Something must not be right, but what is it? - Page 2

here are 2 pics, taken with my phone. Is this considered a lot of air bubbles? there are more around, but the camera didnt get em all, but this is how the entire bottom of my res looks. A few of the bubbles were big.

I wouldnt worry too much about bubbles in the res. Chances are they wont get sucked into the system. You tilted your case while the loop is running to get the air bubbles out of the tubing & blocks correct?

clean your cpu blocks. It probably got some algae or similar garbage clogging it up

If you get to a point where you have no other ideas pull the gpu out of the loop and note any change.At this point you are looking for a starting point,sort of looking for a point where things are like they should be.I am sure you can figure out on you own how to maintain video with that paticular gpu out of the loop.

Tilt your case both ways you described, just watch the water line, make sure it doesn't drop below where water is pulled into your pump.

If that doesn't work ie no air in the loop dismantle your block and clean it. Soapy waters fine, just rinse with distilled or de ionised water thoroughly after. Might wanna flush your rad while your at it.

if i flush teh rads, that will mean cutting the hosing off the barbs, so i need to get more hosing. Also, could i drain it and put new distilled in it? or maybe open the res up from the top?

If you CPU block is gunked up mostly likely its been caused by flux left in the rad. So if you do disassemble the block and find its gunked up i really would recommend flushing your rads.

To start with just tilt, don't put anything in it, can't say i've had too before. Although i've only WC'ed for about 3 months so....
