Installation Time

So I have all the hardware I think I need right now, gonna install everything today. Can anyone help iron out a few things, like what is the order of operations?

-cleaning, besides the radiator should I clean any other components? What should I clean with? hot water

-Where should I use the 4x 90 degree adapters I have?

-Installing the tubes, do you put the fittings on the components then attach the tubing or make the tubing measurements attach the fittings then screw on?
I was messing around with the tubing and fittings and it was really hard to put the tube on the end of the fitting, and impossible to get it off, had to cut it off, that makes me worried about attaching the fitting to the block first and having to push that hard to get tube all the way on the barb.

-any other tips.

Hardware
Lian li pc 011 air
360 rad
D5 Photon 270 Reservoir/Pump Combo
XSPC Raystorm Pro block

thanks in advance

Hi,
I always wet the tubing and fittings before assembly makes things easier to fasten.
Flush everything with distilled water.

Radiators are usually the filthiest fill half way and shake
Drain into a white plastic bowl and repeat till nothing is in the water

After assembly fill with distilled water and run it for a couple days.. and drain it all out

Then fill with what ever coolant... you've bought to use.

An extra flush :-) There will always coming more dirt out of the rads once you have them in use.
Personally I started using the Blitz part 1 kit. Even after flushing my rads 10 times, running my loop for 8 months with 5 flushes, there was still dirt coming out the rads with Blitz part 1.

Ok i'll do my leak test with distilled water.

From my diagram when do you think the best place to use the 90's would be? The radiator is set back deeper than the motherboard so I was thinking everywhere but on the rad.

Hi,
I wouldn't use a 90 if you don't actually need one.

I'm about to start cleaning everything, I have some distilled water. Is there anything I should mix with it?

I always flush radiators on there own.
Heat up the distilled water will help a lot since there is always flux and solder left inside the rads and a bit of heat helps losen that stuff.

So with a new loop id.
Boil 500ml distilled water. Let it cool a bit down to 40-50C.
Tip into radiator so its half full and shake the hell out of it. Repeat 2 - 3 times.

Assemble loop on bench, Flow order being, res - pump - cpu / gpu blocks, radiators. Flush for a hour with distilled water. Changing water twice.
Will end up with some bits in the res, you always do. So disassemble that and clean it.

Assemble loop in pc as will be used in correct flow order with just distilled water.
Leak test it, Drain then fill with your coolant choice if no leaks are found.

Then as yearly maintance.
I drain loop. Hook pump up in revurse flow. Fush with distilled water intill there is no more colour left in the coolant.
Flip pump back around the right way and refill with new coolant.
