When I originally talked to Alex about it, he explained it was a Double O-Ring design of the new caps, he told me only 10 or so went out before he changed to a single O-Ring design because the double O-Rings had a leak issue. Res was leak tested but once the pressure of the pump is added to the mix it nearly blew my bottom cap clean off. As I said Alex has all ready told me there is an issue with these caps and he would sorti it. All I want to know is what is going on with my replacements if they have been sent or not if not I think Il just RMA.

Someone else earlier in the forum mentioned a problem like that and posted a video. You might be able to find it. I'm not sure it will help but it will reassure you that you are not the only one.

I'll have to check back through my emails again, I don't remember seeing anything, but we did have some email troubles last week. Something with our mail servers got messed up and I didn't have email for several days.

Regardless, I will see whats going on with them today. I know I put a work order out in the shop for them.

Hey guys so Im getting new coolant cause the EK UV blue coolant with the Frozen Q blue helix sucks, it drains all the glow from the helix.

so I'm going to go with XSPC UV clear tubing, and want to have the best coolant so the helix POPS! I'm thinking any clear coolant will do, however has anyone tried UV coolant where the helix isnt smothered by the UV?

for instance Phobya ZuperZero UV Blue/Clear 1000m?? will this smother the helix like the EK dark UV BLUE did mine?

so in a nut shell, whats the best combo of coolant for the frozenQ to really shine smile.gif

Plane distilled water. Any UV coolant will mask the helix.

Isnt distilled water conductive? like it will rust your parts, dont you need to get non-conductive fluid?

either way clear non-UV coolant is the way to go! so has anyone used PrimoChill ICE Non-Conductive Liquid Cooling Fluid clear with the frozen Q?

if you say that you can just go out and buy distilled water and that renders the same heating performance then all of these coolants?? isnt it harder to warm the cooolant then just pure water?

Ice is junk imho. Add dye and it makes it worse.

Distilled is conductive, don't get it on your components, period. Hence why you want to avoid leaks at all cost. Triple check everything and leak test w/ your main components powered off (jump start your psu and power on the pump only).

Most water cooling parts are copper, brass, stainless steel (not widely used), plastic, plexi, and pom/acetal. If you have some SS, its usually a grade designed for water applications.

see below
but yes it makes heat rejection harder

mostly true. i dont comment on if it is junk as i dont use it

ALL coolants used will be conductive. ( see here for proof )

only thing to worry about is galvanic corrosion ( great reads btw ) only real reason to use antifreeze
i would never recommend aluminum in a loop.... ever for this reason ( above ) and the fact that copper does so much better to reject heat.

only other reason to use colored coolants is personal choice, and that is the only good one imo.

however almost all dies are made from solids
it really is your choice on what you want to use. but most heat removal will be with plain old water + biocide

warming the coolant is not the problem... it gets difficult to explain ( when i just woke up from a nap ) if you want i can go into it better later... but martins has some great reads to answer these questions.
