Take the rad out and pop a hose off.

If you are worried take your psu out.
If you recommend a product LINK THE REVIEW

Get along or run along. Your choice

I cover everything at the bottom in kitchen roll, then get a big jug, put it under the graphics card, then unscrew one of the caps on the bottom.

Or, get an M20 to 1/4inch thread like:
Assuming you have an M20 fill port in the reservoir - then attach a fitting and tubing to it, and tip up your case to just use that as a spout.

The state of your pc is criminal lmao

That's more dust than I've been cleaning out of pcs at work and they've had unfiltered intakes for 2 years in a room that houses a max of 121~ smelly teenage kids at a time.

At least screw some kind of filter to that rear intake!

That is rather surprising to see. You have to keep it clean or the water cooling is just a waste of money.
