 FILL AND DRAIN GUIDE

STEP BY STEP ON PROPERLY FILLING AND DRAINING YOUR PC

STEP ONE - CHOOSING YOUR FLUID

Filling your system will be different according to the fluid you’re using in your system. Thoroughly research the fluid your interested in and weigh the pros and cons. After carefully deciding go through our walk through on how to properly fill and drain your system.

STEP TWO - GOING THROUGH THE CHECKLIST

  • Ensure all your watercooled blocks are installed correctly to your hardware. You can individually check these before installing your loop by simply filling distilled/di water into them individually and inspecting them. 

  • Upon cleaning your radiator check to be sure there are no leaks. This is rare, but radiators can accidentally get punctured. 

  • Fill your reservoir cap all the inlets/outlets and ensure no leaking occurs. If you’re using our CTR and there’s any leak, it’s most likely due to a loose CTR ring (never over-tighten the ring that goes around the pump) or a missing o-ring. Checkout the assembly guide for your reservoir if you’re having issues. (link)

  • Connect your loop and double check every fitting connection. Ensure they’re tightened and that no o-rings were missing on your fittings and blocks. 

  • Once your loop is completely connected, start laying paper towels all around areas that could possibly leak and around components that are vulnerable to getting wet. 

We recommend that you buy a jumper for your PSU in order to jump your pump without having your computer powered. This essentially protects you from a possible leak not ruining any of your electrical components. For more information on the jumper checkout the product page (link)

Step Three - FILLING YOUR LOOP

With your loop prepped, cleaned, and properly built, it’s time to get that loop filled. Before jumping into this final process, each fluid has some different tips and tricks to filling. Check out your fluid for the best results.
