bleed test issues with fillport and res (pictures)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
im in the leak test / bleeding of my water cool case.
i have a fill port AND a reservoir. i have a mc655 pump,
and i'm pretty sure that the it is full almost completely,

my question is the RES is CLOSED
and the FILLPORT is open - at the moment.
at random moments, bubbles (average size) come
out of the res into the pump, but it has been doing
this constantly with no sloshing stop.

IS IT OK TO HAVE BOTH A RES AND A FILL PORT?
SHOULD THE RES BE FILLED ALL THE WAY?

the res looks almost full, and when i put the pump on "5"
the res sloshes

will the res always do this with the water (push it against the side)?
should i fill the res up all the way, i mean completely full?
how long should i bleed it before i start to worry?
(its been about an hour now)

Personally I completely filled my res and didn't have this issue.

yes fill port and res in 1 loop is okay.

Its normal to have bubbles like that, just wait a bit let it run over night, mine took about 3 days to totally clear up.

and no dont fill the res up full.

And put a little more in the T line, fill it half way and leave it open like you are.

Make sure you have something over the fillport, so no dust and all gets in there.

The sloshing in the res will always be there, guess you should of got a step res....
those flat ones are known to slosh, its because the pump is a strong one.
