Or you could go fancier and drain from several points depending on how you are set up. A little more info and I am sure some other H2O pros will chime in as well.
I just started to purchase products of the net and used rads on here.
Black Ice gtx480
Swiftech Apogee HD parrallel cpu block
Koolance VID-AR699 Radeon HD6990 VGA Liquid Cooling Block (No Fittings)
XSPC Dual 5.25" Bay Reservoir - Laing D5 / MCP655 w/ Blue LED Light - Clear / Silver / Black
Danger Den DreamFlex Value Pack - Tubing / Clamps / Tube Cutter ( 1/2"ID x 3/4"OD ) - UV Red
Plus this drainage valve from koolance Koolance G1/4" Brass Inline Drain Valve Fitting (VLV-XTSPL)
Am I missing any parts to complete my water cooling system or this list is enough to get me going. Btw my case is case labs th10.

I let a little water drain and then open up my res top and all the water just runs out. Easy as pie.
The design really depends on your loop and where the lowest point is. If it is a res, then use a spare port off that. If it is a line, then put in a T block or use my trick.
Do I still need QDCs or is the koolance drainage valve sufficient for drainage?
