Mayhems Blitz failed - loads of junk in my loop

When i got my two new Hardware Labs radiators i spent ages flushing them out with water and vinegar - i must have filled and emptied them 20 times. I was still getting small flecks of black coming out so i bought Mayhems Blitz part 1. I followed the instructions to a tee and flushed the rads after a good 10 times or so.

I just finished draining the loop after it had been up and running about a week and found LOADS of black flecks in the fluid.

I just removed the GPU block and it really looks to me like the micro fins are already getting blocked up. I assume the CPU block will be the same. I've tried to take pictures but my camera is just too crappy to really show it.

I'm more concerned about my pump, specifically how to clean it and how to spot any damage.

This whole thing has been such an ordeal i wish i'd never bothered.

Hi,
Weird both my gtx rads were pretty darn clean although I didn't use vinegar

Might want to add an inline filter off the pump's outlet or cpu inlet...

Only part 1. I was under the impression part 2 was not need on brand new parts. Rads are hardware labs.

Perhaps, maybe the flakes are from fittings or other components of your loop. About year or so ago I have reassembled one of my system with 4x 480 Black Ice Nemesis and they were clean already as I have used them for few years. My plan got delayed by weeks so when I got back to it afterwards I thought I would flash my rads again, they where spotless clean.

After running my system for a while I could see small black flakes in reservoir tube I was puzzled but after remembering I added few new Bitspower fittings and other Aquacomputer components in which some of their finish have got lose, it's to be expected (around threads), no big deal I flashed my system with Blitz #2 and my system was clean again.

What sort of pump are you talking about?

If it's a D5 or DDC there is nothing to worry about as far as damage. The bearing design and the nature of centrifugal pumps keeps the very small contact area free of foreign bodies.

To clean just rinse it out and maybe wipe the impeller and bowl. They are easy to clean.

In watercooling there are things to consider: maintenance as annual routine and unexpected occurrences which can lead to disassembly of your system over again if perhaps you need to troubleshoot. Watercooling is great for many reasons but it can have its downfalls, they don't have to be dramatic if you set your mind into positive mode...things happens.

There was a time I have troubleshoot one of my system for over 16-17 months, talking frustrated and discouragement, its all about positive attitude

It's a D5 PWM pump from EK.

I dont know how to clean the micro fins on my blocks. They're so narrow i'm struggling to get the toothbrush bristles to get in between them.

Also, the jet plate on the GPU block (bykski) seems to be non-removable so i cant underneath it to clean.
