Yeah a drain-line is nice...I cut mine into the lowest line with about a foot of tubing on it and topped it with a brass Fil-Port...Works great...I'll leave a pic it's hanging off my rad-box...Makes flushing and refills very easy...I wouldn't have a loop with out a drain anymore...DD has some brass plugs that would work great to cap one off to..
Brass Tubing Plugs
Thanks for the continued advice.
Unfortunately, my desk is too shallow to make use of a rad box. It's a corner desk - on the right side I have a full tower with an internal quad rad, the left side has an external dual rad standing on the desk. The system being discussed here is just off the left side of the desk, sitting on top of another case. A picture would really be worth 1000 words here, but it's late.
Anyway, the only real place I can put the rad is on top of the case, so I'm pretty much stuck with that. I just can't get myself to drill holes in a Lian Li anyway. With my luck, I'd end up mangling it.
I'll definitely have to take a look at using a fillport as a drain plug. I wouldn't mind working those into my other systems next time I drain them as well.

Hrm...I have a MCR220 cooling an E6600, and it does a great job. The more I play with C2Ds, the more I realize that it just a very sweet CPU (low voltage/low temp). I don't think I can justify dishing out the cash for a GTX, but I can definitely see a GTS in my future.
