Default PT Nuke

Hey guys, I was reading some forums and came across this product. I read that it was necessary to put in your loop when using distilled water.

I checked NCIX, and DC, and neither of them have it in stock, nor is it available.

I was wondering if anyone had some left over I could get from them? Or if you know where I can buy some?


Thanks,

E291

I've only been able to find it from US etailers, so I just ended up getting a bottle of HydrX

Hmm. I just bought some distilled water, and I'm wanting to get whatever I need before I setup the loop, so that way I dont screw anything up over time.

So Swiftechs Hydrx will basically do the same thing as PT Nuke? Also, If I want to add colour, what should I add. Or will adding certain colour changing attidives cause problems in the water?

Well, before I used Primochill's Coolant + Dye Bomb. that gave me some nice crappy residue in my loop after only a few months, so I ditched that, bought colored tubing and went with distilled. HydrX was my second choice for the loop, PT nuke being first. HydrX is green and supposedly UV reactive off the bat, so I doubt that it can have it's color changed.

Petra's Tech Shop (Petra's Tech Shop is the place that makes it. They also have other dyes that you can probably mix with it. It's a US retailer, but I'm pretty sure they ship to Canada.

I recommend Petra's as well.

However if you want use this stuff
PrimoChill Liquid Utopia - Clear Products Model: L-UTOPIA-CL [L-UTOPIA-CL] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come

This plus some silver, or Primochill LRT tubing and you're good to go.

Excellent responses. I just emailed DC to update my current order to add the Hydrx.

Hopefully they reply soon, and get it shipped out asap so I can get started on this build!
