I'm going crazy. it happened to me again last night. I got home from work and checked all my lines and everything was perfect. I thought maybe I had messed something up because it was 3am last time.
So I screwed the cap on the res and just left the little g1/4 hole open for air to escape.
The res was half full I started the pump and
BOOM another explosion. It was so much pressure that it forced the coolant right out the top g1/4 hole and went everywhere. I had a lot of things covered and my titans were completely off so I didn't hurt my components, but I have blood red coolant all over my brand new white sth10. I am so mad.
The amount of pressure that was forced back into the res was unbelieveable. I mean the coolant went everywhere, it even hit my bed and monitor.
I guess I have to disassemble everything but I did everything correct. I even checked last night.
The res is above the pump and all my lines flow in the correct direction and the return line comes from a rad into the res.
The wierd part is it seems the pressure is coming from the line that feeds the pump. I could be wrong because it happened so fast.
I'm thinking I should unplug one of my 35x pumps and just use one while filling.
