Where would you put a bleed tube?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Getting my second GTX 580 back soon, then I'm going to get it wet and set up a Paralell Bridge (2x single tubes)

I got a T connector and a Plug that goes on the end. no spare Fittings.

Where would you put the bleed tube?


(old picture from previous motherboard, but the Line goes the same)

They say its supposed to be the lowest part of the loop but your rad is the lowest so maybe in the hose on the right just before the rad might be your best spot.

Having it on the right side would give implications with bleeding the Top rad, having it on the left side would make it harder to bleed the Reservoir. (although this cant be bled fully anyway)

What I want it to do, is bleed out most of it, so that no water is running out when I open any of the tubes going to the top Rad, CPU block or GPU block. Therefore I thought the left side of the bottom rad would be best?

Actually I think I would just get a quick disconnect in your case and hook it up to the right side of the bottom radiator. That should give you pretty free access to the res, cpu block, and top rad. Also with a QDC you would just unhook it then point your tube where ever you wanted the water to go and open the end with a pen or other device to depress the plunger.

Why?

As soon as you break the loop liquid will flow from any points higher anyway.

this isnt always true. I bled my loop yesterday in a similar fasion, and the top rad would not bleed. Hard to explain why, but its like if you take a straw and put it in a glass of liquid then put your finger on the top and pull it out the liquid is still there. The waterblock and pump act like your finger on the top of the straw.

You mean restrictive components having a smaller area are less likely to let air through without help due to the surface tension. That's a fair point, hadn't thought of that.

Rads are always a pain to bleed completely though.

I just don't see how the t junction being one side or another will make any real difference. Unless you have a bleed valve on the top rad, it's always going to be a pain.
