Dying Coolant Tutorials?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I was recently looking at Primochill Vue but after seeing the reviews i've been strayed away, though at my local Microcenter they had a loop display with coolant that had the Mayhems Aurora or Vue effect, but an employee said it was just Blue EK Cryofuel with Light Blue/Blue Primochill Dye added in and it achieved the same effect. This same Microcenter also told me that all custom sleeved cables are the same so I took it with a grain of salt, is there any tutorials on dying coolant to achieve a vue/aurora effect or dying in general?

I can't really weigh in on the dying comment, but I'm from Canada, and I've heard (especially lately) that microcenter employees are horrible and have no idea what they're talking about.

There are a few video tutorials out there, but dyeing fluid is generally an exercise in artistic license. I wouldn't be terribly surprised if that method turned out to be true. Cryofuel has colored particles in it to create the opaque effect it has, couple that with added dye to change the color of the liquid the particles are suspended in and you basically have Mayhems Aurora or Primochill Vue.

 

On the other hand, I'm not a fan of any kind of coolant with with anything suspended in it, too many horror stories of ruined blocks and tubing for my taste.


¯\_(ツ)_/¯
