post #11 of 22
res to need to be filled to the brim. also you have a ton of bubbles which is not helping.
Try using distilled water instead.

It's 1l fluid or 250ml concentrate? It seems they come in 2versions and it would explain why it seems such a thick fluid.
It would help a lot if you could pwn control the pump and turn it down so that it doesn't create extra bubbles. Martin's mod as mentioned above solves all air problems even at rediculous flow rates.


The first revision of the MCP35x res is also notorious for leaking. It happens when the pump is shut off and there comes too much pressure inside the loop. 2nd revision doesn't seem to have this problem anymore.
You bought it 2nd hand from someone? It's possible they knew of this.

Ya, originally the color I wanted was dark red or red. The site I bought it from advertised this as being red, but it's clearly pink, which I hate in this context.
I've just ordered a new pump (same kind) a bigger reservoir (dual 5.25 bay, which I like way more) and some red thin fluid.

I already have some Feser Ultra Pure Water which I'm going to use to get rid of this horrible pink Mayhem crap.
The company where I bought my components told me it's a RMA on the pump and the reservoir, and it's the old revision reservoir, which is as mentioned above a leak-o-holic.

In my next attempt I'll place the pump in the bottom right next to my PSU (farthest away from my sensitive ears), drill ventilation holes in the mounting velcro I use, and be happy about the freakin color of my liquid! rolleyes.gif

@StijnDP
It's fluid and not concentrate. If you google Mayhem's Pastel series you'll find them to very thick looking.
Something I should have looked into before actually investing in it. I still have two unopened bottles of it, which I'm going to return to the reseller where I bought them.
Ugly fluid is ugly!

Don't use velcro or sponge with this pump.

How come? Don't I get a lot of resonance in the case if I just mount it directly to the aluminum?

What makes you think the stand is not decoupled? You can do the velcro if you want, but you will overheat the pump.

There's a heatsink for the MCP35x.


There are 2 kinds of pumps.
Pump like D5 who dump their heat into the water loop. No extra cooling needed but your loop gets a little warmer.
Pump like MCP35 who dump their heat on the housing of the pump. Extra cooling is needed and the loop doesn't get extra heat. It's strongly advised to use a heatsink and airflow when running it at 12V for long times.

^ tru dis.. dem 35(x) can get quite warm (new heatsink and fan combo available)

i'd hold the etailer responsible for the coolant error, not Mayhem... not fair they screw up and Mayhems gets the blame..

i'm sure you could tune it up and make it redder with some of mayhems dyes shoot him a pm or posted in the mayhems user club thread he usually help trouble shoot problems


edit: after looking at the video again, it looks like it might have been a miss labeled bottle of pastel perfect pink no where near pastel grape red

you might want to bug the reseller, or order direct from mayhems next time
