I don't believe that the acrylic would be effected by coolant regarding staining. And ANY coolant that is colored COULD stain flexible tubing, the red and blue colors tend to do that more.

I have used the Pastel Red for a couple of years now, and have not had any issues with it in my system running Primochill Advanced LRT. thumb.gif

Pretty sure that caution dates back to the original Primochill LRT, before the "Advanced" version hit the market. Or was that plasticizer concerns? I've slept since then. smile.gif

Yeah, I'm fairly certain it's for the old Primoflex Pro as well.

Does Mayhem's make a corrosion inhibitor? Like in a little dropper to use with my distilled water? Or do I just need to get one of his coolants?

I use the Biocide Extreme currently.

The others are correct, The warning applies the the Primochill PRO LRT as that tubing had major politicized problems. The Primochill Advanced LRT is now the recommended soft tube. Dyes can still strain, but the plasticizer problems haven't been there with Advanced like it was with PRO.

Now, if you want rigid acrylic, you have nothing to worry about. There is nothing in acrylic that can react with the fluid. There's no plasticizer since it is rigid (plasticizer is what is added to the tube to make it more flexible).

Will do, waiting for a lot of other stuff, aswell, though (1350W PSU, Gentle Typhoon, and NoiseBlocker fans and some more WC and sleeving parts)
Try adding a few more drops? Maybe the problem is that the camera is not picking it up, perfectly, but the RES is quite a bit darker!
Oh, and a black, and yellow backplate would look SO sexy!

I think his lighting is the cause of the camera not picking it up....
I'd try putting some light behind the top rad to light the mobo up and the tubes a bit wink.gif
