Anyone have the tubing size for those of us who want to replace it?

Would it be worth it to replace the H150i for the Phoenix and maybe add a second radiator module, if possible?

Nvm, the 360mm is apparently EOL...

Hey Guys! I still consider myself a noob when it comes to water cooling, even though I have been running AIOs for years now, I switched to the Phoenix Kit Shortly after it released and now run it on my 2700x Build. As many other have noted on this thread from time to time I heard air going through the pump. I have already topped it off, but unfortunately there is still air stuck in the loop, and you hear it move through the pump maybe once every few hours or so. You only hear the noise for a second or 2, but I would still prefer to burp the air out of the system.

The Way My Phoenix is mounted, I took my old school ass case that had no room for the 360MLC on the inside, Measured and Cut 2 Holes on the top of my Steel Case for both the Tubes to go into, and Mounted my Rad on Top of the case, Tube Side Down. So The Port I used to top it off is conveniently placed right there on the top of the RAD, and I noticed on the opposite side of the Rad, there is another Port. I am thinking it may be possible to burp the system from that port. Unfortunately this is where my inexperience with Custom Water Cooling Loops comes into play.

1) Is my assumption even correct that I could completely take off the "Fill" port I mentioned, and then maybe just give like a half of rotation turn to the port on the Rear of the Rad to Burp the system?

2) With Just like a half of Rotation turn on the Rear, would that be enough to have the fluid start leaking, making this a dumb lesson to learn?

This is a HUGE System, and not the easiest to pick up and move around to try to get the air out, and would be a pain in the AS* to completely remove. However as I will be dropping in a new Ryzen 3rd Gen Chip in the next few months when they launch I could just do it then if I have to remove the rad to properly burp the system, but I am concerned the air moving through the pump every so often will eventually hurt it.

Also, I was thinking about grabbing a DDC Pump and replacing the SDC Pump, it appears I could just drop it in, has anyone tried that? Would their be a noticeable difference in Performance with a DDC Pump, or is not Worth it when just cooling the CPU? (My 1080ti Is on a Separate loop)

Thank You guys for your Help, sorry for so Many Questions!

P.S. I am providing pictures to show where the Ports are, and the build in General. I just Thoroughly Cleaned and Dusted this Case just over a Month ago, but Live in Las Vegas, and Unfortunately the Dust Builds up FAST. I didn't realize until viewing the Pictures just now, how damn DUSTY this thing got ALREADY! I don't feel like retaking the Pics, so I am sorry, I know this is Sacrilege, I will take care of it in the morning, I promise! LOL!

Thank You For Your Help!

10/16 mmm - it´s detailed in the instructions

I bought the tubing below together with some Quick-Disconnects to expand my loop with a non-MLC water block for my GPU and an independent EK-DDC pump+reservoir, as I find the EK-SPC Pump in the radiator module to be a bit too weak for larger loops. Specially since the Phoenix tubing is way too long.

So is the MLC Phoenix still being made or has it been discontinued? I noticed all of the Phoenix stuff is in EK's clearance section on the website...

Probably phased out due to cost in favor of the EK Classic series kit.

Well that's just damn annoying. I understand getting rid of the Predator because it was having leaking issues but the Phoenix seemed like it was fine. Was also a much better option than a "proper" loop so those who couldn't be bothered with one. Oh well.

I can't get the 360 here anymore either but I really like the look and supposed performance of this kit. Would a EK Phoenix 280 module which I can still get be enough to beat a H110i GTX?

I plan to run it push pull with 4 140mm Cooler Master MF140's which are basically case fans and have very little static pressure. They are more for looks lol. Work great on the H110i GTX but I need a bit better cooling to sustain a 5Ghz+ clock on my 9900K.

I really don't see any other option for easy water-cooling as the Alphacool LT kits have a terrible pump according to reviews, Swiftech H360X3's are unavailable as well and the EK Phoenix is the only kit sort-of available still.

Cars:
-Crashed: (not my fault ) '94 Nissan 100NX GA16DE (a.k.a. NX1600). Renault Laguna Phase I facelift '99 1.6 K4M. (Broke a strut and smacked a tree).
-Sold: '00 Nissan Primera P11-144 QG18DE, '97 Honda Prelude F20A4.
-Current: '03 Suzuki Ignis Sport 1.5 M15A & '03 Peugeot 206CC 2.0 RFN fully riced.
