This is a new WC kit I assume. The bubbles will go away with time.. 2-4 days.

Yup, sounds like bleeding is needed/happening.

it is.. and I know the small bubbles in the tubes will go away.. but this seems like the pump is so strong that its pulling the little air at the top of the res down, and chopping it up into smaller bubbles. Im going to be adding a fill port and line to the top of the res to try to "make" the res bigger. Hopefully that will help

Rock the case from left to right and tilt it front to back. Also tapping in the rad while tilting it will loosen the bubbles trapped in the rad. You can also squeeze the lines to make it serge and move the bubbles. Make sure you leave the res cap off and check on it to add some water if you need it.

Cap the res with the pump running...might be the pump cavitating.

Otherwise bleed it...tilt it...tap it...rock it back to forth.
I had bubbles galore in my loop when I first set it up...went away after 3 days.

I think you are having a vortex issue where, as you stated, the air is being sucked into the system from the res. Why not keep the pump turned down. My swiftech micro res will do the same thing if I have my 655 pump at full speed. I found my temps were better with the pump turned down anyway, so no worries for me.

True when i turn it down, my two 480GTX sit at 35C but later, I plan on adding my i7 and power into the loop, so I might need the extra power, will need to remove the bubbles for sure
