Can you fine, fellow members help me understand if this is worth replacing and if so, the best method to clean this? Otherwise i may just pick up the corsair H100i v2 which is available at my local Microcenter for $100. Thanks for your help! Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I'd take it apart and clean up the block and rad real good and put it back together with new tubing, something like ek zmt and mahem's x1 coolant.

A compressor can blast the gunk out cold plate's fin array or a toothbrush and hot running water. Soaking the plate in vinegar will brighten it up. A 10% vinegar and hot water solution can clean out the rad, fill it, shake it around and let it soak for a few minutes (5 or 10), then flush it out with hot water.

I used primochill sysprep on my fully assembed h240x after noticing biological growth, i let that stuff cycle thru for 12 or 24 hours then flushed with distilled, but if you clean up the components disassembled you shouldn't need to do that.

Great advice, Michael. That is distinctly platicizer, which was a common issue with that tubing.

@confed, listen to this, and change the tubing. Much cheaper than making a huge step down to a CLC, and doesn't require purchasing additional ear protection like the H100i V2GTXWHATEVERTHEYCALLTHATPOSTHESEDAYS would require.

Thank you for the help! I'm at Microcenter buying tubing, orange coolant, and will follow the above here. I appreciate the fast responses!

It was actually the tubing change that stopped it. The coolant change was only made due to the supplier of PM2 no longer being able to produce it.

Thank you to the helpful advice from @michael-ocn, @ciarlatano, and @Streetdragon I am seeing great performance and it looks a lot better. Granted, you all may not be big Flyers fans but the orange fits in nice. Plenty of tubing left and I still have an extra radiator in case I get the urge to put the 1080 under water.

That is the first Philly themed PC I have seen. Nice!

Awesome set up!
Go Flyers!! I am originally from just across the Delaware river in Jersey, so I am a Philly fan.
