It will probably still work as long as the tubes are fill full. I once emptied a tub with my 655 and I had the pump about 1' above the top of the water. Priming it was a pain though.

I wouldn't leave it like that for very long. *I think* the pump will require more power to suck and pump, so you would be putting additional stress on the power circuitry. Assuming you have it sealed, just tip it up and located you pump lower than it.

So i finally put everything back into the case and i filled up that abomination in this loop:

Attachment 223897

after heeding your guys' words.

After messing around with it for a while and sweating over whether the waters going to bust out all over my computer, i chickened out and put a fill-port with a 3-way thingy i bought at lowes.

Ah well at least i know my computer is safe for now and it'll be easy to put a res in when i can afford it. I feel like i should have let it blow up inside of my computer to give this thread a little more of a bang than my wussing out story but its all for the best. woohoooo working computer!

heres it as it is now

That's great you got a T fitting and are trying to set up a T line. One problem with your T line though is your not going to be able to bleed the system with the T fitting in that orientation, your T line/fill line needs to be vertical and not horizontal to let passing air bubbles rise up into the the T line. It also greatly helps if the T line is the highest point in the loop. I'm not sure you will be able to properly bleed your loop in that configuration. Good luck!

i tilted it on the side and it all seems to have worked out well. im posting on it right now with idle temps of 32 degrees wohoo!
+rep for the idea though. I thought about it when i embarked on this journey but i wanted to try to macgyver something with the tools i had handy. I ended up just going to lowes and getting that though haha

Well, that is true if you tilt the case forward it should bleed properly (sorry for not thinking of that ), you should leave it like that with the loop running for 24 hours to get all the air out of the loop. You should also leave the system off while your doing this as you should still be looking for leaks. Is the tubing from the T fitting going into the pump's inlet or outlet? It should be hooked up to the inlet of the pump. Thanks for the rep, and it's looking much better.

I wish I had a jar like that for when I replace the water in my computer. Maybe I can save this big ol pickle jar sitting in my fridge...

the t fitting comes at the very end of the loop, i figured that would be the best place to put it.

also i dont think that chunkylad fella was talking about cooling the water in his fridge, i think he was just speculating on a possible jar he could use to drain water into ( i think )

will it be up side down? either the inlets or the outlet to the pump should be long, almost to the bottom.

if it will be up side down going into your pump, make the inlets long. (just to make sure the bubbles go to the top and not into the pump)

if it will be right side up, with the pump sucking out of it, make sure the line going to the pump reaches almost to the bottom. (just to minimize the amount of air that you might suck up)

nice work though =)
