It's generally a good idea to plumb a drain line.

Would hate to torque a fitting in the case.
I actually might have some of those fittings out in the garage, lol. I know I don't have any BSPP ones though. Hmm.

I love the industrial look of them. We use them at my work for gasoline additive blending, they just aren't bspp. Yes you would have to do alot of assembly outside the case but you would have a good degree of safety. I worry about using push in style and them accidentally getting pulled out.

maybe I missed it in the thread, but if you do choose to go this option (pipes) if you need to change parts out at a later date once the system is done and filled, does this make it much harder to work on?
I'm just thinking that you can drain the system but really can you get enough of it out to not drip all over each part when removing the pipes? From what I've seen regular tubing lends itself to kind of taking a block off for example without untubing or emptying the system.
I realize pipes may add some different aspects ( like full disassembly to get at some parts), I'm just concerned that it would be a huge mess that may ruin system parts during removal because of left over water that stays in the pipes easier than in tubing?
(may be a silly line of questions, but honestly don't know the answer) So thanks for any input from the experienced water cooling folks biggrin.gif

Yes unfortunately you would have to remove the piping that goes to a specific part to get it out of the case. My "black" build has no drain at all but its tygon tubing so I can pull the reservoir out some what and suck out water with a turkey baster. biggrin.gif

I have seen people make some very cool drains with copper tubing and valve. the other option would be fitting extensions which IMO looks badass. I'd love to do an entire loop with fitting extensions but the $$$$. yikes.

bit off topic, but with these watercooling setups could you not just put the radiator outside your window or something in window?

Would that make temps like really low?

you could put a radiator outside however it probably will cause condensation on your tubing inside your case because of the temperature difference and dew point. phase change or LN2 will bring temps way down like subzero. I'm very happy with my temps...



Ambient is 70 degrees F/ 21 Celsius.

I wouldn't worry about pipes being able to be pulled out,they can take your body weight if installed correctly in push fit.
Proper olive type compressions need the olives replaced with every fitment and a sealing compound.

Sealant? news to me. no sealant on Parker A LOK's or swagelok compressions. also on these fittings you can remove the tubing and put it back together without replacing anything. I'm sure you are right on how strong the push in style is but I myself would feel better with this style of fitting. I'm paranoid. biggrin.gif

They don't have BSPP, you sure about that? And I wouldn't be worried about them coming out at all. lol. Hard to accidently push and hold down the fitting and pull on the pipe evenly. They are very strong.

Agreed...the need of sealant kind of depends on the internals and threading but it can certainly help. One big reason I went with the fittings I did. Also depends on the tubing you use (the strength of push locks, not the need of sealant, lol).

Unless you add or change a component, lol.

Assuming you can get them in BSPP instead of BSPT? Not that it's a huge deal but would be nice. And contact the engineers for fluids, lol.

They look nice though, have a feeling they're probably expensive, just because most Italian stuff is, haha.

They have them as parallel and taper threads,you have to specify the thread on purchase.
