Help gpu block rusting

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I watercooled my rig in February of this year and I was changing some cables out when I looked under my gpu block to find this green/white gunk in between the fins. I didn't mix any metals, my CPU block is nickel and so is my gpu block, there both from EKWB, and am using there ekoolant evo clear coolent. It's been almost 3 month since I watercooled it and it's already starting to corrode what the hell do i do? http://imgur.com/7fnPjjl

Looks more like microbial growth to me, Are you running a sliver coil in your loop?

With the EKoolant you shouldn't need one, as it says it has anti-microbial growth inhibitors already but idk, that looks like algae to me, lol. It wouldn't hurt anything to pick one up as they're only about $7 from PPC's or Frozen CPU, Monsoon even makes a silver plug that you can just thread into an empty spot on your reservoir.

Maybe someone with a bit more experience can chime in, I had my first loop together for about a year and didn't have any problems with straight distilled water and a silver coil.

How does your tubing look as compared to a new fresh piece? Could be plasticizer. Also did you clean our your rad before installing the loop?

You need to get in there and clean whatever it is out before it does any permanent damage and/or gets any worse.

Then get on to EK support seeing as you are using their blocks and coolant to see what they can offer to help.
