  1. First of all I'd like to thank Alphacool and Mayhems for supporting this project. Special thanks to Adam from AD Modz, thanks to whom it all started! I've been searching for a large and simple case that can fit two 60mm thick 480 rads. I haven't found one that would have a layout i like so i decided to make one myself. I'm much more of a diy guy than computer head so there is no render models of the build, thread won't be full of awesome professional pictures and it might be not very neat and organised. Disappointment for most. I will, however, try my best to provide as much details and up to date info on what's being done. Actual state of my pc(pretty much all hardware is going to be transfered to the new case): Now the new case... I wanted something simple, minimalistic but strong and big. Two 480 rads fitted without problems(push/pull possible on both) with an option of adding more rads if needed(don't think I`ll ever need). I love working with acrylic but acrylic only case wasn't an option since the size it big. Went with aluminium as it`s light and strong, acrylic will find it`s place as top/bottom/inside panels. Size of the case: 70cm x 60cm x 33cm Components i7 5820k MSI x99 sli plus 16 GB Crucial Ballistix Nvidia GTX 1080 SuperFlower Leadex 750w gold Samsung 850 evo 250gb SSD WD 2tb SSHD Watercool Heatkiller IV pro acryl EK gtx1080 acetal block 2x Feser Xchanger 480 rad Alphacool VPP755 pump with Watercool Heatkiller top Aquacomputer Aquatube reservoir Aquacomputer Aquaero 5 LT 8x Enermax Cluster Advance fan 3x AeroCool Dead Silence fan Onto the project then: assembled shell(incredibly sturdy while only 6 kg of weight) cut top/bottom acrylic to size and drilled fan holes and sanded. was going to paint the panels flat white but frosted effect looks very good, might leave it as is in the case and with a rad I will be using Enermax Cluster fans for both rads but as case fans I wanted something a bit different(for a contrast), chose these as they are very quiet and push reasonable amount of air. Painted white and sleeved That's it for now, not much i know and it looks like nothing at this stage but gotta start somewhere. Next step: motherboard/inside wall panel, holes for fans in front and i/o with pcie slots cutouts. More pics and update soon. 28/08/17 update
  2. Mayhems Tubing and Coolant Guide for users. This will aid in choosing the right coolant for the right tubing. It is a very basic guide how ever accurate. All testing is done in house over long periods of time. Tubing can fail for many reasons but failure has scored it a negative mark. Some reason for failure include, Micro fracturing, Cracking, Shrinkage, Drying out and more.
  3. Which coolant is right for me?

