Bubbles in Water Cooling

  1. Just how big of a problem is this?

    I've tried to get the bubbles out of my tubing, but it's proving really difficult to get all of them, and Im wondering if it will even make a big difference.

    The trouble is, the only place for bubbles to escape is through the filling hole in the reservoir, but it's hard to maneuver them through the cpu block, radiator, etc..

    I asked a friend and he said he left some bubbles in his by mistake- but he says he likes them because he can see if theyre flowing in the tubes. Claims to have had no problems, but I just want to be sure

    There is no real threat to having bubbles in your tubing. I purchased a Thermaltake Big water cooling system recently and there are always small bubbles throughout the tubing. As long is it is not impairing your cooling I wouldnt worry about it

    yes, having insignificant amiunts of bubbles is nothing to worry about. but if the bubbles are increasing in size or number, you can be suspicious of a leak...
