Neither did I, just made sure there wasn't leaks before starting the system on (secondary psu powering the pump when filling).

I took apart my CPU block to clean it - there was crap in it from the corroded fittings, I'll post pictures of those later - cleaned it with Tarn-X, worked pretty well. Reassembled it and thought I'd pressure test it just for grins, The pressure was dropping immediately and I could hear it coming from the side of the block, took it apart and put it back together again and it's holding fine now. $20 investment for pressure testing, totally worth it.

I'm gonna use nitric acid and distilled water to fluash the stainless steel pipes in my loop. Will it affect the nickel plating on the water blocks?

Rainmaker91, I think I know what you're driving at. The loop isn't actually pressurized, when you open it up you don't relieve any pressure. Instead, it's rhe head pressure from the pump that puts a load on things. The system doesn't necessarily need to be airtight, you could have an open fish tank full of water and since the pump couldn't drain it you'd be fine. However the loop itself - blocks, fittings, lines, etc. does need to be airtight so it won't leak and pressurizing the system with air is a good way to test that.

Yeah, sort of. I do think I managed to confuse more than help though, but I'll blame the lack of coffee or something (always good to have something to blame).

It's an interesting concept, to leak test with air. Personally I don't see a point, simply because it doesn't take much to leak test with the fluid you want to use, and as long as there is no charge in the components that, then any leak would not be considered dangerous. In fact it would not surprise me if you could dip your VGA card in a bucket of water and still use it, you would just have to bee very sure that all the water would be gone before providing an electric charge to it.

Still, a leak test based on air pressure is an interesting way to do it.

I have an L kit too and love the ZMT. Together with the nickel CSQ fittings has a real industrial look almost like hydraulic lines, which was pretty much exactly the look I was going for at the time.
