EVERYTHING IS OK..well of course except the corroded barbs and water block.
kill coils and biocides corrode ek blocks.

Right..that explains why all 3 of my EK block are fine but the XSPC is not.

Glad to hear your gear is OK so far

The clamp/no clamp is a choice I suppose, kind of riding a bike without a helmet. Backups and safety equipment only show their worth when something goes wrong. Until then, everything's fine, but the consequences of a mishap can be much more severe without it.

That corrosion/gunky nasty buildup is definitely a major problem on its own, but I do not think there is any way the tube would have popped off entirely if there were clamps in place... the clamp puts a collar behind the barb so in order to slip off, either the clamp would have to somehow come loose or snap, or the tubing itself would have to burst, and that would take a much, much larger amount of force than you would ever see in a normal loop.

It's all good I made a full recovery

I am just puzzled about this corrosion and whether or not to reuse the XS block.

Did you clean out all of your blocks and rads with boiling water and vinegar before you used everything? If not then particles of crap from production could have caused it. Sorry if this was already asked im not going to read all 17 pages.

Clamps are not considered extra safety, they are mandatory - whoever told you to not use clamps is an idiot.

You wouldn't plumb a house and not solder the joints, or use compression fittings... why would you throw a water loop inside of an expensive computer without clamps or compression fittings? Shesh - I've never seen a community such as watercooling so full of arrogant know-it-alls spewing out a giant load on everyone.

Clamps or compression fittings -> always use them. Don't mismatch tubing that's not meant for the fittings. Clean your gear and thoroughly inspect it before use - every time. Don't throw in a bunch of **** into your loop. Use a light mixture of pre-mix and distilled (you can use less than you would think, it's a small loop with not much water and the conditions aren't extremely harsh... nowhere near as bad as in your car's loop for instance) even if you think you're "joe superhero, with 0.001celcius better temps because you run just straight distilled 'like a man'". Monitor, and take care of your system and loop like you would take care of everything else you own. Be it the clothing on your back, the car you drive, the house you own... whatever it is if you're a lazy arse, you will pay. Same goes if you're cheap... you're going to be the one whining about issues all the time.

To reiterate: take care with your stuff, take your time, use common sense, don't be cheap when it comes to something that could ruin your components and lastly... don't be lazy and upkeep your system like you should do with everything else.

No it actually wasn't asked. And I have never thought about doing it.

Maybe I should have. Oh well I'll try this out this time around. Do I just drop the block in boiling water? Let them sit then use vinegar to clean it out?
