Intel Planning Pre-Nehalem Price Cuts
Prior to the release of Nehalem we could be seeing some serious price-cuts on current Core 2-based products. According to our source, Intel are reportedly looking to reduce prices in the third quarter of this year as well as introduce few more CPUs just to firm-up the low and mid-range.
“The Core 2 Quad 9450, currently priced at US$316, will be phased out of the market to be replaced by the Core 2 Quad 9400 at 2.66GHz and a price of US$266. The Core 2 Quad Q9300 and Q6700 will both be phased out at the same time too, leaving the Q6600 as the only 65nm quad-core CPU left in Intel's lineup, and which will drop from US$224 to US$203.

For dual-core CPUs, Intel will launch the Core 2 Duo E8600 at 3.33GHz and US$266, and will phase out the Core 2 Duo E8300. The company will also drop pricing for the Core 2 Duo E8500 and E8400 from US$266 and US$183 to US$183 and US$163, respectively.

Intel will also add the Core 2 Duo E7300 at 2.66GHz and US$133 to its entry-level line and to drop the price of its Core 2 Duo E7200 from US$133 to US$113.”
It certainly looks like the prelude to a strong launch for Nahalem...

I am no water cooling expert, but you drain the loop at the lowest point.

Some people prefer to put a T-Line in to drain their system, saves the hassle of dismantling alot of parts.

Got a pic of how your system is laid out.. i can give you a hand.

As said above drain it from the lowest point.. so, if your pump is at the bottom, Just make sure your pump is outside the case and no power is going through the components, then remove one of the hoses and drain it.
