MCP35x EXPLODING! - Page 6

post #51 of 64
Thread Starter 
Okay here are a bunch of pictures to try and help.

As you can see, it's not possible for me to mount anything above the reservoir as the radiator is right above it.



That thing in the middle of the reservoir fills with water too. That is where it splurges out of when I shut the pump off.



Here you can see the GPU coming up into the reservoir from the other side of the case. The reservoir goes down into the pump and you can see the pump outlet tube (the big long one) coming up to the radiator.



This is the other side. The top loop is the radiator coming over to the other radiator. Then you can see the radiator goes into the CPU and down into the GPU.



This is the GPU outlet going back to the other side of the case where it goes back into the reservoir as shown in earlier pictures.



Pump on:





There IS water inside that tube in the reservoir. When the pump is turned on, that fills up with water. I can't get a good picture of it but trust me, it's got water in it as high as the water in the reservoir.



Better view of the loop. You can clearly see the reservoir come down into the pump and the pump up to the radiator.



Other side:



Sorry for the reflection here:



1) I don't know why water is filling up that tube attached to the lid on the reservoir. It isn't upside down.

2) I don't know why the water surges out when I shut the pump off. Could I plug this hole up and then not have to deal with it or will this cause too much pressure?

3) I really can't move anything around. I just don't have the space. I can try changing tubing patterns but that's pretty much it...and I really don't want to. I shouldn't even have to. This just really sucks

I don't think you should have a tube in the top lid. If anything, it should be in the return line port coming from the bottom. You have to have some sort of separation in the reservoir from inlet and outlet ports to bleed air from the coolant mixture. Plus with the tube taken off the lid, it shouldn't come splashing out when the water rises back up.

That tube is for the return line, it allows water returning to be dumped into the center of the 'cyclone' and prevent the pump drawing air. If that's not your return line then you can unscrew the little tube.

that tube isnt doing anything unless you use the tube going up from the bottom as well. you should take it off and use the anti-cyclone with the EK logo or use both. as you have it right now, all it will do is make your pump suck up more bubbles, making it hard to bleed out the air. but that is besides the point.

make sure there are absolutely no kinks

make sure each piece (blocks and connectors) are flowing freely

make sure you dont have it set up so that there is any back pressure... not sure how to explain that. just make sure the water can make it back to the res/pump.

if you need an extra tube so that you can use it for the intake, let me know. i have two extras. you want to have a tube for the intake and for the outlet, so that there isnt a straight line from the intake to the outlet. (shoot me a pm if you need one.)

good luck figuring this out.

edit: i noticed that the tube might just be for filling purposes, but what i said stands: the tube should be for your return line. you may want to make the return line go in the top and through the tube and add a tube for the outtake. or you can move the tube to the return line, whichever hole that is.

also, the EK res is kind of tricky. sometimes the return line hole gets covered up. remove everything and make sure you can see into the res through both the holes. i think this may be your problem

i would post pictures to explain, but mine is full of water =)

although i noticed this when i was installing it. the base can rotate, and it is easy to mis-align it so that the water cant flow through it. check!

I suspect that the problem is with the res and getting an airlock with the tubes. Poor circulation would be causing the pump heating and the back pressure issues...

Also, plugging that top hole is fine, you won't over-pressure the loop or pump.

Honest to God, you guys are my two favorite humans in the ENTIRE WORLD right now.

@ezveedub: I absolutely appreciate you following me from my build log to here and continuously helping me. If I could see you in person, I would give you a GIANT HUG. And some Valentines things that say "Be mine".

@Saltwater: You are awesome. Thanks so much for sticking with me and asking for pictures. Without that, this may not have been solved. You would also get a GIANT HUG and some Valentines things that say "I love you".

@Devvz: You get nothing, runt.

Thanks so much everyone else for helping me through this.

All I did was unplug the little tube. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHA. My return line isn't in a position where I can put the tube so I just removed it altogether.

My pump runs down as an outlet. The return line is on the side so I can't put it in.

Does anyone have any final words in case I'm still doing something wrong?

As long as it's working, I'm all set Glad we could get you running! I'll sit around for a few minutes in case, but it sounds like you've got a handle on things. The side return and bottom outlet should be a perfect setup *knock on wood* Enjoy watercooling, it's always a new adventure

Edit: Just remember in the future to put as many pics as you can, it's easier to sort through the useless info that someone posts to find the solution than to guess at solutions. Most of us have been through similar things before though, so we can guess pretty well

Yeah, I would remove the reservoir tube going down, that's only if you had the return line coming in from the top. Now it's just causing problems because you can't fill up the reservoir to prime the system properly.

I would also consider installing a barb on the top with a temporary tube where you can fill from. I usually hook a funnel to these tubes, that way you never starve the pump.

Not having the reservoir full is allowing air to suck back down into the pumps which puts them into air lock.

It's siphoning back up your reservoir tube, because you haven't pumped enough water into the radiator to where it's coming back down to the reservoir. Until you do this you are fighting static pressure of the water. So when you turn off the pump, it comes back down and pushes out the reservoir. If you have a tube and funnel connected it should avoid that problem or if you can simply get enough into the loop, it'll balance out.

Once a loop is full, static pressure goes away, because the pressure of water going up one side is removed by the water on the opposite side of the loop.

Maybe I'm just old-fashioned, but I really do like my T-line I have a threaded stop fitting and then a long tube with a funnel on one end and a threaded barb on the other... Thread them together to fill and then take it apart and I have a neatly hidden T to run with once it's bled.
