Default Best way to add water to a loop

i've build my loop and now and then i ear some bubbles passing throw the pump... i would need to add a little water ..

my system is PA120.3 + MCP655 + d-tek fuzion v2 on cpu and V2 on gpu + Filport.

try #1
shoudl i had water turn the computer on and then tight the filport screw .. if i do when i turn the computer OFF and untight that screw tou can hear a PSsssfffttt from the over pressure that is in the tubing.

try #2
if i add water then tight the filport and then turn the computer on. after the computer is turn on and i untight the filport i can hear the pppssssfft but from the negative presure inside my loop.

the question is should i run my loop in negative pressure or positive pressure???

and usualy those who are running filport loop what you do ti had water?? #1 or #2??

I'm assuming your using a t-line? You don't say anything about a res.

How much water do you have in your t-line after you fill it up? Because you don't need your t-line full.

The air pressure in the loop doesn't matter. If you still have air bubbles in the loop, you need them to reach the T-line. Make sure the T-line is partly full, then just run the computer until all the air is gone from the main loop. It could take a long time, especially if you have a high flow rate. If you want, you can pinch the tubing near the T-line to slow the water down, and make it easier for the bubbles to go into the T-line.

yes i have a t-line

currently the t-line was almost empty and i have filled it up, to let 4 inch of air at the top of it.

since the air presure doesn't matter possitive of negative it mean nuting performance wise? All air bubble are now of of the loop, reason why i need to add water ... so i dont care about the air pressure thats kewl ....

now how many water to i need top leave int o the t-line?

couple inch?? half of it?

only has to be like 2-3" above into the t-line from the main line.

Syringe? That's high tech.

I use a turkey baster with the bulb taken off for a funnel. Paid a whole dollar for it at the dollar store. Ghetto, but don't laugh until you've tried it. And don't use a used one.
