Just got the pics off my camera. Here's the pic of the loop setup that I originally wanted to have. This was pre-fill.



Keep in mind that this isn't the current loop setup, please see my build log for the most recent one (along with the explanation of why). I would like to switch back to the one pictured above, but would like some advice on the best way to fill and bleed the loop. No reservoirs, unless you can suggest a spot in the case where there's enough room. Oh, and no case modding either, I'd prefer not to cut anymore =). I don't mind paying for extra fittings & tubes.

Someone mentioned "add a t-block to the connection between the middle rad and bottom rad - right where the bottom compression fitting is. Flip the case upside down to fill. Use current GPU fill line, add a line to the t-block. Make sure tubes are extra long, hold them up high. This should allow air to escape through the t-block line. Clamp the lines when you're done bleeding, cut tubes and plug it up. I can see the logic here, but I'm not sure if it's the best path.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

in the pic below the 9:00 clock positions is the outlet an this should be @ 12:00 when mounted in case to allow removal of air pockets in pump


so in tower the outlet should be on the left side of pump in vert position on horiz not an issue

wow just notice in pic the outlet is marked as in lol

with second pic for not having pump in hand an logic working

best place connections left to right with upper part of pump in tower set-up

I'm having a hell of a time understanding your grammar.

are you saying that in the OP's pic, the inlet is higher than the outlet, but it should actually be the other way around?

what saying is should mount pump with connections W-E not a N-S configuration

but some will argue, it don't matter what way you turn pump position

pic speak for themselves for pump innards need to be self bleeding (outlet @ top of impeller cavity)

now if swimming under water and you release gas.......what way bubbles go ?

same is you have a cup in hand by bottom of cup and a full sink of water

then place cup in sink upside down......if a hole was on the bottom of cup

what will happen .......self bleeding

correct after looking at h220 innards should be a west - east config with connections above rotor center

in a tower set-up to allow pump to self bleed

if were flat (desktop) no issues

If it were me (assuming i'm looking at that picture correctly) I'd remove the middle rad and replace it with a micro res like someone else suggested. Am I seeing 3x 120 rads?
A/ it cleans up the build
B/ you won't get a vapour lock and have less expantion issues.
