Last Preperation

Ok, I have everything attached, case cleared out of my tech stuff, connecting the pump and fans to a 2nd computer next to mine so I can test the water loop without endangering anything.

Is there anything I gotta do before I put coolant in? I know the basic stuff like make sure its all attached and everything, I'm using 1/2inch barbs and when I put it on its dead tight. Have checked everything a gazillion times. Takes a lot of effort to do anything to it.

Anything I should do? Ive basically just put it all together Just don't wanna miss anything...

the outlet should be the one on the side as the padle throws the water from the centre to the side as it spins

@ Hatman - In that picture you posted, the outlet is the one you have attached the tubing to.

Thank you very much both of you.

Tried it and it leaked anyway

However I have one question:

Do you run the pump when filling the resevoir? So it circulates all the wat er around? I just wonder because mine isn't working atm, molex aren't supplying power for w.e reason. The laws of physics seem to not be applying to my pipes.

Lots of fun though. Lots of mess
