Very different. You're running a substantially higher risk of your coolant changing color quickly among other things. Better to do it right the first time than pulling your hair out wondering why everything is going wrong. Then you drain and buy new coolant and the same happens again. Just blitz it smile.gif.

If you have your parts out of your system already and you're planing on taking them apart and do manual cleaning than you be fine I guess, but radiators are the most important items to clean, that's what most of the issues cumming from.

If you want it to last a long time and not change color you probably should. The good thing is you only have to run part 1 once in the lifetime of the rads. With as much as the pastel costs, its definitely worth it to invest in a blitz kit. If you don't want to mess with all of that, go with x1. You still need to do a thorough cleaning of the rads, but a full blitz kit isn't as important.

When it comes to this kind of subject youtube is kind of a bad place to go. Stick to forums, some of the youtube people make you wonder how they have subscribers. There is one i won't mention his name did a build and didn't put a drain, left out plugs which caused fluid to go everywhere, had several loose fittings. These are all things that should be double and triple checked before you even think about fluid being put in. Do leaks happen yes to everyone but leaks because you forgot a stop plug or left fittings loose as a goose should not, and def not ever NOT putting in some form of a drain for your loop. Anyways for your fluid I would go with non-staining so you don't have to worry about stains, fluids to mix with is just about all of mayhems stuff can be dyed i don't think i have ever read anything that says you can't use there own dyes.

Gotcha. So when I get all my WC parts, should I clean them all with the Blitz Kit Pro or just the rads in particular? And by "long time before maintenance if you do it right the first time", how long would that be?
post #14746 of 14945
Thread Starter 
The blitz kit does some thing never thought about before in water cooling. It was a bit of a wake up call to many when we released it and did the research for it.

What the blitz kit does is

Part 1 Acid cleans you rads and makes them newer than new at times.
Part 2 clean the whole kits at the same time as neutralizing the acid in the rads ready for sensitive dyes.

There are still issues though and these lay with the manufacturers of the rads. Now companies like ThermalTake, and Alphacool do not clean there rads correctly and use low end copper. E.g ThermalTake rads are rubbish, im sorry i cannot put it any other way. Alphacool rads use low end cheap copper that is forever leaching deposits into the system. Why do they do this, well its down to whom they use to make there products. They use cheap Chinese (cheaper than normal) labour who cut corners to save money, they do it on mass and only care for the amounts they sell and not customer service. These is were your smaller companies like Aquacomputer, Watercool, and many other smaller companies have the advantage as they do not go down this route and sell a higher quality product and a real price.

Now when you talk sales Alphacool sell lots (and i do mean a lot due to there distribution around the world), so all these issues arise from there sales how ever because alphacool customer services is the worst in the world they simply put the blame on "other" companies and expect you the consumer to suck it up and be happy. That is were we come into it smile.gif, we fix there issues with the blitz Kit......

So its now down to you the user to decide if the product is right for you and how you use it.

We just lay the cards on the table for you to see how to play.

http://www.overclock.net/t/1360901/cleaning-and-flushing-radiators-with-water-filter

but for my whole loop instead of just the rads. I would be using a better filter as well, at 0.002 microns instead of 5 like the one he used.


Thoughts?

Would filtering down to 0.002 microns remove coolant and dye (I want to change to a different colour coolant)? I've read that running gatorade through a brita filter over and over will remove the colouring and taste leaving clear liquid.

Thinking of hooking my loop up to the filter and just running the pump overnight.

Need some help with cleaning aurora booster from my system.
I did loop maintenance, new tubing and water. I cycled 3-4 gallons to get as much of the old dye and aurora out from all the radiators and deadspots. After what I thought was a good job I filled with water and a small amount of dye to only find more aurora flying around the reservoir when bleeding the loop.

I've been trying to find information about the size of nanoparticles from aurora and curious if a 0.01 micron filter like this would be enough to filter it out:
https://www.amazon.com/10-Inch-Hollow-Ultrafiltration-Membrane-Sterilization/dp/B01LKMNOMC/?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B01LKMNOMC&pd_rd_r=HRY1RG367V61EMA57J5P&pd_rd_w=xDQdR&pd_rd_wg=J8thF&psc=1

I want to create a system like this: http://www.overclock.net/t/1360901/cleaning-and-flushing-radiators-with-water-filter , just need to figure out if the filter will work. Trying to avoid the option of running sink water through radiators for 30min - 1hour each and still having particles left. Even worse my OCD for wanting to use distilled to get any crap left from my really bad tap water tongue.gif With the closed loop I woould grab a 1000-2000 lph pump and let it filter, I just really want aurora out! At this point I've even considered 3 new radiators frown.gif. Advice will be really appreciated.

If you use part 2 of the blitz kit (blitz basic) it should remove all Aurora from the system.

Ok, I'm pretty much sold with the Blitz Kit Pro then, LOL. A couple of questions though:

 

1.) Which components do I need to clean with the kit?

 

2.) Is the kit usable for multiple cleaning processes?

post #14750 of 14945
Thread Starter 
The kits should clean 1 normal system. Part 1 can do upto 4 rads. These must be cleaned separate from every other components.
Part 2 is a cleaning flush for the whole system, then flush with DI water to remove any remaining Part 2 out of the system.

Full instructions are supplied with the kit and if you look on youtube for"mayhems blitz cleaning system" you will find some simple guides.
