Hello. I have finished my loop a week ago. I ran demineralised water in it a few times to clean it out then changed too XL5 clear coolant. Now I have a white on the nickle looks like water spots / marking.

 

What is the best way to clean or fix this or what has happened.

 

All parts are Corsair.

Hi,

 

Demineralized water is unfortunately not the best liquid to flush. We recommend to use distilled water.

Are these spots present only in the CPU water block or also in any other part of your custom cooling system? Could you provide a few different angle pictures of CPU water block internals and other parts if these spots are present.

 

Most likely, these will not go away with simple flush. A thorough clean with soft brush will be needed but prior to doing so let us check on more images.
