Alot of people consider pure Ice Dragon a little too extreme for normal setups because of it's potency. I'm pretty sure Mayhem dillutes the Ice Dragon a bit in his Pastels, then does his normal alchemy with it biggrin.gif

I was originally going with Pastel. Then that whole issue came up with Pastel causing corrosion in the Alphacool rads cuz of their all copper construction. Then while i was waiting to see if he fixed the issue, i decided to go acrylic, and that i like transparent coolant wayyy better with acrylic

I'm running an alphacool 360mm and 280mm rad at the minute with Mayhem's pastel orange in my rig. It's been running just about 24/7 for nearly a month now, this is the first time I've heard of corrosion issues. As you can see from the pic I posted, I have the (new) version of the pastel. Hopefully this has corrected the corrosion issue.

I've been meaning to strip it down and do a few mods as even though it was meant to only a temp thing while I built the xb, it's kind of grown on me. Ill give the rads a thorough looking over, I've got a borascope at work for checking inside of things. Comes in handy when I need to how far up his own ass my boss is lol.

Now the warm weather is nearly upon us, I want to concentrate my time and money on my bike as it's looking a little unkempt. Riding a sportsbike on UK roads in winter tends to destroy them due to the amount of road salt attacking the metal parts. Causing oxidisation on the aluminium parts and rust on the steel. Right now I'm not sure which is the most orange, my Mayhems fluid or my chain and sprockets.

It does open up that whole mixed-metals can of worms. . .but I noticed that a pair of the delphi aluminum radiators used on the PMG5 LCS modules would be just the right size to fit side by side behind the HAF XB bezel. Well, after some cutting of the stock fan mounts perhaps. And tacking on a pair of 180mm fans.



Hmmmmm.

A load of metal eating worms. Copper, brass and nickel aare good to go with each other. Add aluminium into yhe mix snd you are going to have problems.
