Thread Starter 
I know what it is. Its actually a reaction to the tubing plus acid in the system from the cleaning of the rad in the manufacturing process and mayhem pastel (all in one go). When you combine all three elements together this is what happens. Hence why we tell people not to use tygon and all so why we say flush you system properly. Bicarb will reduce this problem when you flush as system out as well.

I think i have said this several times in this forum how ever its nothing to do with each product and is no ones fault. This is one of them very rare occasions were this will happen.

We have been trying to narrow it down to which tubing it happens two how ever this is not a easy task as tubing from the same manufacturer is never the same across different batches and since they don't have batch no's it makes it worse. Its like just hitting your head on the wall some times.

Btw if the guy had contacted us first we could have proved it from a small sample of the biomass and got it looked at professionally at a company quite close to us. But alas if he doesn't send us a simple email (which is on the bottle) how are we supposed to help.

Hey Mayhem, you might want to go revise your response or make a new one. You assumed almost everything and didn't respond to anything you were supposed to. I don't think you read a thing he said tbh.

Just saying.

I ordered my first custom water cooling gear. Can't wait for it to arrive! But I'm a little worried about the coolant I chose. I jumped the gun on the Aurora because it looked so cool. But I read now its not recommended for everyday use although there are users out there that have used it for long term. I'm only a little worried because luckily all the WC gear I chose meets the Aurora requirements. Maybe I should play it safe and go for pastel or XT-1...

Go with the pastel or xt-1. I wouldn't take the chance of running a "show" coolent on my daily computer.

How much coolant do you need for a loop? Just one cpu block and a small res.

1 Ltr will be enough for a normally 1 CPU loop.

I did the same thing (brought Aurora), for the same reason as you (first loop) and I doubt you'll listen (I wouldn't have) but it's quite likely you'll end up with a messy and annoying job on your hands, trying to flush it out - in a matter of weeks if my experience is anything to go by.

I thought I was going to have to take my whole loop to bits and scrub stuff with a toothbrush.

Fortunately, I got it all out, by flushing for hours from a tap (straight through the system and out the other side) and continually taking the hose on and off the tap so as to introduce air and turbulence in the blocks to knock the stuck-on pearlescent bits loose.

Distilled and a biocide for me from now on, and I expect you'll be the same in a couple of months.

Hello modders, forumers and good OCN community.

I seek advise on whether I can mix 1L of Feser VS.C (http://www.tfc-us.com/product/feser-vsc/) with XT-1 150ml UV Blue Coolant and Di-ionised water to use it in my loop?

Will appreciate any help.

Thanks.

Yeah. I went and ordered the XT-1. I guess the Aurora will become my new paper weight.
