Or try without flash, and in a darker room smile.gif

There's no flash, it's just the LEDs kinda wash out the tubing. I am actually making two more LED strips right now, one for near the res and one for behind the top radiator to shine down on the CPU block.

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!

Since the res has more fluid in it, it will look darker, that's always frustrated me, get the color I want in the res, but since the tubing is like 1/4 the fluid front to back looking at it, it doesn't have the same look, and once it's as dark as I want it in the tubes, it's way darker in the res. Ahhh life.

Edit: That's why I went to using Pastel, it's opaque so it doesn't "change" color depending on tube size.

Yeah pastel is nice. What do we think about a sky blue or aqua blue pastel? I'd like to avoid the obvious yellow pastel for my build.

Tubing has a certain rate of water absorption ... you can find the values on the MSDS for the product.....the lower the water absorption, the lower the amount of staining or discolorations. Here's a comparison of two different Tygon products. One is 29 times better than the other.





Acrylic tubing has 0 water absorption. I used about 100" of acrylic and two 3" sections of 2475 at the pump (vibration isolation)

I think it would look really good, but you would need to start with the Pastel White and add blue to make it the color you want.
post #4677 of 15365
That's the plan. I'm absolutely in love with this Ocean Blue dye, I'd use that on a pastel white base.

Yes that is what I'd do if you want pastel. You may need more dye depending on how much you have gone through now. Pastel takes a good bit of dye to color

I have more than half a bottle of dye left. I have no problem ordering more, it's pretty cheap and goes a long way. I think I need really close to 1 liter of fluid to fill my loop which is convenient for the pastel. So it should be smooth sailing. I might go ahead and order 2 bottles of concentrate though in case I decide to switch colors or add too much dye.

Everytime I see some rig with orange juice looks or Gatorade colors. I get so dam thirsty.
