Hey, just thought I'd give an update. I finally got some stuff together and did some more testing. Here's most of it together, just no cabling or GPU:
Ready to go for leak testing:
All seems well, but I think I'm going to have to ditch the internal fitting for the fountain effect. Here's a shot:
Although it did create bubbles, they didn't seem to pass through the system as much as I thought they would. The real problem for me is the noise. The fountain effect when done this way is very loud. Even filling the res to the top and removing the piece, I still hear it. In order to remove all the bubbles and hopefully the noise, I think I'll need to get one of these to insert inside: https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-res-x3-internal-tube-12-16-40mm
Also, I may need to swap the 90* fitting on top of the res for a T-connector so that I can just fill through the top of the res, but not change my layout at all. It worked "ok" to fill the res and the radiator and then cycle it, but I can't really top off the res completely which may be a problem.
