I purchased brand new radiator, res/pump, waterblock, and soft tubing for my new build.

Besides flushing the radiator out, do I need to flush any of the other components out?

I hook up a spare PSU and run all for an hour just to test for leaks. But that's me.

everything better flushed, it's safer from any contamination from the old loop
