Use the included jumper so that your PSU powers everything up except the mobo/drives. Pump will be running then so you can start tilting and shaking the computer case. Make sure to attempt to get air out of the rad also before getting any air out of the pump.

there wasnt any air there 3 days ago..
it's slowly building up.
from the angle. the only way i could get the air pocket out is turning the pump upside down which is impossible.

I installed and did all the motions to free the system of all air. My rad is top/external mounted (horizontally - barbs facing down). This was the best position I could achieve with the stock tubing to avoid any kinks. All seemed well. After 2 days my pump started in with a rattling noise. Forum members and XSPC suggested I "shake, rattle and roll" my machine to make sure ALL air was out. I was convinced it was but I like to cover all my basese... all the time... so I did as suggested.

BAM! 2 rather large air bubbles came out of the rad as I was trying to insure I had no more air in the pump! Surprise... surprise... surprise. As luck would have it, these bubbles had nothing to do with my pumps rattling noise (which is being replaced btw). But with time, those bubbles in the rad could breakdown, make their way into the pump and cause all sorts of inconsistencies (poor water flow, higher temps, additional noise, and to an extreme maybe even damage the pump - who knows).

Now... if you tighten carefully the reservoir fill cap (assuming you are using the XSPC reservoir), you can invert the machine upside down and do a little shaking. But let me ask you this... are you seeing very small bubbles? If so, let the pump do its work. I assure you that these bubbles will go away in about a day or two. When I initially installed my kit, I had all sorts of small bubbles flowing around. It is inevitable but they just went away on their own basically.

Once again.. I stress the use of the PSU jumper adapter included with your kit for the above step.

I know it's extra work but you will be satisfied with the knowledge of knowing you did everything you could to insure a properly functioning loop. I am sure others here would suggest the same or even better steps to take. Wait a few hours to see who else chimes in with your situation. I am rather new to all of this and can only relate my experiences to you.

I know exactly what cup you're referring to. I also had bubbles accumulate in it. Do what Kahbrohn said. Jumper the cable then tilt the computer just enough so that the air comes out of the cup (almost upside down but not quite). Worked great for me. No more bubbles and pump is quieter.

Nice... Brand new install, right? (can tell by the small bubbles still lingering in the tubing - they will go away though)

The 360 Radiator will hit the 5.25" Drive Bay support bar using the pre-drilled holes on the top beam of the case - the holes work fine for the shorter 240 rads. So you'll just have to line up the 360 radiator the the position you like it at and drill 4 holes on the top beam to secure it. Mine are only a cm or so away from the stock holes. I lined up the middle hole of the back 120mm part of the radiator to the beam in order to secure it. This puts the front part of the radiator halfway into the to 5.25" drive bay, others have mounted it farther back.

Whatever preference you have is up to you. I took off the front door so the front fan on the radiator pulls in air through the mesh panel of the top 5.25" drive bay and it works well. Only minor drawback is you won't be able to mount 3 120mm fans on the top of the radiator as the top panel is closed there. So I have three fans under pushing air up and two up top pulling air out through the top mesh of the case. I tested it out of the case with three fans on each side vs the 3/2 and there was no readable difference in temps.

I replaced all the NZXT 120mm fans with Cooler Master R4-L2R-20CR-GP's for the red led effect and good airflow. The fan controller is very useful with these. The ones on the Rad are silent ata any speed, yet the side two fans make a bit of a hum at full speed, not sure why, but even at med or low speed they still keep the HDD's cool, plus there's the front 120mm/140mm fan slot if you need more cooling there... I have 5 HDD in the rack and they're cool at low fan speed. I may try Scythe Noiseblockers (1850rpm) just to compare, but they're much more $$ than the CM R4's.

Thanks for the info!
