Default Primochill VUE Coolant

Not sure if anyone has seen this stuff yet. It's a new coolant from Primochill called VUE. it's similar to Mayhems Aurora coolant but this stuff you can leave in a system and it doesn't settle to the bottom.



JayzTwoCents did a video on it here.

Here is a little video he tweeted.

From what I can tell Primochill hasn't released it yet to the public. I am just curious if Daz will be getting any once it is released.

I am interested in this stuff as well. Saw in on Jayz youtube channel too and was very intrigued. If it does hold up for long periods and doesn't settle out, I will be grabbing some for sure.

Cool thing about Jay getting it in his loop is after all the issues he had with mayhems and the personal stuff that happened over his calling them out over their customer service, I feel like I can take his word on his experiences.

It is just a bit of a waiting game now.

I would be highly skeptical about it actually working long term. I can't see how the pearls wot settle in dead spots.

Primochill hasn't exactly had good luck with wireless coolant / dyes in the past.

YES for video never shows real time settlement (camera only shows it moving)

and pump speed set to max during paid hype video

agreed LowFat in dead spots like bottom gpu not shown at all

I've never been big on colored coolant, I just ran distilled when I WC'd, but that's pretty sharp looking. The black/silver white combo could look really clean in some builds.

Though I'm a bit skeptical, I'll definitely look forward to some reviews.

I saw a build by Snef that had this type of effect and fell in love with it (it was also the inspiration for my current rig). Didn't go through with it as I learned that the coolant was just for show pieces (and would not really last).

Thanks for the video links Balistx - It will be curious to see how this looks in rigs with pumps running slower (to Jayc's point in the video). I also can't wait to see what other colours its going to come in. Here's hoping for a dark blue that would match my current build, although that silver would also probably look awesome.
