    Noisy watercooling due to powerful pump

    Got my WC rigged up the other day, and the pump (eheim 1250) is pretty powerful so it causes a lot of air bubbles to mix with the water in the reservoir, which get sucked round the system making it quite noisy. is there anyway round this, other than killing the flow by adding loads of elbows etc?

    Prevent it from getting any air in there to make bubbles with. eventually all the bubbles will come to the top. Replace them with water!

    TeePee is correct - keep topping up the res until there are no air bubbles.
