|war4peace||Truth be told, it had been one of my "what if...?" things related to watercooling, until I researched it and realized it's next to impossible. It would definitely not help GPU waterblocks but would very likely drop CPU temperatures because it would soak away heat much more rapidly.|

yeah it would be quite the cluster lol
i mean, even CLU eats away at your blocks and that has minute mercury & galium.

That's a tricky feat. 1L of Mercury weighs 13.53 kg, so you will need a very strong pump. Also, mercury amalgamates with most other metals, however you could platinum-coat your waterblocks (instead of nickel-coating them). Not sure what you could do about the radiators, I guess you could make them of iron, which doesn't form an amalgam with mercury. Don't use steel, though, because mercury corrodes it.
Due to its extreme weight per volume, you would need thick glass tubing, although I suspect 16/10 tubing would suffice.
Looking at the above, I guess it's not worth it

|skupples||but how would you cool it?|
|12-02-2019 08:42 PM|
people generally should go for water unless they want to use Hydrofluoric acid or Mercury in their builds
Mercury cooling? Now THAT is metal AF!

yeah, that's not surprising. Aurora is incredibly tempermental, and amazon users likely did nothing but just dump it into their system. The amount of prep work required for it to not shift is pretty hefty, same for trying to use black dyes.
aside from that - as far as additives go. X1 or Biocide+ inhibitor+ are phenomenal products. I used x1 in a soft tube sytsem i didn't properly clean, and ignored it for 5 years. Only took 5 minutes to clean the blocks back to new (minus some copper patina)
Makes you wonder a little
Seeing the instructions on the blitz part 1's bottle and white paper are light years different on potency on just how harsh part 1 can be so if someone followed the bottle and ran it through an entire system instead of just the rads what would happen = meltdown ... [IMG class=inlineimg]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/IMG]
imagine running that body dissolving grade acid straight, then filling w. coolant, turning on your dual pump at full blast... your radiators would turn into sprinklers.
as stated, step 1 is overkill for most folks, unless they're trying to build a top tier beast with funky coolant, and then continue to run said funky coolant as a daily driver.
you can easily recreate this at home with less caustic stuff, and a simple baking soda wash.
orrrr, just do it the old school way (lots of hot water), and use normal coolant = 99% of problems solved.

Glycol reduces total cooling potential, if I remember correctly. You're mostly shooting yourself in the theoretical foot.
I usually refer to this table when checking Thermal Conductivity. According tho it, people generally should go for water unless they want to use Hydrofluoric acid or Mercury in their builds
The problem is that both are extremely toxic and dangerous. So yeah, better just use water, or a premix, or drops.

Mayhems Pastel XTR
"The coolant that can outlast your PC"
Mayhems new range of Pastel XTR is a totally new product range made from the ground up in the UK utilising some of the most creative and experimental technology we have in the UK right at this time. Mayhems teamed is with several Nano Development labs in the UK with the idea of improving the Pastel line of Nano coolants. It has taken 2 years of R&D to push the boundaries of what we can achieve.
The new line of Mayhems Pastel XTR (short for extreme) has taken over 2 years of devolvement and get to a level that we can now manufacture on mass. One of the primary goals was to be able to create a better suspended nanoparticle that would have a much better drop out value than in the past and we have managed to achieve this. We have also been working on its longevity without compromising the integrity of the liquid cooling system. Another goal was the purifying of the individual particles to a level never seen before with in our industry and once again we have managed to achieve this.
With our new factory line and new Nano testing equipment we can keep the QC high and produce on mass like never seen before. We also have direct excess to new technologies that we have never had in the past which enable to push our R&D even further and beyond the scope never seen before.
There will be two versions available. One being a consumer product and one being a professional product. The consumer level system will be available first. The pro product incorporates extra technologies to clean the partials down to a nonconductive coolant ready for direct die and direct contact application.
Pointers of “Mayhems Pastel XTR”
• 20 to 40nm in size
• 5 to 10 year in system life (regular maintenance will be needed)
• Up to 10 years shelf life
• 100% UV A,B,C blocking (nothing will grow in your system as light cannot pass).
• Biocide long term protection
• Long-life anti corrosive protection.
• Extreme QC controls in house
For the Tek's out there ->
• Zeta Potential <-30 mV -39.8
• PH 7.27 stable (more testing is needed for "full" PH ranges.)
• ORP to be confirmed.
• Conductivity : pro 0.0001 μS and Consumer 0.05 μS +/- 0.1% / Pro tested indpendantly due to nature of the product.
• Watt 7.5 to 10% (tested drop out of 0.01% over 20 days) Instant pick up with a nominal flow.
• Each batch certificate will be held on records and Independently verified.
Still to do.
* This is for ambient cooling only atm, were working on sub zero versions to go down to -65c.
* Storage temp 15c to 30c, max working temp 99c (under pressure) before loss of -mV value, long term testing and more work needed in this area.
* PH lower and higher testing still needed (were saving up for the equipment for this)
* External Factors like uncleaned rads still needs more testing.
One of the goals of this new Nano coolant was to cut the cost of ownership of this product, because it has such a long life span the total value of ownership will much cheaper than in the past especially since its life cycle goes way past any thing on the market at this present moment in time.
All R&D is a product of the profit from Mayhems sales and us directly injecting the profit back into Mayhems to improve liquid cooling. This is where your money goes!
ETA : 2020.... Keep an eye on our website. This is still WIP.

Hi there! If I would like to use some propylene glycol (Pharmeceutical Grade, same as the one used in vaping, purity > 99.5%) would that work with any combination of metals? Especially with EK's stuff which are super sensitive. For example I read that the lowest advisable percentage is 33% of Propylene Glycol, so would that recipe (for 1lt) work using Mayhem's new products?
350ml Propylene Glycol
650ml Water For Injection (double distilled and sterile hospital water)
2 drops of Mayhem Biocide+
2 drops of Mayhem Inhibitor+
Thank's a lot guys
or just stick with the drops, they're more than enough. No need to add stuff on top of them. Glycol reduces total cooling potential, if I remember correctly. You're mostly shooting yourself in the theoretical foot.
