Did you have to pay any brokerage?

Nope. I bought it from Dazmode. Just having issues with mounting the pump. They have a chart showing that I can mount the res and pump together but it won't work for me. So now I have to decide where the pump goes. I also descovered that I could fit the rad with fans mounted at the top if the fittings other comes with the motherboard were 90 degrees angles ones instead of barbs. Damn!

Wrong instructions for this package when it comes to mounting the pump with the reservoir. They need to include the EK-DCP 4.0 combo reservoir and not the one they sell to people with the package.

Do I have to do a full 24 hr test or is an hr enough? So far I have no leaks from any connections. The only leaks I got were from the rad due to their cheap plastic plugs. So I used the plugs that came from the reservoir and no more leaks. Can I just go ahead and power it up now or keep running it on the external PSU for 24 hrs?

If my loop doesn't leak by the time I am done bleeding that is good enough for me. Just double and triple check that your fittings are tight and there is no leak between the fittings and the block. Most of the time that is where something will leak.

Ok. I checked everything again and they're all good. Fittings are tight as heck and the pump is running smooth. Time to fire this baby up for real.

All is well and running smooth. I just want that damn NZXT H630 here asap so I can do what I want, add another rad. Should I use anything other than purified water?

distilled water is enough for most loops. I add a couple OZ of glycol to my loops but that's optional.

Don't over tighten fittings on your blocks and stuff. Especially if they are plastic holes... easy to crack or strip threads. Hand tight with a little tweak is enough.

I had them tightened the. Loosened them a bit afterwards. Thanks for the tips.
