So I have the green version of this case on order. Next buy will be the H100i. Does anyone have pics of this case with the Noctua's?

Just to clarify; at the beginning hot tap water and then wash off with distilled water to remove the remainders?
The distilled water has to be hot as well?
Any tips on flushing?

what about Mayhem X1 uv blue is it better than Aurora?

I didn't use hot water but only tap water when flushing my components. I follow [Martins guide]. The guide use hot tap water. Final step is flushing using distilled water 2 - 3 times. The distilled water not need to be hot though.

I already run my loop for almost a year now & already drained my loop a couple of time. My Mayhems Pastel Blue Berry still look nice since day one. AFAIK, the only time the coolant change colour is when the water PH level is messed up. When refilling my loop, I pass the used Pastel through a coffee filter. Nothing caught by the coffee filter, so I did a good job when flushing my components.

Mayhems X1 is good. These reviews might be able to answer your question.

nice, i see that Aurora performs as well as the X1, but Aurora is used only in simple loops.
So it should be fine! wink.gif I really likes the looks of it.
Do you flush the pump as well the same way?

a bit off topic but hey ho ! got round to getting a new psu i picked up a rm850 for £119 quid in maplin uk guys will know what i mean, plug it all in and all great tidy install ext power connectors all plugged in and all that.
BUT, the thing keeps crashing, constantly trying to boot up it will kick in shut down, kick in then boot,
when loaded up and if its lucky to make it to the desktop give it half hour and a blue screen of death appears with a memory message. ok so with a couple hours messing about it seems to be now stable and had a random blue screen with writing however i unplugged the 4 pin socket from the 24 pin main mobo socket, i cant get my head around it why it will do that ?
also I like to add I had this issue with the SSD drive I got I updated the software on it and it cured it I just don't know weather it does not like the psu sounds like a strange thing but could it be possible ?:
hear is pics with a description to what is connected and what it looks like.

Do X1 or pastel have such restrictions?
I am thinking to use EK x3 250mm res with Ek- supremancy. and EK 4.0 DCP

What about Hardware Labs Black ICE Radiator SR1 360 will fit at the top of the case or it will be harder? it has 54mm thickness.

thanks
