When I turn it on there's a sort of initial visible swirl as it mixes back together.

It's normal, and no it's not harmful in any way shape or form. Absolute worst case scenario the particles could get caught in all the nooks and crannies causing the pastel to look diluted, but this won't effect performance or safety at all. It's not common for pastel to have issues with particles falling out of suspension from what I've seen, but it's not to say it will never happen.

If I use my current XSPC Raystorm waterblock with Aurora, it says to just make sure that the fins are straight. So, I don't need to remove the little plate that is inside the block?

Great green coloring on the fluid

Yes it is. Pastel is a nano fluid which means it has nano particles in suspension. Without constant flow or movement the particles will eventually fall out of suspension. Starting up your motor and running for a minute should kick all the particles back into suspension pretty quick. Nothing to worry about

Just as a followup.....my son's been away for a week and he sat down to use my puter today and went "Wow, did you change the fluid, it's much darker"...... So I wasn't going crazy..... it did undergo a significant change is last few days.... from bright red, perty close to Mushkin / RoG Red to more of a rusty mauve color

No noticeable change after 4 months and then .... boom ..... in a week a noticeable darkening......thought it was just me.

-No change in room temps as yet
-Two bottles of Mayhems Red Pastel + two 15ml bottles of red dye
-No tubing issues and loop is 10/12 mm acrylic with just two 2-3" sections of Tygon 2475 for vibration isolation at pump
-Alphacool Rads ....other components in siggie
-No fluid added since 1st day Mayhems in loop
-Only significant change since before color change is ran water temps up close to 40C and CPU temps to 84C by running a test with rad fans off. Doesn't seem logical as I have hit 36-37 in previous low rpm tests., but can't think of anything else.

-Tap water flush with "shakie, shakie" treatment to get any flotsam / jetsam out
-Two six hours treatments, acidic (vinegar) and base (baking soda) solutions of rads with tap water flush between
-Tap water flush for 20 minutes, @ 5 gpm flow, alternating hot and cold on each rad individually
-Two fills with DW, followed by drain
-Filled loop with DW and ran for a week
-Full drain, (collected 1.9L) double DW flush
-Installed Mahems / DW mix

Suggestions / remedies welcome

You shouldn't remove that plate or else your performance is going to drop pretty significantly.

Have you checked it with a bright LED flashlight or out in the sun?

You prepped it properly and maintained it pretty well. I highly doubt the 40C water temp would affect the colors, but maybe others may have something else to say.

So, the plate shouldn't cause any issues with the Aurora then?

With Aurora, just keep in consideration that something in any loop could potentially grab particles. Maybe it will, maybe it wont, considering none of us HAVE the new Aurora, and while Mayhems tests a bunch of parts with it, he can't test every single part in every single loop configuration possible, it's impossible to say "Yes it will work with your loop for a year with no problems at all."

I'm still debating on aurora. I use the X1 stuff now, and have no problems with it.

I just don't want to go through the hassle of running vinegar and such through my loop, then cleaning all that out for it to may or may not work. With my current loop, I just ran DI through it, and drained it, and have not had any problems.

The setup would now be, XSPC RX360, XSPC Raystorm CPU, XSPC Razor GPU block, and D5 Adjustable pump, and Alphacool Tube reservoir.

I doubt it myself....so much so that I doubted my own eyes .... 2 -3 C should not affect anything.....but it's been in the same spot for 4 months and for it to have such a noticeable change in a week is just weird. Case has interior bright white LED lighting so background lighting is good. 250 ml res isn't full so can easily see no film on side walls. I'm stumped.

It would be nice if it could bet determined whatever is causing this as if it is a precipitate, it cold perhaps be filtered by using lab grade filter paper of specific size.... bigger than the nano particles and smaller than the particulate.
