Hey man. It is now! I have since drained the chocolate milk and mayhem have been ever so kind as to replace my coolant. At safeway the deionized is right next to distilled so you should have no trouble tracking it down.

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

hmm Okay I will take a look around the markets to see if I can find a tester, what is the PH supposed to be? I am still determined to light up the pastel in the res just gonna have to find another way. I do run a small loop but my temps are quite normal (I think) so I dont think my plasticizer would have came from that. I am trying out some tygon E-1000 I think it was this time around so hopefully that works out thumb.gif

Stupid question alert: which PH do you test? The final coolant in the system or water in the system used to flush it. If its the coolant, what do you do if the PH is off the mark since Mayhems site says not to add their biocide to any of the premixes.

We have a safeway near by, I never go to it. Wish I had read this before I bought more distilled water. Good thing its only a buck per jug.

Stupid answer ALERT: Test the water you are flushing with, I pressure test the loop with my distilled water, and test that.

As for the correct PH, it is PH7. thumb.gif

Awesome build man. You packed that thing! Glad I saw this I want to watercool an s3 without a pedestal. What HDD cover is that?

Thanks! The HDD cover is a Scythe Himuro...thumb.gif I had to make a custom bracket to get it to fit in the S3 (It's in my build log.)

Just noticed these white bits in my reservior (using red pastel) anyone know what they are? The fluid is around 3 weeks old.

What fluid were you using before and did you flush/clean out your loop before filling it? Could be gunking peeling off if not
