Which Coolant?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I am going to be redoing my loop again. Its that time of the year to fully clean out the system check for bugs, clean the blocks etc... Only issue that I am having is what color and brand coolant to get. I have been using Pentosin G11 Blue. But now I am pondering the idea of using a dark red color.. What color do you think would go best with my system? Stay with Blue, go red, or something else?

If you want dark red, I MUST recommend feser dye, I love it and plan on using it in my build when I get the case from Syrillian. I have the feser red already mixed up in a gallon of distilled and it is a nice dark color. If you don't want to mess with dyes, you can try feser tubing which doesn't lose its UV'ness as easily as dyes and it looks absolutely amazing.

EDIT: Phos, I have that exact same coolant and once diluted, it is very very pink, not red.

I am not sure if I like the color tubing. Do not get me wrong its cool and all but I really would rather stay away from buying more tubing. I have bags full of tubing that I still have not used.

In that case just go with feser dyes. I love the red that I have.

Although I did pick up some feser red for my upcoming dual loop Syrillian tech bench build. I think it'll look amazing with the black acrylic.

Have you checked out the final pics of the build?
