Only other way it might happen that fast is if there is air pocket from sitting for a while copper wet/ dry tarnish.

Yeah I'm not sure, maybe from o-rings? Been running only distilled for years now.

running pure distilled has its down sides. like, slowly eating your loop, and growing stuff, if copper sulphate levels aren't high enough from radiators/blocks.

Aquacomputer or Mayhems Clear are both work wonders, specially if you like to leave your coolant as is for years on end. stuff should come out looking new, with a slight patina. otherwise, people are causing unnecessary strain and wear on components, simply because some old timer told them coolants are a scam.

no no no. most coolants are a scam. thus, make your own, or buy from the only two companies capable of keeping quality coolant in stock.

for your picture - probably just dirt, dust, and grime. channels become more effective filters as the channels get small enough to trap single grains of dust n sand.

balance isn't as big of an issue in a pure copper loop, as long as nothing's growing.

Hi,
What type of biocide the promo chill reboot stuff you mentioned ?

x299 I'm on x1 clear everything looks new.

If it's o-ring streaking I've not seen either of mine do that.

I had this reboot lying around, supposed to clean stuff so I am running it then flushing it out.



Biocide I've been using is Utopia, none of my other blocks got this coloring, I'm not really concerned it's not making anything worse. I don't think epdm tubing would cause it, maybe its in my rads?

honestly, all that old stuff is truly snake oil tier.

upgrade to mayhem's X1 or + series drops (soon to be a combined 1 drop solution)

only issue with the drops is they don't inhibit evap like X1 does.

Hi,
Yeah I'd be using x1 clear on x99 but it turned greenish and so I flushed out again and just did the mayhems + products and cheap local distilled and all good so far been 4-6 months I believe still clear.
Always find out quirks after the fact that x1 clear has a 50-50% chance of turning green using hardware labs rads x299-x99 both have them :/
