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?
Taking it apart would be a last resort for me. I mean obviously something is wrong so I might have to but right now I want to see what I can do.

I can try plugging the top. That won't ruin anything? I could also try taking the lid off...would that do anything?

Yes, the entire thing is bubbling and sloshing around. I have no idea why. The reservoir runs DOWN into the pump which pumps UP to the radiator at the top of the case which runs over to the other radiator, down to CPU, to GPU, and back over to reservoir. No clue what's going wrong.

This is just dumb man. I'm so lost.

Looking at the other thread, when the two DDC pumps are running, there is so much turbulence from flow rate, its getting air back into the system. It runs a lot better with a single pump right now, but I suggest routing the lower hose from the bottom GPU back up to apply some back pressure to the system and keep the coolant from running down though the hoses on the way back to the reservoir. DDC pumps like a constant feed of water in a closed loop IMO. Any how air is injected into them, it will mix it into the coolant as micro bubbles all day long and aerate your coolant mixture. Now, when you shut the pumps off, my understanding is that the line leaving the pumps is going straight up to the radiator. This column of water is going to flow straight back into the pumps and back into the reservoir. That I believe is your overflow issue when turning off the system. If you could raise the pumps and reservoir some, it would help to stop this I believe. An air & water tight reservoir would be the solution to your current issue though IMO.

Filling up the reservoir while running one pump at first is where I would start. Once its stable. Completely seal the reservoir. No venting in the top. Seal that off if you can and then run the system to make sure its OK. Top off the reservoir only when running and then you think all the air is out, re-enable the second pump and see how it runs thens. In my XSPC WC system with DDC pump. I can only completely top off when the system is running. If I pull off the fill cap when its off, the coolant will drain back down and running out of the top, since it sits lower than the radiator.

What you can do is install a barb at the top of the reservoir lid with a hose going to the top as a fill port. You can use this to fill the system while its off. Just need to top off when its running.

Thanks for the help. I don't know what I'm going to do. I don't want to install a fill tube because that's the reason I got the reservoir. Thanks for the help though veedub. I'm going to be posting in my thread about this now here:

http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...ploding-5.html

Please help me this is SO STUPID

I would just fill it and run it with a sealed reservoir top then. No need for fill port. Just seal the reservoir and see how it runs when its filled up.

I cant see the video at work, but one thing I can tell you is to change over the tube to the inlet port of the res. The side tube seems to be where the water comes back to the res from the loop, so thats where the tube should go. You have way to much pressure for the loop that you are using and its bound to shoot water up. With a single pump workign with two block and two rads I get water shooting out of the res, so thats normal. What I would suggest is use a tube with a barb and connect it to the top of the res, using a funnel at the other end to fill in the water and prime the pumps...also try and use only one pump for priming. But seriously, two pumps is way too much power for your loop and I would think if you have a single top, try one pump and then figure out if you really need two.

Hi Mav,

Thanks for trying to help. I'm trying to move my thread here to avoid complaints:

http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...ploding-5.html

Right now I am only using 1 pump. I've been using 1 pump for the past 4 hours or so. I don't really have room above my reservoir. This really sucks man.

Not sure how I missed this build but it's awesome! I keep telling my gf and others that I'm not going to sink anymore money into the computer for awhile and then something like this comes along... Not sure how I feel about the cube form, but the build quality makes it seem really enticing... Plus all the room for my WC goodies Glad we could get you running some water finally!
