Ya thats why I ask it didn't make logical sence to me unless there was a air large air pocket....
Just trying to load windows i'll give the case a shake and do a quick leak test thanks
BTW apart from shaking any tips on getting water out of the top 2 480 rads
I experienced the same issues (not really an issue) and made a lot of researches about this physic phenomenon. Like the other said, it's because of air pocket.
Tilt the case around or turn the pump on and off and leave the Reservoir open when the loop is running
. If you have to much water in the reservoir and you then turn off the pumps while the Res is open, the water will spill out.
Sometime there is also another reason for this level drop especially if you have a big loop with many blocks in it: Restriction
. I experienced this phenomenom when I had my loop for a while and didnt realize that my CPU block acted as a filter (because of EK nickel plating
) and it was all gunked up. I had to find out the source of the restriction and dissassamble the CPU block and clean it thoroughly. Since then, the loop was fine.
If you have a Drain T-Line, don't forget that the water will take time to go there especially if you don't open the line to let the air out.Time
will also help to bleed the air out. I don't even tilt the case, I let the pumps do their job, but I open the Reservoir from time to time to let the air out. My case is over 100 lbs and with a Reservoir mounted at the back, I prefer not to tilt it.
Anyway, that was my 2 cents Edited by KaRLiToS - 3/30/12 at 5:06am
