-22c last night with XT-1. We should hit -35 to -40 in the next couple months. I'm more worried about the fans than the liquid at this point. rolleyes.gif

Edit: Granted I had condensation problems but the liquid seemed to flow properly and didn't gel up, which is wonderful news. Weather predictions are at -18 for tonight, I may take a snap shot of the liquid this evening.

If you had Multiple Openings in the Top this would be Easier.. One would serve as inlet and one you could use to add your Fluids..

Confused on the whole pump outlet res inlet thing. To me, it's all part of a large unit so not sure what you mean here. There are just 3 openings on the Mod Top, two on the open side which is for in and out, one on the other side which has a plug in it for out and then the res which has the single opening at the top. It's just a Swiftech 655 attached to a Bitspower Mod Top, Mod Kit and 150 tube res. I assume then I would fill it from the single plug at the top of the res tube and plug all the other holes since the pump is attached direct to the Mod Top which is also attached to the tube res?

In the pic below you can see the full assembly with all holes plugged but the top. The pump as you can see feeds inside the tube with the opening shown in the photo.



Also, I was told if I mix the coolant this way it will be thinner once it runs through the tubes and rads. How would one mix coolant to look the same way if not using the method shown in this video? Not sure what they meant or how to solve otherwise.

Personally I would mix with the entire system Plumbed and ready to go.. That way you know exactly what Color to shoot for in your res and clear tubing.. That video is just a Demonstration for color.

I thought you were trying to replicate that tube res he was using. Just set up your plumbing as Usual add your base color then start slowly adding your dye or whatever... Not sure what colors you have ??

Do you have a Fill Port?

@Rognin thumb.gif Looking forwards to see the results. I had to bin 400 Ltrs of ultra Pure the other day because the temp was to low ..

Sorry if this is the wrong place to put it or its already been answered but:

2 questions, 1. what kind of clear tubing should i use and 2. Whats the difference between dyes and pastels (besides the fact that pastels are solid.)

1) This is still a hotly debated question. As it stands, there's no clear (pardon the pun) choice. Most clear tubes I've been recommended: Duralene, MasterKleer, & Primochill advanced. Don't take my suggestion gospel as I know some will not agree. This is what I observe. If you want to reasearch this more, here's the right thred:

http://www.overclock.net/t/1199158/plasticizer-problems-discussion-gallery

2). Pastel is just referring to the color of the liquid used. It looks a bit less viscous compared to just plain old distilled + dye. Though, there's a performance hit by using pastel. I've heard anywhere from 2-8° more in temperature difference. I never really jumped on pastel tbh.


I'm sure others can elaborate on my post smile.gif

1) I almost always use durlane

2) Pastel is ice dragon fluid... It uses a nano-suspension of particles that make it appear cloudy like it does... From my tests (only tried in 2 machines w/ ice dragon) I say about a 3-5C change in max temps when I used ice dragon (it lowers the specific heat of the water, but doesn't decreas total performance much if you have decent flow)

Just wondering, I know it says Pastel comes with biocides and inhibitors mixed in, but does this include anti-corrosives?

I just purchased a EK Supremacy Nickel + Acrylic CPU block for my upcoming setup. Would like to avoid issues with nickel in the block reacting with copper in the rad.

Also, Mayhem, any chance you could try making that light green/sea foam green for me?

yes it include anti-corrosives for all metals except zinc.

How many ltrs do you need and do you have a pic.
