Well I am almost certain it is a flow issue now.
I tried bleeding the loop, but it was done in a rather mediocre way as I have idea how to do it better. I simply turned the system on, tilted the system front and back, turned off the system, then repeat. I left one port on the res open.
However, I am still seeing highly fluctuating temps, going from the 50's to the 80's in seconds.
Is there any way to just turn on the pump only, and not the entire system? Does anyone have any better suggestions to bleed the loop to ensure better flow?
The rad is not hot at all when I touch it.
just plug the pump in only and jump it
