Every time I drain my system I find more little black specs. Can't remember the radiator brands. Just figured it was normal. Doesn't seem to be doing any real harm
I was thinking about fitting a filter but I'm not sure it really matters.
Has anyone had a pump fail from this?

The harm I fear is that those specs end up clogging the channels in the CPU block and defeat the whole damn purpose of the loop. And then require a complete disassemble and deep clean.

Honestly I don’t feel like going through the hassle of sending them back and getting new ones. I just won’t buy EK rads anymore that’s for sure. Got my gas filter today, gonna run a temporary loop for 3-4 days and hope it gets them all. Probably gonna put a filter in the real loop too.


If you continue to pre-order games, buy DLC season passes, and pay full price for partial games with Day 1 DLC, then you are half the problem with modern video games. You are responsible for the loss of quality and value in today's games, and you have no right to complain when you realize you've been shafted yet again. Don't let publishers and developers take you for a ride. Be a responsible consumer, vote with you wallet.

The filter should catch any specks before it reaches the blocks, which can be cleaned anyways. You don't want any debris to reach the pump, though. The clearance between the impeller and the casing is really tight by design and is cooled by the liquid being pumped. It also separates the suction from the discharge. Once that tight clearance gets damage the efficiency of the pump suffers.

^^ I use mostly XSPC RX360 rads and some smaller BlackIce ones and when new, a few sets of 3 min each with a funnel under the bathtub tap in one inlet with the water squirting out across got most / all debris out. This includes intermittent flipping the rads around, shaking and draining between sets. Once no more debris was visible, two more full flushes with distilled water...this method has worked for me for 8 years + as I don't want any debris in the pumps or micro fins of the CPU and/or GPU blocks.

BTW, there must be a lot of water-cooling projects going on ...I posted this pic in several other threads very recently

Does it matter where the filter is placed inside the loop? About to start blitz part 2.

Should be between the reservoir and pump suction.

Same. I put mine before the first block since that's what I wanted to protect. Though I used 2 different filters just in case and did have the second one just before the reservoir

Sorry for the crappy picture. This was a few minutes into the flush. Best $10 for peace of mind.
