usually faster gets bubbles out of the places it is stuck in. You can try cycling the speed too. You just don't want to create turbulence because that has the potential of making more bubbles

Yep, true, cycling the speed helps!

Hi guys.

This question goes for mayhems or any other who use bitspower fittings with mayhems pastel.
I've been running mayhems pastel white with bitspower fittings for a total of 18 months (with changing of tube and coolant every 6months or so, I've changed it 3 times in that 18 month time)

I just have dissembled the water cooling loop, and after cleaning and inspecting every component, I've notice that the coating inside the bitspower fittings have been worn out.
The pictures are posted in my own thread: http://www.overclock.net/t/1472785/worn-out-bp-fittings/

I have talked to my supplier about the fittings, and he told me that it is the nano fluid (all the small particles), that basically polish the fittings to that degree that the coating will start wearing off. By the fact that the fittings looks polished, which is not the case when they are brand new.

I am curious about this as well since I just ordered these same fittings and want to run mayhems pastel

Ditto. There's nothing "wrong" or dangerous with using those fittings since they're not corroded or discolored or anything, the finish just fame off on the inside. Definitely interested in what Mayhem has to say.

My XSPC fittings have some discoloration of the finish inside as well, but has never messed with my loop. I'm currently using Mayhem's Ice White Pastel and I haven't had any issues, although I've only been using it for about a week now.

The discoloration happened with just pure distilled water over the span of a year and half of usage. There was a month that I used distilled water with a few drops of Mayhem's Blue dye, but aside from some staining on the ends of the fittings, the insides were never really affected.

I'm loving the Ice White Pastel though!

Yea, im interesting in what mayhems has to say as someone else that have used mayhems pastel overtime with bitspower fittings.

I just got these 2 articles thrown at me, from my supplier (who I have learned in the lasts emails, he deff know's his stuff) pretty much interesting reading:

This is not our fault how ever we have been working on a cleaning system that will resolve the issue.

@Mayhems-

I am 99.9% confident that this loop did not have any radiator contaminants and that it was properly cleaned before use. My PC was built by num1son here on the forum (the PC is actually the Erakith Tribute Build), and I believe Mayhems partially sponsored the build by supplying the coolant. I'm thinking you guys have to have confidence that he has the ability to properly use your product- else you probably wouldn't have provided any product for the build. I'm no expert, but the loop would have to have been rather filthy to cause such a significant color change in such a short amount of time. I highly doubt this is the issue here.

I'm not sure if your post was a direct reply to my post, but I'm really not satisfied with that explanation. I hope you guys can help resolve my issue.
