Figured it is either algea, ie the kill coil hasn't been in long enough, so I added a drop of Biocide extreme.

OR it's the kill coil reacting with something in the loop?

Looks like one of those Alphacool reservoirs that have end pieces cast from lead.
I'ld bet any money the black nickle plating is lifting away and the lead (or whatever it is) is reacting with other metal and or coolant in your loop...
plus giving off nice flakes of the plating to deposit elsewhere in your loop.

had one of them few years ago so my 2cents.gif is from personal bad experience with one mad.gif

It's only ~6 months old, the entire loop actually.
The RES is a Phobya balancer 150
So, get the kill coil out of there?
I have added some Biocide as I wrote earlier.

drain the loop and check that res for flaking nickel plating, suggest getting ready to order a different res.
doesn't matter how old a product is if it was bad to begin with redface.gif

Did you blitz your rads? Looks like flux, and/or contaminants from the rad rather than algae to me. With algae you'd be more likely to see microbial cultures developing in the res rather than just a slight tint in the water. Is it just in the reservoir or is it everywhere in the loop?

No discolouration anywhere but the RES, and that seems to have improved since adding Biocide.

Before Biocide

So, what do you guys think?
Didn't see any signs of flakes in the res. Atleast not that I could see.
No, did not Blitz the RAD before installing it, didn't even know Blitz existed at the time.

It's better to get one advice too much so to speak than not enough...

So probably algea or discolouration from "crap" still in the rad?
I'm guessing algea as it seems to be clearing up and I added the Biocide yesterday IIRC. My memory is short, very short, alot on my mind atm.

Edit: Made a short video as I was listening for noise (thought I had heard a strange noise earlier)
Excuse the noise of my breathing, my fiancé watching desperate housewives etc. The loud sound from the case is the 3.5" HDD, fortunatly that is only during boot.

@Mayhem I bought two bottle of each (Follow me now) Of Pastel orange and Green pastel.



Like this.

Now I've mixed 1 bottle of each in these loops, after putting 1250 to 1500 ml of Distilled water in each.




The Orange looked great at first... .Now I doesn't look.. well... orange anymore? I've added another 2oz of the 2nd bottle of Orange Pastel to try and make it more orange but to no avail. It's almost a Rust colour?





What can I do? I am close to draining the loop and going with another colour. The Orange kinda resembles V8 tomato juice rolleyes.gif

The Cautious One (Thanks for making the pastels too!)
