    The number of stickies at the top of the Extreme Cooling forum was starting to build up and making the place look cluttered, so a cleanup was in order.

    Please reply to this thread with those thread that you feel would be good to link here, and mred32 or myself will respond.

    Please note, I will be trimming this thread to a bare minimum. If your request for a thread to be added is accepted, then your request will be deleted to keep this thread uncluttered.

    I believe that this will allow for a wider range of useful threads to be accessible by all without clutter, and without resorting to the Search utility where it can sometimes be hard to track down old information.

    And maybe there could a specific club for Bong users (the computer kind) above and beyond, or at least seperate from, the Evaporative coolers club. I mean, it has a nice ring to it, doesnt it? "OCAU Bong Users Club".

    Cheers :)

    While admittedly there are some people for whom the effects appear to be minor, I've known too many people who were (and still are) adversely affected by marijuana use for me to be ambivalent about the drug reference word "bong".

    You'll note that I always refer to them as evaporative cooling setups.

    So "OCAU Evaporative Cooling Users Club" is suitable.

    Yes, I'm a stick in the mud. I'm haunted by constant reminders of lives gone awry from marijuana use, and I don't believe it's something to make light of.

    You might wanna consider adding the Heatercore Archive to this list of stickies. As when i was hunting for DIY info i found it very helpful.

    There is still the occasional thread about what & where heatercores / rads to use.

    Hi Guys,
    Im not to sure if i have put this in the wrong area so my apologies in advance.

    i've just bought a load of water cooling parts which will form my first water cooled system and im very nervous about installing it all.

    I have read through rubba-chikin's closed loop tutorial but there is no mention of reservoir obviously

    What other steps need to be taken when bleeding a water cooled system with a reservoir?

    is there an appropriate step by step guide i can follow?

    i think the common wisdom is to put a fill port / bleed valve at the highest point in the loop.

    in my loop my rad is at the top and has 6 ports, 4 of them plugged. Air rises to the top of the loop so at some point i'll put a small fill hose in one of the ports. and plug its loose end during operation

    Poke's head in and say hi after a long time away. :)

    Interestingly after taking an extending hiatus, and poking about the web, I see that OCAU water-cooling forum still remains as one of the best sources for liquid cooling chit-chat. Good job guys!
