sorry if the pic was confusing, I tried to make it not confusing lol. Well I dont knw what kind of fittings mine are, but they were pretty tight just yesterday. Ill try clamping them.

Same thing happened to me with the kit. I accidentally wiggled the pump power connector out of place. Just make sure the tube is on securely, tighten up the hose clamps, and make sure the barbs are screwed in all the way, although that's not really a usual problem.
Unless the tube has a hole in it, there's only 2 places for the water to leak from. The block (which would mean it's faulty; an O-ring out of place or something) or the barb/tube assembly (user-error or faulty tube).
Double Check.

Make sure you have protection against important components (a towel or something) and have a container for the liquid to pour into. Just pull off the tube and let it pour into the container until the reservoir is empty.

Also, for quick drainage, drain with the tube that comes from the reservoir port of the bay res/pump combo. If the water goes downhill, it'll drain faster.

That is why I made my tubes long enough to be able to pull the res out and turn it over to pour out the water, turn it back over, turn the pump on and keep doing it tell all the water is out, don't run the pump without water of course.

You can get those plastic barb clamps at ACE hardware or any other local hardware

k thanks for your help, I drained the system with a syringe for the first little bit until the res was drained, and then poured the rest from the tube. I cut about a... wow I dont dont imperial very well do I lol maybe 6 or 7 cm of both the in and out tubes, reattached them, and put a plastic clamp on each. happy to report that although there are plenty of air bubbles to get out of the loop, my temps are back to 35C @ 4ghz 1.4v, and there are no more leaks when I move or squeeze the tube. Now I'll have to go through all this again next week when I upgrade from my i7 920 to a 950 lol
A little off topic here - how much do you think a q6600 2gb ram 250gb sata hdd system should go for

I had this happen i thk what happens is some water gets traped outside the barb and the tubing you squeez it a few times all of it goes away least in my case then it wouldnt do it anymore.

your probably right, but now that I got clamps on, I dont think any more fluid will go outside the barb
