I think you should let it sit for like...5 minutes or so? If you have a spare pump you could just run it for a period of time and then install it I would assume.

Personally I just set up the loop next to my sink and let it run in a loop for a few minutes, the components are all out of my loop anyways..... I haven't tried it just by letting it sit, but it would probably work all the same you just might need to play the maracas with it and shake it up.

I wasn't able to achieve the color I wanted with my X1, mostly because I had to use the X1 Clear that I had previously dyed purple for a previous build to fill up my loop.

I was going to order more but I remembered I have an entire bottle of XT-1 in possession. I know it's meant for sub-ambient but could I use it just as regular ambient air coolant? And how much do I dilute it? Would it have any negative effects with a system that's been running X1 and contains brass, copper, and nickel?

XT-1 works fine at normal temps. 5% XT-1 is the minimum concentration if i remember correctly, it will also have a LOT of corrosion protection, so not it shouldn't have problems with those metals, in fact it should prevent problems with those metals. XD

Okay so if my loop takes about 2000mL then I would need 100mL of XT-1 minimum?

If there were a small trace of X1 coolant left in the loop would that cause problems? I can drain my loop about 95% with ease. That last little bit requires me to break it all down.

I wouldn't think it would be an issue, as long as there isn't any CuSo4 left over in the loop from a previous fill so if you used I&H Deadwater, PT Nuke, Mayhems Biocide Extreme, or any of those copper sulphate things I'd do a thorough flush before adding XT1. Yeah 100ml would probably be sufficient for 2 liters, though were I you I'd throw in the entire 150ml bottle because why not. biggrin.gif

Hmm okay well I overestimated how much coolant I needed. I did 2500mL of DI with the 150mL bottle of XT-1 and used about half of it filling the loop. Then I added Ocean Blue dye until I got the color I wanted. Looks pretty good!

If/when I decide to match the coolant to the fan blades it looks like I will need White Pastel and Blue dye. Ocean blue has a little green to it, a beautiful color but not for this application.

Why are you going from X-1 to XT-1?

The X1 was too purple because I had to mix it to get a full loop with stuff I had already used. The XT-1 was just sitting there so I decided to use it and start with a blank canvas.
