I have this pump and a http://www.petrastechshop.com/lad5smcin12v.html
Laing D5 Basic/Swiftech MCP655-B Inline 12V DC Pump

This is my Reservoir http://www.petrastechshop.com/swmcmirere.html

Now I have a 320 Radiator for just a CPU loop but If I turn the speed up to 5 on my pump my reservoir bubbles up pretty bad. Even set on 3 I'm getting some bubbles but I don't think there getting back into the loop. What should I have the speed set at for this loop. Thanks.

once ur down bleeding, fill the res all the way up, that will stop bubbles from forming. as for speed of the pump, just do some temp testing at the different settings and pick the one you like. i know some people claim they get the same temps whether the pump is on 3,4, or 5.

Like he was saying you shouldn't have any bubbles once your loop is bleed. If you can shake you rad a little to get air out or slap the side of it a little that will speed it up some, tilting your case around to get the air out of the blocks will help also..

I put mine on #2 to fill and bleed and run it on #5.

You must of linked the wrong pump because the "B" model doesn't have a rheo, it runs constantly at what would be the #4 setting on the vario pump.

It really shouldn't matter what speed you bleed at but slower will allow the bubbles marginally more time to escape - The MCRes is great in that you can just open the cap and let it run. It will usually be almost completely bled 3 or 4 hours of continuous running.

If it is sucking the bubbles back in, then just turn down the speed as your suction is overpowering the design of the reservoir.
