Do I buy deionized water to pour in with that fluid xp or does the fluid xp deionize the water itself? What kind of ratios am I looking for? From what I've heard, 90% water and 10% coolant is needed. Will I need any other water additives? It would be nice if someone could point me to a bleedig guide.
Since you are using a res bleeding will be very easy. Your res will be right before your pump intake, so fill the res and turn on the pump. Keep filling the res as the pump sucks the liquid through it and into the loop. Fill it all up and let it run with the res' cap off and shake all your parts and tap the tubing to get all the air out. You will want your res at the highest point for this.

You need to use the fluid XP straight. Do not cut it with water. Depending on how big your res is you may need two bottles. A system with 2 CPU clocks, 240 BIP, pump and T line takes about half a liter.

How many bottles do you think I will need based on what I have posted so far. How will I be able to bleed with my rad at the top instead of my res? Also, how should I go about sealing my pump and rad to my case. I assume I will need to attach feet to the rad in order to allow airflow from the bottom. I looked through the pics of people's water cooling, but I can never finda pic with a clear shot of the rad.

It will be about 1 bottle...I can't say for sure.

If you want your rad on top, you will have to leave your res tubes really long, pull your res out and hold it at the highest point till bleed...Much easier to hang it on a rad-box on the back of your case....

If anyone knows of an easier way please tell him because I don't know of any other way....

If the Rad was on the inside of the case he could just leave it unmounted. then mount it after the air is out.

Yeah Buddy, That would work ....But I think he wants to put it on the outside top, I think anyway...

Hey, I don't know why I didn't think about this before.. Instead of using a res use a Fil-Port. Mount it in the top of your case then it will just be a simple matter to raise it up a few inches to bleed your loop. It's just held on with a large lock-nut, simple......Danger Den :: Misc.

How should I mount stuff to my case? What should I use to mount? Some kind of glue/adhesive? Velcro? Screws? How do I go about attaching legs?

How does attaching the rad inside the case work? Same questions as above.

Buddy some of this stuff your just going to have to use your imagination on...You would need to get some 6/32 all thread rod's and nut's cut to however long you want to make your stand-offs for your rad....You could use brass, copper, aluminum, stainless tubing, just whatever look you want.Drill the right size holes in the top of your case for the all thread....You could use some rubber plumbing flat washers, the kind that just have a small center hole in them for your top and bottom trim for the tube...Just make sure you make square cut's in your tubing or it wont look good....

I say path 1 is definitely your best bet - the GPU will generate a lot more heat than your CPU, and GPUs are used to running at higher temps than CPUs. Therefore, you should have the coolest water you have in your system (fresh from the radiator) going to your CPU, and the GPU shouldn't mind having slightly warmed (from the CPU) liquid coming into it.

I'm not sure if you're supposed to dilute Fluid XP with water, read the bottle when you get it - if you do add water, use distilled water. About the tubing - I had a pretty crazy set-up for a while with 4 blocks (CPU, GPU, HDx2), a 1-bay reservoir, and a 120 radiator - it only required about 4 ft of tubing to get all that connected, and that system took about 45oz of fluid to fill it.

Good luck with your system - they're time-consuming to setup, but totally worth it once you get it working!
