Mayhems x1 question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
It says the X1 UV Blue, UV Oil Black, UV Green and UV Yellow Green Will stain your system if left in it longer than 9 months, so does that mean if i drain the loop before 9 months and refill again with the same coolant it wont stain until another 9 months? sorry if this sounds dumb, thanks for your help peeps wink.gif

I did mine after 8 months, and the answer is no, 8 months is too long, the X1 clear UV blue lost its ability to glow after 4 months, and I would suspect that at the 4 months mark, I should have changed the fluid.

on a side note, the X1 clear UV blue, coated the inside of my loop with a gray goo, so I will never be using it again.

ok thanks but my question was if i use one of the following : X1 UV Blue, UV Oil Black, UV Green and UV Yellow Green and drain and refill before 9 months will it still stain? also it was the mayhems rep that said it will stain after 9 months so my question was if i refill before 9 months will it remain unstained for another 9 months?

i cant imagine staining reducing performance ?

no it would not reduce performance, but if you start to notice that the load temps are consistently a little higher than they where when you first built the loop, than there is a good possibility that some goo has built up inside of the water block. this what happened to me, and why I tore the loop apart to figure out what has happened, in doing so I found that the inside of my loops components had a build up of gray goo in them.
