When you take the block off if the tubes are long enough do some tilting then would be the time to do it as it may be lower or closer to the height of the res.

Also, I found that a few drops of PT nuke help break up large stubborn bubbles. It breaks up the surface tension well. Im not sure if your using it or not, but I would suggest trying some if you havent already.

^^^^^^ Correct. You should also check your thermal paste. Then make sure that your waterblock is seated correctly to the cpu.
I always thought it was: reservoir outlet -> pump inlet/outlet -> rad -> cpu -> reservoir inlet ->

That way your CPU would get the coldest water possible, and the rad would take away any heat created by the pump. I could be wrong, but that's how I learned it.

Thread Starter 
just got back online thanks to a powercut! gave me time to re-seat the block with a fresh drop of arctic silver paste. re routed the hoses for a slightly cleaner build. i also changed the flow so the cpu is before the rad. just to see how it affects the temperature

i still have a few bubbles rattling around in the pump but the temps look good so far. running 26-34 degrees as im typing this. which i presume will improve as the air works its way out.

Jason. thanks for the pt nuke tip. i actually have some waiting to go in. will see if it helps at all. thanks for all the tips guys, really has sped up the re-re-build . just need to get my twin rad fitted now. that should tidy the chassis up and bring the temp down even further.
