GPU Bubbles

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just added my GPU to my loop. An EK Nickel block to be exact. After about a half an hour of bleeding I noticed that there is a constant stream of bubbles coming out of my GPU outlet. There are no leaks anywhere and I don't see any other bubbles besides the gpu outlet. I can't figure out what it is.

Huh...Have you tried tilting your box around a little to try and work it out, in case there is a little pocket of trapped air in it...Double check your barb to block unions and tube to barb unions...Make sure all the screws in the block are snugged up well...If all else fails you might want to put a sheet of printer paper under it and turn your pump off, see if you get any drips under, maybe you have a hair-line crack in it somewhere..If they are really fine cracks it might take all night to get any drips out of it....

dont worry about it.. so long as all conections are tight..
ive just had to strip down my loop and every time i do it. i get a big stream from my gpu. it stays for a day or two. i find that warimg the system up and a couple restarts with 20 mins between to let things settle.
somtimes i tap the tubes lightly to encourage the bubbles to one area. so when i boot thay get dumped back into my t-line.
basicly there is a air pocket in your gpu.. so long as your temps are ok.........just sit it out

I've been keeping an eye on it all night and haven't detected any drops. I will try checking for a crack and let it run over night. I hope it works itself out in a couple of days. I had never used a gpu block before, so I didn't know if it was normal or not. Thanks for the help guys.
