I would remove all the hard drive cages and the dvd drive cage and place one or two ssd's behind the motherboard tray instead. Would it leave any overclocking headroom? It's been some 5 years since I had anything related to watercooling, and that loop only included the processor anyways.

Not dumb at all! That's what I have - it's an awesome compact setup thumb.gif

So after a few weeks of down time, due to Mayhems coolant reacting to 2 different makes of hose, I have finally got her up and running again. My usual hose Pro lrt, has been out of stock everywhere so have had a nightmare trying to find another choice.

I started with XSPC no dice then some generic aquarium hose, that is advertised as being totally pure with no plasticisor, no dice again, so try 3 good old masterclear, fingers crossed it will hold up. The runs are just a temporary solution as the fittings are due to be changed in a week or 2.

Attempt 1 pastel yellow after 1 week.

I didn't keep any of try number 2 but it was pretty much the same result.

And today, with Masterclear and 1ltr Pastel yellow, 250ml pastel yellow concentrate, and 1ltr X1 yellow / green, just to get a more in your face yellow.

I'll throw some better pics up of the finished build tomorrow, I've just got about half of the cable management done, I'm just waiting on a 4 pin pwm cable to come to connect up the EP's fan hub. Plus, I've had titanfall here for a week and I need my gaming fix, before i go nuts, my old DV6 laptop just doesn't cut the mustard.

Pro lrt leaches so it's eol tbh. Advance should prevent this, though I find it a bit stiff compared to the older stuff. There's a plasticize thread about this .
post #65834 of 106449
I think it's the advanced I mean mate, I always get them mixed up. lol

Curious if "PrimoChill PrimoFlex Advanced LRT Tubing" is the best out there in your opinion? Been using xspc for the last couple years, I've got a couple different coloring for the tubes, so I want to update all the tubing to match, thinking about going this route.

As far as I've seen, the Advanced LRT is the ONLY flexible non-black (ie norprene) tubing recommended. I've used the Advanced in every soft tubed build I've done in the past 24+ months using both pastel and X1, and have had zero issues!

For the short time I've been water cooling I've always used Primochill, that is until a few weeks ago when they are out of stock, in my size everywhere, so I went with XSPC, and I've learnt my lesson. My mate uses it with pastel black, but it's the uv version, and it's been fine for close to a year now. From Mayhems website the Masterclear is fine with pastel, so that might be another choice. That's what I've just fitted today, so only time will tell.
post #65839 of 106449
With other brands/makes, its hit or miss as far as preventing plasticizing ("clouding). I've used clear Advance with mayhems yellow pastel and uv green mayhems dye. Its been a while since I was actively finding alternative options that would hold but Advance Lrt seems to be the safest option out there. I've been running plain distilled for a few months now and I have not seen any issues with the Advance Lrt tubes I've had (Atomic Green, Pearl Green, Elegant White, & Clear.)

What rads are you using (looks like Alphacool NexXxos line) and how did you prep them before filling your system? Honestly, it looks more like the fluid is reacting to crap in the rads than the tube. Advanced LRT is pretty solid and I have seen few to no issues with it. Tube reactions would produce a chalky film (plasticizer) on the tube walls and strip the fluid of color.

Specifically, the Alphacool NexXxos tend to have an issue with Pastel and require a real good flush (vinegar solution flush -> bicarb solution fulsh -> DI water flush)...otherwise the pH of the fluid can raise beyond its stable range and change colors, as it looks like from your pics. Example is red fluid turns brown.

Mayhems is releasing a system prep kit in response to these types of problems that should stabilize system pH and remove the reactants.
