Couple of Quick Questions

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So just setup my system and had a few questions.

I bought a Bitspower Water Tank Z-Multi 250 Inline Reservoir and it is massive. I am thinking about mounting it on the back of the case (HAF 932) and wanted to know if I can use this side (the one with three inlets) right-side up so tubing can be minimized coming out of the case. Currently they are on the bottom. Basically can I do this and which inlet do I use for input and which for output?




Next, my pump (Swiftech MCP655-Bâ„¢ 12 VDC Pump Without speed controller) is making a tremendous amount of noise intermittently. Could this be from air bubbles? I do see some in the tubes occasionally.


Would a new res and pump be a good solution?


Any help is appreciated. Thanks

You can pretty much do anything you want with it.

See the 2 setups below. I personally prefer setup 1. However, setup 2 also works.

A newly setup watercooling system is almost always to have bubbles in the loop. And they can cause noise. You just have to bleed them out patiently. Wobble/rotate/tilt your system in all directions so that bubbles trapped inside can find the way to the res. Swiftech MCP655 is a good pump. If yours is not defective (and causing the noise), I would keep it.

Yes, you can have it oriented either way. The only problem with 3 ports being on the bottom is filling the reservoir, although draining is easier.

If I were you invest in this Bitspower Water Tank Z Plus - Three Port End Cap and have the best of both worlds, a 3 port up top and one on bottom.

thanks guys. i re-did everything and it was indeed the air bubbles making the noise.

right now i have my side panel off. is there any adapters or such that can help me navigate through the two ports on the back of the case? the tubing was not making it through there since I have an RX360 with push pull fans mounted on the top of the interior of the case.

If the RX360 with push-pull fans is blocking off the two rear outlets (as shown by the red circle in pic 1 below), I suppose you will have to cut new openings.

The pair can be either in the upper or lower location as shown in pic 2. You will need better tools to do the upper ones while the lower ones could be done easier.
