It's been like that for about 2 weeks. I keep pinching the line...it disappears and I bleed out whatever I can through the reservoir.

I know my gpu blocks are very restrictive. Could that be the issue? Would getting a stronger pump solve the problem? I am using an MCP355 pushing through 4 blocks and a radiator.

Is it even a problem? I probably wouldn't have ever noticed this if I was using colored tubing!

Have you tried tilting the case back and forth 45 degrees and giving it a bit of a shake?

what pump would you get that would be better than a 355? i dont think it has anything to do with the pump.

MCP655? anyways OP I am kind of with the others in thinking there is a very small air leak somewhere. Though I agree it is a strange theory, espically since it only shows after 20 min. I would tilt the case back and forth and side to side to see if thee is air trapted that needs to be dislogged. Super Nice rig btw!

This is actually a good point. I guess you could try changing the in/out holes in the GPU blocks to try to get rid of that low pressure. It is probable that it is caused by some turbulence in those GPU blocks.

How long have you left the cap of the res?

I had to leave mine off for over 24hours to get all air out of my system, I don't know how else the air will leave.

Lucky here I guess five minutes or less no air bubbles. (With fill cap off) Just
make sure you keep plenty of coolant in while doing so.

Even all the little bubbles? all my major bubbles went away in just a few short minutes, but the major bubbles took a lot of time.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I'll leave the reservoir cap off and run the computer at least 24 hours to see if it improves.

they will probably go away with time, except if your pump is somehow causing such turbulences in your res that it sucks air bubbles in, in which case the bubbles will never go away
