My System Specs

But like I said in chat the other day, the easiest way to do without a drain or T is to tip the case on it's front (on something soft to avoid scratching). The res becomes the lowest part of the loop, and you drain through the fill port.
Cool!!!! That's exactly the kind of hands-on experience I was looking for. :)

I understand the concerns about leaks and am willing to take that risk. :)
