post #13901 of 15604
Hi Team,

Well I bit the bullet, ran distilled water through my new build and no leaks. Drained the loop, then mixed up the Mayhems Blitz part 2 to run through for 24 hours.

Did that, drained, rinsed, drained and rinsed again. Noticed that CPU block flow was slow and overall the system was hard to fill and bleed.

I noticed that the insert on the EK EVO CPU block had gone cloudy, just the insert. Then it hit me. My inlet and outlet was back to front redface.gif

I simply installed the CPU block with the expected flow, but due to using different components and position the flow was reversed.

Worked out in the end. Amazing how much gunk and pieces came out of all NEW components, even with pre rinsed rads.

Did not get a lot of foaming though, but at that point, my Aquacomputer D5 pump was defaulting to 60%

Thank you all for replies and help. Really appreciate it.

Cheers

I've done my dual loop few times (2) already within 2 years and Blitz# 2 does very exceptional job of cleaning gunk and any crap you might have in your loop, honestly, using this stuff totally eliminates the need of taking any part of your loop, blocks apart for maintenance, use it anally and your loop will run as good as new.

NOTE: this is the part where people should pay extra attention....use max pumps speed while using Blitz# 2 to help the soap on steroids, because that's all it is, very concentrated soap to pick up whatever needs to be cleaned , otherwise a lot of that solution will get stack in your loop and that's where you will have issues bleeding and flow rate, blitz #2 foam gets stopped somewhere in your loop and prevents proper flow and bleeding of your final liquid.

I know Mick suggested to refill the loop with DI and flash it 2-3 times afterwards but unless your loop is very small ( CPU and GPU only with maybe small rad I would suggest doing at least 7-8 times each time 15-20 min to ensure that blitz is gone out of your loop totally, but after that you have well cleaned system.

Oh, Mayhems has the previously mentioned, VERY limited cooling kit out: https://mayhems.co.uk/starter-kits/mayhems-notorious-360-liquid-cooling-starter-kit/

Anyone know if it's safe to mix biocide such as PT Nuke with XT-1 or X1? Or will it screw up the PH and corrosion protection? XT-1 @ 10/90 ratio alone wasn't enough in my system to prevent green stuff (clear, no dyes were in use). I've also read that any air still trapped in radiators can cause gunk with certain types of coolants, but I'm not entirely clear on that. Thinking of trying the X1 instead of XT-1 in the meantime after I finish scrubbing and disinfecting all my parts.

Edit: Also, I know this is a Mayhems thread but does anyone know how EK EVO Clear compares to X1 or XT-1?

everything is on mayhems website, just spare 3 minutes and check yourself in future.
X1 contains biocides, XT1 doesn't, at least description don't mention it.
It doesn mention that however:
Do not Mix Mayhems XT-1 with Mayhems Aurora, Pastel, X1 or Biocide Extreme.

XT1 is a Ethylene based coolant, and is not compatible with PrimoFlex Advanced LRT Flexible Tubing

I did spend more than 3 minutes on Mayhems website before posting, give me a little credit tongue.gif and both do in fact mention they contain "all the biocides you'll need" which apparently isn't enough or I must have grown some super strain that is resistant. And yes I'm aware it's EG, I prefer EG over PG but the Mayhems website is rather vague about the differences other than they market XT-1 moreso for subzero stuff.

it also mentions about XT1 to be kept in dark, maybe your pc is exposed to sun light?
what type of tubing did you use with it? Do you have any aluminium radiators in your loop or any chillers? These are the only two reasons I'd run XT1 in my loop, otherwise X1 or distilled with biocide if you want a clear coolant.

Interesting stuff. I have two bottles of XT-1 clear and I'm about to redo my cooling loop and you got me worried there. If it says don't mix with biocide extreme but then you have algae, then what are we suppose to do?
