Yea, I have never had much crap in any XSPC rads. Looking good.It's just money....lmao
From what I've read...seems that it should hold very well...provided I don't pull parts out for replacement. We'll see I guess.
UPDATE: Let Part 1 do it's thing for around 10hrs. I sloshed it around every couple of hours while it worked its magic. Flushed it about 5-6 time with distilled and capped it. I will flush it again before mounting then run Part 2.
I'm impressed with the "cleanliness" of this rad. I didn't get a single speck of anything out of it.

My XSPC rads were probably the cleanest rads out of the box I ever received. It was one of the reasons I jumped from Alphacool rads to them back in the day when HWL was only making high fpi.Concur, my XSPC rads have been pretty clean.

Yeah I think an RX360 and then a thin rad for the bottom of my case is in my future. Not sure what to get for the thin rad yet.
Make sure you have at least one fan on. The D5 can heat up a loop to unsafe temps if left passive over night.I just took two thin ones out(360/240 HWL).....we'll see how temps go from here. They we good before, I guess.
I got it all back together(loop anyway). Got Part 2 running now....no leaks, nor a lot of foaming. My lpm increased by taking the two rads out, from around 3 to 5lpm.
So, 24hrs of cleaning, then drain, rinse, drain, rinse, drain rinse, drain, actual fluid....lol
Edit: A few pics. Cleaner is crystal clear...woot!

If you truly suspect that to be the case, why wouldn't you just drain, flush and refill? That seems to be the only logical choice.Moved my system to a new case and new reservoirs(those alphacool waterfall effect ones) and seems I never got all the part 2 out from the cleaning that was done some 8 months ago. Now with the waterfall effect it can foam a bit on higher pump speeds.
Is there anything that can be added to counteract the foaming that won't destroy the fluid?
Looking good. I have a few MMM coolant bottles and use them often. It is just rebranded Mayhems anyway.Thanks! I didn't think about that. I had to dig out a sata header...threw a GT on there. I'll check the water temp in a bit and see if it drops. Yea, the pump hooked via molex runs full throttle, which is about 4800rpm or so I think.
UPDATE: Up and Running

Temps are a couple degrees higher, but expected since I removed a 360 and 240 rad. I may add one back later. The 1ltr was just enough to fill the loop. Think the XTR for me will be just this once. I'll stick with the ModWater from ModMyMods after this.
Cost mainly. Without having the same exact hardware(rads) I'm unable to tell if there is a actual temp difference. If I had left the just one of the other rads in, then I would have needed to get at least 2lts of coolant.Mod Water is good stuff, but curious why you are one and done with XTR? I'm still deciding if I want to go the XTR route or not.
This is certainly the most possible explanation and it has crossed my mind. However, I was very meticulous with my rinsing and these things appeared after a month. It seems somehow impossible that it took them a month to move.Could be leftover parts of Blitz part 2 that didn't fully flush out. I've found I had to flush my loop 3-4 times to completely remove it all but then again I have a complicated loop.
