Draining the loop

Going to redo my bends and also new GPU will not be watercooled. I have a drain valve bottom right and it is dreadfully slow at draining. Apparently I need a vent. Where would be the best place for a vent ?

I don't see the issue here, Just connect your line to your drain with the case standing normally and then open the cap or the fill port.

I open the res and drain but it is still very slow and doesn't get anything...... gravity is confusing. Just noticed since I uploaded this from my phone it needs to be rotated 90 degrees clockwise

Try removing the fill port cap entirely, don't just unscrew it a bit.

You need to allow for air to take the place of the water. Its often best to open a port at the very top of the loop, then opening your drain valve and air will then be allowed to draw in to replace the water as the water exits. Your Fill Port will work for this, you need to open it all the way and crack your drain port completely. You are still going to have water stuck in places where the block or rad's outlet/inlet is above the water, in these cases you need to tip your case to move the water above a port on that component so that it will flow into your res or drain valve and flow out.

You can also connect a tube to the fill port and blow, however you should probably flush if you do this. Once you get as much water out as you can, start taking off tubes and blocks carefully, and emptying each component/tube one at a time until fully disassembled. Remember as long as you keep the water level below the outlet/inlet port, it will not flow out when disconnecting your tubing, use gravity to your advantage to keep your components dry as you disassemble. Good Luck!

My fill port is basically the res. I ordered a a T to put in line at the top so it should be easy from now on. I guess my last water cooling system was dumb luck, it would drain in about 15 seconds, my res did sit a lot higher in that one though.

Hi,
Clogged cpu block can cause bad draining

To say where exactly you'd have to post an image of your loop
But i can say a T valve would have to be piped to the highest point of the loop
Some I've seen go through the top of the case but not going to the reservoir like a fill port it doesn't work well.

Picture is first post, need to rotate 90 degree. I plan to put the T on either radiator inlet or outlet. The CPU and GPU block were just recently cleaned so no build up on those, just piss poor loop design on my part.
