    yeah i'm going back to orange, i like the red, but its just the same as every other build. the thought of tearing the build back down to wash everything out is not appealing

    Too all the people who say don't run pastels in your loop. I should have listened (or changed the fluid more frequently then never)

    Stuck with this mess, basically at the point of flushing and cutting up new tubes as it's just easier then trying to clean the gunk off. Going with the much less maintenance of red auto coolant.

    Tried dishing washing liquid and running the loop for a small amount of time made no difference. Didn't want to try vinegar as EK doesn't recommend it with the plating on the water blocks

    Awww nuts.
    At least there is one saving grace, it's all straight tubes. If you had bent the tubing it would have been an absolute nightmare.

    WOW that is unfortunate.

    Guessing it would be way more work cleaning the tubes then it would be just replacing them right?

    But then you have the issue of residue still stuck throughout the loop.

    More pics mate, sucks photobucket screwed the first part of your thread.

    daaaaamn, thats grody as hell lol
    At least it looked cool while it lasted :p

    Iv heard a few interesting reviews on the Primo Chill True fluid which may be worth looking into, havnt tested it myself so i cant speak to their claims but they reckon it behaves like regular coolant and doesnt seperate / settle.
