If you have a pump in it, fill it until you have covered by 1 to 2 cm above the pump inlet.

If you don't have a pump in it, simply fill it until you are above the tank inlet/outlet. Again 1 to 2 cm above should be enough.

Feel free to fill it as you wish, but depending where it is located in your loop, don't put to much coolant in it. The more coolant you put in, the more pressure it gonna do to lower WC component.

I hope it help ^^

The most important thing is that the outlet is completely underwater, to ensure that only water goes back into the loop. If the inlet is also underwater, this makes it harder to air to mix with the water coming in, and is also a good thing. But don't fill the reservoir to the very top, since the level will rise and fall depending on whether the pump is running, and the temperature of the system.
