1st Question: If I have a CPU and GPU in SLI 2 way (which is what I'm going for), what would I need to do to upgrade both parts?
2nd Question: (kinda following question 1) How do I drain the loop to clean it?
3rd Question: How do I know when I would need to clean the loop, are there any signs to look for?
4th Question: Even if I don't spot out any signs telling me that I should clean the loop, what would be a recommended time frame, that I should know of to continuously empty my loop and put fresh coolant? .... Every 3 months? Every 6 Months? Every Year? Every 2 Years? and/ or whenever I install a new part?
5th Question: How do I fill up the loop? (for when I first put it together)
6th Question: Is there a certain time frame I should know of that you would recommend me to tighten up my fittings? ...Every 3 Months? Every 6 Months? Every Year? Every 2 Years? or whenever I install a new part?
7th Question: Whats the best and most reliable/most trusted website with quality products to buy from?
Thanks for the help, and sorry for all the questions
1. Not sure what ya mean by "upgrade" ? ... if it means ya wanna replace the CPU and GPU with newer versions.... CPU block will likely be OK unless ya chnaging MoBos and then all is out the window....GPU block is more iffy.... some 680 blocks fit 780..... not likely to hold for 880 or whatever they call it.
2. Lets see if I can do a Pic...reservoir will have at least 3 ports .... one for Pump feed, one for return .... last one, pipe as follows with a tee in the line:
Male Quik Disconnect
You then take a female quik disconnect (both parts in list above) w/ 3 feet of tubing.... snap 2gether and drain
4. There's a lot of anecdotal wisdom around on the topic and of course it depends on what ya put in it. Distilled water will last longest (years ?) .... Id drain and check something like Mayems pastel coolant after 6 months. their Aurora coolant is supposed to just be for shows and you'll see loads of experts telling people they are idiots for using it cause its gonna gunk up everything. And yet, others have had in systems for months (8-9 in link below) and even left system off for 5 weeks while on vacation with no ill effects
