Not really 24in's been looking at samsung and BenQ monitors but still think the bezels are to thick and don't really want to take off the plastic like some people do.
I would like something like the Samsung MD230X3 where its all included but that's way overpriced

I ordered 1 more set of UV lights to make the green glow more. I wanted to do the LaserMark also but had no idea what to use as the pic.
Only thing I don't like is how the board is mounted horizontal in the middle of the case, I liked how they use to mount it on the side vertical like u would normally do.

You'll see A LOT of variation in opinions on this. Some people go for a complete system drain, break-down, cleaning every six months. Some do that once a year, others rotate.

If I were in your position, since you have such a high-end top dollar rig, I'd change it at least once a year (personally), but dependent on the type of coolant you might be able to go longer than that. The issue is that even in the best of systems, airborne bacteria always manage to find a way into the reservoir and any exposed copper will also eventually oxidize, so cleaning has to happen at some point.

I believe DS uses Feser One coolant, so if you have good luck with that, then I'd just stick with it. I'm pretty sure you can order some from DS if you like, though its likely cheaper elsewhere.

Well it looks like you have a uv reactive liquid with additives in it, normally ds uses a clear liquid, from my experience the color additives like to gunk up pumps etc and will actually stain the blocks etc, so you would be best to break down the loop atleast once a year and clean out the pumps rads blocks and reservoirs. There are many ways to go about cleaning the above listed components

Hi Jesta42o,

I think you could go at least one year, maybe longer, with those big reservoirs. Once a year is reasonable. After you do it the first time you will have a better idea if it was too soon or you could have gone longer.

Do you have two 360 or 240 rads on that system? Looking forward to your review. Tell us all about the LC setup.

The dye should not really cause any issues. There have been issues in the past by certain brands, but, we've seen hardly any problems with the stuff we use.

Also just got a sweet new mouse I've never heard of the brand "Mionix Naos 5000" A friend of mine had one and loved the way it feels in the hand, And how it has a place for your ring and pinky fingers.
