It's fine as long as there's water in it, when the loop is full and bled it's no problem, but getting it primed, filled and bled is a whole different story. That said, a pickup tube going from the inlet down below the res' water level would allow some air to bleed out, but it's certainly not what I'd consider advisable... redface.gif

It doesn't seem like it's being primed at all. Unless I'm mixing up the inlet and outlet, but regardless if the outlet was pushing water through the res I think it would have a lot less pressure. And if the inlet is after the res I don't see how it's being primed well.

I had the mobo tray and top removed from mine for modding and the rest of the case still did not wobble:band:

cheers i cant wait i removed bottom harddrive got bit of steel made up to cover psu waiting on new radiators and gfx card and gpu block smile.gif

It's just not likely that it's getting an inlet of 100% water, it will get some water, but it's very possible to get air in there as well. Not lethal for the pump but certainly not how I'd do my loop... rolleyes.gif

As for the inlets, that top has inlets on the top and outlets on the side. The easiest way to remember that is that the wider threads around the inlet is for an EK multioption-link (or whatever it's called) to thread into... (surprisingly they design it for the res to be mounted over the inlet ninja.gif)

Edit: The configuration posted earlier has the pump-top rotated, so the 'top' where the inlet is, is technically the side. TLDR: line from top of res connects to pump inlet.

That's my point it doesn't seem like it's being properly primed upon startup and it doesn't look like the res is completely filled. Oh well whatever it's his PC...

I'm just saying that you can get around the gravity-feed issue by manually priming the pump the first time or tilting the case, but I have more reservations about the ability of the loop to properly bleed itself which is (in my mind) the more pressing concern for longevity. The bold in your quote speaks for itself rolleyes.gif

That's what I'm getting at the longevity of the pump and loop pressure/flow rate, it just doesn't seem optimal at all when looking at it. But as said it's his pc and you live and learn.
