Remove a WC system ?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I want to take apart my PC and run some cable management. I was wondering if possible, what the easiest way to remove my WC system would be?

I'm runing "Big Water" Kandalf LCS

I just remove the tube next to the pump first. Most of the water will flow down from there.

That's typically what you do when you go to remove the LCS. You might have luck just removing the CPU block from the mobo and moving all the tubing out of your way.

the easiest way would be to intall a drain tube when all the fluid is out. if ur tubing is long enough take tubig off from the rad or any lowest point of the loop gravity will take care of the rest.

Pull off the tube over a bucket if you have room.

draining could get messy, drain as much as you can from the reservoir using a bucket then just start cutting the tubing off
