Yeah the fitting list was exact IIRC. For the drain valve, I'd use a M-M rotary to a 3/4-way splitter fitting. Off the spiltter, I would connect another M-M rotary to a ball valve with a plug on the end of it. Then from there, I'd use whatever fitting you need to make your tube routing doable, and another plug on the 4th hole if you using a 4-way fitting.thanks for the feedback, ill just stick with the super slim xspc on the bottom and grab a nemesis 30mm on the side. was that fitting guide you gave that last guy who asked accurate? im getting ready to put a order in, happy you mentioned the drain idea. so i should just get a EK-AF T-Splitter 3f? they have the four female and the 3 version . i kinda wish they had a two also but oh well. do i just put a cap on the other one that i don't use? and would you just get a super small male-male adapter to attach the ball valve? or would you put a short amount of tubing? i was thinking if i do this maybe get a rotary extender just in case i need to spin the valve if i don't attach it with bit of tubing. let me know if im not making sense. lol
i still haven't heard back about the NEXT gpu water block dimensions yet but i'm hopeful about it. i feel like i'm pretty limited on choices by the way you put it which surprises me. if you have any ideas of full cover blocks that you think would work let me know.
so with the pwm pump, do i just plug it into the pwm fan header on the mobo? im pretty sure we are going to be using the same motherboard. you have the asrock z390 phantom gaming right? ill totally look into that program, 19 bucks for 3 years isnt bad for something that allows me to control everything without being in the bios. and you mentioned grabbing a temperature sensor? where do you plug that into?
Keep the valve closed, then when it comes to draining the loop all you should need to do is remove the plug and replace it with a standard G1/4 soft tube fitting with some tubing on it. Tilt the entire case on it's front and hang the tube in a bucket, open the valve fitting and drain. Should be much more effective than draining from the reservoir like my loop is set up, requires a lot of "creative thinking".
PWM pump straight into the pump header on the motherboard, yeah. I run the two side fans on the CPU header with a Y-splitter, and the bottom two fans on the the other fan header also via Y-splitter. That allows me to configure their speeds in Argus Monitor in pairs, so both side rad fans can be at 50% while both slim fans on the bottom can stay at 25%, for example.
The temp probe, I'm actually not sure where I'd put it. I didn't get that far into looking into one to decide where would be the best part of the loop to put it in. I'd probably go with the quick and easy route and just plug it in the bottom of the reservoir since I've alreadyt got cables going from that into the case.
