Came home from a month of leave first thing when I walked in the door I could here my pump making all sorts of racket. I ran over to my PC thinking the pump was sucking air but it wasn't. I then saw that my dye had turned purple from blood red. So I turned the power down to the pump to see if it was pumping still and it was but didn't seem to have as much power. Then I saw there was a bunch of crap floating in my loop. So I tore everything down and this is what I saw.
You can see how it has mixed here to make a gunk like stuff
The other side of the block
You can see the white crap floating in the coolant
In these you can see everything is coated in it
I'm using distilled water, kill coil, and Mayhem's dye (blood red mix). I'm also using Primochill tubing, it looks like it might have started to cloud on me and the dye mixed in with what ever that white crap is that they are having problems with. So if you are running dye, make sure you watch for plastersizer leaching, even with good dye, it can gunk your blocks up. Everything cleans up easy, but the rad is going to be a pain. I'm hoping vinegar will clean it up. I also need to clean up my GPU block, it's a EK 5870 block and I have never opened one up before, does anyone have any tips for the o-rings or are they not that bad? I know a Rasa block can be a pain if the inner o-ring stretches. I'll take any other tips for cleaning this mess up. I still need to test the pump to see if it was just too much head pressure or if it is dieing on me.
