I just built my new loop, loop consides of:

XPXC Dual Res with Laing DDC Pump
HWL GTX240
Swiftech Apogee XT
EK Multi Option Res
GTX470
GTX470 (connected via an EK SLI Bridge)
HWL GTX360

I have a 2nd res as i needed a way to fill the loop, (cant use the dual bay res filling port)

Problem i have is I have EXTREMLY low flow rate,

That air bubble between the CPU and the Cylinder Res is just sitting thier, I also cant feel much flow in the pipes (from touch).

I have no idea what is wrong here,

Anyone ?

Resevoires dont break loops, they are a closed system, as long as the inlet the outlet are both under water

Well there's a massive airlock in the tube res if the inlet and outlet are both at the top. What's the flow direction?

The top of that cylinder res has 2 verticel pipes going down, way below the water level,

I didnt plan on 2 res, just couldnt use the bay res fill port as it cant be pulled out due to a pipe connecting that directly to the 240.

Needed someone of getting water into the system. Only issue was getting water to the bay res.
