Liquid cooling is not a great hobby for doing things without doing any research. Simply reading the web you linked tells you that you are getting 12 mo max out of it. Pastels have the highest maintenance of the coolants, and dyes in general are far higher maintenance than clears. Also, as @mfknjadagr8 pointed out, Swiftech will not warranty anything if you put pastel in it - draining it before you send it in won't help if you think you can fool them, since the pastel will stain the components.

Get the EK Koolant concentrate and some distilled water ( NOT DE-IONISED WATER ) the coolant will have instructions on what mix you will need . Pastel liquids don't have dyes in them , the Nano particles are coloured . Mayhems make a very good cleaning fluid kit , but as your unit is reasonably new , just make a mix of 20% vinegar to 80% water . Run this in your loop for about 2 hrs ,then flush this out with plain water . Then fill with your coloured pastel mix And do the usual 8 hr leak test run .

You left out the last part of the instructions: Void your warranty by using a coolant Swiftech specifically named as incompatible with the pump.

sorry to say, but i dont wanna do any custom dyes; sounds too headache inducing and tedious... im a bit too much of a beginner to try


would the mayhem dyes that came with it also increase maintenance?? my unit is still brandnew uninstalled

Not to sound mean, but if 30 minutes a year to do maintenance is an issue, you are probably better off with an air cooler.

too bad i already have it

air coolers need just as that much replacing paste anyways.

Then there is your answer. Just don't do anything silly like putting in dyes that are stated as being incompatible, or running maple syrup as a coolant and all will be fine. wink.gif

I at least do that much without using pastels or dyes , so I would think pastels and dyes require more than that. I do not want to use pastels or dyes because they do increase maintenance and they have a bad reputation of reducing the life of the loop they are in.

I have a question for all you Swiftech gurus, do all Hxxx X2 series have LED switch on the fan power hub, or is it only the Prestige models?
http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2807132/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL

Quick Installation Guide say nothing about it only being Prestige models, but someone wiht prestige is saying it is only prestige.
