True for some colored coolants, but not all. Mayhems isn't the only exception either. The way you state it makes it sound like it will happen, no matter what.

<3 the thread though. smile.gif

I can testify that both Mayhems and Feser dyes I have used and tested have not separated. The only experience where the dye/coolant has separated was using Primochill dye bombs.

Haha, thanks biggrin.gif

From my knowledge and what I've seen it pretty much does, in fact - I changed some of my loop yesterday and the innards of my tubing was a deep purple after using Mayhems Red. Also the water has changed from red to a deeper purple, so I'm afraid it's going into the water and tubing.

I'll check it when I rip apart my loop on my next build.

I saw that Feser was some of the worst out there. I've seen threads that have Feser One going into the blocks in a matter of weeks.

That was a some time ago. I too heard a lot of horror stories about Feser premixed eating away at the copper itself eek.gif. I don't fully trust premixes so I stick with dyes and cheap distilled. Its been some time I heard some stories about issues with Feser (premixed). Most of the commotion has been about EK and Koolance nickel blocks failing.

Hmmm. Well, I'll change the OP, but I still don't recommend them. Seem a bit hypocritical after using them myself, but I'm definitely going with coloured tubing next build.

I've done a lot of research, but can't seem to understand compatibility, i know what blocks i want, tubing is going to be 1/2 ID, 3/4 OD , but past that i'm lost. can you recommend a setup, or make suggestions based on my rig? (I don't want any "starter" kits, though, i can figure most anything out with computers plus i don't get to spend much on them often so i want to maximize it when i can)

Sure!

Well, pretty much any CPU would fit on your 1155 socket, but the problem would be your case. You'd have to get a super thin rad up top so it doens't hit the motherboard and only have push or pull (I'd recommend pull so cables do get into your fans) and then a 200mm in front seems to be the normal go.

I'd go:
CPU: XSPC Raystorm.
Pump/Res: XSPC D5 housing w/ Swiftech MCP655 (select from the list).
Rad: Phobya 200mm (on the front) and Black Ice 240mm (up top).
Tubing: This, to go with your motherboard. biggrin.gif

Not sure what fittings you wanna go with, be it compression or barb. I'd go with bitspower 1/2" barbs (really tight fit) and some clamps.

Pretty sure there's not block that fits your lightning, but that's such a sexy card who'd change it? If you wanna WC your graphics card you'd be okay to do so with this build too, this could handle CPU + 2 hot GPU's before you'd be on the limits of the pump and rads.

Hope this helped smile.gif
