My System Specs


Maybe I'm not explaining my loop well enough.......

top rad,5 1/4 bay res/pump combo, cpu block, vga block.

As it stands, the lowest point in my loop is the bottom port(s) of the VGA block (designed for SLI) and I can open the fill port on the res to provide open air to ease the flow. I'm not talking about running a pump to drain it, and the VGA is going to be feeding the res so in all honesty, the opposite side of that fitting is the same as the lowest port of the res only lower.

Now onto the question I'm wondering about.... on a 4 port VGA block without sli, will having a 6" tube on one of the rear ports (for SLI and thus would normally just be plugged) with a plug and/or draincock (closed except for draining loop) affect the normal flow of the VGA block?
