two T-lines, one for filling and another for draining.. one is on top of case and the other at the bottom for easy draining.

How would you plan on using the T line to drain? If i do go water cooling in my future ide go with the T line & fillport so i dont have to store water in a reservoir.

The one I have it setup is I use two Tlines..

 

first Tline goes right before the Pump inlet then the Tline point upwards for the Drainport,.. 4 inches away from the first Tline that connects to my Drainport on top of chassis is my second Tline that point downwards and connects to a Drainport on the bottom of the chassis, this is my way of draining the circuit.

 

TOP FILL PORT

BOTTOM DRAIN PORT

so circuit goes like..

 

 

rad -> tline -> tline -> pump -> cpu -> rad

 

"first tline is drain port while second is the fill port"

 

likewhoa.

I have never used water cooling, or experimented with it... but are the fillports / drainports failsafe? In a way they automatically close or lock so no water can come out but things can only come in?

 

Hows it work?

I think there's a little plug that goes over the tube so that all the water doesn't just spill out.
