Default Hydro X Series XC7 - not fully filled with coolant

Hi all,

I noticed that my XC7 CPU block is not fully filled with coolant.
Is this normal?

When first installing, it's not unusual to have bubbles. They will usually work themselves out. You can possibly speed up the process by altering the speed of the pump or leaning the case.

Yup. Pretty much every time. Tilt the case (if possible) so the exit port is higher. The bubble will flow out and eventually drop back into the reservoir.

Also, in this style block and in your configuration, it likely has zero effect on temperature. However, it would annoy me just a little and certainly enough to try and work it out.
