As others have said, you need pretty decent flow to get everything out of the system.

Do you have an extra psu? Any will do. You can jump it with a paper clip, that's what I do. Or use your current psu but disconnect everything but the pump, still jump it with a paper clip though.

post #13074 of 15394
Hi everyone, decided to go for a custom loop for the first time and I have a few questions. Will be using Mayhems pastel uv white with Mayhems clear flexible tubing. Is it a good choice? Am I gonna get discoloration/cloudiness on my hose any soon from using pastel white coolant?
I got some second hand EK rad which is full of some purple thick coolant leftovers





Is it possible to clean it at all? I've read about using diluted vinegar and boiled water, will it work?
Also, how do I prepare my blocks(which are brand new)? Are they supoosed to be ready to use or do I need to clean them too?
Finally, once I got it all clean should I use distilled water first for a leak test and bleeding and then, after a day change it to Mayhems pastel coolant?
Thx for help

I really liked mayhem's tubing and the pastel is beautiful! If everything is cleaned properly beforehand, and changed out at least annually, you shouldn't have any issues with discoloration. I believe it is recommended to use Mayhem's Blitz to clean your system before using it, I'm not super knowledgeable about blitz but I know there are 2 parts. I'm not sure if you should use one part or both in this case to be honest so I'd search this thread if no one else responds, because I know it's been discussed regularly. (there is a "search this thread" button up top, VERY helpful for a massive thread like this)

A dirty rad like that, I'd probably try and clean it with hot (maybe not boiling) water and then blitz it, because that looks like a mess haha

I think it helps to use colored coolant for leak testing since it makes leaks a lot more visible. I had a very, very slow weeping from one of my fittings on my rebuild last week and I didn't notice until I put my Aurora in a day later. It left about half of a drop of liquid every day for a few days until I fixed it, and I had no idea, even after 24+ hours of leak testing with distilled water. I suppose it might be a good idea to do a quick leak test with water to make sure that you've got no obvious issues though.

I hope something there is helpful! wink.gif

Pretty good looking, but looks like there is a lot of air in the lines coming from the CPU.
