Actually having issues trying to get this dam rug up and running as per this thread:
http://forums.overclockers.com.au/sh....php?t=1206716

Can't install Windows and have had to pull the loop apart and will have to come apart again so I'll look at tidying up the cables then, but it's towards the bottom of the list at the moment. Considering I may need a new mobo

Nice contrast in the red and black. I agree with your concerns regarding the mesh looking a bit dicky. The transition is stark and highlights the metal surround.

Just a suggestion - I do airbrushing as a sideline and often find it useful to blen or shade into an area like that (usually for drop-shadows but it would work well enough here) and you can do it using a normal spray pack working from the edges, build in from corners or even striping or a semi camo type approach to soften the red grills.

This is a keyboard tray I did which is as near an example as I can find.

yeah i'm going back to orange, i like the red, but its just the same as every other build. the thought of tearing the build back down to wash everything out is not appealing

Too all the people who say don't run pastels in your loop. I should have listened (or changed the fluid more frequently then never)



Stuck with this mess, basically at the point of flushing and cutting up new tubes as it's just easier then trying to clean the gunk off. Going with the much less maintenance of red auto coolant.

Tried dishing washing liquid and running the loop for a small amount of time made no difference. Didn't want to try vinegar as EK doesn't recommend it with the plating on the water blocks

Awww nuts.
At least there is one saving grace, it's all straight tubes. If you had bent the tubing it would have been an absolute nightmare.

WOW that is unfortunate.

Guessing it would be way more work cleaning the tubes then it would be just replacing them right?

But then you have the issue of residue still stuck throughout the loop.

More pics mate, sucks photobucket screwed the first part of your thread.

daaaaamn, thats grody as hell lol
At least it looked cool while it lasted :P

Iv heard a few interesting reviews on the Primo Chill True fluid which may be worth looking into, havnt tested it myself so i cant speak to their claims but they reckon it behaves like regular coolant and doesnt seperate / settle.
