My System Specs

Default

While it's nice to be able to put a port at the lowest possible point to drain the loop you almost never get all the water out of the loop without tipping and turning and bobbing. If it's a major concern for you add a couple quick disconnects on the inlet and outlet of the rad. Makes it easy to remove to blow out with very little leakage. Then you can find another low point to drain off the cpu, vid, pump and most of the resi.

I put my drain port on the second video card and every time I drain it theres always water somewhere in the loop. Better to point that rad upwards or getting all the air out is a huge pain the ass.... basic plumbing man. The last thing you want is a vapour lock when your not around.
