Reservoir Hole

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Should I plug up the top hole in my reservoir? Currently it's being used for nothing except letting air out. It's been about a week since my computer has been fully functional.

Yeah, my mom said water could evaporate and of course me being me thinks that's bad for my case. I figured it would be good to let the air out =/

Anyone?

Rofl you actually made me giggle out loud. My girlfriend asked why...? Hahahahah oh my.

That's the only reason though? For monsters and such in case it falls?

well the res is designed so i can be open to help bleed air out but its recommended you close it jsut in case. it shouldnt affect your flow or anyhting but if you truely put your computer underwater, well you will be in trouble lol

The reservoir cap should only be left off when filling the loop, even when you are bleeding it can be on. Having it on prevents dust from getting into your water, and prevents the water in the loop from evaporating out. It also prevents against spills if the computer is bumped.

There seems to be no benefit from leaving the res open unless you are in the process of pouring water into it.