    Which coolant is right for me? Which coolant is right for me? When choosing a coolant there are several types you can go for. Below is a very simple guide for you to choose the correct coolant for your needs. High performance, no colour and low cost Mayhems Ultra Pure H20 For normal water cooling systems there simply is no better performing liquid than pure water. Mayhems Ultra Pure H20 is the ultimate water which has been filtered to such a high level there simply is no better branded Ultra-Pure water on the market. For this reason alone if you would like the get the most out of your water cooling system temperature wise opt for this. However you do need to also consider a few other factors including which biocide you would like to use as without it over time UV rays can penetrate into your system creating the perfect harbour for bacteria and algae to grow. High performance, low cost and colour Mayhems Ultra Pure H20 + Dye As explained above you can opt to use Mayhems Ultra Pure H20 to give you the best performing liquid out there but if you would like a colour tint to the water you can simply add Mayhems Dye range to your system. Mayhems dye range is the Number one dye in the water cooling world to use and is recommended by many of the top modders and water cooling builders out there. It has been tested for many years around the world and has gained the ultimate reputation for being the best and the only dye to use. Mayhems XT-1 250ml Concentrate Mayhem XT-1 Coolant is a High Efficiency, Non-Toxic, Low Viscosity coolant based on Ethylene Glycol. Mayhems XT-1 Is a Low Cost very effective concentrate coolant and can be used to make up to 3 Ltrs of coolant for very little out lay. High performance with or with out colour premixed Mayhems X1 Coolants Mayhems X1 Coolants are made from vegetable extract and are the safest and least toxic coolant on the market today. It comes in many colours to suit the needs of everyone. There is no messing around, you just pour the coolant into your systems and that is it. Mayhems X1 includes all the biocides and inhibitors you will need to protect your water cooling system and doesn’t require the user to add anything extra. If you would like to make your own colour Mayhems X1 is fully compatible with all Mayhems Dyes. We do recommend you change your coolant out regularly as over time the coolant will become less effective. Our recommend change out period is every 9 to 12 months. Mayhems Pastel Coolants Mayhems Pastel Coolants are a Nano based coolant that have an outstanding reputation not only for looks but also for performance. This fluid not only stands out from all the other manufacturers of coolants but all so kicks them in the teeth with metal toe capped boots. Mayhems Pastel is a solid looking coolant that comes in many colours and once again like Mayhems other fluids can be mixed or adjusted to suit your colouring needs using Mayhems Dyes. It has all the biocides and inhibitors in the liquid and needs nothing extra adding. Mayhems Pastel is one of the longest lasting coolants out on the market to date and will last over 3 years with no problems ever reported and this actually makes the coolants more economically viable than any other premixed coolant on the market. Speciality photo work and show system coolants. Mayhems Aurora Coolant Mayhems Aurora coolant lays in an untapped market on its own. No other premixed coolant on this earth even comes close to the looks of this coolant. However there is a down side this coolant is not for the normal home user and will not last as long as the aforementioned coolants and was never created for such purposes. The maximum life span for this coolant is 6 months but in some systems may only last 24 hours. Any user wishing to use Mayhems Aurora should first read our FAQ's as this goes into more detail about this product. Sub-zero Coolants Mayhems XT-1 Mayhems XT-1 when mixed correctly and in the right ratio can go down to a staggering -50 making it the perfect coolant for sub-zero liquid cooling. It is the perfect Coolant for anyone using chillier’s in there systems or any sub ambient type of cooling.
  4. Mayhems UV Opaque Tubing Mayhems UV Opaque Tubing is extremely versatile with new ’Polymer Additives’ that do not leach plasticizers into the system. The chemical makeup of Mayhems new coloured tubing has never been used before and is a brand new concept by Mayhems Solutions LTD and is fully REACH complaint. Mayhems Opaque Tubing has been tested in systems reaching temperatures of up to 90c and liquid heat internal temperatures of 65c+. The UV White tubing has extreme flexibility and can easily take heat loads way beyond other brands and keep its elasticity. Mayhems Opaque tubing has an excellent bend radius suited to liquid cooling systems. Mayhems Coloured tubing will also partially acts as a catcher by absorbing soluble residue stopping it reaching and fouling the system. This is a very unique feature and will aid in prolonging the liquid of the coolant within the system and also the life of the PC liquid cooling parts. This is Tubing is developed, produced and made in the Britain entirely utilising British manufacturing techniques and knowledge. Release colours are UV Reactive White followed by UV Reactive Red and UV Reactive Blue in sizes 13mm ID / 19mm OD, 10mm ID / 13mm OD, 10mm ID / 16mm OD.
  5. My first water cooling build was a roller coaster of a learning experience to say the least. It seems like every time I'd get a package of parts in the mail I'd realize that I'm missing yet another piece or I'd find some new component that I absolutely had to have. When all was said and done I called my baby GrayGhost. After finishing "him" I began browsing the modding forums and getting the itch to do a case mod. This is my first attempt to mod a case into something that carries my design aesthetic and hopefully keeps a decent build quality although modding with limited tools and space is always a huge obstacle. GrayGhost 1.0 I am a designer by trade so I am planning on building a system that is a bit different and interesting yet manages to remain understated and quiet. Recently the Parvum R1.0 and Corsair 600C have caught my eye because of their inverted motherboard layout. The only problem being money is tight and I told myself I would not buy a new case until after the Broadwell-E processors are released. Until then I dug around I realized I already owned a Define R5 and a Cooler Master Elite 110. I wouldn't have any issues chopping up either of them since they were only collecting dust. Needless to say, due to size restraints, I decided to begin a modding project using the Fractal Design Define R5. Hardware: Case: Fractal Design Define R5 CPU: Intel i7-4770k Mobo: Asus Z97-AR RAM: G.Skill Sniper 16GB 1866 DDR3 (2x8GB) GPU: Asus GTX 970 Strix (x2) SSD: Samsung 950 Pro M.2 512GB SSD: Samsung 850 Pro 256GB SSD: Samsung 840 EVO 120GB HDD: Western Digital Green 3TB PSU: Corsair AX860 CPU Block: EK Supremacy EVO - nickel GPU Block: EK Full-Cover - nickel (x2) GPU Backplate: EK retention backplate - black (x2) Radiators: Hardware Labs Black Ice Nemesis 280GTS (x2) Fans: Noctua NF-P14s Redux-1200 PWM - 140mm (x6) Reservoir: Barrow quartz glass - 170mm Pump: EK D5 vario Top: EK-XTOP Revo - Plexi Fittings: EK & Barrow - matte black Tubing: Alphacool HardTube 10/12mm Carbon Coolant: Mayhems X1 - custom mixed color Lighting: Darkside Connect UV LED's & NZXT Hue+
  6. Mayhems has been working hard on new Coolant technologies and direct correlation between high heat systems and ability of certain inhibitors, relating to low grade copper produced products and aluminium produced products. With our new in house analytical systems we have discovered new formulation’s that can improve not only the heat transfer of the fluids but also prolong the life of low grade copper and “all aluminium” based fittings, blocks and components. It will also prolong the effective life of the new coolant based products. The new high grade in house developed inhibitors create a more heat resilient barrier on the copper and aluminium to help protect them from degradation over a period of time and is geared towards small high heat creating systems such AIO’s, micro ATX / ITX systems (using small amounts of coolant) and also duel / triple based GPU high heat load systems. With the popularity of Small micro system utilising less fluids and also extreme high heat system out putting higher TDP / Wattage (support request driven direct from us) Mayhems is the only manufacture who create products based on what the customer needs and expects from us not what is the most profitable. More information will be forth coming as we progress.
  7. New Mayhems Glass tubing

