First watercooled build, GPU issues! - Page 2

post #11 of 17
you dont need the plug out to bleed it. unscrew the plug after you shut the pump off. i have no idea if your coolant will shoot out the res if you pull the top while the pumps on. it happened to someone else on the forum and no clue if it was sorted why it happened.
if you add a fill port and leave it open as you bleed it, coolant will climb the fill tube and come out the port. trust me on that thumb.gifmad.gif

so if i leave the plug out and I successfully bleed out air then the resovoir level should actuallly be lower once I shut the pump off. Currently it'll lower while in use then raise back up to a higher level.

The reason it lowers, is because it is filling all the empty spaces in your loop with coolant, such as that monsta rad. The level will go back up when you turn your pump off because the tiny air bubbles are rising to the top of your loop (radiator) and the coolant is refilling your res which is lower in your loop. While your pc is running, turn your computer everywhich way to dislodge air bubbles and get them to your res which should, by design, take the air out of your loop and collect it in the top of the res. Make sure you leave the plug in your res, or you will make a mess, and possibly soak some components, which is never good.

ok,. so i turned the case onto it's front side and ran it for a while. seemed to lower the res level an inch or so. I tried plugging in the 2nd monitor, still overheats quickly. I'll continue to tilt the computer at different angles and hopefully get all the air out. Am i better off leaving it at a tilted position for an extended period of time, or quickly tilting it back and forth? if i hear a bubbling noise should i keep it at that position for a while? or immediately tilt it back? thanks again

Try the extended period of time tilting, but also try shaking the piss out of it! lol I had to shake mine for a good 20 minutes before i got all the air out. You will notice your pump getting quieter and quieter as the air goes out of the system. You might notice tiny bubbles rising through the coolant in the res, this is the finely divided air that is in your loop, every tiny bubble from your loop that goes into your res will not re-enter your loop, unless you run really low on coolant, or you run your loop with your pc upside down.

If you want to avoid damaging your gpus, you can just run your pump by unplugging everything from your MB except the 24 pin connector, and unplug the PCI-e power from the gpus also. Then turn your pc on, your pump should run until you push the power button, but you will not be running voltage through your gpus or cpu.

Turning the pump up to full speed and power cycling it with the res top open and the res top closed will help with bleeding. Setting 2 is very low pressure on d5's

But that is very unlikely to have anything to do with the graphics card issue. It can really only be a mount problem that can cause that, or a PCI slot problem. A heavy GPU block can make positioning in PCI slots a pain in the arse.

Try to isolate the most likely position of the airpocket and tilt the rig to get that to the top. In my case it was the rear tank of my top UT60, I had to tilt it almost right forward then about 30 degrees to the right so it was diagonal, and bash on the side of the radiator at the same time. I did that briefly and noticed some bubbles coming into the res then I basically repeated that quite violent process until I saw and explosion of bubbles get ejected into the rez and with red coolant too, it was like red creaming soda and the coolant level in the res dropped about two inches, so there was quite a bit of air in there. Keep at it thumb.gif
