would be running 50/50 vinegear and water in the loop be a good idea running tubing through radiators this way in a closed off system? one rad is brand new the other rad has seen some use
Way too much vinegar. I used to use 1 cup vinegar per like..24 quarts of water. You only only need a little vinegar. It will eat through the thin-milled XSPC cold plate first.

Had that happen twice, killed mobo and chip once.

EK cold plates are much thicker.

okie I will soak the radiator for a couple days shaking once in a while, flush and repeat a couple times

the brand new radiator wouldn't need this treatment thought right? good thing I got plugs for it haha

SPECS: No idea how to add my system like everyone else,
Case: o11D XL PSU: EVGA supernova 1300 watt CPU: i9 9900k cooled by a hyper T2 until my waterloop arrives
GPU: 2070 super overclocked @ 1ghz mem, 100mhz core
RAM: 32gb of crappo gskill 3000mhz ram
HDD: crappo 250gb m.2 WD caviar black

The brand new radiator would need it the most. Those rads are full of flux and other crap from the manufacturing process. That's why you need to use the vinegar as an acid solution to get that out.

Build: Z390 ACE
Core i9-9900K OC 5 GHz, MSI Z390 ACE Mobo, AMD Radeon VII GPU OC 2K MHz
Corsair Vengeance RGB 32GB 3200 RAM, Phanteks Enthoo Pro M SE.
EKWB Z390 ACE Monoblock, Bykski Radeon VII GPU w/b, 2x EKWB 140 Revo D5 Pump & Res.
Aquacomputer Aquaero 6 LT USB Fan-Controller, Quadro, Vision Touch and 'High Flow' Sensor.
(2x) HWL Black Ice Nemesis 280 GTS XFLOW and (1x) Alphacool XT45 X-Flow 280 radiators.

Oh shee, I didn't think about that part heh, both will get the vinegar treatment it seems!

and to think ive made a few waterloops in the past without flushing brand new rads D: I hope the one I built for a friend is doing okay lol

i tought that every radiator needs to pass a pressure test, so i doubt anything stays in the radiotor after the test, dont kill me if its a bad tought
