What was the state of the waterchannel before you mounted it? EK have a habit of leaving milling marks everywhere,these small imperfections catch the suspended material.
Give it a good clean and get some nice clear pics of what lies beneath,only then will you know whats going on.

You didnt cause anything,some people are just too rabid for reasonable discussion.

Perhaps it has something to do with this?

I have EK Nickle blocks and run Feser One(GASP NO!) YES! yes I do. No problems. Warning: Images! (Click to show)

ShortAlieN, do you have a build log or anything for that? It looks great, I would like to see more.

Had time before my flight. Here are the results. It's definitely a reaction with the nickel (every EK product I've had is great, so I'm not trying to find an opportunity to bash):

i actually talked to mayhems themselves abbout this very issue and they said there would be no issues as long as you are diluting it with distilled water only! and to not add any other additives.

it looks fine. that looks like tarnish. use some ketchup and a papertowel and gently rub the ketchup in then follow with a vinegar rinse. that should solve it.

also try and put the block on a flat surface and take some more pics! there is a focusing issue with those. i little blurry but the flat surface will help get rid of that

It's hard to tell. The two worst spots (first picture) look like they have a dark gold color in the center.

This happened in less than two weeks...what would it have looked like if I left it for six months? Hard to say it's not a concern.

I have no idea if this is corrosion or not but imo it's a far assumption..... If i saw that all over my vga blocks corrosion would be the first thing that would come to mind and I have to say it does look like corrosion to me in his second group of pic

I leave for a few hours and everything goes to hell, lol.

Anyways, I simply gave my opinion. I don't take sides on the plating issue, I wasn't there. I'm partially sponsored by EK, so I think I would be the most likely to be the fanboy. I'm not, I simply just go off the experience I have.

I'm more than happy to have a perfectly normal discussion, but that's because I don't have experience with blocks failing which tends to leave a sour taste in anyone's mouth (no offense Wermad, I warn people about Rasa kits biggrin.gif ). Its not really something that needs discussion anyways, its been discussed so much.

I have 3 nickel blocks on the way, we'll see what happens rolleyes.gif
