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.


thank you for a reply, sorry its taken me a while to reply, have had some bad storms where i am living ill give that try, i have been putting the case on its side and doing that, but my res has about 3cms gap ill fill it up some more and i will try that, thank you

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.


hey thank you for a post, i have tried everything you guys have stated above, i still have no luck with getting more air out, a bit came out my current temps at the moment 31-41 degrees on idle, pump is still loud, any other ideas i could try? should i just run the loop for a few more days see if more air will leave the loop?

thank you

shake your pc. enough of the gentle crap. shake it while running and shake it with it off. make sure you dont let the pump run dry. keep it fed with coolant as youre shaking and tilting it.

if youre stable, thats good temps for where you are with those ambient. australia is a pc temp killer. its still a bit high but its closer to where it should be. glad you got the bubbles out.
