Yeah like Los Hog said, tilt your case about, but keep an eye on the water line in the res or your introduce more air, not that you can't get it out also, just an annoyance really.

If you want shut your PC down disconnect all the cables including power and pull out all the power cables in the motherboard and plug the 24pin jumper cable you get with the XSPC kit so just your pump is running when you do power her up, you know like you should have done when leak testing, and tilt her around. Just incase you where worried about doing it with everything plugged in and turned on etc

thanks guys load temps have dropped to mid 50's after tilting the case around. As far as leak testing, well...I didn't really do it this time around, when I did the CPU only loop i did though.

I don't leak test for long either, 3 hours at most really. I've even stopped using the crap little clips that come with the XSPC kit as 7/16" tubing makes for a very tight seal over 1/2" barbs.

Glad ya happier now though fella, though i feel maybe ya temps should be a bit lower. Depends on a few things really, like your ambient, rad positioning, components in the loop that are OC'ed, fan configuration etc

Cooling seems a lot better! Thanks, I guess it was just some air that got trapped in there when I was moving everything around to install the creative titanium HD! Here's some pics of my rig:

Very nice pics!

I do have to suggest to you, and the poster before your last post, to still use a clamp of some sort. It's not about how firm the tubing is when you put it on, it's about how easy it is to slip off after running in your PC for a year or two. I've got some old watercooling kits that were a huge PITA to get together back in the day because of how tight they were. When digging through my watercooling pile'o'stuff, I noticed how easily the tubes now slipped off of those same fittings that were so secure when I installed them. Just a thought, and trying to save you a giant wallet-and-head-ache.

Also, while distilled is great in the short term for being non-conductive, long term conductivity resistance is uncertain due to it picking up ions from the metals in the loop, slowly restoring conductivity. Just a heads up. I chose 7/16" ID on 1/2" barbs AND worm-drive clamps for a reason. Nobody and nothing is going to take my tubing off except ME!
