You just pour ISOPROPANOL in the rad on its own and not in a mix of boiling water like the vinegar?
personaly i think it works much better because it's more concentrated (kind of like adding water to cleaning supplies...they aren't as strong with more water)
you can do both if you feel like it.

Iso on its own
boiled water/iso
rinse with distilled water

either way works though, as long as you see all the crap coming out then your good.

just a note: if you want to make sure you cleaned it all the way, run the pump just through the rad outside of your pc. if anything collects in your res then you need to keep cleaning it.

Ok thanks . People have suggested connecting a tube to a tap and running hot tap water through it to see if its clean? Then do the ISO and distilled water flush.

yea that could works well. i'm just scared of tap water myself because of the hard minerals but if you are going to flush one more time with iso and distilled that should be fine.

Don't close the loop while flushing. I wouldn't risk it for the pump.

Get a bucket (white preferable and non see though, and clean), you need 3 peices of tube, your pump and a gallon of distilled.

Attache pump to rad, one tube in the gallon of distilled and the other tube from the rad to the white bucket. If you see residues (easy to see) in the white bucket when you're finished pumping through the gallon, repeat.

Edit: This step is for AFTER you rinsed with hot water and what ever solution you chose.

i guess that would be better but i've built quite a few systems and never had anything mess up the pump when doing my method. Though i will say i am very exstensive when cleaning out my radiators. i usually run through the process 3 or so times before hooking it up to my pump.

Ditto, I ran 10 gallons of boiled tap and vinigar, then 8 gallons of pure distilled.

I had quite a big bucket... =P
