Fastest way to bleed XSPC bay/res D5

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I will be putting together my loop this weekend and wanted to know before hand the best way to bleed the bay/res? I plan to set the D5 pump to 1 for quietness.

Again...if possible, I recommend buying a Y-splitter fitting and a drain valve.

Example of loop: radiator > y-splitter fitting (other end of y-splitter for drain valve) > drivebay reservoir.

Unscrew drain valve and then the reservoir intake g1/4 fitting. If this works with drivebay reservoirs, the coolant should then flow out of the drain valve.

I know you are trying to be helpful, but the OP is wanted to bleed the air out of the loop, not drain the loop.

OP - the XSPC bay res is a ***** to bleed, you need to find a way to block the flow from the return line a bit because air just gets sucked back through the pump and it actually takes forever to bleed. This happened on the older versions, but enough to stop me using it. I am not sure about the revision though, maybe they fixed this problem.

With a bay res I find something small enough (tongue depressor or something small and long) to block the path of the hole going into the pump. Do not block it off completely (duh) and block it so the bubbles run into something instead of being sucked into a pump. Also play with the speed nob.

I use dual (xspc) reservoirs but my process is to fill as much as possible then flip the case around (at a few angles...the idea being to get as much water into the loop and as much air as possible into the res) then fill up the res as much as possible again then flip, repeat until I can't get anymore water in. Then I put my case on it's back (so the res is facing upward) and at a slight angle (so the side of the res that feeds the loop stays pretty much still filled with water but the intake side can fill with air) and cycle the pump a sec which will push water through the loop and bring more air up into the intake side of the res. then top off as much as possible, repeat the momentary pump cycle, fill, repeat. Generally only takes a few minutes (in my dual rad loops). Hope that helps.

I cut a piece of tubing in quarters the long way and stick one piece inside the res right under where the water returns. Make sure you wash the tubing with DI H2O. It will take out the bubbles out quick. Been doing it for a few years now.

use something like this. Thats a plastic spoon i think. I have used zip ties but mostly tubing smile.gif
