No idea. I never did a loop like that. But like Mr. Wilson wrote, the difference may just be very little. Unless you will eventually add more blocks to the loop.

The micro bubbles are going to affect temperatures, but as long as you've done a lengthy leak test and watch your temps you should be OK.

I find turning the pump on for a minute or so, turning it off and letting it settle for a minute or so, then turning it back on for a minute helps settle the bubbles. (repeat as necessary) :) .

Default making progress

I just waited for a few hours for the froth to go with intermittent ons and offs..that pump is pretty powerful and whipped the water up into a foam pretty quick.

Ive worked a lot with experimental aquaria/tanks but that caught me right off guard.

I just ran mine with the micro-bubbles, my temps went down by all of 2 degrees by the time they settled, so long as your temps are acceptable you won't have any trouble running them out of the system.

I've been watching this thread with much interest, I've been seriously thinking about a "simple" loop myself. But here's a question which has been bugging me:

How do you get power to your rad fans? Daisy chain them together and feed a molex connector outside your case?

Very slick mod Mr. Wilson. I like that, simple and tidy. I'm still toying with the idea of pulling my hdd cages from my 900 and doing an internal rad mount.

Sorry to hijack the thread Dashock. Nice work, BTW.

Edit: did a little searching, here's a $6 fix for the un-handy. 4 power connectors, 2 each of molex and 3 pin.

Did you leave enough room under the tubes for your Videocard? It is always good to use more tubing, and have the room for upgrades!