    Mayhems bespoke laboratory grade, hand blown and hardened glass tubing are made in the UK to the highest possible standards. Developed from the ‘ground up’ Mayhems Laboratories have taken the concept of ‘Glass Like’ to the extreme and utilised local knowledge within the UK to produce hardened tubing for liquid-cooled PC’s. The size of the tubing conforms to standard sizes that are common within the industry today. Mayhems tubing is fully compatible with other popular fittings from Alphacool, Bitspower, EK, Thermaltake (amongst other brands). The previously mentioned tubing has been stress tested beyond ‘normal’ temperatures (100c+) and tested with all Mayhems coolants Warning Use appropriate safety measures when working with glass, this include safety glasses / goggle and gloves. Dispose of glass off cuts and glass dust safely. These products do not brake into small fragments they shatter into shards. Test bench built with Mayhems Glass tubing Pre bent peaces We are working on more glass ideas and more pre bends. So far we have 12,13 and 16mm Strights from 500mm to 1000mm 12 and 16mm 500mm long bent at the 125mm point
  8. Mayhem's Silver Bullet

    Welcome to our PC build log for the Silver Bullet build I would like to first introduce our Sponsors whom are helping create this small but full featured PC system. IN-Win http://inwin-style.com/en/goods.php?act=file&id=805#product_tab have kindly supplied us with the 805 tower glass case as per our request. MSI has graciously Sponsored us with a main-board aka - MSI Z170A XPower Gaming Titanium Edition Intel Z170 (Socket 1151) DDR4 ATX Motherboard and a Graphics card (more details to come) I will be creating a 1 off special Real 100% pure Silver Nano 10nm coolant liquid for the build. Glass tubing and hopefully some thing just a little bit special but you will have to wait and see....... Super flower are sponsoring us Via OCUK http://www.overlcokers.co.uk a power supply.
  9. Hey guys, quick question. I'm working on a project and I was thinking about running the Mayhems Ice White Pastel coolant. I see that it has corrosion inhibitors. But Would I still need to run a silver kill coil in it to keep anything from growing in it? Just curious before I order some and don't get one. Thanks for your time I appreciate it.

