Alright so I completed my analysis. After taking apart all the blocks and pump it seems it was a mixed bag. EK 1080 Ti block had machine oil left it in, than the MB EK blocks started to peal and the oil got into the those blocks also.
Finally after taking part the Pump I found some white fluid stock below the rotor and than I realized I never took it apart until now. I bought the pump and radiators used and did a quick wash but never fully soaked the rad or took the pump apart.
So to conclude I think the left over fluid was interacting with the distilled water and whatever was in the radiator came unstuck after I starting folding and it heated up leaving it in the CPU block since it was most restrictive. Before I was doing work and light gaming and the radiator never got warm, now its like a cup of coffee after a few days. So the EK blocks just suck and I didn't completely flush the used parts. The green i'm seeing is as the nickel starts to peel off. EK will be a no buy for me in the future. I would like to say the Watercool Heatkiller has been in my loop the longest and has all the nickel still.
