post #2201 of 15411
I've been a distilled + biocide + kill coil for years now but I think I'm finally ready to take the plunge and go for Mayhem's Pastel Ice White. So to transition from distilled water to the pastel ice white, do I have to make sure my loop is bone dry or can there be trace amounts of water? I've got a drain at the bottom of my loop but naturally, that wont drain out ALL of the water. How does pastel, say 2 liters of pastel ice white behave when mixed with 1 cup of water?

Will it dilute out the coolant and make it look funky?

I suppose it will decimate all other fluids? (sure you might have put some acid in it to eat away any remains of other coolants smile.gif )

@Syan48306 you can dilute pastel white a small amount extra , it wont harm the liquid. How ever if you been running a biocide i really do recommend you flush you system with at least DI water so that there is no acid left in the system. Pastel is very much dependent on a balanced PH system.

Edit: Some more info. I used the XT coolant and distilled water. The whole system holds around 3 liters of water and like I said the reservoir looks beautiful, but the water in the tubing took quite a while to get to the right deep red color, and it appears to be lighter now after running it for a week and a half. I don't have any other sensors but, my CPU temps are in the 30's.

this should just be settling then. XT1 has PH balancers in the system so the "red" dye should not be effected. It will calm down but if there is any change over the next few weeks let us know and we will look further into it.

Thanks for the quick reply. I will add some more dye to the system and get it back to the correct color this evening. I will let you know if it continues.

About clouding in tubing.

1 month ago I emptied my water cooling setup because of cluoding and I wanted to clean the tubes.
I cleaned all tubes with a detergent for dishes and with a small brush (I made that before using the tubes , but clouding appeared)

I cleaned one piece of tube with a detergent degreaser (small amount).

Now a month passed and I have clouding that make the pastel Change color (it is more pink than red) but not in that tube!

1 Drop of dead water per liter of distilled water and the 1 drop is only 5% copper II sulfate. Is a full flush really necessary or is a partial drain and and refill of distilled water + coolant "good enough"

How does pastel coolants behave in imbalanced PH conditions and or biocide?

EDIT: I'm thinking about draining about 1 of the 2 liters and then adding just 500ml concentrate ice white and topping it off with distilled water.

Pastel can fade and drop out with bad PH liquids. This is the same with a lot of nano fluids.

For any one interested. There was a batch of liquids ive messed up. So we have changed it to X1 + emerald green and made it UV active. Now the problem is we do not sell this product at all.. so instead of binning it as its a perfectly good fluid were giving it away.

The Fluid is X1 UV Emerald Green 250ml Concentrate

To get it, leave me a message here and ill PM the details across how to get you hands on it.

YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY POST AND PACKING ONLY.

The fluid, bottle, child safety cap, sticker, work done on it is all free ...

250ml concentrate will make 3 Ltrs of X1 fluid.

If you do not like the colour you will not be refunded, you cannot swap it for another colour as you are not paying for the product, you are just paying for shipping. We will make no money by sending you this item and we are doing it at cost to mayhems as we could have just binned the whole batch instead.

this is the colour -
