Need some assistance bleeding my Rig

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I am having massive amounts of difficulty trying to bleed my system. I have a RP452x2 with 2 pumps, I have a single loop using both reservoirs without the acrylic adapter, a 360 rad and a 120 rad but no matter what I do I cant get my loop to start flowing. To fill my loop I had my case tilted on its back and I got my 120mm rad, cpu and gpu filled, but I cant seem to bleed the air out of my 360mm rad which is top mounted and is higher then my reservoir. I even tilted my case upside down at one point trying to use gravity to pull some of the air out but no use. I oscilate the pump on and off but just cant seem to get the pressure to fill up my rad. Has anyone ran into this problem and found a way to bleed the 452? I knew it was going to be a hastle to bleed but I had no idea it would be this intense :S

Lets see if I understand this correctly: you have your setup partially filled, but when you turn the pumps on, they aren't pushing water through your loop?

It doesn't sound like you have an air problem. Have you double checked that the pumps are oriented the correct direction, with their outlets both facing in the same direction?

Pics of your setup will help a lot. Two pumps should have no problem lifting the water up the height of a normal case, so as long as there is water available at the inlet then you shouldn't need to tilt your case to get the water to start flowing.

Sounds like some part of your setup isn't quite right. Maybe have another read of the res manual. It is avaiable on the Koolance website if you don't have a copy handy.


Edit:

Do you have the outlet of one pump hooked up to the inlet of the other? Check your plumbing again.
