It depend on how much room you have in there. I didn't remove mine, but I have a small mobo in a big case, and girls hands.

Forum misbehaving? Yes. It didn't load your triple post until I'd deleted the second mispost... been a bit wonky for a few days. If anyone triple/double posts in this thread, I'll fix it.
Thanks Alan! As for air trapping, here's the thing. I think the reservoirs are meant to work upright, but I had to lay the pig on its side for the reflow. So there was all kinds of soap suds:
So I have no idea. Even with all those bubbles, the system was cooling things just fine, albeit with a lot more gurgling noises. When I killed the pumps, the temp shot to 100c and stayed there. Turned them back on after 4-5 minutes and the temp dropped immediately. No idea what the hell happened, but nothing cooked, so that's a plus.
