I am thinking about removing the aluminum fins from the phase-change coolant tank as they aren't doing much. The copper tubes should do the heat transfer just fine on their own. So there would be no aluminum in the loop. I have some time to work on that though as the phase change part of the loop isn't connected yet. I have next week off from work so I'd like to make some serious progress on the Geo-thermal side of the loop which is interesting me the most. Due to it's cool temperature producing water (11-13C) and virtual zero energy use, it will be the best part of the cooling aspect of this project IMO.

I am thinking of re-arranging the cooling loop so that:

Branch #1 = CPU > X79 > VRM/MOSFET

Branch #2 = 680 > 680 > 2x RAM Sticks

Branch #3 = 680 > 680 > 2x RAM Sticks

I think the balance between those would be fairly close. The VRM/MOSFET coolers are really low restriction and would pretty much balance the resistance of the 2x RAM sticks. So essentially it will be one CPU block versus two GPU blocks to balance resistance. Anyone think the resistance balance would be way off on the above configuration? (Doesn't need to be perfect)

why not use a pump for each branch and not worry about resistance?

The system already used 1 gallon of distilled water and I ran out so I wasn't able to fire the rig up. Tomorrow is another day.
Have you tried putting one end into a tank of water and sucking the water in through the tubes? Seems like it would be better than trying to force the air out with the water.

Multiple pumps = more heat dump and more chance of failure. The RD-30 is capable of 37 feet of head pressure so I don't even know why I am worrying about resistance. It is so powerful I actually run it at 18v instead of its normal 24v. That might change though when I hook up all the Geo-thermal stuff

Ya, I think I may put in a valve just before the pump so I can hook up a reservoir and it can pump the water through directly and push the air out.

Why not just get a shop vac to pull water through, so that most of the air is gone? Stick one end in a 5 gallon bucket with water, then hock the vacuum up to the other end.

Wait. How did you lose water?

That's not a good sign...?

Is the pump having issues staying primed?

Would a vacuum pump work?

Pardon my asking, but where did you purchase the fresnel lens you used with the Sony CRTs? I've not read through the entire thread, so I apologize if I have missed it.
