Hi all I will be getting my first watercooling loop delivered today. I'm getting the Thermaltake Pacific R360 Water Cooling kit, 3x Blue Riing 12 LED fans, 360mm Radiator, D5 Pump, Blue Coolant, Fittings. I cant find any distilled water for sale locally to flush the radiator out prior to building the loop, all that I can find is de-ionised water. the Kit comes with a litre of coolant but I dont want to waste it flushing out the rad for the first time, would it be safe to use the de-ionised water to do the cleaning of the rad and other components?

     Seems both will work. Distilled vs deionized

    look for UV treated  or revers osmosis treated water --> less likely to have anything in it that can contaminate your loop
     
    I usually start with Hot tap water -- if I suspect any large amount of contamination
     
    then rises several times with "clean" water
