Ah thank you, does anyone else have another opinion? I heard that the silver coil would speed up the eventual-conductive property of water, would it be fine to add in to the (Blue Berry Pastel) coolant? (not sure if it is any different then the Mint Pastel xD)

What's the best method to clean out the system before using mayhems? Currently running distilled and silver.

Is there a grey or dark grey coolant in the works?

And as for the Pastel range, it will not let any light through, or absolutely minimal at the best.

You can add other Mayhems dyes to the Pastel range as well to create a one of a kind colour.

So I am going to be running some pastel soon and are you suggesting the de mineralised is better?

Also I was planning on trying to lighting up my res with the pastel in it and was thinking of:

White LED lighting up Pastel Blueberry liquid

OR

UV LED lighting up UV Blue/Pastel Blueberry

Would either of these lighting options work?

Mayhems Ultra Pura H2O is best, but other then that they will all work the same.

The biggest thing is to make sure the system is cleaned out and flushed well before use. Also check the PH.

As for trying to get a lighting effect in Pastel, it will not work. I can hold my LED LENSER P5 on one side of my res. and see absolutely nothing on the other side.

The Pastels are a solid colour. Thats what makes them so vibrant.

hmm ok ok fair enough. I will flush the system extremely well before use and probably wont check the PH because I dont know how (assuming go to a local pool store or something to do it and get the kit) Was just curious because I have had serious problems with plasticizer before and yes that is the tubing but always wondered if it had to do with liquid as well. I guess I wont be trying to light up the Pastels then I love the look of them because they are so solid just thought it would have been cool to get a glowing solid color biggrin.gif Thanks for your help thumb.gif

I ran boiling water and a bit of vinegar through my rads. 1 part vin to 10 parts water. Cleaned all my fittings and acrylic tubing by soaking them then rinsing with distilled water. Put system together and ran some distilled then drained and added coolant.

Wouldve been fine if I had used the right right type of water which isn't distilled.

Everyone has there own way of cleaning just take your time.

Mix white and black together.

DO NOT use distilled. Only deionized. I read Di on the bottled and assumed it was distilled. I had an extremely flushed and clean system. At least my coolant reacted badly with distilled. Anyways this was supposed to be Pastel Pure Black.

Hey Fellow British Columbiaian (is that a word? doesnt matter tongue.gif ) This is quite interesting looking maybe good for noctua build? biggrin.gif Anyways I hope you were able to solve what ever problems you were having there and I think I will try and find myself some Deionized water instead thumb.gif

You should be able to get a PH testing kit from any good supermarket or hardware store. Some people also get a PH testing strips that are cheaper but harder to find IMO. They all do the same thing thumb.gif

I have seen great builds around the place using the Pastels with well placed lighting.

Side note: If I am not mistaken plasticize will occur when temperatures reached are high or extreme in both directions, UV light (natural forms) high levels and a high PH level is reached. I also believe the levels required are different for every brand. I think thinking.gif
