LOL yeah but shipping will cost more than it if you only just order it....might as well throw in a D-Tek block and a few rolls of Tygon 1/2 ID tubing....you know just to make it worth your while ;)

Seems that in true ATEAM form chibiman wants to improvise there must be some crystaline compounds that will do the trick that dont react with copper-what about iodine crystals or gentium violet??

Magictorch, I LIKE YOUR STYLE.

If you have been looking at my work logs then you know I LOVE to improvise.

AKG is right. Shipping probably will cost more then the product. Sad thing is the only nearby computer shop that may supply something would be Canada Computers and hell, they are VERY shortly supplied with water cooling.

Ok, MAN on a mission... whos with me? Gotta find something to make this work.

LOL no insult intended...Gorilla water cooling is "unconventional" water cooling in which you try to get the biggest bang for your buck. Just like gorilla warfare is the "is the act or art of Unconventional warfare" and gorilla marketing is "Unconventional marketing intended to get maximum results from minimal resources".
LOL Didn't invent the term but sure wish I had ;)

Close enough.

Well, I had my doubts and I had to try it for myself. Food Coloring.

I sat in a walmart for ten minutes thinking about it, so I figure to hell with it since it's only in the testing stage anyways.

So far, a few drops equals a nice light color. In my case blue. Give it a minute to run through the loop and the color gets better. Add a few more drops and the color improves.
Right now it's a real nice dark blue, kinda like an ocean blue.

I will leave it running over night and then shut it off for 8 hours. Start it up again after that and pay close attention to the loop for any possible problems.

I have a personal theory for better results based on the possible build up in my loop. However even that is still a long shot without seeing what will happen.

Wish me luck I guess.
