Okay I'm trying to get my watercooling system all setup. I think I'm having trouble with priming the pump or something. I have an Iwaki pump, connected to a resevoir (a plastic container with barbs sticking out) and the resevoir just fills up with water and does not progress throught out the rest of the system, does the resevoir have to be air tight or somethin? I wanted to be able to stick my chiller into the resevoir to chill the water that passes through it.

If this makes any sense or doesnt...please straighten me out, cheers.

Umm, sounds like you have the res on the outlet of the pump, should be on the inlet of the pump...
