If I could just get temps down consistently to below 70C without having to delid, I'd be happy until my tweaking itch comes back rolleyes.gif
I would get the air out of the loop first, then make an assessment from there smile.gif but doing a delid will improve the efficiency of your loop. If you run your P.C with the lid off expect at best a 5 degree C drop in CPU core temp, its not a huge drop.

Would leaving the plug open do anything really? Any air trapped in the system should be dispelled by liquid and end up in the reservoar (which would then have a smaller amound of liquid in it)

Unplug the PWM header and run the pump at 100% for a few days to get the air out, that's all I did when I built mine smile.gif You need to increase pump speed in particular to get the air out of the CPU block.

And the res plug? Open or closed? I'll try this later today

I left mine in the air will work its way to the top thumb.gif

BTW, your RAM is installed wrong. They're not running in quad channel.

Yes, the front panel is on, I'll try removing the front and top panels as suggested here. The RAM is actually installed correctly as the 7740X only supports dual channel.

Pretty sure I read somewhere else in the forums that leaving the plug helped to dispel the air, I can't rem the exact reason why but I think it was something to do with pressure. I left mine out over a few days and you could visually see on the res that the level dropped

Leaving the plug out will help remove the air quicker but ultimately the air will still works its own way out regardless if it is in or out

It can't do any harm I guess, it's not like it will suck air in through the top. I'll give it a shot.

So I disconnected the pump pwm connector to leave it running at full speed. I now hear a sound kind of like water trickling or a tiny creek (sorry, it's the best way I can describe it). Seems to be coming from my front rad. Is this air being displaced by liquid or perhaps the other way around?
