Yes,

I have these (http://www.koolance.com/water-coolin...product_id=888) on the CPU Block, Res and Rad.

I have these on the ends of the tubing (http://www.koolance.com/water-coolin...product_id=879).

My video card is the only thing that comes out of the system with two tubes still hanging off if it

Plus I have a male and female QDC (compression fitting) with just a tube off of each for draining as shown in the first post

But to tie into original post's purpose: Yes!! This is a very effective way of draining a system or individual components if setup that way.

I had to RMA my first 590 hydro copper as it had a leak in the seam of the block which showed up during an initial leak test. All it took was to take the card out and reinstall the hose segment, still full of coolant, back from the CPU to the Res and put the air cooled video card back in.

The ID is for the hose. There is no ID for the threaded male QDC in my case. It screws directly into the component (eg. CPU Block) the important part is that they are both VL3N series.

If setting things up as I did you would want to get the female QDC with the appropriate ID to match your hose size.

Take a look at the CPU block picture near the bottom of this page:

http://www.koolance.com/technical/qu..._fittings.html

It is pretty much that setup that I have on my block, res and rad.

Well it seems the VL3N female only goes up to 5/8" OD not good if you have a 3/4" OD Tube

Yea, would have to go VL4N for that size tubing. I have not seen them but I hear they are monsters (v. big) lol. Two of the threaded ones may not fit size by side on that cpu pic on the page I linked.

I just have a "t" with a valve and barb at the bottom. Open the valve to drain the loop into the container of your choice. I'll get pics in a few minutes.

Edit: The bottom fitting is my in-line drain valve -- 250 PSI Brass Fittings and Ball Valve FTW!!!

Or get a three way valve...if I want to drain I just turn the valve to go out the bottom. I have it right after the pump so that I can drain under power. Then more coolant get sucked out of my radiators.
