    Doesnt sound out of spec or the like, I've ran T-lines before, which are a bitch to bleed.... best thing is to keep it running, the air will naturally work out.

    Right done! Thanks.

    I'll just leave that running then, hopefully I don't knock it or something stupid :laugh:


    ( Seems I've ran out of thanks so everyone will get more tomorrow : ])

    keep me posted on everything, water cooling can be such fun with the challenges it gives.

    Thanks man!
    It was a lot easier last loop I had I tell you that :laugh:

    Had a
    Magicool UV 360
    Liang DDC1 with XSPC res top
    and a D-tek Fuzion v2 all with 1/2 ID tubing.

    All that went together no problem and kept what ever I was using at the time under 40 degrees c at all times. ( I think it was a xeon 3220 but it was ages ago)



    Whilst I reckon I'm still going to sell my rig( I've had quite enough of this shitty motherboard :laugh: it's buggered up this FX chip as well so it no longer does 4.4 @ 1.31v), I'm thinking of keeping the water cooling parts for next time around.

    Cept the block, damn thing leaks unless the fittings are tightened to an obscene degree.

    That and I still think it may be a bottle neck to performance with this radiator, none of the pipes on the rad ever get warm. ( but touching the block it's noticeably above room temperature, not hot though)


    By the by the fin array of the radiator is 85mm not what ever I said it was before, that's total thickness including the shroud.

    BUMP!/Update

    Okay after how ever many days of the air not clearing I decided "FUCK THIS NOISE!" ( see what I did there :cool:)

    And fitted the Stock AMD heatsink so I could take apart the pump to have a look at it.

    There was a washer that was out of place I refitted that and set up a simple Res/pump loop with the res sat higher than the pump ( using my xspc res instead of the thermaltake one) and well, it works!

    Pump is whisper quiet :laugh:
    When I first opened up the pump the blades were touching the casing pretty much, after putting the washer back it left a 1mm gap between the blades and casing.

    I'm guessing the ticking type noise was the blades stopping and starting or some such.

    Second hand, I suspect the previous owner used to reservoir that attaches directly to the pump and put the thing together wrong when reassembling. ( and obviously it would of worked fine before hand hence them suggesting it was air)

    All good though, I should of taken it apart as soon as I get it like I usually do :laugh:


    Just one more thing if you will guys I have this reservoir http://www.xs-pc.com/products/reservoirs/uv-blue-single-5-25-bay-reservoir/ ( going to use it instead of the TT one) what should side should be the inlet?

    Id go with the one on the side, rather than the one in the middle... its smoother for the air to work its way out of suspension in the water.
