FIlling an EK Multioption res....

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

So, I'll be doing a new build here soon. I have an EK Multipoption res (X2), there's only one top port on the reservoir with a long tube to prevent undulation coming from it. Can I set up my loop, unscrew the cap, and fill the reservoir from there so long as the fluid keeps getting back into the reservoir? Or, would the top cap need to be sealed for the loop to run correctly?

You can run it without the cap on as long as its not leaking of course.

I am using X2 250 Multioption Advance. Is yours the advance or the normal one?

As the advance has 3 top ports which I used for 1 Inlet (Side), 1 Fillport (top), 1 Sealed.

As the clearance between the top of the fillport and to my rad is only 2 cm, I have to use a squeezy bottle to fill my loop.

its a bit dark, but if you notice on the top there are a shiny silver stop plug which is the one that is sealed. There is another one which I used a pressure valve fittings as my fillport.

Flip it over. Problem solved. 3 port up top and 1 at the bottom.

I filled mine up by unscrewing the cap... once there was enough coolant in there I screwed it back up.

Cheers,

I just have the basic version. Pretty sick loop you've got there. I wish blocks were made for my Asrock board, cos it'd look a lot like that. Lots of $$$ thrown into that one smile.gif

Hmmm... it's an option.... Logistically I'll have to find a new way to route some wiring, but that is definitely an option.... I didn't want to do that but yours looks pretty good. Thanks. smile.gif

I had trouble getting to my fill port once my res was mounted. I have one fill port at the top. So I screwed a barb into the fill port and attached a long piece of tubing and then stuck a skinny funnel in the end of the tubing. It worked really well. The top of my fill port was too close to the top of the case so I had to do it this way but it ended up working really well.

Unscrew the top and fill it up.... Thats how i used to fill mine (in my old build). We also used to drop in ice cubs just to watch the temps drop.. Good times.
