Also 24 hrs leak test is 24 hrs you cant use your PC. Guess there are no "loopholes" when it comes to watercooling ( get it ? )
also another question, is a WC'ed rig easy to move around, say for LAN parties, or would you have to empty the entire system and then refill it after you had moved it ?
CPU only loops are very common and a good idea if you change video cards a lot.
Take a look at my worklog and you will see why it would not be possible, my loop consists of 4 internal radiators, 3 GPU full cover blocks, a Mobo full cover block, a CPU block, a liquid fusion res, a pump, and a fill line. My tubing runs throughout the case, through panels of my case, and the SLI connector I have makes it so the loop must be filled with the block installed on the cards.
also, the mobo block would be near impossible to install on the mobo with tubing already connecting it to other components...
and no, no shortcuts for me with leak testing, I have had to many leaks when installing new gear to be OK with less.
as for lans, I do take classy to lans, but not very often because she is so big and heavy. when I do though, I do not do anything special, no need to drain the loop or anything. (that would be a terrible pain)
