What is the current best liquid for water cooling?
I have been using the Mayhems MD-XT1-CL XT-1 Clear Coolant Concentrate for years now and it never gave me any issues. But now that I am about to start a new build I need some more of that stuff and I am unable to find it at a decent price anywhere, which makes me believe it has been discontinued.
So what are the current best coolants out there right now? I prefer a clear coolant concentrate with no dyes added as I tend to use UV reactive tubing and add my own distilled water. I have read the XSPC EC6 High-Performance Premix Coolant is top now according to two modern articles I read, but the lists differ from there and I prefer to add my distilled water myself. Though I am not against using a pre-mix solution.
While we are on the subject is the thermal Grizzly Kyronaut still considered one of the best thermal pastes?
ive been using ek cryofuel clear since it first came out and havent changed the liquid since then even though i probably should but if its not broke...
i used mayhems pastel red and the color changed probably due to a dirty rad as one loop was different than the other but the other also changed color slightly. but ive heard good things about mayhems in general.
Mods premix is already better didn't turn my x99 rig green again like mayhems x1 did
Must be all in the mods water lol
Mods 9.00 per liter verses mayhems 14.00 per liter really is not a competition
The Nuke XT-1 turned my fluid green the first time I used, or so I thought it was the XT-1. Come to find out it was the tubing I was using as it was a bit old at that point. I got the Primoflex Advanced LRT stuff and haven't had an issue since. That's been 3 years now, I think I might need to get new tubing for this new build...lol
You don't use Tygon? Seriously genuine Tygon is unreal at how strong it remains while being wet-noodle-like flexible & stain resistant. Granted it's a bit expensive, but for soft tubing it's excellent.
