Bubbles in res every time I turn on system

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I am wondering if this is an issue or nothing to worry about but every time I turn on my system (cold boot) bubbles come up in my reservoir. My rig is in my sig. I have a 400mm EK X3 res and it is very full so there is no way the air is being pulled in through my pump. Is it common to see this? It is not a ton of air but it does worry me because I don't know where it is coming from!

I water cooled my rig (just the CPU) about a month ago and watched about every video there is. I have checked for leaks - there are none. I've tried tipping it in every direction and no more air bubbles come out. I've also tried changing the pump speed and still no bubbles.

If anyone can shed some light on this situation, it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Healey

Maybe you have air on your rad.

Even submarines, which is fully submerged can create bubbles. If I am right about your situation, then it is your pump creating cavitation.

Like I said, I don't think so because I've tilted it in every possible direction and I have been using it every day for almost a month, turning it off every night.

Has anyone experienced this before?

Looks like my leak checking needs some work. CPU waterblock was leaking. Not from the fittings, but the waterblock itself. I haven't touched it to try and replace the jet plate or anything... time for rma I guess
