What uv white pastel from Mayhem's did you use? The following is from mayhem's own website:

Warning
To keep the nonstaining abilty it must be mixed with Ultra Pure H20, Pastel Ice White, X1 clear or XT-1 clear only. Mixing Nonstaining dyes with any premixed coloured coolants will result in a staining product.
Mayhems non stain dyes contain a biocide that is compatible with Mayhems current range of products (X1, XT1, Pastel, Aurora). They have not been tested on any other manufactured fluids.

Maybe you did not get all of the part two out of your system. Sounds like what has been going on for other users on this site.

Dam I must have read that too fast when I did, i used the UV white pastel, but from what it seems is that ill just loose the fact that its non staining, it says its compatible with the range of mayhems coolants.

I rinsed the loop 3 times and shook the crap out of the radiators with distiled water in them to try to clean them as thoroughly as possible.

Either way do you think I can run the system like this for a little while? Kinda broke since i cant work during the semester and i dont really wanna spend another 40$ on coolant haha, although i guess i could always just run straight distilled water with a silver kill coil if its a bad idea. I do have some dye left over so maybe that's an option...just sucks if i have to drain this again as the pastel looks good but what a waste of $$ =[

pretty dissapointed with mayhems so far, my first run with x1 stained the crap out of my old tubing and gunked up my cpu block, but i figured maybe the primochill cleaning crap caused the issue so i got the cleaning kit to try to follow all of mayhems instructions and reccomendations as best i could and only ran their products...not a happy customer here =/

I can get pics tomorrow (since I'm running the system now) but is there any way i can prevent this? I can only imagine what kind of crap is getting gunked up in my CPU block.

I have to wait to get my PH tester replacement (i think it already arrived at my house but im at school right now) as the one that was in my kit came damaged and then ill be able to report some PH results.

Any help/ideas? Should i even be worried about it?

Separation happens when you let the coolant sit for a while. I've used pastel white and yellow and both did it. I let my computer sit for over two weeks andy res looked like it had water that was dyed yellow. As soon as I turned my pc on, it all mixed back together and didn't cause any problems. I recently tore my loop down and there was absolutely zero pastel particals gunked up anywhere in the loop.

I agree with this user. Just use it until you do the next system clean. I am currently using Blueberry Pastel with no separation in my reservoir. I am also going to switch to Durelene tubing since I've been reading up on Primochill's issue with plasticizer leaching out of their Advanced LRT tubing and I kind of have that issue slightly in my drain line.

I am using pastel white with blue dye. I get a small amount of separation at the top of my res. It has to do with more of the particles falling out of suspension than anything else I believe. I haven't had any issues with it clogging my loop up and it goes away as soon as I start my PC up again. Remember that the pastel does use nanoparticles as well. I wouldn't be too worried about it unless it doesn't mix back up after turning it back on.

Well this is good to hear because I really didn't wanna have to deal with draining this huge PC again haha. I think ill still test the PH when I get the new tester up here just to make sure that its at normal levels, but other than that the separated color mixes right back up when I turn the PC on so I should be fine there.

My experiences with durelene using Pastel and later X1 have been not very good. Adv LRT did a better job.

Just got a new loop with Mayhems tubing and Adv LRT with white pastel extreme up and running.

How do you like Mayhem's new tubing? Better looking than Primochill's?
