Honestly, I think you'll find that pastel and UV red are hard to pull off.

This is meant to be pink, so it's not the best example, but you can see when he adds the pastel it just about completely deadens the UV effect.



To me the most striking examples of UV red come from UV red tubing.

Isn't UV pink dye toxic? or is that orange, I forget. Mick said one of them is toxic so they don't sell it.

hey,

I am about to start my watercoolig project and wanted some advice on one matter before going ahead:

I will be using the UV Lime Yellow Pastel mix and will be adding to this some Pastel Mint Green concentrate to get it to turn green.

I am looking to get some sort of UV light inside the case to react with the coolant. I was looking into the Phobya uv led strip, but I noticed some people complaining that it fades the UV inside some Mayhems coolants. I just wanted to check before buying the lights.

If so, can someone recommend something else? Would prefer LEDs, but can be ok with cathodes.

Darksides UV leds are hands down the best I think. I have them myself and never had any issues with them.thumb.gif

Not in my current setup, I use UV tubing and Ek blue UV coolant. That said, Darkside leds are generally well regarded by people around here I think. Maybe you can wait for someone who uses them with Mayhem dyes if you have concerns.

alright, so you use it with some sort of uv coolant, and there's no sign of fading?

UV coolant will always fade over time. People add new UV dye to boost it back up again.

Darksides UV LEDs are great (i use them), but for that true black light effect, need cold cathodes. Any other type give a lot more color and a lot less UV.
