Both had this blue color stuff come out of them, it could have just been tarnish but a lot of other crap came out of them too.

Any particular brand vinegar? Would you say it's almost a bluish green?

Any brand of vinegar will do so long as the acidic level is 5% or less. Get it as hot as you can stand it. You're gonna be holding a hot tamale otherwise. I used a 500ml pyrex measuring cup and heated the vinegar 3 minutes in a 1k watt microwave and flushed

500ml straight vinegar.
500ml 50/50 with distilled
1000ml Distilled
500ml cold flush

in my used radiator. For a new one I would probably suggest doubling that and running a pump through a strainer and pickup underneath it to get at the clean liquid.

Wow 3 minutes I would think it might boil after that amount of time! So the vinegar shouldn't harm my PMP-450 D5 pump?

Shouldn't. You aren't gonna leave it running in the loop long enough and that's what the distilled hot flush is for and the cold flush following. wink.gif

Yep, bluish green and other crap. As the vinegar, Ceadderman is right, 5% hot as you can get it. Now running it through the pump, you may not want it too hot.

Alright guys, I'm crossing my fingers usps can deliver my res this Saturday and I'll have pics of the new tube installed. After putting my rig together and finishing the sleeve, I've decided to go with the "Pearl Blue" as it matches the sleeve better than the UV Blue.

That sounds like corrosion, that's also found clinging to the Statue Of Liberty. Two years ago I pre-flushed my HWLabs GTX480 radiator (using only distilled) and left a bit of moisture inside. When it was time to install the radiator it had Lots of greenish blue stuff growing everywhere inside! I will probably use my retiring DDC 3.25 pump to flush the rads and not my new PMP-450.

Nice I like how you mounted the PSU up front, also I don't think I have ever seen someone fit two 360's in a case that size before. I forgot what pump you were going to use? A DDC would be a better choice since your running restrictive water blocks, I also like that sparkle blue tubing! It will be interesting to find out if Primochill tubing is still clouding up given it's a new color of tubing.

I'm just going to hop in here and ask a nubbish question. Apart from the Tygon® Plasticizer Free Tubing ( which is crazy expensive.) is there any tubing which is having less issues with leeching. I started with the junk that came with the xspc rasa kit. 3 weeks and it was like this

P1000662.jpg

I switched to some masterkleer clear UV tubing. When i first installed it. ( nice and clear)
P1000708.jpg

A week later then i installed my 670 and its already starting to cloud.

P1000716.jpg

Are there any ways to minimise the leeching/ postpone it?( Im running with deionised and mayhem biocide.) Would it be worth getting some distilled and killcoil? Will it make ANY difference wtsoever?

Or are any other kinds of tubing taking longer to cloud? Idealy i would like clear UV Blue tubing if possible because of the look. But it seems there are not any options that wont just cloud up and look terrible. Even if it took a few months to cloud i wouldn't mind replacing the tubing every so often, just one week takes the piss.
