How to drain RS240, just cooling cpu?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
This question has probably been asked a lot, but how do I drain my RS240 kit? I didn't make a drain tube and it's connected from the reservoir to the radiator to the cpu block, back to the reservoir. How should I drain it without getting water all over my computer parts? Also, How do you pull those tubes off, those suckers are on really tight?

Thanks.

Bring it near the sink and then cut the tubing near the barb.

So I have to disassemble the radiator and the res and bring it to the sink basically? Wish there was an easier was lol.

Wait. What?
I just brought my whole case to the sink, cut the tube and let it drain.
I have done this twice already. It's not that bad.

Ohh alright, I see what you're saying. I'll give it a go. I'm going to siphon as much as i can out of the res first than I'll cut it and drain the rest. Thank you!

His case is a CM Storm Sniper - not a case you easily carry to the sink. Not the heaviest thing on earth but it dances as pretty as an A-10 Warthog does aerial stunts

To the OP - yes disassemble for now. My advice would be to buy a quick disconnect - with one extra male or female piece. this way you can disconnect your loop at your lowest point. with the spare male or female piece - you can have that connected to a long tube and connect to your loop so as to drain it out into a bucket or something simpler.
