It's silly to keep seeing these topics come up. The answer will always be the same -- no UV additive is the best additive. Go with UV reactive tubing over liquid...unless you want to shorten the life span of your loop. Then by all means...

To be honest he probably already knows that dye is "bad". So why don't ya'll just help him find a dye??

Pretty sure hydrx doesn't gunk up, but that only comes in green. Thermochill claims that the dye used in EC6 or whatever it's called doesn't gunk up, and they also happen to be the only coolant manufacturer to even bring it up, which lends them a bit of clout in that regard. I'm planning on trying it out for myself around spring break when I revamp my loop.

I have to wonder if it's the regular coloring or the UV coloring that causes the gunk to form, and if a filter would prevent it from ending up in the blocks.

Food coloring... Come to think of it, being sugar based means it's water soluble, which would prevent it from separating because it's actually dissolved. I'm sure there are a dozen other problems with it, though.

I was worried about gunk up from dyes as well, but after seeing some youtube videos of people taking apart their blocks after 6 months and showing the inside that not all dyes gunk your system up.

The Feser One coolant doesn't gunk up systems.

I've had Swiftech Hydrx running in my loop for close to a year now. Although I haven't inspected the inside of my block, I haven't noticed an increase in temps that would indicate a clogged block. I hear what most people say about the dye gumming up but that has not been my experience so far so I can reccommend the Swiftech Hydrx.

im also convinced that a lot of people finding this "gunk up" is people who drain their loops and then wait long enough to take their block apart for inspection and are finding that the trapped water in the block has dried thus leaving this gunk they are finding.
