you can try tilting your case back and shake a bit, but make sure your connection are secure and let it run for a bit. Hope that helps

Yeah if you have a D-5 vario set it down on #2 and it will bleed a little faster. If you have a bay res put a thick phone book under the front of your case, that will keep coolant over the barbs in the back of the res, keeps it from sucking air back into the loop.

Shake your rad up or whack it with the heel of your hand to knock air out of it, like everyones saying tilt your case around,shake your pump to get any air out of it, hit the tubing with a screwdriver handle or something to knock the little bubbles off your tubing. Turn your pump on and off every now and then to work the air out. It will work out eventually, some bleed faster then others just depending on loop configuration. Seems like it takes forever the first time you bleed one..

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.

You wont regret it, just take your time and be careful and theres nothing to it.

Yeah just have your res at the highest point and shake and tap around on the other components and work it towards the res, just like you were saying. Turn you pump off every now and then and shake it a little to, then turn it back on.

Are you using some kind of additives? That might be causing some of the foam in your res, it will work out sooner or later....The later part is what always bugged me..
