I'm going to write a step-by-step in what I do so you don't make a mistake on your end. I need a few minutes

Wait you said attach a hose to a fitting where is not being used in the GPU, I thought the GPU only had two fittings, one INLET and the other OUTLET, there is another place in the GPU block I can attach? And about connecting a hose into one of the CPU fitting or rad is the same process of the GPU? Just blow? But if I disconnect one side, the other side will be opened, oh this thing confuses me a lot to think, I think I understood the GPU part (if there is another place to connect a hose besides the two fittings IN and OUT) but the rad and CPU is confusing me.

I think I figured out how to flush the rest of the fluid, if I detach where I marked to ''cut'' and blow in that direction, would result the fuild to go out in the INLET port (drain port) of the pump/res, right? So now I just need to figure about the GPU, you said there is other holes to connect fitting in the block?

1. Paper towels around every fitting and around the res
2. Use a fitting on a tube length, attach that fitting to the drain port, make sure it's long enough to travel downwards to a large pot, tub etc
3. open the drain port
4. open top port of the res to let pressure start pushing fluid out

5. wait a while, the fluid will come out, but might take a bit due to air introduced. It may seem like it's done, but shake the tower a little and more may come out. Keep this going until you see most of the gpu block empty. Sometimes blowing into the top rad port helps.

6. If you have a gpu in the loop that is mounted horizontally (normal case), you can unscrew one of the top ports that's unused. keep paper towels in hand in case fluid wants to escape. At this point there's no pressure in the loop, so you should be fine. If it seems that the fluid remains idle, this is when I attach another fitting to that gpu port with a tube length attached to it.
7. Close the res top port. The only open ports should be from the drain and your new tube length to your gpu block. Any other open ports will spit the fluid out (bad news).

8. Start to blow into that tube length, or use a datavac blower. Remember to keep your vessel that's collecting the fluid far and low enough that it doesn't spit fluid on your computer or other things. I like using a big sauce pot with a strainer, I feed the tube through a strainer hole to keep it from moving around when pressure comes through.

9. continue doing this until you see enough drained from your card, and your cpu block is drained below the ports.
10. now you can remove tubing from your gpus, plug those ports with stop fittings, unscrew from rad and remove your gpu from the system, remember there may be fluid dripping from the rads if you didn't blow for long enough. Keep paper towels ready.

11. Now you can start draining your cpu and rads. attach that blower tube to the rad or cpu, whatever is the next connection from your gpu inlet. Then repeat

12. this can be different in your case depending on your build, but I think this may help you understand how to do it without much mess.

A gpu block will have 4 ports. two will be in use, but there are 4 for various configs.

This is my config right now, for my purpose, I would open that top unused port. Hope this isn't confusing.

Thank you so much for putting effort to explain to me how to drain the fluid, I understand 100% now, I'm thinking in doing a dual rad setup instead of just one 360mm 60mm thickness on top in the Lian Li Dynamic O11, now I will search the web to see how would be the connections using the pump/res in the same position I showed you in the image, the case support another rad on the side of the motherboard (not in the front, in the right side of it), so I thought dual 360mm 45mm thickness and using flex tube.

No problem, it's not a definite way to do it, but the least painful for me. Just start from the bottom and work your way up by section, closing off as you go.

Alright, so just sorting everything out, I will need two M-M Extenders for connecting between res (inlet) port and the T-Splitter and one for the T-Splitter and the Ball Valve (drain port), two of these will be good?

https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-af-exte...m-m-g1-4-black

So now I'm wondering if I use angled fittings, like 45º or 90º do I need anything else to plug them? I mean, in this picture here I can see he used a 90º angled but seems he used another fittings in the GPU waterblock port, what type of connection is that?

The 90° is this: https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-af-angled-90-g1-4-nickel

Edit.: Would that be this one?

https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-af-extender-6mm-m-m-nickel

M-M extender?

I think I misunderstood, the angled fitting is connected through the male port to the GPU waterblock (female) and then the head of the fitting (female) is connected normally through the compression fitting? So no need for extender?
