Mayhem's Aurora Hydra Gold Experiences

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Doing a gold themed build and ordered some of Mayhem's Aurora Hydra Gold from PPCS.

Followed the instructions and yet the results don't look anything like the picture they use.

I contacted them last week and have yet to hear back so I thought I'd come here and see if anyone's had first hand experience with this product and can LMK if my result is consistent with theirs.

Took a couple of snaps of what mine looks like with pump on.

Their picture:




My result:






The bottle:



The image is in focus - the printing on the bottle is offset.

Cheers.

Was it gold when you poured it in? Or did it start white?

I would try and contact Mayhem at the official topic / hang-about:

http://www.overclock.net/t/1286896/mayhems-users-club/0_100

The owner himself is online almost daily and answer questions and so forth -

TIP: It is also THE place to be for free samples wink.gif

There been a few problems with the Hydra Gold, example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2fB5vl7n00s , though I am sure you will get it sorted out in no time.

And remember to only run Aurora for a short term wink.gif

Hi there its all to do with light. the gold in the top first pic has a dark back ground hence looks more gold. (btw that pic wasn't taken by my self)

This is what it looks like in tube with dark back ground http://www.mayhems.co.uk/shop2/hydra-gold-1ltr.html

I have answered you question when asked by PPC and sent them a response and ive all so answered you email you sent to me this morning. The gold is white gold in colour and when you add a dark back ground or dark dye to it the gold is more prominent.

If you not happy still contact PPC (hank) get a refund and we will refund hank our selfs.
