So what exactly needs to be done to reduce the build up of algae, mold, and whatever the fuhh grows in there?
And Im sure at one point the closed-loop system Corsair provides is gonna have some kind of build up?
The sealed loops like h50/60/70 are made to be "non maintenance" products, but after a few years they'll still need to be replaced. Most likely they attempt to sterilize everything before assembling the loop. And they use a denser FEP tubing to help prevent the fluid from "evaporating" through the tubing. i'm pretty sure the liquid they use is a distilled water/ethylene glycol mix. The ethylene glycol is there as a biocide and an anti-corrosive agent, since the radiators are aluminum.

reducing growth?

kill coil, pt nuke, the usual

flushing rads repeatedly, u can run it through a closed loop with a pump and some bucket if u want.

put it into a sink, use the water pressure to flush.
