They are not going to disclose the actual ingredients due to legal issues I guess for wanting to keep that private.

I know there are threads where people have used it with no problems but have said it made their tubing a little stiffer after the 24 hour rinse. It is supposed to clean and flush out any flux or buildup. Others have said it does indeed clean their parts quite well without having to take apart and even gets some gunk they couldn't get. However, I haven't used it myself and it's one of those things that is a personal choice. If you have or see issues with your system that may need cleaning it wouldn't hurt, otherwise not really important to use.

Actually they have a legal right to disclose the msds sheets if requested. How ever like you ive only heard good things about it. The only question is. Is it dangerous ?. if not that's fantastic.

@Radmanhs add blue. Water down 1 drop of blue and then slowly add the water down blue to shade the red.

Remove your drivebay cages since you are running SSDs, and mount your 360 vertically in that spot-it will look very neat.

Good job though.

Seriously though-the radiator could be mounted vertically after removal of the HDD cage, the most he might have to do is very slight Dremel work to accommodate the tank part of the rad which will be on top, so as to facilitate very easy connection to the bay res.


Update: Ok i was intrigued, cause i like the Fractal cases-so i did some home work, a 360 wont fit in there vertically unless you remove everything in the front, so its a no go, but it will easily fit a Monsta 240 radiator-food for thought perhaps tongue.gif

240-Something like what this guy did http://www.overclock.net/t/1103478/custom-loop-cpu-cool-in-fractal-r3

or this guy did 280 (scroll down a bit ) http://www.overclock.net/t/838683/fractal-design-case-club/3820

R3/R4 practically no difference in measurements.


So, pushpull configuration radiator tank up top & connection to the bay reservoir will be a cinch.



Im seriously thinking of getting this little beauty:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M8URy-WKm_4

Anyway, my apologies for going off topic rolleyes.gif

Hey, been a while since I posted, forgot to check back.
First of all thanks Mayhem for the reply. Is there any way that I can "undilute" the coolant, perhaps by boiling some of the water off?
If I leave the coolant to settle in a bottle, will the active ingredients: biocides, anticorrosives, nanoparticles etc settle to the bottom allowing my to pour the upper layer off and concentrate those ingredients?

So from what I've read, externally mounted radiators have better performance than internally mounted ones. Also, a big factor was my case choice (I also have a CM ATCS840 that can mount a 360 internally). The cooling system is so efficient that I haven't needed to turn the radiator fans on since I've bought it. Load temps go into the mid to high 40s C. This is with the D5 pump set at setting 1 and thats just incredible in my book. I don't plan on using internally mounted radiators unless I upgrade to a Caselabs SM5/8.

Hey guys, about to pull the trigger on a huge loop including some Mayhems Pastel Mint Green. I really like the look of clear tube with opaque fluid, however I would like to have it a little bit darker (more of an emerald/foresty green). What is the best way to get this result?

Also, interested in the results of that SysPrep stuff too, I was trying to find the best way to clean out my loop prior to putting the Mayhems in.

EDIT: Nevermind, google turned up that which OCN search could not earlier in this thread, add blue dye to make it darker.

The deep purple dye can achieve that very easily. That's what i use.

NO. The dyes / coolant will not.

Plastic-sizer (not sure about spelling) is the main reason for systems having problems.


This is the reason behind people hunting for the magical tubing that does not gunk up. And the dis-coloring thing as well. thumb.gif

@billdcat4 no the premix is a active coolant so if you boil it, it will no longer work.

@Scorpion49 Yes you just add blue dye smile.gif.

@Killa Cam Yes just add Purple and it can still be translucent.

can I add mayhems pastel white to distilled water to increase the amount of solution while keeping and not diluting the white colour?

I believe No, But you can run it slightly more concentrated.

Ok. If I buy another 250mL bottle of concentrate, I should be able to mix it with some of the diluted coolant to increase its concentration.

Assuming my coolant is at half of the optimal concentration (.5M) and I want to dilute it to the optimal concentration (1M): X is the volume of diluted coolant that I need to add to .25L of concentrate
since the .25L of concentrate is meant to be mixed with .75L of water, the concentrate concentration should be 4M.

( X(.5M) + .25(4M) )/ (X + .25) = 1M
.5X + 1 = X + .25
.75 = .5X
X = 1.5L
So adding .25L of concentrate to 1.5L of my diluted coolant should produce 1.75L of coolant with the optimal concentration

Additionally, since my current tubing is the plasticizer XSPC tubing, I'll likely buy a 10ft pack of durelene from Amazon. Thanks for the excellent support.
