The outlet is just a compression fitting to tube- compression to cpu inlet,

Inlet has extender-compression-tube-t-fitting - compression - rad if that helps

The small bubbles eventually disappear over time (run it for about 48 hours)

Any ideas at all? Thank you

Hmm. Pump normally makes lot of noise when you run air (bubbles) through it. Once system is air-free it quiets down.

The way I get the air out of my system is by running the pump at max and tilting the case gently, until you hear the air move. If there is a big air pocket you will hear it when it dislodges and see the air appear in the tubes. What works best in my experience is tilting it forward and backward with the reservoir closed. No need to rock it back and forth just gently increase the angle until you hear the air moving. I will then put the case level and run it for an hr or 3 with reservoir open to remove smaller bubbles, then rinse and repeat. I typically also run it overnight with res open just to remove the tiny bubbles.

Everything he said was correct except one thing.
There is zero reason to ever leave your res open. It does not allow air to escape from the loop like many state, it just gives the system a source of potential leak.

The reason is that air coming out of someplace like the rad is going to get replaced by liquid from the res, and the water that replaces the air will make room for that air in the res.
You are simply moving stuff around within a closed loop, so no need to open the res up while running the loop.

If you only have some bubbles (big ones) when you tilt the PC around, I wouldn't worry about it.

The question is, are your CPU temps (since you didn't water cool the GPU as well) better now vs. before you made your custom loop?

If yes, then I think you did it right.

Hey guys sorry for a late reply my cpu 2600k is currently sitting at idle 32-45 degrees on coretemps (core #0) it seems to jump very high at times

I have been doing that I got alot of air bubbles come out, but if I tip my pc to the side and hold it, it seems like there is alot of the loop has no liquid

Bump

Anyone have any more suggestions at all?? Thank you

If it seems to be not enough liquid, it means there is still air in the loop (a lot of air). Once u remove the air u need to top it up with water.

I had the same situation as u. What I did was when the rocking motion did not help anymore I laid the case flat instead. But for this to work your res must be closed off properly. Then u can basically tilt the case 90-180 degree. Once u start to see the air pocket moving u can gently nudge it with the tube. That's how I remove my big air pocket.

Hope this helps.
