feser view UV dye or UV coolant???!

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
So microcenter sells a 50ml bottle of UV dye made by feser that can be added to distilled water. I was wondering if I should get these at 8.99 or buy a bottle of 1000ml UV coolant for $18. What do you guys think?

The guy asked a question ... tut tut

@ op

The coolant is a all in one solution it contains a mix of water, dyes, glycols, inhibitors and other things. This is good to help stop corrosion in your system that DI water and dye alone does not do.

The dye is a add-on on product that only adds dye to your system.

If you are after a all-in-one go for the pre-mixed liquid, if you only after colouring the Di water then go for the dye. If you after colour tubing then go for that.

Its up to you at the end of the day which you go for.

UV tubing is the way to go. Take their advice!
post #6 of 30
Thread Starter 
well i already have primochill uv red tubing unless I need tubing that specifies "reactive". The uv CCFL i bought from frys is doing jack squat as far as the glowing effect goes. I've seen videos of the UV Coolant under uv lighting and its extremely bright. I know the benefits of the coolant but I'd rather not run a clog in my pump if I didn't have to. The reason I listed them both was to elicit a response as to how bright the UV dye actually gets. If its as bright as the coolant in the videos I've seen then that'd be good enough.


@UltraNeo - Because some people more make then they can spend. Whats wrong with wanting my tubing to glow? One of the main reasons water cooling is awesome is because it looks over the top. Whats the point of buying my colored tubing if I can't even see it?

buying coolant is a waste you won't get corrosion using distilled water and pt nuke or silver coil. to prevent corrosion do not get a aluminum product in a loop with other metals.

to op just use cathode or leds. dyes will fade over time
leds are brighter consume less power and don't fade over time like cathodes

Dude, you can spend your money wisely or foolishly that's entirely up to you. I was merely making a suggetion cause pre-made coolants generally suck!!! Their performce is often less than cheap distilled water with nuke. to make it glow you could add a UV active dye or keep the blocks clean and choose a UV active tube which looks much nicer IMO.

To point out some thing. Silver coil only kills some stuff in you loop it does not stop BUILD UP of certain metals in you loop unless you add a de-scaler or inhibitor this is especially prevalent with the introduction of plating we have been seeing and is certainly NOT the best biocide available. The same goes for PT nuke. how ever we have been working on this problem with a new biocide to combat this. (how ever i am not here to sell you some thing, im here to give you the best advise i can).

When running plated products you should be using a de-scaler as well which is in Premixed coolants how ever it is not in PT nuke which is a common and one of the best biocides on the market.

Unless the above posters who flame premixed liquids can prove this wrong with real technical data to show what they are saying then like much advice offered take it with a pinch of salt. All so they seem to forget some glycols are used in making there tubing. All so bad tubing is a problem especially with such thing as plasticizer build up which causes 90% of build up in water cooling systems and can be seen in normal System when just running DI water and biocide.

Best thing is to do a little research and check things like glycols, Vegetable extracts with additives, and maybe have a look at why http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citric_acid can help you as well.

And as for UV tubing not fading that is total rubbish as ALL UV products eventually fade over time. No mater if they are suspended in water or plastic or even tubing.

I do agree that cathodes are no ware near as good as leds.
