Just seen this didnt know we are on next page lolWeird that there's an airbubble there to me... that doesn't look like a channel where water goes??
Yeah, if you broke it, I wouldn't even RMA it. That's taking advantage of the system.
I'd still investigate why there is an air bubble in a place where water/air shouldn't be. That's not good.
https://www.overclockers.com/beginners-guide-water-cooling/ said:Radiator preparation is one oft-missed item. Boil sink water and let it cool for 5 min. Pour into the radiator, filling it up, and let it sit 10 minutes. Drain half of the water or so and shake it till your arms hurt, shaking 3-4 minutes, like a crazy person. Drain into a clear container. Do the Â“radiator danceÂ” again and again till the water coming out is clear and there is no gunk once the water settles. Then do it two more times. Finally, fill the rad with distilled (or deionized) water and do the rad dance one last time. NOW and only now is your radiator 90% clean. No worries, the last 10% will come out in the next year or two when you redo your loop for maintenance.
Heh.. RAM watercooling... up there with m.2 watercooling... useless. I'd say ask first, but you'd do it anyway....
These troubles will keep me off hard tubing... that and the fact that I change components way too often. These something to be said about KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid).
Im thinking you enjoy the pain of it all
If you do the math (265L /H = 4.4L /M = 1.xG /Minute, you're right within range. More will not help, really...(the juice isn't worth the squeeze).
If you're running dual D5's, I would not go for more pumps necessarily. And I've found it's pretty hard to get more than 1GPM in any loop.
Can you list all of the blocks that are in this loop now, and specify if they are in series or parallel?
