Your best bet is to fill it up all the way to the top when your machine is off, and prepare for some spillage. The vacuum inside the reservoir will make it pretty difficult to get all the air out.

Edit: You could also try submerging the reservoir into a bath of liquid, turn on your machine, then cap your reservior while it's still submerged. That would take some work, though.

yeah, if you get that pump on the floor of your case or even sitting right behind your case you'll get more circulation and you can probably trim up your tubing some as well.

Your Rad may be OK, just make sure you get all the air out of it and your reservoir should be at the highest point so all the air in the system can escape to it.

yea, always have the res as the highest point and the pump as the lowest. this will greatly improve your flow because wc pumps are designed to push water thru the tubes, not pull it. also putting the res on the top will make bleeding your system easier... all the air will flow to the res... and the res doesnt hafta be 100% full of water, just as long as the ports are under water at all times.

your system should be set up like in the pic...

After reading, there might be a water flow problem with that pump being high.

It would be interesting to see what find of flow you are getting with the pump at the top. Not sure how you can accurately check this unless you have a flow indicator.

This is what you can do. Since you have a res, take the inflow tube off that feeds back into the res. Turn on the pump and let it pump through the system into a measuring cup, preferable the bigger the better. Maybe a pitcher with measurments on it. You don't want to flow to much as your res probably doesn't hold more than half a gallon.
Time how long it takes to flow, say, 2 cups of water into the measuring cup. Start time the moment water flows from the tube into the cup, and stop time when it reaches 2 cups.
Say it flows 2 cups in 7.5 seconds:
7.5 x 8= 60 seconds (1 min)
2 x 8= 16 cups (1 gallon)
so thats 1 gpm (gallons per min)
which is, uh, 60 gallons per hour

Try that, with the pump up high, and the pump low. Probably won't be much different. The pump will still need to lift the water up to the same point, it just does it more efficiently if it is being fed the water and can push it, rather than pull half of it up then push it back down.
I do hydraulic calculations for fire sprinkler system for work. so I have programs to calculate flow. If you do this, I would appreciate knowing your findings, as I may be able to use this info to some flow diagrams.

Ahken, many of us are using these pumps with success, no they are not the Cadillac of pumps but they do suffice. Most important is to follow instructions given by experienced members, don't just go off and do your own thing, now you see what happens when you do not take the advice of the veterans. The parts you have will work if put together properly.

When you apply the AS5 do not do it that way, follow the instructions on the Arctic Silver website otherwise you will not get the full benefit of AS5.

yea, the baggy trick is for other arctic silver products, with as5 you just put a lil dot about the size of 1/4 to 1/3 pea on the middle of your processor... it will spread out on its own when you put the block on

srry, i didnt see he posted that or i wouldve mentioned something earlier...
