Unless your thinking of it differently than I am, its the other way around. Water comes OUT from the pump where you see the metal fitting. The threaded acrylic hole is your inlet of water back into the reservoir.

Rad direction does not matter.

no, the part where the pump is shoots the water out.
i suggest you read up a bit more in here before putting it together.
you have to go through some procedures to ensure smooth running.

Here, read through this.
Use one of these techniques to flush your setup and get the flux out of the rad before even thinking of running it

Highly recommended you follow something like this to clean to loop/rad/blocks before you assemble. I personally used boiled a mix of very hot distilled water and 90% alcohol to clean and flush everything beforehand and have not had any issues with my water cooling since it first installed it with the stock pump over 6 months ago.

DOH!
my bad, i knew i recognized your name.
yea you had it backwards, the water shoots from the part where it's connected to the pump (right side) and comes in from the bottom (left)
for the radiator, almost all of them are two way (including yours).
the block should not matter as well, i had a rasa kit about 2 years ago (still have the block) and the one it came with was two-way.
I don't know what they may have changed on the block so you may want to see if it has labels or check the manual so you don't run in something disaterous.

lol, its kool . Yeah the block does have an inlet and an outlet. The pump/res inlet and outlet makes sense lol, dont know why i said the opposite.

OFF TOPIC: As for the cleaning, would you recommend taking the block apart or not? Just curious as you have used a RASA kit. Also i have 99.9% ISOPROPANOL. Should i use that or vinegar (white distilled)? I have both. I know i wouldnt need to use it on the block or fittings but maybe the rad? I was going to do the vinegar and boiled water flush but now im not sure if i should replace the vinegar with ISOPROPANOL.

yea the ispropanol should be fine, i use Everclear so kinda the same thing . And as to your block, you do not need to take it apart yet. Sometime down the road it would be a good idea but the most that will be in there is some metal shavings that can be rinsed out with regular distilled water.

Definately use ispropanol/vinegar (i like the isopropanol better)that stuff on the rad. Throw that in the rad, put your thumb over both holes and shake the crap out of it for a few minutes. Then drain that and drop some boiling water into it, and then a quick rinse with distilled water to ensure all that crap got out.

Ok so just soak the block and fittings in distilled water.

You just pour ISOPROPANOL in the rad on its own and not in a mix of boiling water like the vinegar?
