Hey Guys,

About a year ago I took my watercooling out of my pc due to one of my barbs leaking and frying my GPU. However I just purchased a new CPU and Mobo and was hoping to put it back in. Upon taking my old parts out of my bins I noticed my pump has a little rust on it and the inside of my radiator has oxidation. My CPU and GPU blocks have a very small amount of oxidation but I can take those apart to clean them.

My pump is the XSPC 750 and comes in a solid acrylic res so I am unable to get to it to clean it. I tried hooking it up to my pc and running it for a bit and it seems like it ran fine. For my radiator I have tried filling it half full with distilled water, shaking it for a couple minutes and pouring it out. I've done it about a dozen times and the water still comes out pretty green. Will these parts be ok to put back into my loop or is it time to invest in something new? Is there a way to clean the radiator to make it usable? I know a lot of people say to run vinegar/lemon juice through it, will that be enough?
