Mayhem's Aurora Fluid & how it compares!!! - Page 2

post #11 of 72
Because of all the hard work Nornam has done and we have to say right from now he never approached us nor did he ask for any free stuff, he did this off his own back. We are going to work on a Aurora Yellow. When we are finished with testing and ready to release it we will be naming it Mayhems Aurora Namron Yellow. "Nomron" is Nornam nick an the ST forum.

As stated all so because of this review we have changed our labelling of all of the Aurora products which now state on the bottle in big red letters ">>>>>Shake the bottle vigorously Before use <<<<<". We read all reviews that people make and we listen to what you have to say. If the review is constructive and honest and has some pointers we will take note of them and adjust accordingly.

I would all so like to say a big thank you to all the supporters of "Mayhems" and wish you all the best. We will continue to support every one and we will always listen to our consumers. After all with out you guys we would not be here.

Many thanks for your comments Mick, Well pleased your going to test out anew Yellow, It does look good for sure & as for having it named after me...I'm chuffed to bits, never expected anything like this biggrin.gif....

I enjoyed doing the review & Love the effect of the Aurora fluid, It really is a breath of fresh air & brings something totally new to the liquid cooling side of PC's.. Nice one thumb.gif

Seems like something you'd need circulating constantly, else it'll settle. If I had to guess I'd also say it could even be abrasive to any metals in the loop, too (and even the pump), but I can't check that myself. Otherwise it does look good.

I've seen the info on the Aurora dyes on the Mayhem's site, but seeing it in a system now has made me slightly impressed. I guess I'll know where I'll get my dyes when I eventually upgrade to real watercooling from my H100.
I also know TinyTomLogan is a big fan of Mayhem's dyes, and I think I also know why now biggrin.gif

Hiya CC

I've only had in my system for around 6 or 7 weeks now, It's used just in an everyday PC, The PC is turned on & off for everyday use & sometimes left off for a day or two at a time & so far the fluid is still reacting as when I first put it in.
People do need to read the "WIKI" notes http://mayhems-aurora.wikispaces.com/ as it gives not only some of the tested equipment it's passed on, but also about having static points of flow in your loops & any little traps there maybe. It's a case of planning your loop connections accordingly to avoid these pearlescent particles from settling out of the flow your pumps generate.

I have only just recently put some Aurora into my much more complicated GPU loop (3 x 460GTX blocks, 2 x rads, 15 x 90° & 5 x 45° fittings), to test out if it looses it's effect through settlement e.t.c. It's only been running in the GPU loop for 3 days now (same PC as this reveiw was done on) & so far it's still doing fine.

Only time will tell I guess, But as it stands at the moment I personally love the effect this fluid gives smile.gif, something very new for the liquid cooling community to get stuck into, performs as a coolant very well compared to some of the other leading coolants out there & really does look the part. For those reasons I'm willing to give it a shot & was the reason I Modded the HAFx for this fluid & put the tube res's on the front of the case.

I will certainly report back with any issues I have rest-assured, But as I said above, So far so good & Loving the Effect biggrin.gif

All the best

2 days will probably not make the particles settle, no. But try going on vacation for 2 weeks.

You wont see the effects of abrasion in just two months either.

Hi Vasily D

When I go on vacation & come back I'll let you know tongue.gif , but by how much more the particles settle over two weeks as to 2 days?.. It seems to me (as shown in the Vid) that the particles settle out quite quickly after shutting the system down, So I'm not sure to be honest that any more settlement does happen after say a 2 day shut down to a 2 week shut down!!...
As for the abrasion, time will tell I guess.... Can't see it myself but then, If no-one gives new stuff arun we'd all still be blowing air across a HS wink.gif....
Sometimes you just gotta dive in & see for yourself how things will work out & I'm in that bracket & just passing on my experiences..

Anyway, As siad, I'll let you know if things don't work out, as well as letting you know when things are going good..

All the best

The pearl settles out with straight away and as soon as you add flow again to the loop they are picked up rapidly.

How ever we are working on a V2 of the fluid that stays in suspension a lot long how ever we are trying not to comprise the cooling aspects of the liquids as well (this is were the trade off is). This all takes time though and the testing last months.

The pearl will never dammage any components as it is not metal based.

there is a good review here that goes into a lot of details about aurora. - http://deviceunknown.com/?p=1375

Hello again peeps smile.gif..... Just a very quick Vid of how the Aurora coped with the PC being shut down for around 6 weeks & see how the fluid reacts after such a long settlement period (as querried by "Vasily Degtyaryov" above)..

The PC was shut down on the 28th Feb 2012 & was re-booted today 11th April 2012, So were looking at around 42 days shut down (& I promise the PC was shut down for that whole period).


Just want too point out here, that I know I said in the Vid that the PC was shut down for 5 weeks, But that was before I'd worked out it is actually a 6 week shut down. So there it is, my take on all that is Aurora wink.gif...

If used properly & following the recommendations as listed by Mayhem's Wiki link, I feel most users will have no issues using this Fantastic, New to the market PC cooling fluid is a real boost to the PC cooling fraternity & is a stunning product I highly recommend smile.gif...

Thank you all for taking the time to have a look & for all your comments...

I'm very interested in using this product. Can you tell me where I can purchase it here in the States? I live in Arlington, TX.

Thanks...
