Don't get me wrong, you can't just add Aurora to a loop and expect it to last for long periods of time. In many ways you should build your loop around Aurora. If you do so it will likely last along time.
Thermal wise, I was no difference in performance between Aurora and Distilled water. Aurora is a slightly stronger X1 mix with a couple of different things added plus the Aurora particles.
Also I'd be happy to help anyone design their system around Aurora.
YGPM sir!

Aquatuning has it, but they still have it labeled as light red, I got my red about a month ago from them.

I just received my bottle of light red pastel today, but haven't put it in my loop yet. My question was if the lights in my reservoir will be any use, or is it too opaque to matter? Currently I have 2 red LEDs in the bottom of a tube res, pointing up.

I think as long as your loop is not too complex, you don't have too many 90 degree fittings, and your pump/res combination is compatible you should be fine to use aurora. I guess the only way to know 100% if it's gonna work is to try it. Mayhem has pointed out earlier in this thread that when aurora starts to fail and the particles reach the end of their life span you can drain your loop and filter all the liquid through a coffee filter and you will be left with what is almost identical to the Mayhems X1 coolant..

@schnellschnell never tried it to be honest.

~30 drops of Deep Blue. I have three Monsta rads so I'm running close to 1.5L of distilled in my loop smile.gif

After 25 drops, there wasn't much difference. I added five more just to confirm.

I really don't understand your loop.
Have you got a worklog or more photos That reservoir is just so confusing...

No log smile.gif

Its a Koolance reservoir with two tube bodies attached with a coupler. The coupler has ports which is where the liquid enters the res. I have the Koolance ddc pump top that's attached to the tube res with another Koolance coupler. From there: 360 Monsta>240Monsta>gpu//gpu>360 Monsta> cpu> res.

I'll take some better pics later on thumb.gif
post #680 of 15600
That's a lot of Monstas wink.gif.
I'd sort of figured that it wasn't a reservoir you'd just bought but when I was looking into tube reservoirs I hadn't noticed any of those koolance thigns you're using right now.

Will wait for the photos.
