I am in the final stage of creating my W/C build and have a couple of questions. First, how do I clean out my brand new pump to make sure there is nothing inside of it? Second, what is the best way to perform a leak test? Last, is there any visually appealing way to add a purge to my loop? I have seen white plastic ones that look like cheap pvc and I don't want that.
**something small like a t-virus reservoir or something of that sort**
If you have a T-virus, you can use the spare port on that for a drain line,
I have two and hook them both to a bucket to flush my rig out
ofc any multiport res can offer you that choice, mounted correctly
I decided against the t-virus way too expensive and visual appeal isn't worth $120 to me personally, but your method of flushing sounds very efficient and easy. Thank you for the input Motopsychojdn I will be sure to keep it in mind depending how my setup looks when I get everything in.
Ya that would look sick to do in reverse with the tubes coming from the outside in through the front. To much work though I have already been trying to put this PC together for 2 months now just ready to be done at this point lol
Heres a shot from when I was bleeding the rig,(Old pic, hadn't added the cards to the loop yet) which is the reason for the cabletie around the reservoir, but you see how clean it looks?
And routing isn't that difficult, no severe kinks at all, even with the 120mm fan in front of the res
and ofc it just looks normal from the front, meshed drivebay covers,
The second pump is in the radbox underneath the main rig and I'm just waiting on some fittings and wire then I'm adding the third res/pump to the loop, probably going above the first res so even more tubing to hide hehe
That's super duper clean man haha looks awesome! I might be convinced it depends on how quickly I can get the stuff shipped to me, I want it done so I can play some black ops before I head back to school. Haven't been able to squeeze in any time for a video game all semester long
