    Lack of product quality control in EK manufacturing destroys future business--it is an inescapable fact of capitalism. Maybe if Donald Trump becomes the next US President, German companies like Volkswagon will learn the hard way of what it means to make and distribute defective products.

    The only two manufacturing companies (both of whom were distributed by Performance PC) I have had problems with during this $9,000 USD build are Aquacool and EK--both of them German companies like Volkswagon. I have only praise to give to Chinese companies which have been issue-free for me during this PC build. The Trans-Pacific Partnership may indeed be the way for America to progress, economically--at least the Chinese can be trusted to do good, honest business. (I am also really interested in their banking system now that their trading practices are proving worthy. . ..)

    As a consequence, I am all for the USA working with China, and unless Germany changes its ways, I am letting my political representatives know with extreme prejudice not to deal with Germany.

    Just to get going I would purchase an o-ring, either from EK (Slovenia is a country) not in Germany or from Performance PC or another retailer, o-ring should be standard size for any D-5 pump, then worry about getting it sorted out, you should also purchase a few spare o-rings for any other fittings you use, especially any quick disconnects if you use any as they can get damaged during connecting and disconnecting, at least from my experiance

    I went to a local hardware store yesterday and they did not have the right size. These are not D-5 pumps and Performance PC does not have any O-rings of the right size so they are waiting on EK to send some. https://shop.ekwb.com/ek-xtop-dual-d...m-incl-2x-pump

    I had to disconnect a few of the EK soft-tube fittings to get the pump out. Do you think those O-rings are now damaged?

    (Okay, so Slovenia is just south of Austria. I still wish the Chinese were the makers of the dual-pump--then I would not have had any problems.)

    I am feeling as mean as Donald Trump, today.

    The O-rings are a weird size and must come from Slovenia, which is going to take another week. I did not sign up for this particular life. I need a federally legal joint so damned bad just so I can feel better about having to live in this mean world.

    WTH has happened to American manufacturing?! Why are are most computer components made in other countries?! Washington, D. C. has truly sold the United States to the highest bidder!!!

    There is no Red, White and Blue anymore. I am ****ing pissed!

    It would not be so bad if it did not take goddamned forever for a ****ing O-ring to show up in my mailbox.

    I am really upset with now realizing how weak America truly is--most PC components are made elsewhere besides the US. Now that I have had to order most things for my PC from outside of the country (or from Performance PC which gets most of its merchandise from outside of the country), I understand that our country is nothing but a house of cards waiting on just a slight breeze to make them all fall to just so much trash. . ..

    No (unless EK is even more incompetent than they have already shown), their email says the O-ring is (one of these--do they not know which one?!):

    OR 47x1,5 NBR70
    OR 13x1,5

    I bought a $250 part that is defective and it very well could have destroyed my $9,000 machine, especially if the bad O-ring started leaking several days later.

    And yes it is VERY important to point out the incompetence of companies that sell defective products ALL OVER THE 'NET. They need to be busted just like Volkswagon was for its bad business practices. Since EK evidently has poor Quality Control at its manufacturing facilities, the whole world needs to know about it so that other expensive computer systems will not be in jeopardy from apparent EK incompetence.

    The EK site says the defective O-ring size is OR 48x2,5 ( https://shop.ekwb.com/o-ring-for-ddc-tops ). But the EK representative says in his email that the size is either OR 47x1,5 NBR70 or OR 13x1,5. WHICH ONE OF THE THREE IS IT? DOES, EVIDENTLY, INCOMPETENT EK NOT EVEN KNOW?!!!
