    I believe you should switch your loop around so the water flows through your mono block before your GPU's, pump - rad - mono block - gpu's - rad - res
    Personally I would go pump to top rad to mono block to gpu's to front rad to res

    I thought about switching it to something like that route. I'll have to work on switching that around this week. Hopefully i have enough pieces left over that are long enough incase i need a longer section of tubing.

    If your pump is PWN controlled leave it unconnected from your motherboard or controller during loop testing, if it is adjustable turn it to max speed during testing
    If you don't have a tee fitting with a bale valve and drain tube you should consider ordering them to make it easier for maintenance, extra tubing is a must

    Yea its PWM controlled. Its not adjustable at all atleast i dont think it is or wouldn't know where you could adjust it at but supposedly its suppose to spin at 100% when not connected but i can't hear it unless i put my ear down to it. I can feel it spinning when i touch the pump motor housing just dont know what RPMs its spinning at. But i don't have anything else connected to the PSU but the 4 pin molex from the Pump/res and thats it.

    I do have a ball valve and all. In the first picture from a previous post here you can see it in the bottom right corner. As far as extra tubing, ill probably end up ordering more from ekwb tonight hopefully.

    AS for now the routing is pump > front PE 360 rad > GPUs > Top XE 480 Rad > Monoblock > then top of Res. But ill try to work on doing it your way and see what i get. I jsut need to get that monoblock to start filling. The explanation on my previous post i sent to EK as well just makes me think its something wrong equipment wise or something. The res should be droping in coolant a little more from the top since the monoblock isnt full yet.

    also does it really matter if the ports on the front rad is on the bottom like i have it in the pic or should they be at the top instead?

    Ok so i got it figured out as to why it wasnt filling. When it goes from GPU to Top XE480 Rad, that port had a piece of scotch tape over the fitting hole. I figured it out when i was pulling things apart to re route it to try something different. It then went from XE480 to GPU. So since very little coolant was getting through the hole to fill the top rad it wasnt enough to fill the monoblock.


    Now as for the image 2017-06-20 00.20.18.jpg, Thats the Port on the top XE480 rad that had a piece of tape on the fitting when i took the tube off but its not leaking but that part of the rad as you can see on that one port looks a little weird. Like a flaw in the rad where the factory part of itis showing a little bit of the goldish color like it came apart some. ITs only that port on the xe480 but not the other port on it but it is on one of the ports on the from PE360 rad. Just not that bad. But i am keeping an eye on that PE360 port for leaks. IT may have been jsut left overs from taking things apart cause it was a pain to get the 3 way splitter i bought in the somewhat right position to split off to the ball valve. I wiped it off so once i start leak testing it i will see.


    But again its fully filling everything right now including the monoblock. It was the piece of tape all along. I thought about before i found it redoing the routing to go from pump to top xe480 rad to monoblock to gpu's to from PE360 rad and back to res but im gonna see what this does since i got a rad to cool the coolantafter it leaves the GPUs and after it leaves the monoblock and goes into the res then back out to the front rad before it gets back to the GPUs. By that time since i have a 250ml res the coolant should be somewhat cooled off by that time hah?

    I will say this trying to get a good low point on that bottom port where my ball valve is and getting that 3 way splitter in the right position for it to work is a pain in the butt. I got it so most of it will drain and all i gotta do is blow into a tube into the top of the res to get most of the rest. Still doesnt drain 100% but it does a decent job.

    Sounds like your getting things worked out, we all have these type of issues on our first water cooling build, the pump speed can be controlled by connecting to any motherboard fan header and controlling the speed the same way you would any fan by temperature, you may want to set a minimum speed some trial and testing will be needed, if not connected it will run at 100% speed, ASUS has very good bios control for fans, you can never drain 100% of water, I do the same as you said, drain and blow into a tube, QD's quick disconnect fittings are the best option if you dissemble the system to change components a lot but not needed in most peoples systems

    Yea i'll have to figure some of that out. I've never really went that deep into controlling things like that hardly. I have a few fan header splitter cables and boards that get power from molex connector so i dont have to worry about over drawing power from the board if it gets over 1 amp. But i think my plans are to put the top 4 rad fans and front rad fans on the main CPU fan header and the pump i think on the other CPU OPT header. The read will be on a the rear fan header of the board. Or if i have the availability ill put the pump on the other chassis header thats toward the front of mobo. I have the Asus x99 deluxe ii mobo. So it has the 2 cpu headers, h_amp_header (rear fan), w_pump, cha_fan1, cha_fan2 and i also have a secondary board that i can connect that comes with the asus deluxe that has (4) 4pin headers on it.

    now im not familiar with the w_pump connector and if its for my type of pump or what or anything so if anyone who reads this post please let me know, Nate, menthol. I've never really gotten this deep with PCs. im a computer geek and my dad was too when he was alive but we always just got fans with high CFM and plugged them in and all so this is new ground for me.

    So question, I've let it run for 14 hours from yesterday when i got off work till this monring before i left for work then i turned it off cause i wouldnt be there till later tonight. chances of it leaking during that time is slim i know since it hasnt in 14 hours but didnt know if i should let it run for another 10 or so hours to equal the 24 hours they say let it leak test. I know your suppose to let it run 24 hours straight but im not able to do that.

    Whats yalls thoughts on it?
