My System Specs

Default Water not moving

Well I kind of messed up my watercooling setup... pump->reservoir->CPU->rad->pump and my problem is that when I try and fill the system, all the coolant stays in the reservoir. Is there anything I can do except changing the location of things?

I'm sure you probably have it right, but I did this the first time: I reversed the "IN" and "OUT" hoses on the reservoir, and the water wouldn't move through.

I took out my reservoir and now im using a T-line. Does anyone know how to easily get the danger den tubing plug 1/2" into Swiftech 7/16" tubing? im having trouble And should I get my rad RMAed? Some of the heatsink fins are twisted. Its only one fin in a little spot though.

To get smaller tubing to fit onto a larger fitting, dip the tubing into a a cup of boiling water.

As far as slightly bent fins go.... I had a couple slightly bent on my 360 and didn't worry about it.
