I've been using Norprene tubing with DI water the whole time and top of the loop maybe once a year. I have a small loop thick 120 rad, CPU and GPU blocks and custom res in an it's case so there never was much fluid to begin with.

This isn't the first time I have noticed this black staining on a cpu block while using Norprene tubing. I'm not really concerned about it since I'm going back to air cooling for the foreseeable future. I will likely just put it all back together staining and all when/if I go back to water again.

Loop has only had copper, stainless and chromed brass barbs and a silver kill coil in it. Hoses are probably 4-5 years old. It just as soft as the day I bought it and the only sign if age is the dirt layer on it.

I only ask because I'm curious if anyone else has had this experience. I vaguely remember it being a concerned that Norprene might leech color over time but it doesn't appear to leech plasticizer or break down like other tubing is known for doing.

This guy seemingly had the exact same loop components and issue as you:

I wonder if it's the silver kill coil messing with stuff?
