You can technically use the opposite side of a GPU block as a point for draining as I've done here:
In most normal setups, you would block off two of the four open ports on a GPU block. I am using one of the bottom sides connected to a 45 degree rotary angle adapter
, into a male-male rotary adapter
, into a ball-valve
, and then a G1/4" stop plug
I just swivel the whole thing toward the outside, unscrew the stop plug, attach a barb to the valve, connect a hose to the barb (and feed it to a collection container), open the reservoir fillport (to allow air in) and open the ball valve and watch about 750mL of water drain out. It's awesome. A little overkill, but I like it and works quite well. The last bit of water in the res and radiator require a some case tilting but it gets almost all of the water out of the system quickly.Edited by liquoredonlife - 4/2/11 at 12:21am
