You have to disconect the pipes and clean it out that way. Putting coolant and distalled water in will stop whats every in the pipes. It will just keep going around and around the system. Even if stuff falls off the pipes. might wreak the pump. best to take it apart and clean it manualy.

I think i know whats hes talking about.. my pipes are like that too... its kinda nasty, here let me pour some zerex super coolant on it and see if the stuff comes off.. .but it DEFINTELY doesnt come off with just distilled water.

 

 

 

Ya, i just tried it the stuff is just plain nasty, its most defintely from the fact that i just used plain distilled water when i first put it together (forgot to buy additives and didnt want to pay shipping just for that) and the CPU block / radiator rusted and carried it through the tubes... its a deep, dirty brown mess... it doesnt come off the tubes, im doing the same as him and just plain buying new tubing and this time im adding lots and lots of zerex super racing coolant ^_^

 

But if anyone can tell me why i should spend the $1.65 more per foot for tygon tubing vs. the normal tubing, id really appreciate it ^_^ i like to have stuff that works, but i dont like to get ripped off for no reason :unsure:

lol whoa man looks like you got a mess there

in my case, i dont got that big of a build up like your pipes are

i probably just noticed like a few small clumps in there, but nothing serious

 

well you cant really get ripped off on tubbing because they all go for around the same price per foot, what, 1.50? thats how much ive been running into lately

 

you tried xoxide.com or koolance.com?

ok not all things need to be bought of the net. a hardware store sells the stuff for like 49cents a foot.

 

and this time im adding lots and lots of zerex super racing coolant

 

not a good idea. its the water that transfers heat. not the coolant. the coolent merely gets rid of the heat transfered from the water faster

 

 

The stuff in your pipes is algea. a good solution (no pun intended) is distilled water with some windex cleaner. windex has a pH of 10. (ammonia) something which algea doesnt like.

 

But if anyone can tell me why i should spend the $1.65 more per foot for tygon tubing vs. the normal tubing, id really appreciate it

 

I could tell you, but i'd have to kill you. Lol.

 

The main difference is that tygon doesnt kink. but if ur carefull, the store bought stuff will do just fine.
