EDIT: You are going to have a little difficulty with air bubbles in the rad since it is mounted barbs down. Not a biggie, just tip the rad barbs up for a sec and out will come the bubbles.

do I want the pump running while I do this?

and what do you man by barbs down? the res has barbs that come straight out

1. Yes do the tapping with the pump running.

2. When you mount the rad on the back of the computer, are the barbs going to be on top or on the bottom?

I haven't decided yet, but I think most likely they will be on the top

I know I mounted them on the bottom when I put the radbox together, but I can switch it.

Having them on top will allow for the air bubbles to escape easier when filling/bleeding. And Hydor's are not super quiet pumps. I was going to get one until I found out they can get noisy.

alright thanks.

yeah, the pump is quieter now that I got the water out, but it's still a bit noisy. I think if I put it on the suction cups it will help as it will isolate the vibrations.

If it is vibration that is making the noise, then yes the cups will dampen that. All mag drive pumps have that vibration.

well part of it is vibration, but the pump itself is making noise. it sounds like when my wife first turns on her fish tank pump before it is completely full of water.

Is that held on with an adhesive pad?
