Removing Water from XSPC Kit?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,
Just curious- what's the best way to remove the liquid from my loop or enough to add in my graphics card, from my XSPC kit that has the pump/res combo?
Thanks!

Pretty much, just pick the lowest point in your loop and carefully take off the tubing. Have a box of tissues handy and a bowel.

Drain the water out of the res and then take off the tubing. Don't drain it and then cycle the pump to push more water into it, you'll run the pump dry and damage the impeller.

I'd REALLY recommend putting a drain line in, makes life so much easier.

Would it require more parts? I have extra tubing tongue.gif

Also, what's the best way to empty a res? Turkey Baster? Because once I take off the tube connecting the res to the CPU block, it will all go everywhere tongue.gif

Yeah, something like that. I put a piece of tubing in and then sucked a little, seeing as it was lower than the lowest part of the res it would just drain it all out.

It does require a few more parts, 3 barbs, a stopper and a T fitting.

I can link you to them if you'd like.

That'd be great smile.gif even though I really don't have the money to spend on any additional parts yet :/
