OK, you've got me puzzled now. Soapsuds? Why did you have soap suds in your loop?

And cooling despite bubbles? I get all bubbles out before I power up the PC by using a spare PSU (with the green wire in the 20pin/24 pin bridged to a black) running the pump alone, with all else unpowered.
Gurgling noises imply air, and AFAIK letting your pump shift too much air can be damaging?

Have I misunderstood something?

That just makes you smarter than most girls. wink.gif For the red UV tubing, don't be fooled by those pics. This Primochill LRT "red" stuff looks more orange than red under the UV light (looks red in normal light). I ordered some other stuff that's supposedly "blood red", but we'll see. The red LEDs in the Raystorm block really help take the "orange" color of the tubing.

Posting this from the machine! Wooohooo, no more netbook! thumb.gif

I ordered the same Primochill tubing. How much of it did you need? I only ordered 3 feet! And how many cathodes are you using?

Did you order the new stuff, or the old?

I'm running this old stuff: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_413_292_1152&products_id=23364

The new "really red" stuff I ordered today is this: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_413_292_1153&products_id=36322

For my build, I bought 10 ft of red, and I had 10 ft of clear that came with the XSPC kit. I used the clear stuff to measure the lengths I needed, and to do leak testing. That way I wouldn't waste the red working out the proper length. What you need really depends on your loop, case size, and lots of other things. I hope you ordered 3 meters. smile.gif

EDIT: one cathode mounted on top, and there's one inside the helix reservoir.

Okay, I ordered another 3 feet! I think I've got the old stuff. And please check out my build log!

I really need to learn how to work a camera properly. Or maybe read the Canon manual:


Working out the bubbles:


Temperature testing with a mild overclock (4.3Ghz), Prime 95 and FurMark to bake the GPU. LOVING these temps!!

jeez man you gotta take things a bit more slowly lol when i read you doused your hard drives i thought the build would be put on hold for quite some time. i would have let those sit in rice for a couple days at minimum.

glad your reflow process worked..at least it seems so. then again 6c degrees doesn't seem like a big difference from an h100. but then again you're also cooling the gpu. to be honest i'd get rid of the tube res. only because you're running it as a redundant res and only really need the bay res.

i have 2 res' in my Narada build but that's because the pumps are in series, and it matches the rest of the loop nicely. i'd sell it and use the money for another radiator myself thumb.gif

seems like you've dodged a few bullets here. glad that's happened!

Just thought I'd jump in here and say that adding a drop of soap to your loop actually makes bleeding 100x faster, as it breaks the surface tension of the water, allowing the air bubbles escape faster.

 

I wasn't a believer in this method until I tried it out.
