ALWAYS FLUSH YOUR RAD!! Despite what they say always flush it another 2-4 times. You will get bits floating and when/if it goes Into Your pump you can say goodbye to it.

I normally just use boiling hot water, splash it around vigorously let it sit for a short while then flush.. repeat another few times till nothing comes out then flush again a few times with just normal distilled water. In saying that though, i do it for peace of mind and i've had a EK rad that still had little shavings inside it so this is why i stick to doing it thumb.gif

To add to what he said even if the rads are factory flushed particles can become dislodged during shipping and that is why it is good to always flush your rad

James,
congratulations for your build!

I have few questions to you if you don't mind as a total newbie trying to complete items to build my first watercooled computer based on 900D:

1. Did you consider to plug the fans directly to your MB via for example:
http://www.swiftech.com/8-waypwmsplitter.aspx
or

couple of: http://www.akasa.com.tw/update.php?tpl=product/product.detail.tpl&no=181&type=Cables&type_sub=Fan%20Cable%20Adapters&model=AK-CBFA03-45
since rampage 4 extreme has 8 fan 4 pin plugs - - two for Processor three chassis fans, and three ext chasis fans (page 2-37 of the manual). All of them are 12W, 1A.

By the way - how do you bypass an error mesage that processor cooler/fan is not present?

2. In your cooling spec you wrote that you use Corsair SP 120x 20 fans
I can only find SP120x25 - is it correct?
If so, you use a quiet or high performance version? the best would be, if you can share SK# CO-9050??-WW redface.gif

3. U use EK XT 480 blocks which are 47 mm thick, can you pls let me know if XTX version which is 67 mm will fit ? (I am still waiting for my 900d)

4. Can you please precisely describe (it is hard to see on the pictures) what fittings (and amount) you use on MB to connect memory, processor and MB cooling blocks
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Thank you in advance
Best Regards
Aspelta

A bit too late for a flush now biggrin.gif, I personally never flushed my rads before (apart from the XSPC rads) and never encountered a problem.

That's the spirit!! I also put faith in EK products thumb.gif, however, I wouldn't mind if someone from EKWB could confirm this rolleyes.gif.

It will be in your BIOS settings, something along the lines of "Detect CPU Fan," just need to switch that to No or OFF and it will stop checking for the CPU fan and let you move on.

Yeah, you are correct, he means 20 fans, not 120mm x 20mm, the Corsair fans only come in the 120mm x 25mm size for the SP and AF fans, and 140mm x 25mm for the AF fans.
