How to fill my desk loop? Also, all of my alphacool rotary fittings leak!

Water Cooling - www.overclock.net
Hey guys, I'm building a desk PC. Currently, I've tried three different approaches to mount my reservoir, but I can't seem to figure out how to fill the loop appropriately.

I'm getting a ton of bubbles, and once I do get it running, all of my alphacool rotary fittings leak.

They are all leaking in contact with where they screw in, but NOT where the tubing is fitted.

None of my bitspower fittings leak.

Can anyone suggest to me on how to approach filling my loop with a desk this big, and how can I stop my fittings from leaking?

Here are a bunch of pics of my loop, minus the pump. (the reservoir exits the hole in the desk down to my cabinet, into my 35x pump, then up and out to my CPU.

The white are bitspower, and silver are alphacool.

Here's a link to the album. I need some suggestions on how I should fill it. I've been filling the reservoir with an extra tube and a syringe, but the water always seems to get stuck.
