Watercooling questions fast response from hihly experienced :D

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Okay so listen say if i added some of termatakes super coolant to my watercooling system and i have about 1000cc and im worried it just may not be enough well do you guys think i could get away with adding some water to it if i need slightly more?? Because its advertised as nonconductive and if i add water to it will it take that property away? or like i could just test it with a multimeter and check for continuity no?
link to TT super coolant


and one more thing i plan to mount the radiator on top of my case and have a reservoir mounted in the highest point in my case (5.25 bay) is there any special way you guys know how to bleed the air since the reservoir isnt in the high place? Could i like lay it on its side to fill it? or maybe drill a whole inthe radiator take and solder me in a air bleed or what? please help! I am not experienced greatly in watercooling and this is my first attempt!

For the love of god... DO NOT DRILL A HOLE IN YOUR RADIATOR!

The air bubbles will work their way into the res. You may have to tilt your case a few times. Eventually, they will get trapped in the res chamber especially tilted. The water flows very rapidly and any bubbles should move with the water until the res.

I guess you can add DISTILLED water to the loop. Not sure, are you talking about that Thermaltake (ded chou misspelll it badily?) fluid? My guess is they're using distilled water with an additive as well. Don't quote me on that though!

Yeah I can't answer that about the fluid either, just add some distilled water to it if you need to and hope for the best....If you have your tubing running to your rad on the back-side of your case just lower your rad lower then your res....If your res is in the top bay maybe you could pull it out and get it higher then the rad....If everything is already buttoned down thats about all you can do, tilt it around and work the air out...Make sure you don't tilt it so the pump isn't getting water....

Move the reservoir above the highest point, or put in a T-Line.

TILT! just like a pinball machine...it helps work out the bubbles. Helps get the air out quicker.

Air-
as the chaps said, like in my system, the air bubbles will all work their way out, a T-peice/fillport is pretty damn good at getting air out.

coolant-
dont use any water! id buy another tub of coolant. luckily when i had TT coolant and ran out I have a reverse osmosis water demin plant at work which takes everything out of the water so its pure H2O which doesnt conduct electricity so unless you have a reverse osmosis plant buy more coolant!

hehe yup its actually all of the impurities in water that allow current flow

in our cooling towers at work , demin (pure pure) water lowers the conductivity of the whole system cuz its so pure (need certain conductivity for chemicals to work most efficiently)

i found it strange when i first found out too
