Default Corsair H55 / radiator with the fluid half filled.

The title is self explanatory. This video below is abnormal, right?

I just got this unit. Did not install it yet. From my feeling of the weight of the thud and the sound, I imagine less than 50% filled, but I could be wrong / only opening it to really know for sure (of course I am not going to do that).

I assume that something went wrong when the unit was filled. I saw some liquid on the hose / connections and in a rad groove as well. I thought it could be condensation (room ambient, so I don't think this is possible) and the unit now has oil marks that I can wipe off, but unexpected. *Edit: I left the unit working outside the case overnight and there are no spills, but I am wary of it. I am not comfortable with this unit at all.

What do you guys think?

I got one from eBay, pre-owned with similar sloshing sound which suggest air's inside, and also wondering what is the original weight of the H55 without the bracket and 4 thumb screws un-attached.

It would also be useful for maintenance reference down the line?
