    yep ketchup. Just leave it on any kind of copper for 2 mins and rub it with kitchen paper and you'll see the magic :rock:

    Nah i dont think so. I tried pure vinegar but it didnt do anything.
    I put ketchup on it and the ketchup turned black after few mins, you dont even have to rub it.

    someone from dangerdan on their forum asked me to use ketchup lol

    You realize that you probably have ketchup under the plexi edge still, and the rig will smell like a hamburger when it heats up, right?:worried:

    Can you run some rubbing alcohol, even diluted, through the block? I don't know much about watercooling, but if the alcohol won't destroy your block then it should be able to remove the fingerprints. The line/scratch is very visible in the photo, I'd request a replacement since its supposed to be new. Why don't they wear gloves when assembling these things?

    Wow that is amazing. Some companies should put some ketchup packs, like the ones you get at McDonald's or so, with their blocks if you buy them. :D

    How did you find that out?

    lol there is your answer pmsl.

    Contact me via contact forum with you address im going to send you some pre-mix.

    Tom ketchup contains acid that will effect the out come of any dye.... please make sure you rinse your system properly and use Bicarb if needed to get rid of it all ...

    Hi michael. Thanks. Ketchup did help clean my blocks but then it also left alot of acid on the blocks. Now whatever i put in my loop the color changes. =(

    Is there anyother easy way to fix this without taking the loops apart now? =(
