XG7 3090 FE - Cleaning Issue


Recommended Posts

Hi all…having either a rust or algae problem with my cooling loop. Have taken it apart and can’t seem to get it all the way open (it seems machined together). Am I out of luck or is there a way to clean this gunk out?

Thanks! That is helpful…I was originally able to get the fins out; however, unfortunately I need to clean the entire cold plate/block. It looks like in the part of the video they sped up, the missing screws that might be holding it together are under the thermal pads so let me take it apart again and see if that works

while you work on that, to the core of the issue : what coolant were you using? also what radiators?

that's usually the two causes of crap buildup in a loop.

If you were running pure DI water, you may have to flush the entire thing pretty thoroughly.
