    if its aurora, then the swirl might be the particles of the fluid.
    Only idea I´ve got in mind to bleed the system airless is power doen the pump.
    Other than that, the loop looks good to me and I don´t see a reason to change something about it.
    If you want to check if the "swirls" is air or the fluid, what happens when you power down the system ? Is Air getting back into the res when you play with the hose from the pump to the floor rad ? If not then, it might just be the fluid and its particles, which I´ve to admit I really like

    Thanks for the feedback all.

    First off, it is Feser UV liquid.

    The pump res seems to be the issue, there is a TON of turbulence in the res and that seems to be causing the issue. The liquid is now foamy upon heating up. I am going to try and calm down the reservoir somehow, as this seems to be the issue.

    I am going to strip it down after, drain everything, flush it thoroughly and see what happens when I start again.

    such small pump-res combos do mostly suffer from such turbulences, Some brands have a small piece of foam included to reduce these tourbulences

    I heard that foam is meant to calm it down.

    I am going to shut down now and try the foam to see if that fixes the issue.

    Think the foam may well do the trick, sure I've had this problem with the same res.

    Stoked to see this and shoot some photos of it at LAN!

    Great job cutting the bottom yourself.

    Thanks J. Rig is all up and running now. I am happy to say its 99% complete.

    Still having issues with air getting in the loop, I think its the DDC pump, the lack of control on it is causing the fluid to be pumped too fast. I'm sure if I had a D5 on setting 1, there would be no issues. I wonder if I can slow the DDC down or get a DDC with a vario?

    Thanks for looking as always, I will update with pics ASAP.

    mmm sure i've had problems just like you. Never had that with the D5 but you defo get issues fitting d5s with tops in the Parvum. Sure there is a way you can slow it. Keep me posted on FB with what ever you figure out.

    Stoked to get a beer and see you at LAN!

    DDC work well with a fan controller controlling the voltage,I tend to use Lampton FC5's or FC6's for this.

    Also consider a jet tube on the return feed if the ports are at the same ends

    The fan controller doesnt work :(

    Mayhems coolant is in and it looks incredible. Back to the Bitspower pump top, I have added a fan termintion instead of Molex and I am running a fan speed reducer to slow the pump down. It seems to be doing the trick, for now.

    I will see if I can get a new fan controller sorted before LAN!
