Mayhem's Aurora Wiki and Guide

Aurora is "NOT" made for use in a home system. It has been developed for show System's (modding) and Photo work. If looking for a fluid for a Home system / Gaming system please use Mayhems X1 or Mayhems Pastel range of fluids there are fully tested and working in any kind of loop.

Before use you Must Shake the bottle vigorously to mix the Aurora in the bottle.

Tested and Confirmed working products.

Will be updated as new items are tested and confirmed.

Removing the restriction plate in CPU blocks increases the life of the liquid and gives a much better effect. In testing you will lose -1 to -2.5c (dependant on CPU block) off the system when removing restriction plates.

+ Reservoir’s with Inbuilt Pumps do not work well as the pump vents suck in the pearl and do not release it.
++ Single DDC / D5 Reservoir has large opening on right hand side were the water is dead and does not move this causes the pearl to drop out of suspension and lay. these are actually badly designed reservoirs.
+++ D5 Laing Pumps are recommend to be run on Level 4 and 5 and not below this settings.

Pumps with Low overhead pressure are not recommend for use with this Fluid.

Recommended Equipment:
  • Tube Reservoir
  • DDC 18 W
  • Phobya DC12 - 400 / 800
  • Fast Flow CPU block like the DT 5NOZ
  • Any GPU Block

WARNING: Do not use Harsh cleaner to clean your system out before using Aurora. These can damage Aurora and it will stick to you tubing. Preferably use new Tubing when ever possible. If you have a exit port on you Computer for emptying out you water cooling loop it is better to remove this (see below).


Disappearing Aurora

Aurora just does not disappear. This is a problem caused by 1 of 3 things.
  • You have not flushed your system correctly. Aurora Sticks to tubing, Rads, and various other components.
  • Your pump does not have enough pressure or flow to move the fluids around quick enough (e.g 4 rads + 2 blocks on a single 18 watt DDC is expecting to much)
  • You have bad flow in a reservoir or single component that is causing the pearl to stay inside it or stick.

Aurora is not made for complex systems. It is made for simple loops with 1 or 2 rads and pumps and res.

It has been noted that people using lots of 90 Degree bends are experiencing problems with this liquid. When we tested the liquid we used normal barbs and never used any 90 degree bends in the loops. It has all so been noted people are adding more than 2 to 3 blocks and getting disappointing results again this is down to the user to test the liquid before adding it to a live system.
