Here is my completion videos. Sorry about the camera direction.

Very nice. You must be enjoying your machine now after such a long await.
You said that this is your first custom loop... well it's pretty impressive not only because of that, you have chosen nice components and their layout throughout STH10, great job I really like it thumb.gif

Did you run some test yet as far is temperatures goes, I'm curious what your cards and CPU are at, running few loops of Unigine Heaven-4 , let it run continuously for 15-20 min you will have good idea on how your temps are after water reaches its max temps.

Thank you very much. I have to thank everyone on this forum mostly for much of what I've learned. Also, a lot of youtube videos. I called my wife since she is out of town to let her know that I finished, and that I cleaned my office which has been the equivalent of a off limits, hard hat construction area since this whole process started.:biggrin.gif

As far as temps go, I have notices a big fluxuation in temps while the bubbles are getting worked out. At first I had the whole system sealed until I realized that some very large bubbles were getting trapped on the bends. Last night I removed the pressure equalisation membrane on top of the reservoir to allow the bubbles to cycle through easier, and kept the system running. Since I checked it this morning, it's still passing some large bubbles. I'll continue to let it run like this until that's done, and then I'll seal it up again. I have noticed that as the bubbles cycle through, the liquid stored in the reservoir has been decreasing, which looks to be replacing the air pockets in the loop with coolant.

I have attempted some moderate overclocking of the CPU though. It hit 4700MHz pretty easelly, which was a challenge with the old Intel CPU closed loop cooler I was using before.

It will take a while, days, week or even 2 weeks to get all, or should I say most bobbles out, especially with this size of a system.

What works well for me and I don't know if you can adjust your pumps speed through aquasuite like mine is, but I let the pump run on lowers speeds e.g. 2500-2700rpm and then run Valley to heat up the liquid , than while PC is running I load my profile "Bleeding" in aquasuite which is to all 4 of my pumps run at max speed, that gets ton and I mean ton of bobbles out, but you need to heat up your liquid, than after 1 minute I load my second profile "Normal Operation" and pumps are back to the original speed.

I do that every 2-3 hours and pretty much all bobbles are out within week, keep in mind I have big system so that's why takes that long to bleed it out, but now is absolutely quiet, no bobbles and it's been about 2 weeks since I have change my water.

Try it, you will know this once all of the bobbles are out that you might not necessarily get better temps, maybe 2-3C but your system will run quieter as I'm sure there might be some micro bobbles in your pumps (turbulence) since you run them at 100%.

This way works for me great, it might work for you as well, who knows you might even use that method.

Btw. I would have to go to the beginning of this thread, but what CPU do you have 4700 that's not bad at all and what temp you hitting

I'm running a 5930K which is a 3500MHz cpu. It's barely breaking a sweat a 4700. About 50C.

Sounds like you can easily push it much further, not that you have to, having it run at 4.7 at 50C that's plenty of speed at pretty cool temperature, obviously your loop is running as it should thumb.gif
Enjoy it.

Enjoy it.

BTW, your right about heating up the liquid. As soon as I start bench marking the bubbles seem to move like crazy. Also, I have three pumps running at 100% so it is helping. I am so glad that I chose to ignore the advice of the people telling me that I did not need a third pump. I think that it has made a big difference in bleeding the loop. The D5's are pretty quiet. With all three running at full I'm clocking them at 42.9dB.

Ok..I ran into a issue yesterday. I underestimated the power requirements of the Aquaero and the three modules attached. I'm using a Bitspower station for those, but I also have my three pumps attached to it. So my fans stopped working, and I was getting voltage errors on the Aquaero. My fans were so quiet that it I hadn't noticed until a few hours after it happened. The temps started to creep up but I thought it was due to overclocking. BTW, I am able to overclock the hell out of my 980Ti's now. Even with the fans off for a few hours, my gpu's were at about 60C and my CPU was 57C.

At first I did not realize that the bitspower wasn't receiving enough power so I shut down the system and after turning it back on everything started working fine again. Then after a few minutes the same thing started happening again. I shut off the system again and found that the 12V wire on the cable connecting the Bitspower and the power supply had fried. The Bitspower was drawing more power from the power supply then the wire could handle. Easy fix or so I thought. First thing was that I made a new power cable for the Bitspower. Next after I measured the distance between the Aquaero and the power supply, I realized that I was short on 18 gauge wire. In order to run and route the cable properly, it has to be 58" in length. I had just enough wire for three strands but not enough for the 4th wire. So, I had to place a quick order to PPCS which I had overnighted and will be receiving tomorrow morning. The real annoyance is that I was using this really awesome Teflon silver plated copper wire that I had purchased from modDIY and PPCS only sells it in 16 gauge. I LOVE sleeving with that wire. I can't praise it enough. The next time I build a system, I will be using that wire exclusively. Anyways, I had to settle for what they had in stock. SO, I'm in a holding pattern until tomorrow.

You di know you could of got the wire at home depot or similar??
