How to fill a loop from a res?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi there, I've never watercooled before so i have a question.

I have seen videos of people filling their loops from a t-line and it looks pretty straight forward, however I can't seem to find a guide/video for filling the loop from a resevoir.

Is it basically the same as using a T-Line? Because the res that I have ordered has a fillport on the top which you can connect a barb to and then fill it up using some tubing. But does the res have to be on the top of the case for the entire loop to fill?

If anybody could clear everything up, that would be great.

it doesn't have to be on top of the case.. just above the pump.. it just helps with bleeding if its above everything else.

so you would have everything wired....

res-> pump-> rad-> blocks-> back to res.

so now its a closed loop. that fill port on top.. just open it up and start filling it with coolant. tilt your computer so that as much coolant leave your res and refill. once you've filled it to a decent amount. jump your psu to turn on your pump.. it'll start cycling the coolant. if there is still not enough coolant continue filling until desired amount is reached.
