Where is the Best/cheapest place to order Liquid coolant, and UV lighting For My PC??

I'm looking for RED UV,,I use koolance currently, and Would like a white , or wblue UV light as well.

I've looked @ newegg, and they Don't carry any coolant, and I've looked @ koolance, but the Shipping Cost was VERY close to the Bill total, which is Rediculous for 1 Lb of product.

This is the Motherboard for reference.


Any , and All HELP would be appreciated.
Thank You for Your time.

.
Best is glycol and distilled water mixture, you could try a die to make your color. ALso E bay for the lights.

PS the green antifreeze works great and glows under UV lights.

Distilled water, PT Nuke and silvercoil is all you need. Pre made liquid coolant is a waste of $ and dyed coolant will gunk the block. I have been running Distilled water and PT nuke only for years with no problems.

i had good experience with Primochill Dye Bombs Syringes 3-4 in a loop give me bloody red color last loong too, the pre colored PC ICE from Primochill lost it color way to fast

in both cases the tubing got colored by the liquid (needs to be replaced on other color)


else i used Distilled water, Glysantin® G40® and some anti alga liquid

Never tried anti-freeze (although I have no doubt it works if mixed properly). I do use Koolance liquid coolant:

And red colored tubing (Tygon) for my current set-up.

If you plan that your red is gonna look really like pink when going UV, i'll go with Mayhem or EK Red Blood UV ... said that, if you have non-restricting blocks, the Mayhem Aurora Tharsis in red it's a really nice effect, i had it for some time till i lost it, the flow needs not to be restricted in order to maintain it ... and my apogee xt rev2 was not compatible, i didn't read it at the time :banghead: ... anyway ... the first week it was really nice, it's not UV reactive but with a white led strip looked really cool.

Though that, as @drdeathx says, if you're applying some kind of colouring to the liquid (by yourself or already mixed) you'll have to clean the inner of your blocks as soon as you swap color or after a year running the loop. For me it's not a problem cause i like to flush the circuit every year/year and a half, but if you want to run it for years with no problems, take the man's advice.

just be very careful with Mayhem's Aurora dye types. He even states that those dyes are only to be used for show and not long term daily WCing needs. The Aurora dyes will gunk up the loop really bad and even change color over time.


The keep your WCing cooling loop risk free, indeed use color tubing.

Yup, for the Tharsis specially, i removed a lot of "white pearl" off (the chemical used to produce the twist effect, dunno what it is) the Apogee XT rev 2, got some big deposits of that thing in the sides and possibly if i let it there for more weeks, the block behaviour will not be the same.

And the advice you gave it's completely true, and they say the same in their website, but in the same info they tell you as well that there are some components mostly to be compatible in a long term with the "fluid effect": http://mayhems-aurora.wikispaces.com/

Sadly, my apogee was incompatible, a shame i didn't read it first.
