from what i could see, yes. How much, i dont know. The Pumps cause the water in the Res to drop down to about a little below half way and it stays steady. That would lead me to believe that it water is flowing through the loop and returning to the inlet of the Res. When the pumps stop, the water shoots back up to the top of the Res.

With your in/out where they are in your res, you have to have quite a bit of air in your loop somewhere. If the water goes in the bottom barb and out the top barb of your radiator, then it probably isn't there. The most likely is between the CPU block and res. Once the air is bled out (by rotating/angling/tilting/tipping your case while the pump runs), the only real fluctuations in water level you should have is a bit of tubing flex between being pressurized and not: which shouldn't be much.

After you have the pump running, try tilting the case back so that the tube goes uphill from the cpu to the res and see if it burps out a bunch of air. Since you have clear tubing, I would think you could see wher ethe air was at fairly easily.

A picture is worth a thousand words:



From what I understand you have your rad set up correctly.

That takes me back to a blockage somewhere.

i have not read everything but you are filling the loop for the first time? if so try and fill the reservoir while its lowering instead of stopping the pump to fill the rest.. when you stop the pump the pressure due the cpu block being higher than reservoir pushes the water back. So once the water gets a full cycle through the loop you should be fine

The pump causes suction. Even with my pump the water level drops when in use...and there is a back flow when the pump is off.. But the question is should there be that much of a difference.

Okay everyone!

Thank you for all the input and advice!

I confirmed that the problem is definitley the Radiator!

I put 2 other radiators in the loop in place of this one and there is no issue.

I used 1 480 SR-1 and 1 XSPC 480

No issues whatsoever.

And get this, with the Magic Cool Monsta Rad filled i could feal vibration and flow when i hold the tube going to the Inlet, but none on the tube comming from the outlet.
It seems as though the flow is either slowing down so much that i dont feal it running through the tube, or its not flowing at all. I've tried everything! I tried Shaking the radiator, I tried raising it above and below the reservoir. Ive tried tilting the rad back and forth, upside down you name it. I have'nt tried Filling up the Reservoir while the pumps are running. I will give that a try later on today. I never thought of that because the pumps suck the water down so fast that i felt i had to stop every thing and re-fill.

The problem is, my reservoir has such a small fill hole

I have to use a Funnel and the pumps suck the water so FAST! that the pumps will run dry and dammage because it takes a while for the water to trickel down the small hole and fill the pumps with water fast enough.

Time to play with the monsta in the sink for awhile.

Okay, what do you recommend i do?

Use an external pump or hook tubing up to your faucet and push water through the rad in both directions (not at the same time) and see if you can get the blockage out (it might just be a bunch of leftover flux). If you can't get it out, then RMA.
