And if you don't already know shipping hazardous materials in the US the MSDS sheets are required to be on the outside of the package.

AND on another note. I am back to the same issue with my UV Lime Yellow Coolant. Maybe its residual plasicizers in my loop that I didn't clean out properly, but I cannot be sure. I drained the loop and filtered the coolant through coffee filters multiple times. It looks the same as the day it went into my system when I got my replacement bottles. So I am sure the coolant itself is not contaminated and causing any discolorations. But something chalky is building up on my tubing. Last weekend I drained and cleaned everything out. I flushed the entire system with a vinegar solution, then with a bicarb solution. Which was fun to watch at first cause I didn't drain 1 of my blocks completely(remember those volcano science projects?). Then I ran plain distilled for 2 hours then drained and repeated 4 times. Then I refilled the system with the pastel.

Here are a few pics of the acrylic tubing with the buildup. It has a SLIGHTLY green tint to it but as the coolant is yellow/green that is expected. And as stated before it is chalky, which I noticed maybe cyphon said the pastel can leave in your system. And then a pic of the res as it sits right now. The buildup is already starting again. One thing I noticed before I drained it was that if I would leave the fill port on the top of the res open that the buildup effectively stopped. For weeks I noticed it get worse and worse, then I ran it with the fitting on the top open enough to let pressure out and the buildup at least in the res visibly stopped. I run a Swiftech MCP-35X at around 2700 RPM and rarely does it go above or below that speed.











I'm the guy you gave this as a sample to before it was released. And due to the post below I haven't had the cash to send you samples of my old tubing. I will be sending you a sample of both my acrylic and the primochill advanced LRT that I was supposed to send you a while back. I still have the address in my PMs and should get it out on Monday.

Any update on what that residue was?

it would be better run through a loop external but most people would be happy just letting it sit in situ, having it run through an external loop would remove more crud. part 2 though contains more surfactants and has a better ability at pick up rubbish. smile.gif. The reason for the way we have done the instructions is to keep it simple and not to confuse people smile.gif. 90% of users who buy this will not fully understand how it works. hence keep it simple.

Sooooooo what you are saying is...you can let it set in, but if you are comfortable running it as an external loop, then go for it and it could be better result wink.gif

yes. Off the record as such since this is a public forum. We actually ran Part 1 it in a full loop for 1 hour and 30 min with no issues how ever after 2 hours 30 min under test it started eating away at cheap plated products. Good plated products were fine for 24 hours just cheap ones well thats why we written the instructions as such. I think we've balanced the instructions so that you get the best of both worlds with hardly any risk.

No update yet. I will be sending the box with my old tubing to Mick next week. Not sure on shipping costs so waiting for payday so I can be sure I got enough in my account. From everything I can tell it seems to be either plasticizer OR I am baking the nano particles with where my UV lights are or how many UV lights I have. I might make a video showing a few of the spots it is the worst at. Somewhat funny thing about the entire issue is that out of all the tubing in my loop there are 2 pieces which were never effected.




These 2 peices have 0 buildup at all. I don't understand it and not sure I will ever be able to. Only thing I can think is the CPU and motherboard water blocks have collected anything that would of ended up on those 2 tubes. I am almost certain it is not any sort of mold buildup since it is chalky. Mold/algae would have more of a slimy feel to it where this stuff is chalky. As soon as I get the tubing to mayhem I will post in here what his conclusion is.

Ok question for the color mixers gurus biggrin.gif

I'm trying to achieve this color



I was thinking the obvious like White Pastel Base + Red or Deep Red dye.

Is it ok or will I have to add some blue or else?


Thanks thumb.gif

You might want to get some blue to get it a tad bit more purply. As that is what that colour looks like to me. Careful though, the blue also darkens the colour of the red up quite a bit I'm told from other users. So maybe you get the ocean blue instead of the deep/dark blue (whatever it's called).
