb enough to do a custom loop, this would be at the top of my list - and it's not even that expensive tbh.

    This is amazing and all. It really makes someone like me who avoided open loops altogether because of these kinds of issues to want to delve into open loops. But... I have a concern. What happens when I have the whole system shut down including the pumps and there were leaks that the Leakshield have helped to solve in my system. Will there be no pressure then and thus the solved leaks will start leaking again once the Leakshield is turned off? If yes, then I guess there is still some concern of the leaks that were handled by the Leakshield reoccurring again the moment the system is powered down (including the leakshield). Any help on this? Many thanks!

    you can power it with a powerbank and a normal usb-a cable. they will release a little board in some weeks so you can connect it to the mb and powerbank at the same time for backup power

    How much would the whole thing cost, like leakshield, their reservoir, their collant and may be their tubing as well. And also do they sell GPU blocks. I mean whole water cooling setup with LeakShield. We have a couple of systems for Machine Leaning tasks with a fair bit of complexity. In the previous build we ran across temp issues and when trying to liquid cool it proved a challenge in itself where we ruined a couple of not so cheap GPUs. Maybe we can give a try with this.

    Could've done with one of these a few years back. Playing a game of Overwatch with some mates of mine and I start getting some crazy fps drops, look over at my PC and I had a nice waterfall on my side panel window. Safe to say, I'm glad that happened then and not in 2020, had to replace most of the system. I had needed to do some maintenance on my PC earlier that day and I must have knocked one of the tubes, one of these would've save it lol.

    Tightly controllable vacuum pump with air pressure sensors and a microcontroller. That is all this thing is, and frankly it's implementation is very clever. It being overcome by too many holes didn't surprise me, this works by pulling air in faster than the water can leak out to try and create a negative total pressure even as the water flows. If the hole is big enough that the water can leak faster than the pump can pull air, well, it's just been plain and simple overwhelmed.

    Love that they used a goretex membrane that you usaually find in automotive electronics with the top cover removed (see the 6 clips around the membrane). Guess the shield is removed because it can trap water near the membrane. If you ever tear one or need to replace, you might be able to, they are somewhat standardised. Pry them out, remove the broken clips inside and snap in a new one (there are also screwed ones but this looks like a "gore snap fit")

    Don't know if anyone pointed it out, but if LS tells your PC to power down while itself being powered by the MB..... I guess that a practical use of a battery pack is to maintain the seal long enough to troubleshoot or drain the system with the PC off.
