Now, what I would 2nd is a possible fill plug being installed on like the radiator or something like that, but that would only be for a long time use, warrantee void if open thing. This would allow people to check to make sure it is full. Either that, or a small reservoir to make them servicable. Kindda like something that could be mounted either above  it or maybe in a 5.25" drive bay... simly to make sure there aren't any leaks, or levels dropping to low.

yeah but i honestly wouldnt complain if theres a little bit of maintenance like a built-in reservoir on the radiator that catches all the bubbles.

i hope all the next gen self-contained water cooling systems will have zero air inside...

E-mail them and tell them what you think! You never know, perhaps the next generation comes like that biggrin.gif

Thats actually not a bad idea. Alot of redesigned things come from customer feedback of the original Item. Some companies even pay you if they use your ideabiggrin.gif

Yes, I know. I wasn't only joking,hehe! They have also sayed they want custumor feedback, so it is likely that they will do what you sugest IF it is an upgrad and it doesnt cost to mutch. Money talks:D

the types of upgrades that will make this perfect will cost quite a bit of money.
durable silicone doesnt come cheap tongue.gif

i got a loop in one of my computers and i know how much it contracts. had too open up my fill port once in a while so the tubes dont collapse on itself.

maybe they can add a mini Accordion design on their tubes. tongue.gif

but a built in reservoir on their radiator seems like the best option in reducing their RMA due to large amounts of air bubbles trapped in there.

Yeah, they have got tons of RMA's due to the pump getting air locked, I know of alot of people that turn it on, hear how loud the pump is, then send it right back. They none realised, hey, takes time for it to get quiet.

I have been thinking about getting a 920 for my Raven RV02 to replace my Cooler Master Hyper 212. I sit at 55C full load on folding. Is the 920 going to give me better temps then that or will it be a downgrade performance wise?

they should have giving a warning in the guide about that.

but i ran mine for over 24hrs and there is zero change to the ticking it made. my H60 made zero noise (besides the props whirling) took a risk and tried antec but got disappointing.. mad.gif

24 hours should be enough for the pump to get working prop. But did you turn on the pump and shake it? All i needed to do was hitt it whit my finger a couple of times and it went silent. Or at least i consider it silent,hehe. It is almost impossible to hear the pump due to the other fan.

i did everything. shook it as hard as i can many times (the pump and the radiator like they said) even turned it in every possible angle.

i have a custom loop and i know that in time all the bubbles will purge into the reservoir but this one didnt.
it might have been a defective impeller because of the noise it made.

yeah i even tried "hitting" it just enough to give it a jolt but nothing helped. after 24hrs of leaving it on i gave up and returned it to amazon.
but i gave them another chance by asking for a replacement not my money back.
