Or basically just another comparison of both but with actual colored tubing to see which one would be brighter.

Coloured tubing isn't transparent though. It has no depth. Honestly doesn't look near as good IMO.

UV coolant in UV tubing does squat to affect the glow of the tubes. The reason I'm using UV Coolant is for my clear reservoir and because my CPU block has a clear top... I want to see my fluid glow in those locations as well and no one is making UV reactive cylinder reservoirs (yet)

As soon as I get my new monitor and psu back from rma, I will have a video ready for Mayhems uv pink, red, deep purple, & uv clear/blue.

I'm also contemplating buying different clear tubes to test. I'll be trying the local hardware store first and then the other selections from other water cooling tube manufacturers.

(1) From experience would you say UV colored tubing has a more pronounced glowing effect than UV coolant?

(2) Or did you simply resort to UV tubing + coolant for when your case is not under a black light so that people can appreciate the colored tubing, AND wanted to have the ultimate component glowing experience when combining both the UV tubing and coolant?

(3) Did you resort to premixed fluid or distilled water + glowing colorant additive? I'm guessing the colorant (assuming it doesn't separate) would give the best results since you can customize the concentration and ultimately achieve brighter results than stock coolant...correct me if i'm wrong

1.) I would have to say my tubing glows just as strong as the coolant I am using. When you look at the tubes compared to the reservoir, they glow about the same. I believe UV tubing is the best way to go if that is the effect you are most interested in.

2.) I originally ran distilled and the colored tubing is just nice when the UV lamps are off. I don't have to rely on the color depth of the coolant to make the tubing green like it is. Throw the UV lamps on and they glow nicely which would allow me to run distilled if I so desired.

3.) I added the premix Feser UV Acid Green coolant because I wanted that extra pop from the reservoir and because my current CPU block has a clear top. It is kind of cool to see the coolant actually glow in those two spots but am also fine with them not glowing. I'm still using the premix because at the time, the UV dyes were limited when I built this machine so we'll see if I bother switching over or not.

I'll soon be doing yet another new loop design as I add a second GTX 580. That of course involves getting a bigger power supply which I haven't picked up yet and am not sure if I'll have time to redo my loop right now with all my work projects going on. New PSU = new sleeving work, changing my loop around and other stuff I have planned. If I'm taking this thing apart I plan on making some changes smile.gif

I have never used any dye's so I can't actually provide any real world experience with how they perform. Plus when I switched to my premix, that was 2yrs ago before stuff like Mayhems was even available.

What I did see from early premix was people having problems with separation on certain CPU blocks (especially restrictive design blocks that were running 24/7 and hot). My blocks up until I switched to the GTX 580 Koolance were all low resistance blocks so running a premix didn't worry me.

It really depends on what you are looking for. Feser one has been available for a while and the Mayhems is fairly new.

If you take a moment to view the op pics, you'll notice how the Feser has a brighter uv reaction than the Mayhems. But, my testing was not limited to that and when I factored in all the tests, Mayhems was the better choice, not necessarily the best under all tests/circumstances.

This may very since I'm not thrilled with Primochill's tube rolleyes.gif With less thick and clearer tube, they Feser maybe the better choice for some.

Currently, I'm very pleased with its regular light performance (something that I gave it the nod vs the Feser). I'm trying to setup a new uv light system since the ccfls I have suck frown.gif

your running thinner walled tubes? which ones?

Nope, Primochill 1/2x3/4 since I have a bunch of 1/2x3/4 compression fittings. With a less thicker wall, say 7/16x5/8, I would look better through the tube imo. Even more so with 3/8x1/2.
