I would like to add a VGA and HDD cooler to my watercooling system. I was just wondering what the safest method is to get the water out of the system so I can add the two coolers? Maybe somebody already did this on system which is entirely build in the towercase.

Remove all the computer components first. Cut one of the hoses and drain the water out. Set back in place your mobo, video and HD. Measure the hose lengths you need. Remove the computer components again. Connect all the water blocks. refill the system run the system with out anything in it so you can check for leaks. (If you connect pin 4 and pin 6 on your pover supply (they are black and green) the power supply will run with out the mobo) I would run it for 5 to 10 min. Reinstall all components. Tada. Take your time. Good luck. Take care. If you want a manual to read go to and download the manual for the 601 case. You will be able to see pics if that helps.

Hang in there. It can only get better!
