Just one review. And I could link you a bunch of photos of my old build with ek coolant (albeit colored) not to mention the earlier person's post showing what happened with his tubing.

Thats nice man but i use blood red ek koolant, and although its expected to leave some gunk, there as hardly been any in the block and i certainly had no red staining of my tubing

i'd rather go from real life than some review if im honest

Here's some real life from mine using ek coolant, ek blocks, and ek rads (as they suggested)









My point is, lots of people have had issues with EK coolant (same with primochill and others), but no one I've seen to date (including myself) has had issues with Mayhem's. So why suggest a product that works for some and not others over one that has yet to show issues?

I built my first WC build in May. I used the EKoolant clear in my loop. No issues to far. Although, my tubing is opaque white and I can't see the fins on my CPU waterblock to check for corrosion without disassembling my loop. The fluid in my reservoir is still clear and looks good IMO.
