19.) Cleaning radiators, peeling off paper from acrylic and air testing loops
To prepare the radiators, I did the typical Mayhems Blitz cleaning routine. I made use of a fountain pump and the bathtub to circulate water through the radiators to clean them out. Again, being in a 4th floor apartment does not give you many options regarding hoses, etc.
Finally, it’s time to take off the protective paper from the panels and see how it looks! Now I can fully assemble the build and get ready for air testing and filling the loop. As you can see here, I didn’t have a nice way to “secure” the PSU inside the case. I just kind of propped it up and connected everything. Not a concern to me since this build won’t be moving anywhere.
Standard air testing of the two loops. I only had 1 issue where I forgot to put on the o-rings for the pumps. Pretty rookie mistake!
