XSPC EC6 Blood Red?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Just wondering when it comes to this coolant, is it better than Ek's version and have you heard any negatives to it. I know Mayhems are the king at the moment of coloured fluids. I'm currently running distilled water and red tubing at the moment and I know everyone says that that's the best option however aesthetically I'm a bit sick of it.

> Is there more of a maintenance factor when it comes to using the coloured fluid over water as well?
> How often does it need to be replaced over distilled water?

Any input would be fantastic.

I use the XSPC blood red coolant, I can say that it looks great and doesn't stain (at least not after 6 months).
When I drained my Fractal build to switch some parts to my Merlin build everything cleaned up almost like new.
With coolant it is always a personal choice. Do what makes you happy! biggrin.gif

Thanks for the reply, the xspc EC6 is the exact colour I want. Glad to hear it doesn't stain after around 6 months.

Cheers,

George
