Any idea what this is inside my block?

I just added a new video card to my loop and i reused the coolant that was in the system that consisted of Distilled water and Primo Chill Utopia all clear liquids but before putting it back in i added some Ek Cryo Fuel clear concentrate to the mix and it started clouding instantly.

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'm sure thrashzone will be posting his cloudy EK Cryofuel pics. so yeah, its most likely "just" that.

but its usually not recommended to mix coolant product from different manufacturers. (or so i thought)

99.99% chance its EK's shart fluid + the utopia (which isn't enough to properly protect your loop anyways!!!!)

Save yourself a world of trouble, & invest in Mayhem's blitz kit (TEH ENTIRE KIT!!!) and mayhem's X1 clear OR biocide and inhibitor drops.

its garbage coolant if it isn't home made, or mayhems.... n OEMs are finally learning this & buying it from him buy the drum.

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

Agreed. Blitz 1 the rads, and Blitz 2 the entire loop. Throw that Cryofuel straight in the dumpster. I don't even bother with home brews anymore, I stick with X1 Clear for sake of ease and the fact that you never have to worry about things like what the OP is showing.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

I am thinking to drain the loop and flush it out with some sysprep from primochill that i have sitting here.

I did run sysprep solution in the used radiator when i got it i did notice it has some fall out residue green / yellow probably from a colored coolant or dye the prev owner used.

sounds like a good plan.

edit:
nevermind - i'll go w/ciarlatano suggestion.

never used a sys prep nor changed my coolant in 3 years . .

Do yourself a favor and order a Mayhems Blitz Kit (parts 1 & 2) like @skupples suggested. Or a Part 2 at the absolute very least. Sysprep is fine (as in not good....but ok if it's all you can get your hands on) for unused parts after cleaning the rads, but does little to nothing for abnormal fluid situations. You're likely just going to be saying "why is this stuff coming back?" after you refil by using only Sysprep.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

stop messing with primo-chill's soft tube included garbage if you wanna prevent this from happening yet again, forever.


mayhem's blitz kit, + X1 is the only sure fire way to clean out that mess.

it makes no sense, folks spend thousands of dollars on a loop, then cheap out on the MOST IMPORTANT PART. Coolant.
