OK when you seal it back up again tip the rig around in every direction as much as you can. You may have an air pocket.

Coolant expands so it's good practice to not only leave a gap but to install a pressure release valve in the top of the res.

Overfilling is very bad though. You'll leave it nowhere to go and end...

My apologies. I forgot to tell you that everything needs serious cleaning before you can use it. Have had a lot on my mind recently.

With regards to your CPU temps, this is why we said you didn't...

So long as the fittings are rated at the same size (example 15/12) then it will work fine with 15/12 hose. Personally I used all straight fittings, then / 1/4 rotaries (snake, straight, 90 degree, 45...

Ah yes. When you fill make sure to tip your rig around to the extreme to make sure you get out all of the air. I made the mistake of not bleeding a rad properly once and the temps were rubbish.

I would personally turn the rads around so the fittings are closer. That way you don't have to run a big long hose all the way along the rad itself. It's cleaner to go from the rad output to the CPU...

Have you taken into account that you are going to have to turn the water direction? like, fit both fittings into the back of the GPU where there is not much space?

Both are designed to run in professional 24/7 applications. They should last for years, given that they pretty much float without friction in water. The impeller has a water bearing basically, so...

DDC are more powerful dude. Well, dependent on the version (in watts). They are noisier though. Probably because they are much slimmer than D5, which is quite fat. I do prefer how the DDC goes...

I have a D5 in my green and silver rig. It's nowhere near as powerful as the DDC. I agree also about the D5 being "quieter" but I can't hear my DDC at all. The EK kit is great too, as it comes with...

Seriously don't waste your money. Two 420 is pointless. A good 420 should be enough to saturate, and you will only be limited by your GPU itself.
