"Secret" fill/drain port has revealed !!!

Thread Starter 
Look at my current rig:



Wonder how would I fill/drain my loop? My little secret fill/drain port has revealed:

Nicely done.

And nice setup!

I've been considering drilling a hole in the top of my 800D for a fillport lol.


I'll probably get a load of quick release valves when I can justify spending a few hundred pounds on reducing the effectiveness of my liquid cooling though.

Nice, I'm a noob at water cooling but under your GPU blocks it looks like a kink in the line at this angle anyway

Phew missed that, I believe you're right.

Needs about an inch less tubing there.


Considering the restriction of other parts of his loop though, and the strength of that pump, I doubt the kink is sufficient to actually harm temperatures.

Nope, it's not a kink, it's actually viewing angle, I posted a youtube vid on my other post, or you can see here:

Thanks.

I've seen others with the fill/drain port with "hole on top", It's neat.
