Default cleaning out an h100i

I took my fans off of my H100I after 3 months of use the second time I took it apart. and OMG all of the crapola that's in the radiator. I did this once before with a can of compressed air and a vacuum with the brush attachment and i'm having problems cleaning all of the gunk out of it. so I am wondering if it's safe to put the radiator part under a faucet providing I don't get the pump all wet

should be fine as long as you dont get the pump wet. its sealed and theres nothing electrical in the rad of course. I've done it with air coolers multiple times. Just be careful.

Make sure it dries out completely before reinstalling the cooler.

Just came back in to ad that. I'd lay it on a towel n let it dry overnight.
