It's supposed to be cu... Or at least that's what thermochill says (its a pa120.3). I don't have any al components.

Don't know then. Can you disassemble your pump to make sure it's not trying to eat itself?

I'm not sure why my pump would do this...because I've never put my loop together before. To answer you question: I don't know if I can, but I have a D5 vario.

I like flushing the rad with hot tap water. Then you can quickly switch directions and flush back and forth both ways. This usually does a good job of breaking out anything loose.

All rads have some gunk in them, sometimes it just takes running them in a loop for a few months before it's all out.

The newer micropin CPU blocks work great as filters too..

I am not a water cooler, but I am an engineer. I can tell you that there is a major difference between having metal particles and oxidized metal in your loop. Metal can oxidize (or rust) for quite a while without any particles leaving the base metal. I would look for some mechanical wear like a pump impeller that is rubbing or a low point that was not completely flushed.

Maybe one of the water coolers with more experience will reply soon.

Best of luck.

Yes they do. Found several pieces from who knows where stuck in the pins of the Fuzion V2, when I put the quad plate in. None when I pulled it out though which is good IMO.
