PC moving house.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey all. been a while

We are moving and I have decided it will be safer to dismantle my PC and remove both the rads.
One is on the back and the other is loose in the bottom of the case.

Im wondering the best way to flush the system?
I seem to remember using white vinegar diluted? Need some reminders.
Also should I flush it with the old tubing in or wait and do it with all the new tubing?
I have a red dye in there which I want gone if possible.

finally I kind of need to use an elbow joint but after ordering them am a little worried about how restrictive they might be.

Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.

If you're taking it apart to move, then I would just say dismantle and drain it. Throw away the tubing (get more later) and just take apart all your blocks, rinse them with 10% vinegar (few min soak) and then soak it in water for 5 minutes or so and then just wrap em up and move them! Then once you're settled in set up the loop again.

Those elbows are really restrictive so if you can use a bit more tubing and some smartcoils (swiftech, koolance, or whatever brand) to make those tight turns.

Cool thats what I will do then.

Im happy taking the cpu block apart but what about the EK on my Ultra?
Is it advisable to take the top off for a proper clean or should I just flush it through?

Cheers
