So I opened up the top of my waterblock wondering what happened as my flow went to hell. Well... Lets say that when I opened it up, I ran to the bathroom to throwup, and then I stayed there for about 30 minutes, throwing up twice more.



And from another angle:



I ran and got the first thing I could find... a nail, and started to get some of that stuff out of there, but it was no luck, I had to find something more powerfull...then a nail. Whatever could it be?



I moved to a can of airduster (the canned high pressure air) and that did the trick. Got most of it out and here it is after the dusting




Anyways, I guess this could help out other people... when you open up your waterblock, make sure you have a chuck bag handy, and do not eat before cleaning your waterblock.

Note: I closed the top to my fishtank since this episode with some tinfoil lol.

1- clear out ALL your water...clean ALL your tubes...and try and polish the inside of that block a bit....that's pretty dirty....

2- get a real res, or get rid of it completely...

PS - THIS IS WHAT YOU GET!!!! REAL GOOP!!!

You're a bad bad man, chopes....*****!

(if you know what I'm talking about, you probably wish you didn't.)

Yeah dude...all that joking and you get real goop


Using a fish tank would be fine, you just have to clean it out first (I'm sure he did) and make a airtight lid for it and add some anti-alge stuff.

*sigh* yeah, I guess the goop got back to me -_-

Anyways, had the goop as my background anyway. Now this can serve as a nice air freshener for the days the goop doesn't get me going.

But really, I didn't know algee (sp?) even looked like that. Looks more like snot really...

Now you understand why I was bugging you every day about closing the loop off.

If you want to be that ghetto, go to Wally World and buy some heavy plastic (like they use for painting, but thicker) and duct tape it.
