I tightened the screws quite tight. There is slight flex in the claws. Is that normal?

Like I'd be really nervous to bring this to a LAN because I feel that the reservoir would just pop off during transport.

the flex is to allow anti vibration.nothing to fret about.though you may have rounded off the screws thread,do the screws bite or just keep turning?

The screws are definitely tight. They aren't stripped or anything. The top bracket is weaker than the bottom. The bottom has a good hold but that's not the one I'm worried about.

If the top falls, it all falls

There have been issues with the acrylic holders in the past- you might consider picking up a set of iandh holders, they use spring-loaded metal arms. You could also try sneaking a ziptie around the res somewhere to tie it more snugly to the case/mobo tray.. I've never dealt with a tube res in person, sorry I can't be of more help

FYI, since I've been playing with pump noise, I have too noticed that restriction by itself can create noise. Pressure drop is converted into two forms of engergy, heat and noise. My testing flow meter valve happens to be fairly annoying with that, even when completely bled of air it will make a distinct noise when closed down quite a bit.

Anyhow, blocks can and do make noise...not as much as the pump motor itself, but some.

Here's the real expert!

I noticed the same thing with my Supreme HF, but the noise has quieted to inaudible now that the loop is bled. Same thing used to happen with my GTZ that used a basic jet-impingement style.

@Martin, great job with the Koolance res review, I just saw that this afternoon; I've been debating about picking one up. If you need to get rid of your review sample..

THIS IS INCREDIBLY STUPID. WOW.

Check out the video of my stupid reservoir blowing up. The water is also quite warm, not sure if it should be since everything is off but it could be the pump constantly running.

Wait till you here the "click" (me turning off the PSU) and then you can see. It's SO STUPID. WHY IS IT DOING THIS? WOW.


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

1) Turn your room lights on. If you can afford dual pumps + dual res top you can afford to turn on a 100w incandescent bulb in the same room as the computer.

2) It's doing that because you have air in your lines. You're going to have to either tilt your case so that the res is oriented at the highest part in the loop, or you're going to have to temporarily move either the rads lower, or move the res+pump higher.

If you're not willing to do any of that, then you're S.O.L..

Well the res can't be higher than the radiators. It's just not physically possible. There's no room and I can't attach a longer tube to it because when I put it back down it won't fit.

The only thing I can try to do is tilt the case back and forth and let it run and run and run.

Is the pump supposed to be really hot to the touch? I assume it is.

Big issue: Is the water supposed to go in the tube in the reservoir while the pump is running? At some points, the water in the tube in the reservoir is higher than the water in the reservoir.

My friend said I should just take the top off the reservoir and let it run overnight...will this help AT ALL?

Shouldn't be a problem, and shaking 'shouldn't' be necessary

not terribly warm, no

I don't see how that's possible if the pumps are getting water...

It shouldn't be necessary
Can you post any pics or further description of loop order/components/anything at all? Any information would be helpful at this point, especially pics they don't have to be action shots, just something to help us zero in on issues. I'll wait if you want to post them now.
