Sparkles in water?

post #1 of 7

Hey,

I recently saw this:

I sent him the link to this thread. Hopefully he reads his messages more often then I do! rolleyes.gif

Which I found rather awesome.

Now I know the blue sparkling substance was only put in there to demonstrate flow, but would it be possible to put something like this in a real loop? Or would it clog up the CPU block with its fine pins?

I would assume it would clog up some where, that is why some people put filters in their loops. It keeps them running longer.

i think it will not only clog the blocks but the pumps as well because of their close clearances (between impeller and casing).

I don't see this doing any good to your pump or radiator. At least not in long terms.

Not a good idea, you can already see it to start clogging up the block as it is.

Even some of the cooler metallic looking Mayhem fluids are only for demonstration purposes. I would not run anything with a particulate in my loop for any length of time. thumb.gif
