The tube shouldn't be TOO restricting. Looks like you have a single DDC? Is that correct? If so, I'd add another DDC or replace it with a D5

I may think about adding a second pump to the mix. There is room there right next to the main pump. I am mainly just noticing the difference between when I had the flexible tube versus the acrylic. I am seeing much less movement in the reservior. That could also be due to how I have the input on the reservoir going in also. I'll see how things go a 10+ shipping fix is much easier than 80+ another pump top and another pack of fittings plus the acrylic. Making that connection from the pump to the Radiator was not the easiest, but I managed.

And yes I have 1 30cm UV light strip on the top of the case and then there are 6 4" Cold Cathode UV lights scattered around the rest of the machine. I may end up moving some of them or removing some of them. Certain parts are not as lit up as I would like them to be and I'm sure I can easily fix that.

I agree that most of the UV builds I have seen I have not been happy with cause to be honest they either have way too many lights or overpowering colors. The blue sleeving I am using is nowhere near as uv reactive as the old stuff I had but it does the job well and accents the glow from the green. The nice thing is that durring the day its mostly yellow since you can't see the UV effect when there is too much light.

Yes, just look in their cathodes, they are the UV ones. They also make led versions, but those are not as strong.

You will want one of Mayhems uv reactive fluids and clear tube as well

The Cold cathode lights are made my Logisys. Ya PPC or Frozen CPU will have them. Just look under Cold Cathode Florescent Tube or CCFL depending on the site you are looking at. They generally come in a 2 pack depending on the lenght. Longer ones in packs of 1. There is also UV LED lights but you have to be careful with LED lighting. It can create a washed out effect with the light where cold cathodes produce a more ambient light.

An example of my LED strip when it was brand new vs the cold cathodes I used to use in the previous revision of this build.

Hi all,
I am fairly new to water cooling and I'm about to set up my first LCed rig. I have bought 1 liter of Mayhems X1 Clear premix and was wondering in case it won't be enough liquid for me loop would it hurt to just add some distilled to fill it up (lets say around 100mil) or would X1 lose it's characteristics and I could run into algae or corrosion problems? Also is it important to do leak test / loop flush with distilled, drain it and then fill it with Mayhems premix or is it safe to use premix at start? Radiators were flushed from all the residue already.
Thanks for all the tips and answers.

As long as the rads were completely flushed, you will likely be ok to put it directly in. You always need to leak test the loop....always. I typically recommend running some DI water for the leaktest, then draining and putting your real fluid in, but you can leak test with your X1 if you need.

I do not recommend diluting the premix, however, the 100ml or less probably will not be too bad.

Thanks! You have a point, I just didn't know for sure since some say it's always best to flush your whole system before even running typical leak test.
I just don't know whether my 1 liter is enough or not. I have 360 XT45 and UT60 240 alphacool rads, EK CPU block and two EK GPU blocks for gtx670s with EK D5 pump 140res combo. I can't fathom how much liquid I need. My rough napkin math says I should be just ok. rolleyes.gif
Apologise for my cranky english, not my native language.
Ps. already in love with this forum. Possibly already additced to it biggrin.gif

Gonna be cutting it close with 1L....I'd buy a second bottle just to be safe. You can store them for like 3yr in the bottle and it is still ok.

And yes, this forum is very addicting thumb.gif

I'd suggest running w/ pure DW for a cupla days ..... then when ya ready to add the X1, drain and measure the amount that comes out and plan your mix accordingly.

I'd recommend against reusing the fluid..... I ran 5 gpm thru my rads for an hour each....what I didn't think of was screwing in ya fittings into your painted components results in both ya fittings and rads, shedding some pain flakes. If ya gonna put back, I'd filter it first..... but i don't see the point in trying to save 19 cents worth of distilled water.

I want to grab some Aurora from PPC or FrozenPC as part of a larger order but the news of a new and improved version has got me waiting. I wouldn't mind the wait except that as per Mayhem's last communication, the newer version will not be sold as such but instead just replace the older version of Aurora correct? That would leave me with no clear way of knowing exactly what I will be getting even if I wait.mad.gif
