PrimoChill Intensifier Transparent Dyes - Black

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, I have some of this intensifier and I was going to add it, and it only to my distilled water.

I didn't really realize that it is supposed to be used with other dyes to darken them.

Has anyone used this just by itself with distilled water and if so what was the result?

I was hoping to achieve a transparent-ish black to contrast against the white tubing, I dont really want to run Mayhems X1 as from what I read its basically a very very dark green/brown and I really want it to be black, black. Not green/brown tinged black.

If anyone has any insight that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
DeeG

THey just say that to sell more Primochill coolants, with distilled water it shouldn't be an issue. Personally I wouldn't trust it in my loop, I've had bad experiences with Primochill products. You can mix your own black much easier. Blue and blood red should do well for a oil black type look.


Explain the color you're trying to achieve, and the situation here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1286896/mayhems-users-club/4590#post_21524074

Lots of people readily willing to help in there. If you're willing to drop the Transparent look, Mayhems Pastel Black is just jet black.

Yeah, that was an issue. Unbalanced pH levels can cause it to turn color. I'm pretty sure it was taken off the market, revised, and re-released though to make it much less sensitive to pH.

A simple flush with a bicarb before filling usually prevented that though.
