Thanks for your quick reply. I wish I knew that last week when I made my purchase, I would have bought the pre-mix.

I'll see if I can get a picture up later tonight when I'm home so you guys can see what I'm talking about, the concentrate version looks nothing like the picture!

Here is what the premixed looked like. Pretty darn close to the color advertised.

I'm rebuilding my rig and wanted to use the Mayhems Pastel Red coolant. This is my first time using Mayhems coolant.

I purchased the coolant around April of last year, it has a manufacture date of January 2015. So I thought maybe it was just old coolant even though it has been stored in a cool, dry and dark place all this time.

I decided to buy more of the Pastel Red, the X1 Red, and the new Pastel Extreme in White with some dyes. I received the coolants late last week, the Pastel Red was manufactured in April 2015, so the coolant I just bought is almost a year old and it looks just the same as the first batch I have.

I mixed up the X1 Red and it's too dark, so not going to use that either.

I mixed up half of the Pastel Extreme White, added 12 drops of Red dye, and just have pink fluid now. I added 12 drops of the Deep Red dye, still just have pink color. I'll dump all the dye in there if I need to, but I want a red color like it shows on the Pastel Red picture. I also have Blue dye.

Can anyone give me direction from here. I need RED!


Blood red needs some blue dye:

Yes it is. But like all non conductive fluids it will come conductive over time due the minerals and metals throughout the build.

I have been running my pastel liguid for a quite a while now and i am thinking of cleaning my system.
There was some talking in Finnish pc-forum of white residue from pastel coolants, has anyone had problems with it?
I have noticed earlier when upgrading my system that there is a little of that residue in fittings.

Any hints that how should i clean my system or is it just flushing it few times with clean distilled water?
Also i am thinking of getting a whole new coolant, perhaps X1 is my choice with some non staining blue dye,

edit. just found my old order of the pastel and it is almost 3 years old, so perhaps its time to change it.
