Well I guess I'll be the guinea pig and just bite the bullet on one.

The design looks similar to the one for the DDC pumps.

It's going to be a PITA to bleed, since the barrel running to the pump inlet will channel the bubbles directly through.

You will need to make an aluminum "spoon" thing to divert the bubbles to speed up the bleeding. Stick it through the top fill-port and manouver it to between the pump inlet and the end of the barrel.

Why the hell would he want to use aluminium?

geez if that was an ek product,eddy would have conducted tests and his findings would be that they recommend only to use an ek approved aluminum spoon,to prevent corrosion:rofl:

This is not too popular. I would definitely use Vario D5 with this to help with bleeding.

If you are looking for compact, why not DDC?

I never said leave in the aluminum. It's just something that's thin and malleable that you can shape into a U channel to catch the air bubbles. Simply having the spoon in to help bleeding isn't going to instantaneously corrode your rad and blocks.

EDIT: Do like this: XSPC Res Top bleeding made easy
