I was thinking about lighting everything with UV lighting. I bought some of the Monsoon LED stop fittings and was going to add UV LEDs where I could to shine into the tubing. Both of my GPUs both have acrylic waterblocks with room for 2 3mm LEDs on each one. I bought some of the Darkside UV strips to help with the overall lighting, but I'd like to find some bright individual LEDs to light up the GPUs so the coolant can be seen running through. If anyone knows of the brightness individual UV LEDs, please let me know.

Another thought I had was to use white LED lighting everywhere with blue and white pastel colored coolant in each loop, but I'm not sure how much light would penetrate the pastel coolant, especially with the LED stop fittings, so they might not even be necessary. I could use white LEDs to light specific places in my case, and in the GPU waterblocks and my acrylic pump top so thee pastel coolant can be seen better. Also, all of my fans either have blue LEDs or white LEDs, but I've set them up with a switch so I can turn all the fan LEDs off while the fan continues to run.

I'm really on the fence about this. I've looked through numerous builds but still can't decide what to do. Hopefully, someone who's worked with builds with these types of lighting can chime in since I'm at a stopping point until I make a decision. This may seem anal, but after putting in a as many hours on this build that I have, I want everything to be perfect.

Hi, I've used single 5mm leds in few builds. I used both, uv and white. Good thing is you can point them anywhere you want and they are dirt cheap but the light beam is a bit narrow so you need few of them in your case and they need to be soldered to molex connector. Uv ones are quite nice, output light is almost invisible so they won't change the color of your case to purple but the uv effect is quite strong at the same time. I usually solder 5 of them with one molex connector, 10(2 sets) will,be plenty for standard size case.
I haven't got many good pics but hopefully this will help you deciding:








and now using 4 leds in the bottom of reservoir(d5 top), sorry only one picture:

I'm kinda leaning towards white LEDs now, after thinking about it more, with blue pastel in one loop and white pastel in the other loop. I have everything in a Caselabs TH10A, and I just bought a new MB, an Asus X99 Deluxe II, which Las some LED lighting on it, supposedly. I'll probably not use my acrylic chipset waterblock or my VRM waterblock since it looks like some of the LEDs are in the heatsink for the chipset. I have my 2 reservoirs mounted to a sheet of fluorescent blue acrylic, and I've drilled holes into the sides to insert LEDs, which create a blue glow behind my reservoirs.

From my experience working with UV, every UV light has a slightly different Hue to it and you end up needing many more to get the effect you're looking for. I thought about using both in different places, because I've installed 2 switches in a 120mm top for my case which I've hooked up to turn all the LEDs in my fans off. So using the switches and the 2 pin PCBs with 2 pin LEDs I could create 2 different looks. Where I want the most light is in my GPU waterblocks, so you can see the coolant flowing through them.

I'm just so indecisive. I guess I should look through some build logs.

Dose anyone have some photos of Mayhems X1 UV Purple in action i can't seem to find any on Google.

I've made my own purple by mixing pastel uv pink with few drops of blue dye. Uv effect is very weak comparing to previous pastel uv green or pastel uv white. Premixedpasteuv purple might be stronger but I wouldn't expect it to be, the color is too dark.

If I wanted to go for a copper coloured fluid, how do you think I could go about making it? (i.e. pastel style solid colour, but not Aurora).

I just learned that Mayhems makes their own soft tubing. It comes out to half the cost of the Advanced LRT that I have been using for my Pastel White coolant for a couple years now. Anyone use the mayhems tubing and have any thoughts on it? I found this review (http://www.xtremerigs.net/2016/02/05/extreme-rigs-soft-tubing-test/5/) and actually seems to well demonstrate the yellowing my tubing gets or even inherently has and was wondering if anyone else has experienced similar results.

I did use the Mayhems 3/8"-5/8" and i'm very very happy with it! It's also easy to install on the barb and to secure the compression ring compared to the Primo

Thanks! Yeah screwing a compression fitting onto the LRT turns my fingers raw as they slip on the fitting when I'm trying to wrench it around the tubing. From what I'm reasing the Mayhems is far more pliable.

used it with Mayhems pastel uv white. After few months of usi g no signs of dulling, yellowing and hardening whatsoever. Tubing is super cheap and great quality, someone actually has made over a year old testing using Primoflex and Mayhems tubing and Mayhems turned out to be much better product.
Keep in mind it has very slight bluish tint, it seems to fade out over time.
