Default Gurgling noise in loop?

I've just completed a CPU loop. I noticed loud gurgling coming for the radiator(MCR220). I've shaken the thing a few times but the problem persists.

did you let it bleed? It sounds like it would be air bubbles in your loop. It will dissipate in roughly a day.

Air in the lines maybe? I used to get a girgle or two when I move my PC around, how I get rid of it is ( I am a res) tilt my pc so that the air moves up into my res then I open the res to let the air out and add some more distilled water until it is full.

it's means the air is not yet purge or you have air getting in the loop, more detail, best a pic will help.

I tightened the fittings again. gave the radiator a good shake(5 minutes long I'd say). set the loop up agian, filled the res to the top. I turned on the system and still get gurgling.

I purchased the loop used for a good price...maybe theres something wrong with the rad.
