I will order some looks like $50 for the kit does that sound right?

depends where you're ordering it from. It's usually ~$40 state side.

make sure you get the biocide and corrosion inhibitor drops as well. (two bottle set) they're the least expensive high, most reliable coolant option on the market right now. Just add a few drops per gallon, then follow directions for upkeep, and you're good to go. The droppers should last the rest of your water cooling career.

Mick, the owner has been here on OCN from the nearly the inception of his company. He's just now gone "big time" and by that I mean AIO manufacturers and other coolant manufacturers are now buying his stuff by the oil barrel to replace the garbage in house solutions they keep cooking up. The man's gone toe to toe with companies like GALAXY, etc that've accused his showroom coolants of being snake oil... all dispelled with science, & proof.

Reading through his thread will show you just how many times things like this have happened, and just how many times mayhem's X1, etc products have resolved the issue.

I got the pro kit in the mail ran #1 in just the radiators and now running #2 in the system with just the pump running. Not sure it's going to get that stuff put of the block for the gpu. I bet it's old dye coloring from the used radiator i put in the system.

Picture is a couple hrs of running with #2 in it. Going to run the full 24 hr max time it says i can do 12-24 hours.

Since the #1 solution doesn't go into the gpu waterblocks just the radiators it didn't disolve this stuff.

Hard going multiple days without the pc.
Took the free time to order a set of compression fitting.

Oh yeah kinda weird the instructions that came with his cleaning kit say 50 ml of #1 and 950 distilled water the bottle label says 250ml #1 and 750ml distilled water.

Not sure if the two Eutopia and the Cryo Fuel are having a reaction or if there was something in the loop that was killed?

Any ideas?

Oh i also added a used radiator to the system.
I've seen it happen initially and go away as everything fully mixes together in the system. However, if the issue persists, please contact our support team or RMA through the original retailer you ordered with.

Use Coca cola. Clean all.
Then lots of destilled water to remove everything.

you're referring to the tiny bit of "dry" looking white stuff above the fins? I wouldn't worry about it at this point. Only way to get that out would be by breaking it down & hand cleaning.

Day 2 of the Mayhems cleaning 5 hrs left until the 24hr max run time for the cleaner.

I made all new water lines for the system while cleaning the reserviors.
The gpu block is cleaning up some but i don't think it's going to disolve it all.

That’s a good pic. I like mine as well. This is 6 months of the clear premix. That’s what I get for not checking on it.

No idea what that is. Was all EK gear. I did do a poor job cleaning the radiators but still.

You can't mix chemicals willy nilly unfortunately. Just like mixing two different types of automotive coolant fluid can react and cause severe gunking of a cars cooling system.

Don't bother with more mystery chemical flushing systems. Just do it right, dismantle the loop and blocks for a thorough hand cleaning. flush out the rads and start again.

I have used both Liquid Utopia for many years with great success and more recently the EK clear coolant with no problems but when changing from one coolant to another you should always flush the system thoroughly or even better dismantle and manually clean everything.
