    m8, just run distilled water + kill coils (or PT Nuke). You don't want something like this happening: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=226632

    I know it's different product, but after seeing that I no longer run any other stuff on my loop except for PT Nuke + distilled water. If I want color, I just run colored tubing. PrimoFlex LRT has the main colors you'll ever need (red,black,blue,green,etc).

    As for being "non conductive" that's not exactly true. The fluid will turn conductive after about two or three weeks of continuous use.

    Anyways, good work so far.

    Thanks for all the awesome words!
    I will try to not disappoint you guys!

    Okey so you dont recommend me using PC-ICE? because of the Color in the liquid?

    but doesn´t that happen to every color that you ad to the water that it faints away and clogs up the blocks?
    The thing is that I would really want the color in the water to give it a nice effect in the reservoir.

    I got recommended this coolant from other people in other forums:/

    I have no experience with watercooling from before so all the feedback is great.


    I have another thing to ask, I´m in a bit of an dilemma, I don´t know if I the tubing would look nice clear with the color of the water or if I should sleeve it instead;)

    I know what the use of color if i would sleeve the tubing but I what the color to show at least in the ress!:)

    Again thanks:)

    Sleeving the tubing as in the PSU sleeving stuff? I have not seen any one do that. May be pretty cool effect. You'll definitely want to look in to that.

    If you want to use colored dye, that is fine, however do keep an eye out for possible problems after a few weeks. Like I said, I personally stick to colored tubing over dye.

    Which forums? The best WCing forum I've used is XS and OC (formerly OCF). Most (actually almost all) there agree on just running distilled water + killcoils/PT Nuke.

    Yep like in sleeving cables;)
    I will try and do a setup like that and see how it looks;)

    I will try to keep an eye out for problems like high temps and such, and if I see any changes or something like that I will have to take everything apart and have a look. probably I will have it to take some nice pictures and maybe later if any problems shows I will change to something else;)

    O I cant remember but I googled it and found some already existing threads and just asked in them.:/

    Love this advices like I said its the first time for me with watercooling.

    That is brilliant. I haven't seen any one do something like this yet, you may be on to some thing here.

    If you are new to WCing, I recommend you read these, if you haven't already:

    (Mainly, pay attention to the assembly as this is where most newcomers mess up)

    Oh what is this, a new update? well yes it is!

    Hi All!

    After a long brake, it's time for a couple of new updates :D

    Thanks to a graficcard crash I was forced to buy a new pair of cards:

    Everything looked alright, but at a closer inspection I saw that it wasn't the cards I ordered so I had to return them to the store.

    But I quickly found a new pair, but this time from another store:
    [​IMG]

    What cards could this be then? ;)

    Oh a pair of HIS 6970 ;)

    Keep tuned for more! :D

    Oh what is this another big update? :D

    And what? might it be some new plates to the chassi?

    no false alarm! it was just some part for the watercooling.

    a couple of block for the gpus, backplates and a bridge.
    some more tubing, a tubecutter and a fancontroller.

    Okey so here we go again!

    After spending some time with drilling and tapping holes for screws, and at the same time letting the CNC do its work I finally got some more parts ready :)

    Not a gigantic update but hope you like it! :D
