By the way, ya dont open sleeving to jump start PSU, ya remove MoBo connector and jump across terminals. Google "PSU paper clip trick", tho I highly recommend the avove alternative.... watch the Singularity Computer videos on Youtube, he uses it on every build.

2. I'd add some 45's....don't like that kink....especially on a suction line.

3. You turned ya CPU cooler over....I am familiar with the extremesystems testing but I walked away with the impression that just horizontal and vertical orientations were tested. Don't know that ya helped anything by changing as it'sHS orientation relative to CHIP that matters.

4. I don't like the tilt on ya res.

5. RAM Slot switch will perform better.

Hehe thanks for the input, the tilt on the res is gone, I got an adaptor to sort that out. I had a spare PSU lying around so I tested the paper clip trick and it worked perfectly. No more kinks on the suction line either, so things are looking better thanks you all of you guys' input.
I'll probably do a final test today and then see if everything boots up, never know, i might have damaged something wink.gif
When it comes to the CPU orientation I have no idea how much difference any orientation makes, time will tell I guess.

So... I have attached the new rad, refilled the loop. Found a leak, fixed that, tried again, and it has been running for about 15 mins now with no leaks. Obviously gonna let it run for a while. The thing I´m wondering though is its still pretty noisy, as in, lots of splishy splashy noises. Should that go away after a while? And am I supposed to bleed it while leak testing with the fill port closed up or with it open so the air can escape? And how full should my res be? It´s like a little less than half full now. Should i top it up?

EDIT: the noises are definitely coming from the rads. Cant see any air bubbles...

Trapped air...... do ya rads have i.e. Alphacool) and can ya access ya top rad ports ? If so easy solution.

1. Did ya set up rads like this ?




2. If so put a book under back end of case and turn off pump.... now take out both top plug and add coolant.

3. Turn on pump, rinse and repeat

4. Now ya vertical rad prolly also has air trapped.... tilt case on side to that outlet is "on top." Run pump to expel any air trapped there.

5. Lay case on right side, prolly air trapped in CPU / GPU blocks ... turn on pump to try and dislodge

6. If ya see any bubbles in tubes at any point , tilt case to move toward res.

7. Evacuate any extra air ya don't want in res.

8. Repeat step 2 and 3

But easier with this as ya can fill tube with liquid and let air bubble out.

Air doesn't escape, it goes to the res. If you see the water level has gone down, add more water. Tilt the case so that the top radiator ports are higher and shake it a bit, looks like there's air trapped in your rads.

Do you have a vortex in the res?

Uhm... I tried googling it but I am not sure how to determine if i have vortex or not.
I got the EK multi option 15 cm, and i did not put the little round metal thread thing and plastic thing in it as i don't know what they are rolleyes.gif

Yes, worth investing in whatever it takes to make the job easier....air does come out in the res.... but I have twice now removed the top rad plugs.... when i sealed them, that is screwed them in, coolant spilled over onto the paper towel I had wrapped around the riser. And than when I opened them after 30 and 60n days of use....there was air in them again.

First time the air that had collected went below the two 30mm extensions and into the rad ....2nd time I was only about half way down in the riser,...so 15mm x 2 x diameter of the G1/4 fitting.

So...
Got everything up and running now.
Have been running valley for about 30 mins at max settings and 1440p.
Gpu temps have been slowly but steadily rising and are now at 55.
What max temps should i be getting on water? IF it makes any difference I´m using ice dragon fluid.
I just have two fans on each rad, one push and one pull. (top one pulling, front one pushing...maybe a crap idea?)
also, still lots of splashing going on. And the worst part is now my PSU has some bad coil whine it didn't have before i installed the loop.
mad.gif edit: i have my GPU overclocked to 1204 at 1.121 volts... Which is max. CPU at 24,2 @1,25

Your GPU temps looks good. If your below 60 degree C at full load, I would be happy with that. Obviously proper fan setup should get you better temp results. Sure you'll get that eventually situated. Coil whine sucks. If your PSU is doin that, it either being pushed to the limits due to your OC or its going bad.
