I was looking at the T fittings below well it's not shaped like a T fittings click the link below and see it's like a square shape that has 3x 1/4 threads I was wondering can I fit 3 compression fittings in this and use one for draining ?

Install at lowest point and your fine.

any barb/compression will work.

Sorry when you say "lowest point" what do you mean I was thinking of having it between the Water Block OUT tube going to the Reservoir/Pump Combo IN like in the picture below ? By the way this is the case my water cooling system will be in aswell THE Xigmatek Elysium very big case

Thanks for that am guessing this is the only best way to drain water?. Does anyone no any other ways I just want it to be easy as possible.

Thats what im going to do when i reassemble my loop if i have enough tube left over, draining mine from the res which is at the highest point in my loop was a bit of a pain!

Another viable way to drain a loop for some is to siphon out from the reservoir. Of course if your res not near the lowest point in your loop then that may well not be possible. With my setup I can tilt the case forward slightly and make the res the lowest point then siphon out from it, eliminating the need for a drain.

Sorry to hijack, but would this plug work with the above t fitting? Instead of actually having a t-line this plug would take its place. Would the plug affect the flowrate?
