That's good to hear that you haven't had any issues. If I decide to go with the Masterkleer, I will probably keep it until the advanced is available in the UK, then switch for that.

I won't be clocking my CPU that much further, probably to 4.5ish or depending on temps and I believe I have a very poor OCing card. That still needs to be confirmed though. I could afford more stuff but this is going to be my first loop and I didn't want to go crazy with it so I think i'll go with what I have right now and then I can always expand in the future smile.gif

Does anyone have any suggestions on what could come in handy should I need to drain the loop? Connections, fittings or just the general method of doing so without causing a huge spillage? A thread on the topic would be great if anyone has a link?

You can use a T-Line or you can get a drain valve like the one i put in my loop. I love this thing, i was able to empty out my loop in about 2 minutes with this thing. I thought the first time I was going use it that water was going to pour out as soon as I loosened the cap. I was extra cautious about not spilling any water so i put an entire roll of paper towels underneath plus a bowl.


NOT NEEDED! there was only 1 drop of water that came out of the valve until i let the air in by loosing another valve. SIMPLE AND EASY! what more can you ask for. Just put this on the lowest part of your loop and your good!

Damn, it's out of stock on my site (based in the UK).

So, just to be clear, I would just connect a compression fitting to both ends and just carry on my loop as usual. Then when it's time to drain, just release the central spout? Seems simple, just wanted to be sure!

So maybe its ok? lol

Interesting, powder coating varies greatly between powder coating companies. Question is are there members out there that have used vinegar with their powder coated fittings with no problems?

You'll want to have the drain valve at the most lowest point of your loop. But thats about it you just release the central spout and then once you get a bottle or something to collect the liquid you can release one of the side valves. And then once it starts to slow down. grab one of the ends of the loop and blow into it until you get all the fluid out. there are many other sites that sell them. but these work better then the T-lines because of that reason, it wont just start to pour out when you open one of the valves. Hope this helps!



I originally had the valve here and then i re did my loop to make it lower. It still worked when it was here i just had to blow in it more. not a big deal. but its definitely a lifesaver. thumb.gif

Sweet, thanks for the information. It's much appreciated.

I'm using the spare outlet port on my pump as a drain line right now. But before I did that I was using a t-block with about a foot of tubing with a threaded plug barb and it worked fine. That's going to be how I drain when I rebuild my loop in my new case when it's done too

Just to double check and to put my mind at ease before I make the order, this block will fit my card right? I have the signature edition of the 680 and I know it has slightly different power connections.
