post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am new to water cooling and I just finished my loop 2 days ago

I used clear liquid and I am not to crazy about it . I know how to drain my loop but I don't know how to get every last drop of fluid out of it . is it ok to still have a little bit of clear fluid in my loop when I add the red fluid ? and will the fluids blend in together or will I have red fluid in one section of my tubing and a little clear fluid in another section of the tubing moving threw the loop ? the fluid I now have in my loop loop is primochill pc pure clear I want to use primochill pc pure red

I would just tip/turn the case to get as much out as you can, then refill with the red. The clear should just mix with the red, might dilute the color a tad, but shouldnt be a problem. You could just try adding dye to the clear to make it red instead.

Yeah, I'd recommend just putting some dye in, or using a mayhems mix-they're designed to be mixed into distilled water, but I'm sure they'd work just fine with a clear coolant as well.

It should say on the product page or primochill website if their differently colored coolants can be mixed.
