So I’ve been running this loop for about 3 weeks and yesterday I’ve noticed this strange white discoloration on the PTGE tubing, I’m going to flush the system and see if it’s any kind of residue or if it has anything to do with the sunlight, but has anyone had anything like this before? Any ideas what it could be? Thanks!

No it's just regular Red Pastel pre-mix
I know that the last batch of pastels that went out from Mayhems had an issue as the mfg of one of the components changed the formulation without telling anyone. Perhaps this is linked to that? I don't really know what the symptoms were. Post up in the Mayhems thread - https://www.overclock.net/forum/61-water-cooling/1286896-official-mayhems-users-club-1752.html#post28562874
You may get your answers there, and if it is a Mayhems issue, they have been making good for people.

So I’ve taken everything apart. Definitely a white gunk of some kind. I’m just wondering how much of it is in the radiators. Now how would I clean this loop? Would blitz 2 help? Or just run hot distilled water through for a while ? Man, it’s very disappointing to have your first custom loop gunk up like this in a few weeks. I understand **** happens but I’ll tell you , it’s very discouraging after spending hours building this. Contacted Mayhem support a couple of days ago, still waiting for an answer. What really sucks is I don’t have any other kind of coolant than the Mayhems Pastel one so that means I’m without a computer for a few days ... just very frustrated....

After you clean everything, just run distilled water for a few days- it gives you a chance to see if there is anything left hidden in the lop.

Whats happend is the system is PH un Balanced, its fallen out, if you contacted our support as suggested to you, you would have been given a free blitz kit, replacement coolant and also water to help cleaning the system. ...... To late now.

I've contacted support as you suggested 5 days ago and been talking to Ian. What do you mean "too late now"?

I'm pretty confused about this statement. I've sent you a personal message about contacting your customer service and not hearing back, even giving you my ticket number.
You told me that you were going to send him a message.
Now you're talking as if i haven't contacted both you and the customer service and telling me "too late now" ?

Ah right, reading above it never said that, "to late now" is the reference we normally ask for samples however atm, I've asked Ian to just sort anyone out with issues however we can and get them up and running as quickly as possible as we found the cause and pulled all pastel because of it. Glad ians on it, btw i deal with that much i forgot about your PM lol. I really need to get more staff in...

God, I do! I mean, i'm OCD and a clean freak, i'm just dying for a clog so I can clean my loop and add fresh coolant. Nothing like the smell of new coolant in the morning.
