Hello WC folks. So after my last thread where I showed my slightly corroded gpu block, i decided to buy a new Nickel + plexi block from EK. I assembled the loop yesterday and I can see some bubble-looking shapes in the gpu block as you can see in the pic so Im just wondering if this is normal? I don't want to experience the same thing I had with my previous block so I'm being extra cautious.

Everything in my loop has been cleaned and flushed with distilled water and then EK CryoFuel coolant prior to assembly. Here are all the cooling parts im using:

D5 pump with EK top
EK 250mm rgb reservoir
XSPC Raystorm Neo Metal (copper base) cpu block
2 x EK XE 360 rads
EK nickel + plexi gpu block
Bitspower non chamfer brass link tubes
Bitspower fittings
EK CryoFuel clear coolant

If your loop is brand new, let it a week or two , the bubbles will disappear slowly but surely.

Alright, thanks! I just fear it could be oxidation or something cause these are not exactly coolant bubbles, they look to be stains on the metal, but I'll wait and see.
