I do intend to fit the loop in first to get all the measurements for the tubing. Then detach the system so I can test for leaks else where from the desktop. I'll be testing it with diluted water. Will that be sufficient for flushing it?
If you mean distilled water then yeah, that's fine. Just make sure you have a look through some threads here, the secret to water cooling is research and doing it properly the first time round.
