Ahh... i c.... that's true... the tubes used to have air bubbles... now it's solid... so... does the res needs to be filled above the "slope" thingy? wouldn;t air bubbles trapped in the corner there? or do i have to tilt it at an angle?

After day or two it will all gone. I just have no patience at all, so I "help" with tilting computer randomly and tapping on radiator, slowing down and accelerating pump, squishing tube.... That is just my voodoo-magic ritual, not a standard procedure by any means.

I just use tube cutter there about 5 bucks from any hardware store. http://www.traderscity.com/board/use...e-cutter-1.jpg
when you water cool as much as i do these things save so much time.
better pic always straight cuts too never had a bad cut at all. 3 water cooled systems this month on top of my two.

Try $40 garden players, not $10 ... big difference.
