Can't wait to fill this thing up. No leaks so far, though air proved that last night just honestly since I"m unfamiliar w/ pumps I only thought to check fittings etc, never thought...

Is it odd that I haven't seen water enter the Tube res at all, like it goes in and out the bottom w/o ever giving a hint it touched the glass part.

I thought you were going to have the tube res so fluid came in the top and out the bottom so it was actually part of the flow path, why did you change it so both the inlet and outlet are at the bottom, how is the air supposed to get out of the reservoir if the fluid comes in the bottom and out there too?

Speedfan comes to mind first. And most asus driver disks come with a fan control software. It's usually part of the Asus AI Suite.

I unfortunately don't have my photon yet so I can't say 100% either way on the top plug. (I don't mean the black cap, just the oversized stop plug with the coin slot). If it is running now, it should run better half full as it won't introduce air bubbles into your loop down the road. Depending on the orientation of your bay res and where it's inlet is, if you flipped your case 90 degrees along any axis this should allow air to leave the tube res. this might even work with your rig powered off as the air would naturally move to the highest point in your loop. The air will however end up somewhere else in your loop which will need to be bled (if using this method).

The easiest and most controllable way IMO would be to try loosening the top stop plug, but I would wait for someone else with more experience with that res to confirm this poses you no problems thumb.gif

All the best,

Beat me to it lol

I've never used SpeedFan but have heard good things.

And the Asus suit should allow you to do it as well.

huh? I never changed anything, I've been saying for the past 20 pages or so how it is , nothing's changed from then, people keep changing the story on how the flow is though LOL. I never stated I was going to have anything come in from the top.

It's ALWAYS been w/ the inlet and outlet on the bottom, the top isn't mean for in/out its to seal the glass lol, and POSSIBLY for filling ( but noones been able to answer that question since round 1 )

This is something you'll need to ask the MFC about because I don't have the expertise to answer this nor do I understand enough to explain it. It's just a reservoir that's how it was designed. So far from the way I have it set up there was no issue w/ water circulating.

There is no issue with water circulating because you are maintaining pressure in the loop. However, the air pressure in the res is the reason it's not filling up.

Solution: one way or another you need to release that air to fill the tube res thumb.gif I believe the top port can be used as fill port but am not 100% certain.. Seem to remember reading it somewhere but I can't find the post right now.

Edit: missed a few posts, silly mobile not loading properly. Hope you get it sorted out!

Edit 2: somehow copied the wrong quote. I think it's bed time for me, 12:30am over here in Ontario thumb.gif

Ahh it's not a bigger if I don't need to fill it up was just curious mainly, still working around w/ modificaitons while waiting for Tuesday to arrive. Sucks FCPU doesn't support same day shipping/delivery I'd actually pay for that just to get this thing finally up and running. There's enough water in there to fill up the other RAD's so at least I'm glad they're not leaking anywhere.

Pretty sure Asus's software is called Fan Xpert. When I still had my Sabertooth X58, I used it a little for the stock CPU cooler and some case fans before I had my loop installed and it worked pretty well. Easier to use than speedfan too in my experience. You can set curves, or step ups, to change the speed based on temps. But if you want it to remain the same speed at all times, you would just make a straight line. As Jimhans1 said, speedfan would work as well. And so would pc-ill's suggestion

You don't NEED to fill the res up, but you don't NEED to water cool your PC either thumb.gif at least your other rads are problem free! Next day shipping would be awesome if they could do it.
