whoops, forgot the pic:

Referring to the "Watercooling Fail" video and the discussion of it here, when you fill it are you leaving a port open on the reservoir so that air can escape? I normally fill from the top of the res, remove funnel, power up briefly then repeat.

Fill them, from the top ports, when the system is completely dry. This reduced bleeding time on my system by a good 20-30 minutes. Specially with the vertically mounted front radiator.

As said above, you 100% need to leave the reservoir open when bleeding. fill, power on, let drain, turn off, rinse repeat. Though, I have found that sealing the reservoir for 2-3 seconds while bleeding can help suck pesky air bubbles out of the system.

I'm filling from the top of the reservoir with a tube connected to a G1/4 funnel. Powering on initially draws water out of the res and into the pump, but then after like 30 seconds it stops and nothing else happens. Left it like this for an hour or so and nothing further happens. Could it be because I have that right angle coming out of the pump?...I don't think that should be an issue...

I'll try leaving a second port on top open on the res, but I don't see how that would help considering the fillport is open already on top of the res.

edit: yep, same thing. Water doesn't even make it up out of the first radiator.

I momentarily loosened this stop plug on the bottom GPU, and while water spurted out, air escaped and my loop started to flow.....so there must be some ginormous air pockets in there? Not sure how to relieve that pressure.

i have never left my res uncapped to fill and bleed my system. the air isnt escaping anywhere. it is being displaced by the water. an airlock is caused by a different reason.

Are you using two returns? I'm not familiar with how the Aqualis works, so i'm curious why you have 3 connections to the pump/res combo.

The D5 should have plenty of power to push through that loop.

I'm not real familiar with your res, but it looks like you have the pump output going to the front rad, then somehow, (it's not visible in the pic) to the top rad, and then down to the top GPU, to the lower GPU, and lastly to the CPU and back to the res.

With the fittings at the bottom of the front rad, I'd bet you're air bound, and can't push coolant thru that rad.

The coolant in the tube to the GPU is just water seeking its own level from what's in the res backing out the inlet tube.


Can you clarify your pump's in and out, and your loop order, please


If I'm on the right track, loosen the tube at the top rad to upper GPU fitting, wrap a big towel around the area, and power up the pump.

Water should come after a lot of air.

Yep, you're spot on about my loop order and pump in/out. From the front rad's bottom back port I have a tube running up the front panel, then alongside the top rad to the back port of the top rad, then everything else is as you described.

The inlet on the reservoir pushes water up that steel pipe in the middle to create a fountain effect out of the top of it.

Would it accomplish the same thing to open this port on the top rad and power the pump on, or should I just loosen that GPU --> top rad connection like you said?

How do you mean? If it's a sealed loop and the air doesn't escape it can't be displaced by the water, the only option is for the air to become compressed.
