Ok ive just filled my first loop with distilled water.

But im not sure if all the air has been purged, now this would be easy if i had clear tubing but i have pitch black tubing, so any ideas on when my pc is ready to turn on (of course leaving a day for a leak test).

Do you have a clear fillport or reservoir?

Gently rock the case from side to side and front to back to help it.

When you stop seeing air bubbles in your res/fillport you know the air is gone and after your leak test most of the air if not all should be gone.

If you don't have clear tubing can be hard to tell. Here are some ways that I can distinguish if air bubbles are still inside:
1. pump runs louder with air bubbles inside, after a while if you noticed the noise level decrease from the pump then you know air bubbles are at minimal level.
2. look at the reservoir water level if the water maintain the same level after a few hours pretty much most if not all the air bubbles are bleed out.
