Default Bleed'n the air outta those lines!

For those of you that dont like having a water tank and are into a closed loop system, bleeding the lines is a very good thing.


The bleeded system I made for project DH DOES WORK!. I tested it a few nights ago by allowing a bti of air to get into the system and then seeing with a flashlight through the coolant lines how long it would take till the bubbles would dissapear and get bleed off. Well it only took 1 day! See the momentum of the water will only throw a small bit of air ever revolution into the air trap. So it takes countless cycles till its gone, but it does work!

This ai a great solution cause it doesnt require anything more then a T connector, and a end cap and a 10" peice of tubing.

I am working on a few more cooling setup designs and will post them here to get debunked before I go and actually try them.

Hmm i'm thinking of doing a closed loop system like your DH3... let me know if this could work:

at the topmost part of the circuit, a T junction that goes off to the side (thorugh the case), then straight up, with a cap on top. This would make the air naturally go up there, right?

Yousee where the res tanks are in DH3? they are put there for that reason, they will be filled half with coolant and the other half for air. it will naturally prime the system when its filled, and will trap all the air. A LOT of planning went into the design of this system.
