Ok so just to make sure how do I bleed/fill with a res?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
The res is the highest thing in my loop, how do I fill and bleed it? I just keep putting in coolant, and do I leave the fill hole on the res open? How will I know when I'm done? As in what will the water level in my res look like when I'm done? If I have about 12 feet of tubing, a 3x120 fan rad, 1 cpu block, 2 gpu blocks, and a 5.25 bay res, about how much coolant will I need to put in there (in oz. if you can estimate).
I did read some guides but they all only explain it for a t-line fillport, not a res.

Is this system external or internal? And what are you using for a res?

The system will be easier to bleed if the rad and pump are unbolted at this point, as you'll need to move both around to release any trapped air. Pinching the tube and releasing it at the pump outlet will also help remove trapped air.
Once you no longer see any air bubbles in the lines just fill the res as close to the top as possible and seal fill hole.
