post #12811 of 21105
I have a question regarding the EK UV Blue Premixed coolant. I'm currently using EK Clear coolant in my loop with Primochill Advanced LRT UV blue tubing along with Darkside UV led strips. I'm quite happy with the UV effects, the only problem is that my 250 EK res looks kinda dull with clear water so I was thinking of switching to the EK Premixed UV Blue coolant in order to give my res a better look with the UV effect. Do you guys recommend the UV Blue from EK? Also, I have a bitspower drain valve in my loop so draining won't be hard but there probably will be some EK clear coolant left in the blocks/rads, would this be an issue if I use the EK UV Blue and they get mixed a little bit? I really don't have time to tear down everything just to get the water out. Thanks.

It's an asus x99 deluxe. Pretty high end I'd say. It was 399 new.

Hello

I bought Ek Waterblock fittings HDC 12/16 and Ek Waterblock acrylic tubes 12/16
The problem is that the tube does not fit in the fittings (even forcing very strong), the tube "blocks" on the inner joint, you have a "solution"?

And also, once the Ek waterblock tube is "bent" I have a sort of line with small "peaks" (. . . . . . .), just one place and I have the same thing after 2 tests (no mark with Monsoon tube)
this may be due to what?

For info, when I heats the tube (heat gun ~ 320 °C) I have the impression that it"crystalized" (slightly white) that disappears once I've finished heating the tube

Thanks for your help

I was wondering if anyone has any numbers on how much Watts a CoolStream SE 240mm radiator can dissipate when used with EK Vardar ER fans? Would like to see wether a 980Ti and i5 6600K would be able to run on a single 240 without overclock. Only for when in mobile use, as soon as it gets home it will be connected to a bigger wallmounted radiator. If anyone responds to this, please be sure to tag my username, that way it is easier to find in this busy thread that is always moving.

Modify it to make it how you want.

I have a I7 4790k @4.5 and 980TI with the TDP limit to 121% running around 1450mhz. This is cooled with CoolStream SE 240mm with two EK Vardar ER and a CoolStream SE 120mm with a 120mm 15mm Silverstone fan. And it barely kinda keep up with the temps, on idle the GPU is around 35 and the cpu is on the 40s. And on load the gpu goes to around 65 and the the cpu to something like 75. Thats with the rpm of the fans between 40 and 60%.

It think if you won't OC a single SE 240 might be enought.

Is water with a little soap is safe?

Even if there's still a little bit of clear coolant it's fine to refill your loop with the UV Blue. They will mix together. thumb.gif

I would not use soap there. Only water

You must chamfer the end of the tube to ease the insertion and protect the inside o-ring from being damaged.

The user in the link you posted uses the EK-HD Adapter. These ones have 2 inner o-rings instead of one in your EK-HDC and it's true that it's a pain to insert the tube in the EK-HD Adapter.

I never used 12/16 tube so I haven't experienced what you had (the crystalized effect). Maybe others here will have the same experience as you encountered.

Dip the ends of your tube in boiling water so they are pliable. They will pop on after that.
