Draining my loop

Hi All,

Looking for some advice re. draining my system...any hints tips etc? Here's a fair pic of my loop to give you an idea of what I'm dealing with:



Thanks for any help you can offer.

pull the pump out the bottom and unscrew the top barb over a big fat bowl.

Yep that's what I'd do too. Make sure you have lots of towels/tissues around just in case. If all the H˛O doesn't come out in one go, start disassembling it bit by bit but try to keep it away from other components. If I'm doing a total loop re-route I take the mobo and GPU's out

Really like the black look. Are you using black tubing or black fluid?

How long did it take to drain, pull apart, and re-setup the new setup inc leak testing?

From the looks of it he's drained out all the old blue fluid & swapped it for the black Feser stuff. Ordinarily it would'nt be my thing but it works in your setup & I really like it.

I see you swapped out the ugly blue 90 deg. bend for the delrin block... very nice touch mate!
