I've seen your NZXT rig and the blue colour you achieved quite a bit around the forum, and ive always said that that colour is really nice, it would suit my MSI mobo perfectly wink.gif

The problem isn't that I don't know how much to add, or how to create the right mix.....it's just that it won't mix together period. wink.gif The res is to large, that when adding dye, it's having a hard time making it's way all around the loop and mixing in fully. Any suggestions from anyone? Keeping in mind of done the "standard" stuff like shaking and rocking, even sticking something inside the res to try to stir it....

Ive always noticed, that the guys that are very particular about getting the colour just right, mix their various colours OUTSIDE of their rigs-use a 1 ltr empty water bottle for example, then you can experiment till you get the exact colour you need, then simply pour it into your res/loop thumb.gif

You can catch my buildlog down in my sig or over at OCAU. (This is a custom case, one of a kind biggrin.gif)

Still need to work on the motherboard armour, gpu backplate and lightbox, but will probably have to wait after New Years, busy busy busy!

Thinking of wrapping my ram in carbon vinyl to get rid of the horrid blue colour, or does anyone want to swap ram? :lol:

Yes... I know, it looks like I pissed in my loop, the tube has a horrible yellow tinge to it, will have to swap it out soon for either duralene or new primo clear + a pastel colour or maybe just some black tubing smile.gif

And I've used that method before, mixing up the coolant with the colour OUTSIDE of the loop....BUT if you don't know exactly how much coolant your loop is going to take and you premix everything, add it to the loop and then your short....well then you have to add more of the base white coolant anyway and the colour is off. Now you're probably going to tell me I should order a whole bunch extra and premix more than I need? wink.gif Well I do budget my builds and don't really want to spend extra if I don't have to. So I dunno, I've played with both and they've both got their pros and cons. For me, and other guys I know that are particular about their colour too, they get the loop almost full and then add dye until the desired colour is reached. Again, the amount of dye I have in there is going to give me the colour I want, if it would just mix fully. Maybe I should take the 90 off the pump top, and change it to a 45? Maybe it's restricting the loop as soon as it comes off the pump and that's why it won't flow properly and mix the dye?
*sigh* Last ditch effort, if it really bugs me....guess I could just drain it, mix it well, and add it right back. Thanks for the suggestions.

I've been having trouble getting the same shade of blue with the new loop though...it's a lot more coolant than the previous setup, and it's having a hard time mixing in fully.

As usual. looks good as FK! thumb.gif
