  1. As a Pastel user for over 2-3 yrs i can say these work extremely well for me. I never turn my pc of only restart it from time to time. EK Pastel worked fine for me. Now im on Mayhems Pastel UV White. I was also in the same boat & was considering the Vue, to not getting it due to what i heard. if you go Clear then with a Dye - or even the Pastel way you will be happy. this is my thoughts on it. (Don't get that Vue) .
  2. Yep im totally happy in my choice to use Mayhems Patel Uv White - not that i use the Uv but the white is so good. glad i didn't take the hype train on this, there is no way i would be able to use this and game here in the heat of Summer in Australia. All i need to do i get these pass-thu's in the system and ill be happy. Just need to get the drill bit for it. and be very gentle lolz.
  3. EK-XTOP DDC 3.2 PWM Elite Edition

    Right now i know things "are" strange and im not loosing it xD. & not a noob lol. Um what ill do is, leave it as is just let the Molex run it. (does get i little warm tho guessing this is the norm on the base) As it is well over a year old now. And when i upgrade ill grab 1 that has the "4 pin PWM" then i know that i can control it. Also i don't want to start a new thread just quickly ask here if i get 2 pumps would it be beneficial. 4 rad system. not seeing that much movement in the loop, tho the temps are very good. Thanks Again. The Help-has been well appreciated.
  4. EK-XTOP DDC 3.2 PWM Elite Edition

  5. EK-XTOP DDC 3.2 PWM Elite Edition

    Ill try to get a good pic later today. As im a bit busy. - can you explain this part for me kind sir. "your PWM leg is not connected and floating in mid air". And thanks for the help guys i appreciate it a lot.
  6. EK-XTOP DDC 3.2 PWM Elite Edition

    it is 2 cables ( 1 green 1 blue ) - to the 3pin . The Molex is 2 cables for power. And RollinLower im thinking this as well. Did get this over a yr ago easy so.
  7. EK-XTOP DDC 3.2 PWM Elite Edition

    few pics all the info i can gather . - had i look at the cables it is 2 cables ( 1 green 1 blue ) - to the 3pin connector.
  8. How to control pump speed, Very noobish question considering ive used this for quit some time now ~ lolz i know. But let me explain things. nearly 2 yrs water cooling my pc. It states on EKWB That it has a " (4-pin PWM FAN Connector) " Mine has a 3 pin Connector. I started water cooling a few yrs ago, with that said i got this. EK KIT X240 Water Cooling Kit added on since then added so on. (it's how i got started Anyway). Im wondering if this pump is Different to the 1 Advertised - but at the end of the day i want to control it, just to sus it all out, see how things will run if i set it to such and such. especially now that Winter is Coming for us. (Im Aussie) so it reversed for those yarda yarda you know what i mean. Tests: !.Used the 4 pin MOLEX to get this working with out the 3pin connected - it's been running just fine since day dot. 2.Used the 3pin hook it up to the dedicated 4pin header on the motherboard " ( ASUS PRIME Z270-AR LGA 1151) " Left the Molex un pluged. In BIOS - TESTED: DDC Control, PWM Control, so forth made sure it was on. This setting is called AIO PUMP. Setting Monitor/Ignor AIO PUMP - set to On. says N/A. 3.Same as 2 but with Molex connected still same speed. (Runs the same) Setting Monitor/Ignor AIO PUMP - set to On. says N/A So im not sure if im setting something Wrong or the PWM Feature just doesn't work Or it's the 4pin header on the MOBO or i have to plug the 3pin PWM to a fan header. Fudged if i know But for now it's on Molex only. And oh yes i did have settings for threshold speed. temp uppers so on. i know how to set them that's fine . it's the - Setting Monitor/Ignor AIO PUMP - set to On. says N/A. part i understand it but why does it not work or is this me lol. Thanks in advance. Pic is for Reference Only.
  9. Due to using that for another project - none pc related.
  10. ohhh i see. right thanks for that info.
  11. Update: i opted out from getting this - just way to much crip crop to it. i think it's safe to say that we all can wait a few yrs till they perfect it . Not gonna test it now - no way. Moving on. So now since ive had a lime green Pastel from EK running in my loop for over a year now ive got my self the EK 100ml Clear concentrate then ill add in the distilled water yarda yarda . run that for a few months - then um see if i want to get a dye or what ever then. i would of kept going with Pastel just no 1 is selling pastel - like why ? is it dead now ive had a fantastic run with it. So yeah Promochill Out EK back In . it's on it's way with some new cool stuff as well . got some of this cool stuff: 2 EK ACF 10/13mm Compression Fitting Nickel 2 EK AF Pass-Through G1/4 Nickel 1 EK DuraClear 3/8ID 1/2OD Tubing 3m 1 EK CoolStream PE 120 Single Radiator 1 CableMod WideBeam Magnetic LED Strip White 60cm 1 EK CryoFuel Concentrate 100mL Coolant Clear 1 Bitspower Deluxe 5mm Heatshrink - Black 2mtrs 2 Bitspower Deluxe 1/16in Cable Sleeve - Black 1mtr Total: $184.50
  12. This i shall do. i srsly don't think there is going to be much of an issue. As in the fluid looks thic - tho so did pastel. im not 100% sure on how this all works for this effect nor do i care as long as it works im happy. but im sure they did the testing on it. a very well put clean out is always done on my system. Lets face it we don't hand out all this money for a great set up to have it filled with gunk and dust and crip crop. thee only thing is when i clean it out it takes me a full day so i know it's all done 100% not only the loop the rads cleaned and fans dust. filters exc. And im getting some new LED's white so it stands out more. Anyway glad to be a guinea pig. Cheers guys.
  13. You know what im gonna get it .just seen Jayztwocents vid on his and um im sold. done. the "falling out" part didn't seem at all an issue for me. so im getting it. But thanks for the info. @least if it does happen i know what's the go. and can swap it out at a later date.
  14. It falls out ! really omg ill have to youtube that haha. Right so stay clear of promochill for me done. Thanks.
  15. Im about to change out my coolant that has been in my system for just over a yr now eep i know. i wish to use "PrimoChill Vue Pre-Mixed Coolant 32oz - UV Sky Blue SX" But they state that it's not recommended to use if your system runs 24/7 . So my question is why ? & will it hurt anything really - like at the moment im using EK Green Pastel. 24/7 (that i can't find any more) and it's been all fine no issues . Thanks Again. Kind regards
