Default water in the reservoir (part 2)

i switched dual mcp ek top to single ek top with new ek resx 150 tube...

so i watched the res carefully... i still cant figure where the water is going... two week ago, 1/2" of the water disappeared, i checked every parts for water leaking after swapped the parts...

4 days ago, i poured more water into the reservoir and, now i have no idea where 1/4" water is going... i still dont see mirco-bubbles in the reservoir anymore...


so any clues? is there any air in the radiators? (both is vertical and fittings are bottom)


my watercooling configuration is rad1 > pump/res > rad2 > cpu > gpu1 > gpu2

Either your loop is still bleeding or another one of those reservoir is leaking.

in pic i no see the rez, best way to bleed is have rads face lay down on table use books to support case if rads aren't surcured good

than remove rez/s/ so that is @ highest point of loop an level (above case) use towels to cover case and wrap towel around rez so when filling not to spill

only have pump running and NO POWER TO MB or hardware, can use a spare PSU to power pump only by jumping pin on atx connector

Honestly you will more than likely not see the leak until it's too late. The rubber o-ring failed on several of my units. Just make sure your loop is bleed properly, and if the water continues to drop it's more than likely the reservoir.

why can't show real good pic of the rez in CURRENT set-up

or state is swiftcheeze rez with D5 pump or ek rez with ddc355

are the rads serial or parrelle circuit?

id go this set-up below for rez location (D5) will give a better chance keeping air out of loop

if using ek rez remove from pump top, place higher than rads
