This is why even out quad pass rads fail.

Ah, I see, so it's tubes protruding into the chambers that creates problems then, like in the pic?


I guess I assumed since the Phobya Extreme 480 uses the same chambers as the Phobya G-Changer it would work all the same. :/

Time to start shopping for a different coolant idea then. biggrin.gif

My pH level looks like its at 4. Do I need to add more Mayhems Biocide to get to the 6-8 range or does 4 mean there's too much in there to begin with?

Copper sulphate will increase the acidity, meaning it will lower your Ph. 4 is pretty low....

You want a Ph between 6.5 and 8....

So just for clarification, I need to drain and flush, then fresh distilled water?

@Fakeblood, looks awesome

Maybe it is the photo, but I'd maybe make the purple a touch darker so it shows up in the tubes a little better

I have added a bit more after taking those photos. The first one was only 2 drops, have about 5 now

That's most likely the case, but let's see if anyone has any clever ideas.

Argh, loving the purple pastel and dye x).
It's a bit weird that I'm drawn to purple so often but whatever ^^.
It's those sort of colors that'll make you go dual loops when you really had no intention to smile.gif.

If I do another build or somehow the computer I'm going to build for a friend end ups under water I won't be able to resist the pastel purple biggrin.gif
