Would this fitting work for draining/filling?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi!




My new Fractal Design Arc case has just arrived and Im about to drain my old loop.

I've had some earlier problems draining my old loop in my 800d so I thought a T or Y fitting would make it easier draining.


Would this fitting work?
FITTING


ALSO: Between what liquid cooling components should I put it?

All my fittings are bitspower so this one would fit me perfectly.

Heres a pic on how I've set up my case.

That layout looks fine. It doesn't really matter what the order, just that the res needs to go before the pump.

You want it at the lowest point to drain the most liquid the easiest. so it looks like right after the pump is the best spot.
