drained system, powerdery substance in tubes?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hey everyone, i recently drained my system since the first build, and the tubes seem to have a powdery substance lining the tubes

could it be residue from the dye?

not that worried, just worried that it could block up my waterblocks?

(just using distilled water and dye)

I know my CPU block is very restrictive, i took off one tube, and the water in the other tube that goes into it was still holding water when you think it should just pour right out.


Temps on everything are still fine though.


should i be worried/take apart the whole system to clean it all out?

This has happened to me too even though I used distilled water and a coil. If It's not affecting your temps I wouldn't worry about it unless you are one of those who just never stop tinkering with stuff wink.gif
