My Powder Red and Power Blue UV (for a buddy) Vue is being shipped on Monday so I should be able to get mine in the system by the end of the week. I thought about going with Crimson Red, but reading that the reds go darker after time I wanted to get the lightest colour to start with. I even purchased some Sys Reboot to drop in my loop for a day or two to clean it out before installing Vue to try and extend it's life as long as possible.

Since doing soft tube for 10 years, I thought Hard Tube would be the way to go to show off VUE. I even made a time lapse build of my very first attempt at hard tube in celebration of Vue. I'll make a part 2 once my loop has Vue in it.

Did you buy from Primochill directly? What did the total come out to?

I agree though, the Crimson and Razer reds look pretty dark, though a really deep blood red could be nice too.

Yes I bought directly from Primochill. My total came to 132 US shipped via DHL. I bought 4 bottles of VUE and 2 bottles of sysreboot.

I cant wait to use this fluid, I plan on doing a full out custom watercooling loop early on in the new year, just in the planning stages right now, and with some of the recent deals on it i may be moving to a Ryzen platform away from the lowly 4790k

Awesome work! It sure does look awesome. I am gonna wait a few more months just to make sure there are no issues. I have been trying to clean an old rig that had pastel settle out of the loop and it is a bloody nightmare. This stuff looks so nice it might be worth it anyway, but gonna wait anyways.

Congrats on the beautiful rig

Thanks, and even if you wanted it right now it's a month wait for the stuff now. I got some on my fingers and it feels exactly like water, no residue or slick feeling to it.

Did you happen to watch the Jayztwocents video with him taking apart his first Vue loop and checking out if it clogs? Well to spoil it if you hadn't, no clogs and the stuff started to clean his blocks as well.
