Still good?
If stored at 25c it may be possible its still working. How ever if stored higher or lower it may only last a few months. It is out of its recommend usage though. Personally i would only dilute it to 1/2 its recommended size on the bottle just to be sure.

I sent you an email a few weeks ago via the Mayhems website asking some questions about my Blitz kit and the results I got with it, I also posted here a couple of times but didn't get a response to either. I understand you've been busy dealing with Thermalfake and I completely understand, but if you do find the time to reply I would greatly appreciate it.

In case the email is lost or didn't make it, essentially what I was asking about was why my Blitz Kit has a different mix ratio to what is listed on the Mayhems website as well as the website of the vendor I purchased from (Singularity Computers). The ratio on the bottle and in the instructions for Part 1 is 50ml per 1L of fluid, but everywhere else says 250ml per 1L of fluid. Some of us here have speculated that it may be a newer, stronger version but I don't think that's been confirmed.

I used it on 5 radiators, 3 of which were brand new and I didn't really get anything out of them except some blue-ish fluid. I flushed all the rads very thoroughly with distilled water after draining Part 1. Each radiator was left with Part 1 for 10-12 hours.

In the past using distilled white vinegar I got a lot of visible debris out of 2 radiators, much like what is seen in your instructional video, but with Part 1 I didn't notice any debris.

When I put the system together (with 2 of the radiators) after using Blitz Part 1 and 2 I let it run on distilled water for 8 hours, checked the PH level and it was right on "7" using the litmus strips that came with the kit, which is perfectly within the ideal range. I then added Mayhems Pastel UV Green in the correct mix ratio and just 1 hour later I found bits of black radiator paint lodged in my GPU block.

Next time I will run the system with an inline filter for 24-48 hours to ensure this doesn't happen again but my concern is with how effective the kit I received was and why the mix ratio was different to what is listed everywhere.

Looking forward to hearing your opinions and best of luck in your case with TT. I sincerely hope they get what's coming to them.
Hi There

Depending on were you live int he world you get diffrent versions as we have to get it though customs and each and every country has diffrent regulations. Also we have been improving the mix ratios and try to up date the site as much as possible which can be hard to keep up on. The instructions in the box all ways have the most up to date information we have on the products.

Yes we have a new stronger version.

Ref flushing , some times if you don't get into all the corners you will have flakes coming out as Blitz takes time to work. Only a good flush getting into all the crevices and air gaps will aid in removing all the bits. Also barbs can dislodge paint on the side.

Hope this helps

Thanks for the reply!
I won this bottle in a giveaway back in 2012 and green just isn't my thing, however, I may try it and grab some pics of my loop/setup in green.

Hey thanks for the clarification.

When I flushed the rads after using blitz part 1, I plumbed the radiator into the mains and let it run for 5 minutes, then flushed it with distilled water many times by filling the radiator and shaking it vigorously each time. It's just kinda odd that I didn't see any debris come out during that process. When I used distilled white vinegar in the past I could see the debris come out immediately when I poured out the mixture. The Blitz Part 1 was blue-ish though so it must have taken some corrosion or oxidization with out it.

True, there is a possibility that the black paint fibers could have come from the fittings, I can't prove that its not that. I did think that looked like debris from the radiator/s though, hard to be sure. It is very odd that it didn't show up during the 8 hours I ran the loop with pure distilled and only appeared within an hour after adding the coolant concentrate to the mix.

I bought an XSPC inline filter so what I will do next time is follow the same procedure but I will run the loop with the inline filter fitted to catch any debris for the first 24-48 hours so it doesn't get lodged in the blocks again.

System Specs: Lian Li PC-011 Dynamic - ROG Maximus X Code - Watercooled Intel 8700k (5Ghz) - Watercooled Strix GTX 1080Ti OC (2050-2063Mhz) - G. Skill Trident Z RGB 3200Mhz 32GB - Seasonic X-1050W PSU - Intel 600P NVME SSD

What you experiencing could be a matter of timing and coincident.

I don't think you can predict, neither prevent from anything at anytime ending up in the loop(s) We all trying to go the extra step of cleaning our radiators before hand to make sure that they are as clean as possible, its one way of preventing from possible issues down the road, but again, if a fakes of paint or small particle from one of the fittings threads themselves or even debris from radiator that decided to be stubborn even after using acid solution, despite of that, you might still end up with piece of wherever in your system.

In Theory, so I'm not saying you should go ahead and do that, but if you decide to empty the loop(s) and flush your system few times again getting that persistent particle out, and then refilling it again, the chance of you getting anything similar back in the loop would be very slim, but there is still that small possibility that something become lose and flow.

Yes I agree those are certainly possibilities. I don't have the capacity to drain it and pull the block apart to clean it right now since it's my only working computer (I'm building another loop for my main system atm) but next time I change the fluid or something I'll do it then. At least if I leave it for a while it will get any other debris out first before I drain it. I haven't seen any additional debris appear over the last week or two though, just the initial bits of crap that ended up in the GPU block.

My main concern was not seeing any debris come out with Blitz Part 1 across 5 radiators, I expected to see some dirt or debris come out but I didn't notice anything. Just blue tinted water. There is a small chance that I just got really lucky with the rads and they weren't dirty at all, and the debris came from the fittings, but I have no way of knowing for sure.

This is one of those things where you might never get to the bottom of it because of so many different possibilities. Maybe your rads were very clean to begin with and this could very well be one logical explanation why you didn't see anything while you were draining Blitz#1

Letting it run until next liquid change, sound like a good idea. If perhaps anything else decides to flake off or uprear out of somewhere, you will get the chance to flash that out and if nothing else will show up, your all good
