Thread Starter 
I flushed my brand new XPSC AX480 with boiling tap water, after that i rinsed it a couple of times with distilled water but still can't get rid of sort of white/black residue , should i worry or i can still assembly my loop:

I'm not sure you want to. It could be sealant. It is interesting though. Perhaps call/email the manufacturer and ask what it is?

If it were an OLD radiator instead of a new one I would suspect calcium or lime buildup from hard water, in which case something like CLR would clear it up. It's new though. I'd find out what it is first before you remove it.

I'll try to get in contact with XSPC, the last time i tried it took them almost 2 weeks to reply a simple reservoir inquiry.

ps: If its new how could it be a calcium/lime buildup ?, i flushed it with tap water but after that i rinsed it a couple of times using almost 2 liters of distilled water.

if it's new it can't. That sort of buildup takes months or years, which is why I think it's probably something else, and you probably don't want to remove it.
