Flushing radiators with Cola.

Never heard of it before but I just came to think that stuff contains citric and phosphorous acids. I have a couple RX480 radiators that I used eons ago, they are a bit green inside but not too bad. Inclined to try it.

Anyone else tried it? Not a fan of the hype so I reckon for cleaning you'll find the chemicals you need without a costly sticker on it.

NOTE This is before building the loop and the rads are maybe 5 years old pre used.

Why would you want to put something that inherently leaves a sticky film into a loop with a pump? Just buy some citric acid, or just buy a lemon, and some distilled water. That is all you need.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

Just get some lysergic acid diethylamide... Might not clean your radiators, but you probably won't care!
