I had to test the radiator today.
There were no tools for it.
I figured it out :)

An idea for those who are building their first water cooling system and there is no pressure-test set nearby.
I built such system many times, but I didn't see the point in investing in one, I trusted myself.
But it can be useful, I needed it now because the radiator that I install in my current machine has been used here and there for a couple of years so I thought I'd test it now before installing to avoid any complications when the computer is finished.
So the ingredients:
1 car tire valve (Schrader valve)
1 locking screw to close the end of the system.
1 x 13 hard tube fitting (I use Alphacool.)
1 bicycle pump with pressure gauge
You connect the fitting to the other end of the system, unscrew the nut, insert the small rubber valve with a valve needle through it and you screw it back into place.
The bottom also sits right into the fitting.
You connect the pump and inflate gently as you feel, I used 1 bar of pressure.
If all is well, you can bleed the air from the system by pushing on the top of the valve needle.
