My advise is to keep doing it until one day you find you no longer need to. And do not panic, all seems good.
When I was running my XSPC 750 dual bay res. it took about 2-3 months if I remember correctly to get rid of all the air.

Not.

That said, 10-20 ml/wk is way high for permeable losses. I'm talking more like 10ml/year.

EXACTLY and not exactly, To note, most coolants are like 90% distilled water anyways.

So water evaporates... you get the idea.

though 10-20ml a week is kinda scary.

I might understand 10ml per month lol. Especially here in florida.

I have removed the pump/res, cpu bock, rad and the fittings makes no differance it seems to be drinking coolant everything it tight my temps are 36c at idle and about 46-52c under gaming load and prime is 55-60c yes it runs a little hot at times but the fan speed is only 800rpm. what i am asking does anyone know how offen a loop should be topped up.
How long has it been going on?
took me 3-4 days to add more coolant in my loop. Nothing has been added ever since

Thanx I'll keep at it as long as there is no leaks not much else i can do really.
Just had a nice air bubble go round the loop so there is a few more ml/s LOL anyway i have to say Thanx the the OCN Members in this thread as if it wasn't for you guys/girls i would of stuck with the Antec H20 620 i had and this loop even thoe only the cpu for now wipes the floor with my old set up's (had a 120mm rad befor the Black ice SR1 240) so thanx everyone.
