Help for my custom watercooling loop (Suggestions, Recommendations etc.)

Hello community,
I am planning on building a custom watercooling loop and I never did one yet.

So I need some help. Here is the list of components/parts I wanna use:

http://listmoz.com/view/SW39d5x60fsx89Hqjs

1. For draining the loop I want to make an extra outlet (parts of it in the list)
How should I connect the Y-splitter to the ball valve, I dont get which fitting or part I have to use for this.

2. Do you have any Suggetstions/recommendations for the parts? Because, how I said, I'm a beginner and I dont know if this is good :D

3. As for CPU block, I will use the one of the list probably, but I am actually still waiting for an Asus Aura compatible block, and I have no idea when there will be one available

Thanks a lot !

  1. 1. There was a pretty sweet spigot type thing on Frozen's website (I'm not home or I would take a picture.) It is pretty awesome looking. A little steampunk but fits my build nicely.

    2. You are going to want to measure the case and distance on the parts and literally draw out your whole loop with measurements on a piece of paper (or modeling software or w\e) before buying everything. I do not use many one way valves in my loops but I know people who do. I usually stick to 2 so if I have to remove my GPU or CPU I do not have to drain the whole thing. I use mostly EK and Koolance parts exclusively. Some of my connectors are random companies that were picked up on the fly to modify the loop over time.

    3. Most CPU blocks will get the job done no problem. GPU block is slightly more important.

    Yes, I am gonna do that and I just want to wait for an Asus Aura CPU Block because I am building an entire asus Aura rig

  4. You can opt for EK AF X splitter instead Y. It is G1/4 thread doesn't matter what size of ID/OD fittings you use, they're G1/4, best spot of drain is at top's inlet for most build, but you can get be more creative according to your case orientation(vert or horz).
  5. You also need heat gun and PETG bending kit, the fittings ID = tube OD i.e 12mm OD PETG with 12mm ID fitting (EK HD Adapter CSQ 10-12mm).
