From the ones I have seen, Mayhems, HWLabs, XSPC and EK. Having said that, the Aquacomputer/Watercool ones which use the round tubes are solder less.

Hmm alright then. Those watercool rads are super pricy to import.

I was thinking about grabbing some XSPC EX series rads for my own build

Those are their budget rads, okay performers. The one EX rad I have actually wasn't very clean either to be honest. Look also at the HWLabs Nemesis GTS, XSPC AX or EK PE if you are limited by rad thickness.

I have the EX 360 for over 2 years and do not recall the EX ever being a "budget" reservoir. RS maybe was cheaper but the RX and EX were higher priced. I had no issues with it not being clean.

That's a rather bold statement. It contains no DEHP plasticizers which are the ones that generally cause issues amongst soft tubing. A tubing without plasticizers is not flex tubing. Plasticizers are what make tubing flexible. I've VERY rarely seen Adv LRT have issues with plasticizers. The majority of the time I've seen people have issues with LRT is when they mistakenly used Pro LRT tubing.

Think this happened to me. The "Adv LRT" from Jab Tech feels different from the Adv LRT from PPCs. The PPCs Adv LRT is way stiffer. The Jab Tech Adv LRT clouded/plasticizered too.

Never had problems with the 2 RX360s I've had.

You could of course order the Mayhem one.

Sounds about right. DEHP are the plasticizers that are in most other tubings and they are the primary cause of... particle hell, I'll call it. Plasticizers are a nightmare to clean.

Seems like that radiator has found it's way into everywhere but the U.S. frown.gif

@ZytheEKS you can express your dissapoint direct at the resellers who have got no balls and are being blackmailed by xspc and there lies. Never the less it won't stop us wink.gif. thumb.gif

@Mayhem, i'm going to use ridig tubing, already ordered tools fittings and stuff, god help me in this because i'm a total noob, i just want my machine working :'(

ordered also concentrate X1 coolant that i'm going to use in the future.

I now have some gunk (hopefully not alot) in the system, i will open my cpu block to change the jet plate and will clean it.

What i'd like to know is will part 2 clean the rad and rest of system from plasticizer.

should i run part 1 again on the rad?

Part 2 is a very potent surfactant, which means it breaks surface tension, fancy speak for basically being super slippery (think dish soap), and picks up particles and brings them into suspension into the liquid so when you drain they get carries out. so it should pick up any plasticizers though I wouldn't rely on it 100% for severe cases.

That being said I'm not entirely convinced your issue is plasticizers related. From my experience plasticizers won't have much, if any, effect on the coolant but instead make the tubing REALLY cloudy. It will also deposit themselves EVERYWHERE in the loop, and are a NIGHTMARE to clean off everything mind you Blitz wasn't available when I cleaned plasticizers out of mine. It looks to me the liquid iteself has somewhat of a haze. If I had to take my 2 cents I'd say part 2 found it's way into a pocket in your loop somewhere, and when you refilled it mixed in with EK and (eventually) decomposed. Just my 2 cents on the matter.

The true test will be when you open up your CPU block. If there's an incredibly resilient coating of white crap in your CPU block it's plasticizers. If there's not... Well either it's not plasticizers or it hasn't been in your loop long enough to scale. That being said, I wouldn't leave it in your loop long enough to find out. As I've said it's a nightmare to clean ones it's deposited itself.

To digress, 'very doubtful it's plasticizers, and even if it is it likely hasn't been in your loop long enough to deposit itself to a significant effect and part 2 should be able to pick any particles out from CPU blocks, rads, etc.

I hope that's somewhat helpful
