Full instructions are supplied with the kit and if you look on youtube for"mayhems blitz cleaning system" you will find some simple guides.

 

Ok, got it. And if done correctly, how long would a Pastel coolant last without maintenance?

 

Also, if, say, you change waterblocks and have to drain your system, can you re-use Pastel coolants?

Pastel depending on which colour you use can last from 1 year to 4 to 5 years. Yellow is the hardest to keep followed by red and orange. The most stable colours are Blue and Green (better at keeping there colours). This is all dependant on Temps, Sun light and ambient temps in your country (its like playing roulette at times). All so what rads you use can effect coolants and how long they last. There is no differentiative answers.

Its always best to clean any new equipment no matter how new or how old it is.

My nephew's I think its sunset yellow going into 15-16 months, it looks as good as new and he used Blitz kit beforehand.

Even thou I don't use color coolants I only use DI with Biocide I use Blitz #2 about every 14-15 months to ensure cleanness of my system, it's not necessary but I know it does good job cleaning some accumulation of crap overtime, my systems temps are #1 and I took 1 of the blocks while ago to inspect the condition....Clean as new.

I made that annual maintenance of all my blocks and rest of the system e.g. tubing and such, again it's not necessary but I like my system to be in tip top condition, there is no reason taking any blocks apart ever, unless you know something big got stock in there e.g. plexi, flaking nickel plating or you got algae otherwise, Blitz does good job thumb.gifsmile.gif

Ok. I live in a tropical country (33-35C average ambient) so that might give me less time for the Pastel to hold ita color, but yeah I understand and this is good to know.

How about white, is its color hard to keep intact? And if I use Pastel Extreme I see that it's not compatible with the Primoflex Advanced LRT tubing. What then is the best tubing that is known to be compatible with the Extreme and has good reputation of not being cloudy in the long run?

Ref tubing you will get many people with many diffrent answers.

Me in this order for XT1 Nuke or XT1

Glass easy to work with but means more fittings to get it right. (we make our own) and you have alphacool version too.
Acrylic, E22 make some good ones.
Our soft tubing / Xspc / Apparently Daz mods / Darkside tubing (but we haven't tested that as of yet, awaiting samples), EK do a good black tubing i relay like think its called some thing like ZMT but not sure (im useless at name at the best of times).

For Rads

Plenty to choose from its down to your own personal taste.. 90% are good , 5% are out standing and 5% garbage. Just avoid any thing with so called sacrificial layers at all costs.

Hi @Mayhem

Regarding yours tubing, I'm planning to use yours UV White 13/10 soft tubing,not sure if you are not planning to do this UV tubing in other colors as I've seen them on other forums

Thanks, Jura

15-16 months thats fair time.. well its been almost 2 months since i used sunset pastel yellow in my system and i think it looks good as day one.. i did not use blitz, what i did was flush with distilled water and vinegar (70% - 30%) for 2 hours, repeat for one hour and then rinse 3 times with just distilled water.

day one


I will post more image in a month from now..

ps. i made a "ring led light" for my reservoir and it made my sunset yellow pastel look green and i did not like it so i had to removed mad.gif

Wow! that reservoir light looks pretty good, it looks as if you had UV coolant thumb.gif lets just hope that the excessive light wont have any advert effect on the coolants color, otherwise looks sweet thumb.gifthumb.gif
