This is the thread for all things VUE!



MAKE SURE YOU READ ALL TABS (ONCE YOU CLICK ON A COLOR) FOR FULL INFORMATION ON VUE COOLANT

!!! WARNING !!!
DO NOT USE WITH ALUMINUM COOLING LOOP PARTS
!!! WARNING !!!

They have already shipped the first few waves of pre-orders. The next wave is expected to ship on January 15th 2018. Four colors still aren't available at all, and as of January 10th there is no ETA on those.


NOTE: VUE is a show coolant. PrimoChill recommends it not be run more than eight consecutive hours. If you run your system 24/7, avoid using VUE. This coolant requires lots of rest (they recommend overnight) for best results.


STEPS FOR BEST RESULTS (NEW LOOP WITH NO PREVIOUS COOLANT):
1. Run PrimoChill SysPrep treatment using recommended methods.
2. Fill loop with PrimoChill VUE coolant.
3. Enjoy your VUE Coolant Experience™.

STEPS FOR BEST RESULTS (EXISTING LOOP):
1. Drain previous coolant.
2. Make sure each component is thoroughly hand washed and dried.
3. Run PrimoChill System Reboot treatment using recommended methods. Follow steps on System Reboot Instructions tab closely. Method 2 is preferred, as it gives a higher concentration of System Reboot for better cleaning.
4. Fill loop with PrimoChill VUE coolant.
5. Enjoy your VUE Coolant Experience™.

FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE ABOVE STEPS CAN RESULT IN UNDESIRED VUE PERFORMANCE.



Post your experiences and questions/comments in this thread! Pics and video encouraged! We love loop-filling porn here ... especially the slow-motion kind!

My next build will be in February, and I'll be using VUE in that. I plan on really testing out the longevity, keeping it in for as long as possible -- hopefully a year (at which point I'll likely build a new system).

I am seeing that if you use red it turns darker over time, but how much darker are we talking about. What causes it, heat as an example??

I would think that as long as you have enough radiator space to handle the heat from your components, then the coolant wouldn't get warm enough to cause color change. That may be a wrong assumption though, as I don't know what VUE's safe operating temps are -- it's not in the info available on the site.

Is this in a new loop or a loop with previous coolant in it? The site says VUE has a high attraction to dyes and will leach them out of loop components, and they highly recommend using their System Reboot on loops that had dyed coolant in them.

Yeah, the Candy Purple SX is likely what I'll be using for my new build.

I contacted them asking about this. They said to make sure your loop is clean, not to have high heat 24/7, and the color will change a small %

You should change your order to grey tongue.gif
I ordered the silver also but really wanted to see what the grey looks like.
Mine shipped yesterday but it's the other side of the world...

Seriously, this thread will be great to see what the different colours look like in a real loop!
Well done MNMadman thumb.gif

My name is Peter and I overclock.
