My System Specs

Default Mayham Aurora Liquids

so I was just about to checkout Tharsis red and Supernova for my build... until I read the aurora wiki on frozencpu

Aurora Guide - www.mayhems.co.uk

it says not for home system.... why not ?

cooling is not good ? my computer is a show computer for sure but gaming also... I love the effect and don't want clear or pastel... i'd rather want the aurora for the looks of it

any input ?

You can not use it for home use like it says. It is only good for a very short period for shows, lans, etc. After that the particles will settle and start collecting somewhere in the loop.

As was said, aurora coolants are snazzy and all but are just for temporary (read short) usage. If its used as a permanent coolant, it will clog up somewhere reducing performance greatly, and most likely fry something.

What ends up happening is the pearl tends to die out after some time. When that happens and its still in the loop, it will clog up the rads and blocks. Its good for a lan even or show and thats about it.

For an everyday system, use Mayhems Pastel line. You will be better off. I speak from experience.
