Cloudy tubes, new installed loop

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
There are these white particles which seems to have stuck inside the Primoflex tubing. The water in reservoir looks clean but i wonder how the CPU block is.

I did clean the Thermochill PA120.4 radiator once with distilled water, shake, twist and shout..but not enough i'm sure.

What would be the process of cleaning the radiator, should i add vinegar?
Thanks!

Yes when you clean a rad you should add some thing like 20% vinegar to distilled water. How long have you been running the loop? Tubes will get foggy, you just cant get past it.

Well unless it bothers you I wouldn't change them. I don't see it causing problems.

I had transparent masterkleer go cloudy on me after a few weeks of usage. And my radiator was completely clean. My Primochill ran for 6 months, they stayed relatively clear. I guess it depends on the make too

Thanks for the help i may do something about it later, right now i'm thrilled with the water cooling system, temps and overclock are much better than previous air cooling.
