back on topic; I used Mayhems clear tubing 16/10mm with Barrow fittings. Not possible to pull the tube out of the fitting, great combo.

45 is only high if you take into account other variables, such as:
1. Ambient temps for a room without air conditioner and Sydney summer. The room reaches 30c~33c easily.
2. Cooling 2 x R9 290 OC edition - on air, these GPU's core reach to 90c~95c on full load (I use 3 monitors). on Water cooling, they both don't pass 67c. That's quite an improvement.
3. Cooling i7 3770K @ 4.7Ghz
4. I have restrictive air flow because my case is under my PC desk, so the heat is circulating back to the case unfortunately.
5. The 45c figure is after 2 hours of gaming.

It's not ideal at all, but on air cooling the GPU's will throttle.

I do hope Mayhems ultra clear tubing won't leach because I haven't seen a test at 45 degrees, which is usually when leaching starts to occur.

I don't think you understand what you're buying there is nothing to leech from mayhems tubing and pretty sure nothing leeches from advanced LRT either unless someone can correct me. There has been several cases of people getting pro LRT by accident from distributes.

Oh, I didn't say there is a leeching from Mayhems tubing.. not at all. I haven't tried them yet, but I did buy them and I am going to use them in my upcoming build.
I simply had the misfortune of getting twice leeching problems with EK Primochill Primoflex Advanced LRT

I've got a question. If your currently using mayhem's X1 and want to use pastel if there is a residual amount of X1 left in the system will it interfere with pastel? Or is it safe to combine the two liquids?

Planning on paste red/white.

It's X1 CLear and UV Clear blue the current coolant.

Ideally you would do thurough clean and rinse of your loop parts. Personally I like to disassemble my blocks, scrub em with distilled water, rinse my rad, then use Mayhems cleaning products to ensure ive dissolved and flushed any residual ANYTHING before adding fresh coolant to minimize contaminants. Even since im going for pastel to fresh pastel. If you are using dyes of any kind a proper flush is very reccomended as it tends to get stuck in the rads. It took two yearly cycles of flushing and using fresh pastel before mine stopped taking on a blue tint. I previously used xt-1 concentrate and blue dye.

Just thought I would post in my new club and share some of my thoughts. I recently did a TT Core P5 build with a 560mm Monsta rad(rad cleaned with vinegar and hot water), Raystorm Pro CPU block, Ek Supremacy GPU block, Bitspower 400ml reservoir, Durelene tubing, (as recommended by trusted people here), and lastly a EK improved D5 pump.

For this build I choose to try out the new Mayhems Aurora 2 Red, My first impressions were WOW! Truly looks incredible. Now going into this project I was well aware of that the Mayhems Aurora line was intended to be used temporarily, but the 2nd iteration of it was supposedly better with smaller particles, i.e less chance of them falling out of the solution and getting lodged somewhere in the system. I wanted to to see if i could keep the cool looks and run it permanently. I designed my loop with high flow and low restriction in mind to ensure that the particles never really get a chance to settle anywhere and even if they did the high flow and turbulence of the water would get them moving again.

Given what I got I feel things turned out perfect. In comparing my builds to others I have seen, I notice that my water seems to be much more violent and turbulent, which i would attribute to the low restriction/highflow design and having a better version of the already awesome D5 pump. Time will tell whether I am right or wrong, but I remain very confident because I put the time and thought into dealing with some of the fluids shortcomings and handicaps.

I apologize for the potato camera.

That's exactly my reaction WoW!!
Love the auroras effect and you chose nice color I think the size of your rez makes additional reason for its total WoW look thumb.gif

I urge you to go hard tubing, if you ever decide to, don't go with PETG thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif in a long run it still absorbs liquid, do it once and forget it, go with acrylic or glass

@Fifth Horseman nice! Always glad to see another aurora build! Looks like you've make a good setup for it from what i can see. I'd love to see a little clip of it in motion! What kind of d5 are you using? D5s or something?

I've gotten away from aurora for the time being but I'll be back soon!

Seems Mayhems products have evolved a bit and I've missed it. Is there a difference between the Pastel Extreme White and the Pastel White Premix aside from concentrated vs ready to use? I just use the premix for the hassle free plain white look without needing to measure water vs additive. Is the Extreme is better?

it's meant to be better and more advanced. Also it's more white(bluish tint) and you cannot mix it with dyes or other pastels.
