Not Flowing Properly - Beginner Help Please - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 

When I say there is a flowing problem the spot where the GPU goes to the 120 rad looks full of water when the system is off. When I turn on the power that section drains and there is only a little water at the bottom. Let me see if I can get a photo if it.

The Koolance res seems to have a lot of problems bleeding. Have you tried moving the case around or turning it to its sides or to the top, with the res at the highest point in the loop?

I am guessing your using a 655 pump with that res, so it should not be a problem of flow or head for certain...do you see any water coming back to the res?...or into the cpu block.?

Is that the RP-452X2 res?

It has 2 chambers which can be combined or separated. Are the tubes connected accordingly?

Also don't fully close off the res. Leave the fill port open to allow air to come out during early bleeding.

It looks like it flows through the res and yes thats the RP-452x2 that I've added the rear loop and clear piece to make it a combined res. The directions were crap when I got it but I followed another guy on here that set his up the same way. I leak tested everything before I installed it and it seemed fine. I'll keep moving it and see what I can do. Should I try to drain the system and start over?

I'm having the same problem, the bubbles in the koolance res don't get trapped in the res, which is a real pain in the ass. When you do thing you get bubbles, the air is compressed and if you take the stopper off at the wrong moment, water spills out like no tomorrow.

That's the only (though big) downfall of that bay res. Pisses me off also.

So maybe when I was filling the res a bubble got stuck in the GPU block?
