have you contacted the rad mannie? get their input on the situation.
personally, i'd run it, unless its a genuine PITA to RMA the rad(s).
is this the only setback on the rig?

i have 2 other 480 rads i could use but i dont want to have to.

Other than this, the rig is a dream

I have a dual pump system with D5's connected in series, both have Bitspower V2 tops now. Something I noticed a while back was the stock D5 (no aftermarket top at the time) seemed to prime up and quieten down quicker, even though it was further from the res than the D5 with the top.
Typically I see that same air pocket thing where you shut the pumps off/on and see the level rise and fall, indicating more air needs to be bled and is trapped somewhere in the pump region.
Usually I have to tilt my case all the way over several times to get all the air purged, especially from my top rad. Between tilting, turning pumps on/off eventually most of the air gets bled and usually within a half hour it's running quiet.
I've had to drain/fill my system about 10 times because of doing various mods so I pretty much have a system now.

I'm running a couple of rads in my pedestal in a moderately big loop and mine too can be a real pain to fill and bleed. Once it gets going it's fine but it sometimes takes quite a few attempts to get the water flowing all the way through the loop. I now tend to put just small amounts of water into the res and run the pump very briefly until it's gone through the pump and repeat (a lot).

do you have the same reservoir's i have?"

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

Watched the video, it looks exactly like the airlocks I get when filling my loop. I'm just using a single loop with a single EK res. All I can suggest is 'bumping the pump'. Switch on only the pump that's first in the loop (assuming you have 2) then switch off after a couple of seconds, keep doing that while shaking the case as much as you can until the water eventually starts to flow. It can take me 5 or more minutes to get it going.

Thanks for your help!

I am having just that one pump first in the loop running. I have turned the pump on and off several times and shaken the case constantly and tipping in all directions. i have also tried shortening the loop by eliminating the last rad in the loop and i noticed that the issue let up just a little. Then i tried eliminating the gpu's in the loop and had just Res-Pump-Top Rad back to Res, and the issue let up a little more but still there.

I think its the top rad that is causing the issue because the water flows upward from the pumps in the top rad located on top of the case once it passes through, it goes down into the gpu's and then down another rad then back to the reservoir.

I know the rad is fine cause i took it out and tested it separatley from the case. Had a res-pump-rad-res loop and i did not have this issue.

Ever since i have added this Extended Pedestal i have had nothing but issues like this running the loops. Its really great though how it separates my rads form the rest of the rig and i can also fit another PSU down there just for my Pumps/Fans/Lights.

I see you have had some issues aswell but not to the extent mine are.
