So I'm looking for a blue coolant for my loop and was considering the blue xt-1 concentrate. Using petg and copper blocks. anything I need to worry about?

Pretty sure the Concentrates all require Distilled water to make it the right mix. Other Than that, No.

just FYI I got x1 blue concentrate and was kinda disappointed in the color. Compared to the green I also got it was very weak and lightly colored. I've got some pics in my sig but I'll link some when I'm not mobile.

Not saying it isn't great stuff! But you may want to consider adding some dye if you're going for a particular color.

And like tco said, you'll need some distilled water to mix it with but it should play nice with the petg and copper. I had mine running through petg and copper without issue (wasnt a very long time but I'm sure it's good)

Last week I upgrade my PC from soft tubing to hard PETG tubing.
While doing this I also got Mayhems X1 Red concentrate. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Everything seemed fine. I went away for 3 days so my PC was not running. When I came back I turned it on and pump was not working. I tested pump with external 12v PSU that I use for filling and it did not work either.
Next morning I took it apart, cleaned everything in it and tested - it worked fine.
I put it back in the system and filled. It worked again. At this point I setup notification in Speedfan to inform if Pump is not working and to turn off the PC if CPU or GPU overheats.
So I was playing Witcher 3 today and I got message that PC will turn off in 1min. Checked temps and GPU was at 67C. Saved game and rebooted pc.
On boot notifications that pump is not working kept spamming.
Tried to run only pump with external PSU but no luck.

Previously I ran only distilled water with kill coil.
Is there any way that Mayhems X1 could have done something to the impeller on the pump? It is DDC pump. When I took it apart it did not look clogged up.
I have another DDC pump so I will replace the pump to see if that helps.
Has anyone experienced something like this?

I had similar issue with my Watercool D5 pump and I only run distilled water. It would run 1 day, stop the next. I took it apart and nothing was noticeable all clean.
Watercool Heatkiller send me a replacement and problem is gone. It's an indication that there is internal issue, nothing to do with liquid 90% of the time, even thou your pump might be new, they do go bad more often these days.

Really struggling to find an answer, I'm looking for the best method to create an 'Nvidia' green aurora coolant. Mayhem used to do a green aurora called 'Extinction Green' on youtube it looks pretty close but on 'frozenCPU' it looks like sludge. I keep making baskets on the Mayhems store and OCUK then at the end of each day bail on purchase as I'm not convinced which will be the better way. So I'm putting it to you guys. Which Method do you think will net me the best result.

METHOD 1:
  • Aurora 2 Silver 1ltr
  • Dye Yellow 15ml
  • Dye Blue 15ml

Add equal drops of both dyes to the silver aurora until green, then add more yellow dye to bring it up to the nvidia hue.


METHOD 2:
  • Aurora 2 Silver 1ltr
  • Emerald Green 15ml
  • Dye Yellow 15ml


Add Emerald Green drop to Aurora silver until green, add yellow to lighten to nvidia hue.

METHOD 3:
  • Pastel - Mint Green Coolant 1L
  • 2x 10ml Aurora Booster - Silver
  • Dye Yellow 15ml
  • Dye Blue 15ml

Add booster to pastel then add yellow/blue until I find correct color.


Anyone else have a suggestion? @Mayhem?

Hey Joe,

I would go with option 3. Using the Aurora as a base, than dying it doesnt responded the same as a pastel base. Also, use the Aurora booster last.

Many thanks, I've followed your suggestion and placed my order with Mayhems. Hopefully it'll get sent out tomorrow and be with me Friday, in time for some mixing fun over the weekend. Fingers crossed I'll kick off the log tomorrow, it'll be in my sig soon after.

Blitz is great cleaner and now I use it annually to keep my system sparkle clean, but it needs to be totally gone out of your system and that means you need to run your pumps at full speed for at least 20-30 min each time before flashes, radiators will hold back more of the liquid than you realize and that means some of the blitz could have been still trapped there, especially because is so foamy.

I remember when blitz first came out and I used it to clean my huge single loop I had flashed it at least 6x 4 Liters of DI after blitzing, yet I still had some similar foam on the top of reservoir, but what you see should go away without harming your coolant, unless there is still good amount of Blitz in radiators.

Btw. That red is gorges.
If that small amount of foam won't be an issue I will most definitely leave it alone. I was worrying that part 2 would cause a reaction somewhere. If I turn off the loop then a tiny amount floats back up to the top, it's interesting and I've thought about using a paper towel to remove the top layer of foam. I really like how blitz can clean a loop but part 2 is a nightmare to remove.

Funny you mentioning paper towel. I did try to use it to clean some white flakes floating in my reservoir after using Dazmode Protector only to find some particles of that paper towel somehow braking apart and I had more issues removing that.

How good Blitz 2 is....very good and I wish I had prior pictures of my water with Dazmode Protect or PT nuke, it was cloudy after a month, I've been using Mayhems Biocide Extreme for a about 2 years and this water is about close to 4 months old, I'm about to change, but even on the picture it's not as clear as if you look in real time but believe me is as clear as can be, Blitz as a cleaner and Biocide combination with water is truly great, for my next build I might use black oil pastel.







e in description on the bottle


Check this block that used for about 2 years with distilled water and biocide extreme and just before taking apart I used Blitz to shampoo it, it's like brand new and this thing was working hard 24/7 for almost 2 years.
Trick is, you have to remove and that means flash it more than its recommended
