Do i need to flush new Monsta rad?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
just received 3 480 monsta rads, do i need to flush before installing or can i hook up my loop and run distilled water for 24 hours before coolant?

I was thinking of running hot water from the sink through these? bad idea?

Not at all, run hot tap water then rinse with distilled water.

Better to do it before installing them in the loop because if you have some junk in them, it will gunk up your CPU block and other blocks .

As KaRLiToS said, rinse them with tap or distilled water. I usually clean mine with rubbing alcohol.
