Also, have you tried filling one port on the rad, than plugging it, than turning it over to see if water comes out the other port?

Im sorry, i dont understand what you are referring to when you say two on the left and two on the right. Are you talking about the barbs?

When i fill one port on the rad and plug it, when i turn it over are you referring to the barbs on the back side of the radiator? Remember this rad comes with ports on the back and the front.

sorry for the confusion. The two on left and right are referring to my crappy paint drawing. Basically, if you can hear a slosh there is still air in the rad.

The rad in this drawing on the left would be with a complete blockage, not necessarily right down the middle.

white circle = fill point green circle = drain point

Start with all ports plugged, put water in the white circle. Plug the white circle, unplug the green circle. Tip the rad over. If water comes out the green circle you do not have a complete blockage. If water doesn't come out than you have a complete blockage.

Hope this helps

well its definitley not a complete blockage because water does come out when i tip it over.

without reading back through all these post, did you ever have high temps when running? Maybe as suggested you had a QDC not working properly that was causing some excessive restriction.

I think these reservoirs look great! but suck for proper flow!

They have both inlet and outlet on the bottom. I think its anoying how when you fill it up, the water goes to both the pump and the last radiator in my loop because thats where i have it returning water to my reservoir. Anyway i know its been a while since i posted an update to this thread but i have so far done the following:

I completely drained my entire rig!

I took everything out piece by piece and tested each component in a separate loop to ensure there is no restriction issues and that the loop can complete.

Than i put everything back and filled for the first time. This time my cpu Loop seems to be completeing and running fine(i used an xspc 480 rad because my MagicCool Monsta is definitley defective) Now my issue is my GPU loop! it is doing the same thing where it suckse some water down but then shoots back up immediatley after shutting off. I checked to insure that the water is completeing the loop with no problem. But there must be some serious air pockets in one of my radiators. I have tipped my case in every direction possible. when i shake my case, i hear no splishing/splashing in the Rads so i assume there are no air pockets. All of my QDC's are fine!. I tested each one separatley. I dont know what it is and i am Desparate for some help. I am going to try picking up my entire case and turning it upside down to see if that does somthing. PLEASE HELP! SEE MY VIDEO BELOW

i have never had this rig hooked up and running since i added the Extended pedestal. Before i added it however, my temps were fine. But my loops were also fine with no issues. This Pedestal has caused alot of headaces! But when running the way its supposed to, i know it will be worth it having two rads below my case and away from the motherboard.

You are fine having the rads near the mb. I dont have any issues

yes i have tried one pump.

I always run everything with just one pump than when everything is running the way its suppose to, i turn on the other pump.

Have you booted with it and checked actual temps for each GPU?



If that is how your loop is set up I think it would be the natural tendency of your loop. My guess would be that your rad drains some and gets some air when the pump is off, but when the pump is turned on the air is pushed into the res. Have you tried adding water while the pump is running?

Last edit, I promise, if your rad drains completely you wouldn't be able to hear sloshing, but maybe you could figure out the volume that your rad can hold and the volume that the res can hold and then the difference in volume present in the res while running.

Good luck thumb.gif
