Hey thanks man. Looks like it will be a good read. Repped!!

The tube test with the glycol based XT-1 coolant will be ending sometime in the next week and a final update posted with the pictures.

A new test will start though thumb.gif
- this time with NON glycol based coolant so I can comment freely about both tube types instead of having to bite my tongue and hold back because the Advanced LRT is not recommended for use with glycol based coolant tongue.gif

Will be interested in your findings.

I have been running a glycol mix [around 6% glycol the rest distilled] with Advanced LRT for approx 18 months now and all I have noticed is that the tubing has hazed over ever so slightly as compared to a new piece. So far it seems to have held up ok in my rig.

So, what exactly does glycol coolant do to the tubing? Is that the cause of the discoloration in the first test? Does it eat the tubing?

I ask because i am using it with my Aurora coolant. And i am pretty sure Aurora uses glycol.

I'm not sure if it would react any differently than EG or not, but it's not regular ol' EG that is in the Aurora.

Wiuld be nice to know what the "undesirable effect" is. If it is just discoloring I am not too worried. I will just change it out later. But if it is something that can cause failure of the tubing, I would want to change things out sooner. I dont get why people are so vague about stuff like this.

Love the article. great read. i was going to get the primo Chill but after seeing a side by side comparison.. that yellow tint is killing it for me. ive already changed my mind. im rooting for the mayhems now.. can wait to see the outcome though! thumb.gif

Not normally a UV guy, but think this is going to be happening in my current build

Using dark blue so the fluid is still blue when lighting effects are off. Then I'm using uv clear blue for the UV effect


Since I'm using metal tubing, the res is there only spot where the fluid is visible. This will allow me to accent the fluid with the UV effect and not have to make my entire case purple

That fluid does look great in the UV. How many drops did it take starting with the dark blue fluid?
