Depends a lot on room temp. My basement is quite warm as well and I lose water. No leaks anywhere that I can see but water disappears somehow.

Yup, same as me. Where my PC is, it is usally 22-28 depending on outside temps. I definitely loose more coolant in the summer months. I also have a small EK res so you do need to fill it more often. I usually top it up every month or 2.

I lost about an inch of coolant in my rig in aprox 6 months from my EK 50mm reservoir. I positive I don't have any leaks and everything is pretty tight.

My System Specs


It could be that you had a pocket of air somewhere in the system (e.g. rad) and it worked itself into the res.
