    The clear tubing, and barb set up was Home Depot. Jab-tech didn't have everything so my dad and I played around with it some. Good old engineering style!

    That's all I use is the $.28 tubing from Lowes. Works fine here.

    It was gelled coolant. Most likely from somebody running a cheap coolant, or one of the Feser coolants/dyes.

    Alright after I ask this question with this post, I will be putting up another post with pictures of all my stuff I got and finally how I got it set up. basically Im running a Laind D4 (made by Corsair) pump a koolance 3x120MM rad (bought from Binge) OCZ Hydra Flow Water Block and a BitsPower Cylindrical Res (not overly huge).

    anyways I cant seem to get my pump to pull the water (running a test setup run to check for leaks) from the Res. I have the fill port lid off and it wont work and I have it on and it still wont pull the water. Its working great (the pump) but for some reason I dont know why it aint working. Check for the pics and you will see how I got it set up.

    I am thinking that the Bitspower has a small leak at the bottom (not sure why though Markexx took care with the shipping and I just got it out).

    These are pics of my parts and various set up process. I wound up using some high pressure PTFE pink Teflon tape (rather than that used for Gas lines) to double ensure no leaking. I had a small leak from the back of the rad but I believe that was from me not having them nozzles tight. I think I may need another Res as this one has a small leak.

    Alright, let us try this right here. Ignore the black tape Im using to hold it on (along with double sided 3m sticky tape) for the Res. It will be changed. Im not sure if I want the MCRES one not sure where to mount that.

    Notice I have the Rad emptying out into the right side of the res and the pump pulling in from the left side. I do hope I dont have the Rad ports mistaken for what goes where :(

    I have it the way I think it would go with the fill jar on the bottom and the screw cap on the top with the inlet and outlet on top. I assumed with the bleeder/fill port up there that was the way to go.

    Try it with the inlet/outlet at the bottom...and mount it so the tubing then goes down to the inlet on the pump.

    With the inlet/outlet at the top the pump maybe getting air instead of water.

    EDIT:Looking at the pic..turn the res round and use the port on the bottom of the res(the black part) for your outlet till pump and then use one of the side ports (on the black part) for the inlet till res.
    Your res should be this way up in pic

    Just a word of caution..dont run the pump without it getting water as this can lead to them failing prematurely.

    Yeah it would be best that the res is the highest part and then route your tubing straight down to the inlet on the pump.

    Alright, so that worked alot better. Now I just have to cycle the power for a couple of hours to get all the air bubbles out. Draining it might not be so bad though. One thing is, I am going to have to wait for my Swiftech Mcres V2 to come in and use that. This works great but I already ordered that thinking I had a leak :( . I like this bitspowers though. I will have to mount it internally though. The distance to travel for the res to the pump is longer than I would like. I find I have small bubbles (like pop bubbles in a pepsi or something) and the pump is housing two decent air bubbles that I cant seem to get out.

    Yeah I was thinking I would have to do something like that. Unfortunately my 5.25 bays are DVD RW, DVD rw and then HDD fan/sink thing (no HDD in there) then I got my card reader. Id like to mount it somewhere else in the inside but I am not sure.
