Basically don't worry about the conductive vs non, none are safer than others. Best you can do is use good barbs and clamps and do thorough leak testing.

The benefits to distilled + biocide is low maintence. i have personally run distilled loops for two+ years without any need to change tubing or fluids. UV tubing will hold it's color for a very long time and still look new with water. UV dyes and coolants will loose their vibrance fairly shortly. Anywhere from 3 weeks to 3 months is about as long as they look fresh. They also dye tubing and blocks etc so it usually requires replacing the tubing when you flush. Dye blockage is more a scapegoat than real, tubing plasticizer and radiator flux is much more likely to cause blockage, but naturally when dyed a color of the color of the fluid, the fluid gets the blame. Depends on the dye and coolant too, some better than others. I would suggest UV colored tubing myselfband avoid the high maintence of dyes, but either can work fine.

Martin, would you suggest distilled/PTnuke or just go with Swiftech's HydrX PM 2?

PM2 for warranty coverage and extra security, but no mixed metals so options are pretty open.

I went ahead and bought Hydrx2 since I have a blue theme (and blue tubing). I always either used Hydrx 1 + distilled, or distilled + PTnuke + Pentosin for color. Never had any issues with any of them.

If you are using the ASrock Extreme6 I would connect the pump or the splitter to the "CPU Fan 1" which is number (7) on the Mobo diagram (4 pin PWM). Then go into the BIOS and set all the fans to "FULL ON". Start Windows and install SpeedFan. After it's installed you should be able to see (Sys, CPU and Aux) Try to decrease the CPU percentage to 0 and see if the pump and or the fans turn off.

It should go (CPU Fan 1)->(PWM splitter)->(Pump to *Red* first connector)->(Helix fans to next black connectors)

I thought the blue and green wires might be reversed as well, but I didn't want to tear anything apart without Swiftechs' ok. I'm going to take another close look at it though.

Edit: It looks like the wires are correctly positioned and making contact. I suspect there is a crack in the blue wire somewhere. I looked at the reported speeds in bios and it ranges from 3440-3490 or so. If it weren't under warranty I'd tear more into it, but I'd rather just get it replaced.

(AdamMT - thanks, yes I am using a PWM header. I verified the header works with PWM fans. It is just the pump that isn't responding properly.)

Sent you a PM. I'll personally take care of your RMA request when I get in tomorrow morning. We open at 8:00am PST, but I'm usually there about 15 minutes early. I look forward to talking with you in the morning and I'm sorry that you've had a problem with this kit.

Anyone know of a mATX case that could fit this, with 6 3.5" HDDs, and a longer then normal disc drive (LG BR/HD-DVD combo)?

Funny thing. The system was just sitting on for a few hours. And a moment ago I came in to check on it. It was doing some weird 0 rpm to 1700. Back and forth. So I adjusted the speeds up and down a bit .... And now it is steady at 3000 on high and roughly 1600-1700 or so on low. It is quieter as well. No idea what happened. I didn't change anything. I may still RMA it, simply because the behavior is bizarre. Will see how it is working tomorrow. (The 0 RPM reading kind of freaked me out.)

Definitely sounds like poor contact of the blue PWM wire. Same mine was doing until I popped it out, and fixed it.

Thanks for the Tip. I did test with Speed Fan, but the pump would not respond. It kept spinning at 3400+rpm, which now, seems clearly too high, as the max it is running at now is 3000 and it is responsive to adjustment. This matches Martin's experience as well.

Was hard pressed not to grab that case, pinch the panel and sell it as a brand new standard one. Anyone interested? tongue.gif
Might just get around to DIYing a panel with some acrylic that's lying around somewhere.

Adding the 680 to the loop with another rad is tempting, shame this case isn't rad-friendly; only got room for another 120x120 at the back.
what's a good place in Aus to get some rads and fittings?
