Powdery Green/Gray Crap in my Loop

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I noticed this in my reservoir the other day







What is it? And what can i do to rid this from my loop and from having it ever return again?

This stuff is probably in all my waterblocks and radiators!

I only use Distilled water with silver kill coil and deadwater

PLEASE HELP!

Is it moving particles? So if you shake your PC it moves with the flow? What is dead water...?

Yes it moves with the flow. And to the guy who replied earlier, I thought my complete build in my signature would be enough. I guess not. I use green see through tubing and all bitspower silver compression fittings. Dead water is a pc coolant Biocide.

The loop is my Motherboard and Memory Loop

I use EK Corsair Dominator GT Waterblocks

and EK Waterblocks for my Rampage IV Extreme Motherboard

I think they are all copper

but not 100% sure.

Did you flush your radiator before use? It could be flux.

It's some severely flowed flux, carried from the radiators. Flush your radiators.

You are probably right!

Whats the best way to flush my radiator?

I did this yesterday: I hooked up a tube from my radiator to a Submergible pump/reservoir going into a bucket of distilled water. From there it goes to a water filter and then back to the Bucket with distillied water.

I had this running for about 2 hours. Is this the same as flushing out my radiator? Or should i do somthing else just to be sure?

if so what do you recommed?
