I am going to have my friend add water to the reservoir while it's running to see if that stops the sloshing and whatnot.
I meant just to temporarily unbolt the pump while you have it sideways so you can fill the res while it's on its side, I didn't mean to permanently rearrange your gear.

That and or get one of these:
I have one of these garbage funnels. It leaks like a sieve.

Funnels are pretty straight-forward. It should only have 2 holes; a big one in top, small one at the end.

Other holes are bad in the world of funneling.

Somewhat solved one of my problems.

I disabled one pump as someone said and the sloshing has gone away. This one pump is still causing slight sloshing but not nearly as bad. It's like a cyclone almost. Is this normal?

The radiators are above the reservoir and I can hear water going back and forth through them while the pump runs and when I tilt it so I will let it run for a couple hours and hopefully that will solve it, right?

Thanks for all your help.

I also removed Katy Perry from the tubes and that definitely cleared up part of it, lol.

To get rid of the cyclone just stick an EK anti cyclone or some sort of credit card sized bit of plastic.

Keep her around...she might be useful later this evening.

And yes, you'll want to keep running and adding water for a while. Then, give it time to shut down and air to collect. Don't forget to tilt/tip/rock your case to move air.

Wait the water is leaking out of the pump like a geyser? Change/tighten the fitting so that it doesn't do that.

Also a video would be VERY helpful.

No, it's coming out the top while he fills it. Just a case of big pump, small res.

Here's a video of what it's like now.

This is without the second pump running.

Does it look normal?

Once there is a steady flow of water, shut it all down, put the top to the res back on, and let it run till there are no more bubbles in the loop.

You are NOT going to be able to prime that loop without some type of something covering the top while you do it, hence why I suggest using your hand. The water will go everywhere if you don't have something covering it.

A taller res will fix this problem for you. That and you can fill it up more and let it suck it down so instead of having to do that 4-5 times or so you would do it maybe twice and your loop would be filled.

Turning things on their side will help with the air bleeding, but with those two pumps, it shouldn't be more than 30 minutes of running before the air works itself out without any coercion.
This is just plain wrong. Sorry, but a taller res is by NO means necessary, in fact I run my dual-D5's off of a 6" T-line and do just fine.

As for the pumps, turning them isn't really necessary, nor is shaking the case, personally I don't feel like shaking around my 80lb rig with all the hardware inside, so I let the pumps do the work. The bubbles will eventually all be removed. (It will take a week+ to remove the final traces of air from a loop, so it's completely normal to have to add water during that period)

Adding the water while running is a good idea, and I would suggest running on a single pump until the loop is mostly full, just to lower the pressure a bit.

If you have a 2nd port on your res's top, I would just add another line coming off to a funnel so that you can fill with the top on.

Regardless, the water should continue to be added to the res while the pumps are running, and leave them running to avoid the back surge. The noise is cavitation caused by the pumps chopping up and forming bubbles, which will go away as the air gets bled out of the loop.

Edit: The movement in the video is just from the pumps' power, the motion will smooth out as the air is removed, however you may find that you get a cyclonic action in the res which would require the anti-cyclone inserts available for most tube res' these days.

OT, but how do you have an M8 already!

Try to put a sponge into it, and CLOSE the res.
