Looking forward to seeing the results of this, as I was thinking of getting some EC6 when I upgrade to the I7 rig.

Or should that be when I have rebuilt Cubee to fit the new Mobo :(

Agree with no lumps. I was suprised on what greeted me when I disassembled my gtz block. Loads of uv Freser purple gunged up all the pins on the one half no wonder one of my cores was runing 4 degrees higher than the other under minimal cpu usage. Be interesting on how the thermochill coloured fliud will hold up over a 6 month period but will stick there clear stuff for now.

I was due a coolant change , so seemed a bit of a no brainer to try this , drained out fesser (pink) and put EC6 clear back in.
No crap/residue to report, seems the Pink doesnt have any issues !!

Changed it to a month, For the reason that people on XS said it was'nt long enough.

I will be doing a mega coolant test thing next year which will last a year. But a month test is coming up next week.

Im afraid.. After only 3-4 weeks of use the coolant has stained my Tube badly.

Its the clearflex 60 hose and it is bad indeed... UV is hard to see through it.

thermochill and WCUK i wont be buying anymore.

That's a real shame, are your blocks ok and did it break up and turn into fish poop?

Hose is cheap, I guess it's a bit of a pain but so long as it isn't clogging up blocks its not too bad!

Do you guys have any tips on removing hose from barbs, I had a real job removing mine after a test fit last night!

Er what? Staining isn't really an issue - clogging and gunking up is!
