Currently in Australia for a long road trip, live in Amsterdam, there is a very good local supplier, will order a blitz kit right away to keep at hand.
That's what I would do. Shake it and turn it on.
If it clogs, you'll need to disassemble it anyway.

YMMV, but the mayhems pastel I use in my rig settles quickly. My pc goes to sleep after 30 minutes of inactivity. When I get home from work (about a 10 hour day with drive time factored in) the fluid in the lines leading to my cpu block is almost clear. Once I wake it up, it takes about 10 seconds to mix back in. I have been running this fluid for a couple of months now, and it doesn't show any signs of clumping or clogging. Of course, this is 10 hours vs 3 months, and I have a sample size of 1.

Before I got the mayhems stuff, I tried EK's pastel fluid. It didn't last long at all. In the first couple of weeks it broke down into what I can only describe as snot - long stringy clumps of "nano particles". It took a full tear down and scrubbing to get it all cleaned out.

If I was in your situation, I'd probably yolo it, hit the power button and see what happens - but be ready to shut it off at the first sign of trouble. This is absolutely NOT the manufacturer recommended procedure, but you can tell yourself you're doing it "for science".

Flushing the loop out with tap water is completely fine. All you need to do is run the last rinse with distilled and then make a real effort to get all the water out. Even the water stuck in rads and other places it wants to hide by tipping the system around and blowing it out.
Wasting a bunch of distiller water is silly. Tap water isn't a corrosive agent like some people run through their stuff for some reason. It certainly will have no effect in the minutes or seconds its in there.

If it looks at all suspicious I would always just tear it down and clean it manually. In the end it can be quicker, and its much easier than building it in the first place. It really depends how much you care about what the inside looks like.

Stagnation of fluid is what does real damage to finishes but hopefully 3 months isn't long enough to have really caused much hassle but coloured fluids are always a risk.

I would just YOLO it. It should be pretty obvious if its fallen out or not. If it doesn't mix back together or it appears to but you have weird temps, then I would drain, clean blocks etc.

Before deciding to turn it on inspect the PC for leaks.

If you travel a lot, revert your system back to air and you won't have to worry over these sort of issues.

Yeah unless it's a solid mass and clogs the pump and you leave it running for a few minutes the OP should be fine. Just keep a close eye on it and see how much if any has coagulated. If so then I'd recommend a complete tear down at that point.
The solid parts should collect in the reservoir, least the parts left over clogging up your blocks. I had one of my systems running for a month+ with partly coagulated EK crap fuel, after cleaning it pump was and still in fine.

Managed to get home to Amsterdam just before all hell broke loose in australia... again. Really feeling for those wonderfull people. But better to be in quarantine here than in an RV there. And however horrible the pandemic for some people, i see some upsides too: more time to tinker!

on topic: my system looked virtually identical to how i left it. No fallout or clogs, only a 2mm layer on top of the liquid in my res was slightly discoloured. So i turned it on while listening closely. Then it stalled, liquid squirted out of the cpu fitting and the magic smoke exited the pump. Just kidding. Everything worked like a charm. Have been running it for a few days now and did some stresstesting, no weird temps or whatever. I am very happy. Think this is also a testament to the quality of the mayhems pastel and dyes which have been in this system for 1,5 years now of which 3 months in complete standstill. And f course my EKWB components
The coming week i will change my cpu for a faster xeon and install a waterblock on my 1070, so then i plan to use the blitz kit and change the fluids as well.

Thanks for all the replies once again!

glad you're home, and glad you took good enough care of it in life, to bring it back from death without issues.

and for real about the tinkering bit. I'm sitting here realizing the 12 foot desk I built for gaming on one end, and tinkering on the other simply isn't big enough.

gravity agrees that its just right though. I'm gonna have to fashion some middle legs, it's settling into a good 3-5 degree U.

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