When you run the distilled water in your loop, make sure it's not in your case. When the loop is not in your case, draining it is very easy, by moving your parts around.

but wouldn'T that imply mounting everything in the case, build the loop (so that the tubing is ok) un screw everything take all parts with the tubes as a whole out, test it, drain it, mount again everything as a whole inside the case, and fill with coolant?

I mean, if the test is supposed to check for leaks, it doesnt make sense to test outside, unmount the loop and rebuild...

Gapsna, I can only give you suggestions. You have to do it your way. This is your build. Think it over, look at what you want to do and plan accordingly. smile.gif
You got this. thumb.gif

hahaha I was thinking I might be overthinking this XD

at the moment I'm trying to figure out an issue with the jet plate of the cpu block.

With everything, remember KIS (Keep it simple). wink.gif

I'm falling in love!! I'll leave it like this and tomorrow I will build the loop, test it with destilled water for a couple of hours and then drain, coolant, run, and do the connections and boot

so far I have not done much advance because of two issues:

1. I broke one o-ring from a fitting and didnt have a replacement so now I need to wait probably till next week until a new one arrives.

2. Tube vending is really really hard!!! it can go too bad, too fast! noy I have a bunch of bended/wrapped tubes frown.gif

only one of the tubes I'm keeping looks nicely bended

Well, now that I have to wait until wednesday when the new tubes arrive (T_T) I decided to connect the mobo and gpu to run a boot test. This since the 14 days I have to return parts to the store are almost over so I wanted to check the most important stuff.

Good news, MoBo, RAM, CPU and GPU seem to work perfectly. Or at least it booted and recognized everything.



(sorry for the flash)
I turned it off immediately after the picture to avoid damage.

One question, I did have something connected to CPU_FAN, I connected a PWM Fan splitter from EK and the three PWM Silent Wings 3 RAD fans to i assume the error is due to the three PWM feedbacks being shot-circuited in the splitter (when I got it, I thought it would do something like the fan hub from the case that send the feedback only from one fan).
Edit: the problem seems to be that those are not the original fan from the intel cooler which is expected by the MoBo. The solution should be to lower the minimum limit of the cpu_fan or to tell the mobo to ignore that warning.


This is how it looks at the moment, two tubes missing from GPU to the Rad and from the RAD to the CPU. (At the outlet of the rad I placed a temp sensor). I kind of feel funny about the drain port position, I had to put it facing downwards or the case wouldn't close, but it kind of doesnt look that good. (the T splitter has an EK shiny logo)
