Sooner or later, EK will require ferry piss as the only liquid that you can run to avoid nickel corrosion.

I had something similar to that too and I was running some ek en nickel plated blocks, ice dragon and some mayhem dyes. Had no idea what that was, nothing I had at home at the time would work to get the remove that "layer" of substance. Block's not in my hands anymore but to day still had no idea what it was but I think it has something to do with the zinc oxide in the ice dragon.

Contact the Mayhems and the EK rep as they may have quicker responses than rma/customer-service.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll contact EK/Mayhems and share the results. However, from EK's warning (i.e., don't use anything but distilled water and an anti-corrosive), I think I'm out of luck.

The sad part, all the plating is turning to crap. I love having my old EK Supreme HF block. It uses the old plating technique and (knock on wood) no problems. This sucks since EK makes very nice looking blocks. If distilled water and kill coil did not affect my old nickel block, it shouldn't for these as well.

Take the top off and wipe it away,i honestly cant believe you are saying that's a plating fail BEFORE he has taken the top off
