Is there a corrosion blocker I can safely use in conjunction with distilled water and Biocide Extreme? Like this for example? Feser Base - Corrosion Blocker

Or....since this is the Mayhems thread ..... can get them all together

I've been looking at that and the white pastel. I use the ocean blue dye and have quite a bit left so draining and refilling with a coolant isn't a problem.

But the million dollar question, what would look cooler in my build? A hand mixed sky or aqua marine blue pastel, the X1 clear plus ocean blue to look exactly like the aqua blue clear I currently use, or maybe even the Pure Black Pastel? I want to avoid the yellow, it looks cool but I think I have enough yellow.

Fesser corrosion inhibitor is going to be primarily ethylene glycol, while Biocide Extreme is going to be primarily copper sulphate.... CuSo4 (Copper(II)Sulphate) doesn't work with any glycol based additive... It causes in the infamous gunk... So unless you want to be cleaning thick glutenous gunk out of your loop I would NOT.

Even if it was advisable it would be counter productive. Biocide extreme is used for people who want to use as little additives as possible in order to milk performance. Almost any corrosion inhibitor additive will have ethylene glycol, which will decrease performance and act as a biocide on its own.

Go with Mayhems X1, performs identically to distilled water and comes in tons of different colors, including clear, and has all the different corrosion inhibitors, biocides, and surfactants you need.

I'd go with a dark blue/purple, maybe dark blue with UV purple. Either way I wouldn't go pastel with that build, I think transparent would look nicer.




Complimentary colors. If there's anything my 4 art classes from HS had taught me it's never use the complimentary color when more than two colors are the focus, use the colors very near the complimentary color, in whichever direction matches the rest of the art piece.

That would be dark blue/purple. It would contrast the yellow, and vice versa, without sticking out like a sore thumb, and would blend into the background very well without going unnoticed.

I could go with X1 clear for sure. No problem supporting more Mayhem's products, I just wasn't sure if there was a safe way to add corrosion protection to the current mix.

Anyway, if I have to drain and refill I need help deciding on X1 clear and ocean blue or making some lighter blue pastel. Both would look potentially sweet (well I already know clear looks sweet, see two posts up for my build) but Pastel could be pretty sick too. Sigh, decisions decisions...


EDIT: Just saw your second post. I happen to love the color purple, so that's an idea. I'd rather mix my own though. I'll check mayhem's line-up of dyes at my preferred retailers (FCPU and PPCs)

I feel pastel works best when you're trying to match the color of a theme, or make the coolant the highlight of the loop. Correct me if I'm missing something, but the only reason you're using blue is to compliment the yellow... I don't see any other blue in there. Pastel would stand out a LOT, and draw attention away from the rest of the build since nothing else is blue. So yeah, I'd go with X1 clear, and dye it medium/dark blue, perhaps a little purplish if you want to be adventurous.

Yeah I want it to go well with the yellow but wanted to avoid the obvious choice of yellow pastel because I feel that would just be overbearing. I'll mull it over, I think I could just fill up with X1 and then think about colors for a bit. I just keep seeing people with nickel plated blocks and copper rads get into trouble lately and I have no protection right now.

EDIT: Do you think the X1 Deep Purple would be too purple? Should I just get some X1 clear and bottle of purple dye instead?

Then I can call it purple drank and make a rap video!

I'd go with clear and dye it purple, or you could get X1 clear, and X1 purple, put 125ml of each in a bowel, and 1.75 liters in, and mix it all together if you want to be silly. biggrin.gif

You said you still have blue dye, so no need to factor in getting that. I'd definitely go blue/purple though, and not just purple. When mixing I'd START with purple, and just add blue incrementally till you get a nice tone... Pure purple would contrast too much with the yellow and draw attention away from the rest of the computer.

Edit: IN A BOWL. XD Can't stap laughing. Do NOT put them in a bowel. Damn autocorrect. yessir.gif

I am going to say to get the clear X1 and then dye it. Like ZytheEKS was saying, a pastel would stand out too much.

I personally like the light blue, but I think a dark (perhaps navy) blue or a purple would look good too
