Default fluid- compatibilty list?

Having had the same issues with some Thermaltake clear fluid as in the XSPC thread, is there a list of fluids- apart from Corsair stuff- that either can be recommended or more importantly avoided.
Just going through second flush of deionised water in this loop so fingers crossed it will clear after a few more

Could you let us know the exact model of Thermaltake clear fluid?

Coolant compatibility list can be found under related Hydro X parts, under compatibility tab.

Based on your issue with XSPC EC6 coolant, we will monitor and take further actions to validate its position on the list.

Thank you for info.

I would recommend to get distilled water for further flushing procedures.

You can make it without much effort.

Have flushed the loop for past couple of days and is looking not too bad now. I did have to remove the reservoir and clean it out as there was a load of white gunk in it which is odd as I did a thorough clean out of the rads before I started the loop.
There is a small spot on the cpu block- more of a stain than anything but doesnt seem to be impacting anything and I dont want to strip it down just yet.
