You just have it all loose then, I have one hanging here on my bench like that I'm bleeding out to.
That should make it a little easier to bleed, just put your res up at the highest point and work the air towards it. You'll have to do a little bleeding once its installed probably, unless you real careful not to get anymore air back into it when your tying it down.
I always leak test my components out of the case like that, res can be cracked or a pump may have a bad seal. I'd still jump your PSU and leak test it once you have it all installed in the case. Barbs can back out or whatever. Put some pieces of printer paper under your barbs and you'll see any little leaks from water drops. I always add a a couple of drops of UV additive to, then I turn the light off and go over it with a little 4" UV cold cathode, even tiny little leaks really glow under the light.
I've never had any water damage yet, knock on wood..
..I don't mind volting my rigs to death but I'd hate to lose one to water leaks or condensation.
Leak test, leak test some more and when your really sick of leak testing do it again..
..Wc'ing is safe if your careful, but don't ever take it for granted either, it can bite you quick if you do.
