You can get white fluid yeh. Mayhems do it also FluidXP i think, and maybe some others??

You want to clean the inside or outside of blocks? Copper or Nickel?

Tomato ketchup is good for cleaning copper, just dont leave it on for too long as it is slightly acidic, rinse off thoroughly. Not sure if its ok for Nickel plated stuff.

:lol: It may sound trivial but it does actually work a treat - haven't got photos to hand but it brought up the base of my EK Supreme brilliantly :)

:D

You be surprised at how well it cleans it ;) Toothpaste works also but i tried both and got better results from ketchup.

Regards to nickel blocks, horses for courses tbh. Not much if any difference performance wise, just the aesthetics really. One time i was all for copper but nickel stuff looks so damn nice :)

As others have said, it's Nanofluid XP, but Mayhem is working on a white Dye to mix with distilled that's cheaper and doesn't affect the coolant all that much.

NXP is awesome when mixed with mayhems dyes though, some really cool colours (tons of staining though)

As others have said, Vinegar, ketchup, etc, all brilliant for bringing up copper.
