Well my only real problems are that the water surges through the reservoir top upon shut off which I heard will correct itself when all the air is removed and pressure is gone.

The CPU block making noise doesn't really bother me. I just want to make sure that it's not a problem with the block when I turn the computer on. Somebody else said this was just the thing inside causing air and it will fix itself once it's done bleeding.

The radiators are making HUGE noise. I keep hearing what sounds like waves of water going back and forth in both of them. They ARE above the reservoir so it could be air but man I just wanna plug this baby in and get it going.

How long have your ran the loop? Sounds like you need to keep running it to get all the air out and top off the reservoir as needed until it stops dropping. Is the reservoir air tight? If not, the coolant in the loop above the reservoir will drain back down and fill the reservoir back up. Also, what plate are you using in the EK CPU block?

I have been running it for maybe 2 hours now? I will keep running it until I stop hearing this sloshing water in the radiator or whatnot.

When I first started bleeding it wasn't air tight because I took the top off. It was bugging me when I had to shut it off and the water would come shooting out the top.

I am not using the one that came stock, which according to the manual was the || one. I am using the :||: one. It's got 2 little on the outside and 2 big on the inside.

I am going to need to pick up an anti-cyclone. It's annoying to look at.

I can still hear water going back and forth throughout the radiator. It's so ANNOYING! It's like a rainy day outside and the rain is hitting the window.

sloshing water is normal/ I have a rad vertical and it makes a trinkling water sound haha, but that stopped so i guess the air is out

Yeah, all I'm concerned with now is why it shoots up and out of the reservoir when I shut it off. Once I figure that out, I'm turning it on!

Anyone know why?

When filling the loop up currently

Do you have the top of the reservoir completely off to add water and pump exiting loop-water to a outside container?

If so, prop the receiver container into a position where the existing loop-water hose is discharging below the liquid level. The outside-container liquid level should not be above highest elevation of the reservoir.

This should help stop the reverse siphon or filling up of reservoir.

Good luck, thing still looks beautiful


WAITTTT, make sure the liquid level in the receiver container is not above the highest elevation of the reservoir

Thanks Draygo

I am not using an outside container, sorry.

Basically I'm running it how I would if the computer was on (without the computer on, ofc). I am finished filling the reservoir because the level no longer falls. If it does happen to fall more, I have water here to add in case. Right now, I'd say it's a little under half full WHILE it's running. When I shut it off, it still shoots up through the middle hole in the top. I don't know how to fix and have a normal computer. If I take the lid off, I have no problems with it shooting up.

At this point it's been bleeding for about 3 hours. I'm considering just taking the top of the reservoir off and turning on my computer so I don't have to deal with it.

It's just really annoying and I don't wanna fry my computer?

OK, after looking at your setup (sort hard since its mainly black, LOL), I think your return hose from the GPU to reservoir should have been made into a high sitting loop. Instead of going straight from the GPU low into the reservoir, the tubing needs to route back up high into the case and then loop down and into the reservoir. This will keep more coolant in the loop and prevent it from draining out when the pumps are off.

I just honestly don't know what to do. All these components and I can't use them because one stupid reservoir.


Just as an FYI, it's not even a cyclone inside. It's just water being moved around.

I definitely give this a shot, if you can reroute the existing hose or get a longer piece of tubing just to route last gpu to top of reservoir inlet.

maybe just try to run the loop fill up almost to the top with all of the inlet/outlets on the reservoir pluged? so more air can not come into the system to equalize the pressure??
I cant really see in the video but it looks like bubbling or liquid just sloshing around?
If bubbling what hose is it coming from?
