Hi all I was wondering is there any coloured coolant that is compatible with the H240x that won't clog it up ?
Thinking of putting a clear gpu block on tho if there isn't any I'll go a different style
Thanks

And, my personal favorite......"the GPU is at 53C, but it keeps throttling". Because, you know, VRM temps are meaningless when you have a CLC.....

I know that Swiftech had stated that Mayhems X1 was ok, and I believe XSPC ECX and EC6 were stated as ok, also. The big statement was never to use any "nano-fluid".

Theoretically, yes....but why would you? With so many coolants made specifically for this application at low prices, why would you use something made for another application?

Well it made to cool radiator. And it 5 minute aways. While we need to order the stuff.


Distilled water + antifreeze could maybe make a colored liquid that wont damage the loop?

anti freeze requires more maintenance and can gum up after a lot of hot cold cycles...have you ever looked inside your cars radiator...nasty stuff that's why you have to have them flushed every so often now imagine that in your little channels of your block...it will work and can but distilled water running without a biocide for a few weeks won't hurt it at all and won't have algae growth or deposits...and they make dyes for distilled water that are safe perhaps dango week chime in here...also the anti freeze won't improve cooling at all and some pumps don't handle it well either

Oh ok yea.

Well just gonna order the real stuff if i upgrade the loop and or refill it... If i get the h220x anyways. biggrin.gif

For those that have the cooler and have had it for awhile running as is, have you had to add any coolant yet?

If you had some air trapped in it that needed time to work itself out you could need more... and during normal use it does once and a while need some from evaporation... if it keeps happening after you add more distilled then you might want to check some other things such as clamp tightness and make sure there isnt any leaking...if you expanded this is much more common than if you ran it as is out of the box....if you top it off again and in a short time it needs more.. start looking for reasons smile.gif when i ran it for about six months without any expansion i needed to top off once and it was literally less than half an ounce... but i like to keep mine absolutely 100 percent full...

@BONAMI2 you will see an improvement from the h75 that is without a doubt...the h75 cant hold a candle to the h220x or the h240x plus later if you decide to expand you can easily handle two gpus... i have mine running with 220rad 240 rad 280 rad and two gpu blocks and its doing pretty decent... i wouldnt recommend running as much as i have without a second pump... which i have but ive been too lazy to install...it looks nice sitting on the desk though (mcp50x with the mcp25xres attached)... but the pump is handling it with acceptable temperatures... try that with any other aio and the pump wouldnt keep up...

Hello i have a corsair h75 and im looking for an upgrade.


Anyone have experience or an idea of temp drop?


Looking at the h220x 200$ + tax the h240x is 260$ + tax.


Thank you smile.gif
