Hey guys i was wondering if anyone had any good ideas on how to drain the loops in my pc, my system is the corsair 800d with full liquid cooling on the cpu and sli graphics card, also got the xspc dual bay, looking at it just seems like it will be a pain, i wish i would have thought to have DS install some drain valves in the bottom

I had them install fill valves on top of case from Danger Dan, 3 of them for 3 reservoirs, and 3 drain valves.You can see pictures of it on Computer Build of the Month.To answer your question I would call DS and see  how they do it the easiest and best way.

Are you trying to make changes to the cooling system which would cause the fluid to come out? Draining the system and adding fluid again would take more time than doing the following:
 
1. Place a clear plastic around your components and the barb you want to disconnect.
2. Place some paper towels around the barbs you are going to open.
3. After you disconnect the barbs, place a cork or something similar and plug the holes.
4. Conduct your changes.
5. Place everything back in
6. Add additional fluid (we use Feser One clear usually).

   this would be for when I need to drain and clean it out, I will post pics if that will help.

Speaking of this, which coolant is used in the CRYO-Tec cooling systems? Does the Feser One have a low enough freeze point to be used with this? Just wondering for when I eventually have to change my coolant on the Aventum.
