White particles in loop

I am about to finish my water loop and while leak testing I have noticed that white particles are now going through the loop. Earlier they werent there but now they appeared. Any idea what they could be and if I need to pull apart the entire loop and clean it all?

 

Everything is corsair aside from a fitting extension (EK extension)

 

 

also ignore my horrid bending skill I am extremely new LOL

That looks like bubbles, you sure youve bled the system so no air bubbles remain?

Nah it dose but do you see that stuff at the bottom? Its almost like some goo I think I havent touched it but it just looks weird. I have 0 clue where it came from.

This is hardline? looks like shaved off plastic to me that may have come from deburring the cut edges? Alternatively, the go-to answer would be crap from radiators.

Do you think its plastic shavings? it looks a bit too much to be crap from the radiators. I guess you would know if you deburred the edges of your hardline, and didn't subsequently rinse out the tube which had flakes of plastic inside it.

The thing is I am extremely througho with deburing and then rinsing. I always made sure every time to rinse for at least 5 to 10 seconds letting water run through the tubing 😕

Then honestly its unlikely to be that. Did you also rinse the radiators with hot water first? What kind of coolant are you using, and what are you diluting it with (if anything).

 

It probably is just a matter of draining, cleaning, and re-filling, but good to have a think about what it was in the first place.

Can you confirm what coolant? That looks like the start of the glycol gunking up/separating from the fluid. If it is that, then it will definitely clog up any jetplates/microfins, so I'd recommend tearing down and cleaning. I know this because I had a batch of bad coolant that did that. Had to fully drain, clean, and then fill with a different coolant.

 

What did the coolant look like out of the bottle before you put it in?

 

EDIT: Heres a pic of the issue I had. You can see similar white gunk like what you have shown.

Had the same stuff appear when I ran utopia and distilled water. Went back to using ek fluids only and haven’t seen it since. 
Will be like a slim or film if you drain it. Think it clogged the rads in one of my other builds.
