Like I mentioned it's with the fittings I used and that is my only gripe, I definitely prefer the mayhems tubing over everything else I've used so far.

really impressed with it, the thing is massive, well packed and you get Blitz part 2 and XT1 clear with it, everything for £45 shipped ohno-smiley02.gif
for that price you can only get Magicool rads so I wonder how this beaty is gonna perform. One thing that sort of dissapointed is the amount of dirt coming out of the rad when cleaning before first use. You could drink your tea from XSPC rads comparing to this one. Extra time and patience is required when cleaning Havoc(or maybe it's just the one I got).
Will see how it performs and report back.
Gonna paint it white btw smile.gif

Good morning muzammil84. All the rads should have (were cleaned by my self) before being capped. The black may be paint or patina caused by the copper sitting over time in the warehouse. This is why we give you a free mini blitz kit with the system to clean it out to make sure you get the best possible experience from its usage.

How ever if i did miss one i do apologise.

I honestly would never drink tea from an XSPC rad because all of them I've used have been full of bits and dirt lol, I need some rads soon for my AMD build so I think I'm gunna buy some of the 360 rads when I order my dyes and pastel coolant.

Colour change issues within a water cooling system.

Advisory


We at Mayhems has been doing some extra investigations due to our new support system. We have found issues with flux used by some radiator manufacturers that has not been fully removed pre sale of the rads. This flux can stay with in a system for a very long period of time and can be directly related to issues reference colour change of lighter colours such as Yellow, Orange and Red.

Mayhems suggest the following.

At bare minimum ALL Rads should be flushed with flowing hot tap water (40c to 60c) to help remove and loosen off the water soluble flux from the manufacturing process. For a minimum of 30 minutes.

You can Improve and speed up this process by using Part 2 of the Mayhems Blitz Kit with hot water to aid and speed up this cleaning. Flush with hot water afterwards is still required.


To avoid any favouritism this should be applied to ALL Radiator manufacturers or OEM Radiators.

Have you tested the use of vinegar etc on the flux? does this have any effect at all? With that said I'm going to get some blitz cleaning kit for my rads as I want them clean as a whistle plus vinegar and hot water lands me in trouble with the 2 women I live with, it smells bad apparently lol.

It is not a problem at all, as I said, I clean all my rads anyway.
Including Blitz and XT1 is a very nice touch, but I thought blitz part 2 is more for cleaning the whole loop(that's what I'm gonna do after installing the rad) than for prepping a radiator. I always use dilutted vinegar, boiling water, flush it many times and run deionised water a couple of times. It works and removes all the dirt, build ups etc.
I was just a bit surprised when I saw quite a lot of black particles and green stuff coming out when flushing because all of your rest products I use are absolutely amazing quality smile.gif

Hey guys, would you blitz 3x new HWLabs rads? Or just the standard hotwater+vinegar flush? I'm looking to run clear fluid only and don't want the water to yellow over time. All parts brand new. Will be an acrylic or glass tube build so no plasticizer leech.
post #13479 of 15721
I would not. I clean all my HWLABS rads using this method.

I have 4x 480 Hardware Labs Ultra Stealth radiators and I did the old and hard way I have cleaned each of them very vigorously with hot water refilling and shaking them several times. HL are among the cleanest radiators but when I run blitz part 1 you wouldn't believe how much more stuff came out.

If I was to do it again I would skip the manual shaking with water and just get Blitz right from the get go, then run a blitz part 2 afterwards, regardless what radiators you have, than you will know you won't have to clean them like than again and you will contempt to know they are really clean