  11. Mayhem Ultra Pastel Nano Fluid

    As blocks get smaller impingement plates the fluids need to evolve. Mayhems Pastel was based on a 20 to 40nm Particle size how ever things move on. We've created from the ground up a new 10nm Pastel additive that is more advanced than anything in water cooling. Companies are now trying to copy mayhems work how ever we are years in advance of them and always have been. The new coolants will last from 3 to 5 years in a water cooling system. Watch as we demo 15mls of the new additive making 3 ltrs of active coolant. This will save a fortune on shipping and will allow users to make any colour as they wish much cheaper than in the past. These new coolants are "patent pending" and are some of the most advanced cooling products in the world today for PC cooling. http://youtu.be/RshipAljwbA
  12. We've been working hard on our new Rads and have now moved into full production with our Havoc range of radiators. The radiators have been independently tested and have proven to be a high contender in the market. The rads will only be coming out in 240mm and 360mm (63mm depth) and a limited run of 480mm (not for sale to consumers). They are sonic cleaned at the factory but we will also be including a mini blitz kit to clean out your full system. More information will be released soon.
  13. [Worklog] Project : Midas' Folly

    Long time listener, first time caller! I had a random idea , it ended up growing into : Corsair 900D Corsair ax1200i PSU ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition intel i7-4830k 16G Corsair Dominator Platinum (4x4) 2x ASUS Poseidon Monsoon hardline acrylic 1/2 x 5/8 Monsoon Free Center hardlock 1/2 x 5/8 fittings XSPC Raystorm Copper CPU block XSPC mainboard blocks 2x XSPC AX480 1x XSPC AX360 1x XSPC AX240 3x XSPC photon 170 1x XSPC photon 270 Random assortment of MNPCTECH billet goodies A whole slew of Corsair SP120s 6x+ vandal resistant 22mm buttons + custom mounts Some amount of modder's mesh Another whole slew of phobya and darkside LED strips Mayhems Aurora gold loop 1 Mayhems Pastel UV white loop 2 Feser UV black loop 3 Varied and various pieces and parts hand milled from 1/2" & 1/4" 6061, plus whatever else I end up needing to fab up. On the short list is a series of mounts of the reservoirs, a replacement for the top cover of the 900D, a replacement / cut out of the front panel plate and filter set, likely a set of replacements for the 5 1/4 bay covers, and a full replacement of the front panel ports. Potentially cutting out and meshing the basement doors as well. And some amount of House of Kolor Black Gold pearl Progress pics soon, just waiting on a few more items to arrive.... EDIT: changed project name, Tower of Power was unwieldy at best ;)
  14. This is a slide show How to on Hand Crafted Fabrication. Some amazing things have been crafted using basic tools and techniques long before CNC mills were ever invented. I want to pass on what was taught to me so that it might help other modders that don't have access to a mill or just want to take on the challenge of making things with basic tools. I have great respect for those that have the ability to program a CNC Mill to craft computer parts, some people would have you think there is no skill in that and I totally disagree. Those are just different skills than I have. There is a great satisfaction in hand crafting pieces so enjoy!
  15. On the 8th of November 2013 Mayhems was invited to the Star Business awards. http://www.thisisstar.co.uk/community/businessawards.php So me and Steve and our staff went along (all dressed up lol) and we had been nominated for two awards which were The innovation award and the Best use of Technology award. We won Both of the the awards and were presented with two lovely little trophy's for the night :). It amazed me that we won to be honest as we had gone up against multi-million pound businesses and won :) A photo of the complete team are here. http://paulempsonphotography.zenfolio.com/starradioawards/h2fb58c22#h2fb58c22 Good night was had by all :)
  16. Hey everyone. First off I have no experience with doing case modeling/renderings or any of that. And unfortunately I don't have time right now to sit down and learn. One of these days I will get to it though. Now to the reason for the post. If someone that can do renderings has some time I'd really appreciate some help if possible. I'd like to do a rendering of a Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 with a full mesh front panel that matches the top panel. And if possible one in White with green mesh, and another green with white mesh. The green I'm going for would be as close to Mayhem's X1 UV Emerald Green. If no one has the time to mess with it I understand, I'll just have to come back to the idea at a later date. But if someone can mess with it please let me know, I'd be really grateful.
  17. Land Mark Day for Mayhems

    Well today is a landmark day for Mayhems. We have now officially partnered up with Primary Dispersions Ltd in the UK. We will be working together to advance our coolants and designs for products to new levels. We now have “exclusive” access to processes that our competitors can only dream off and we will be using this new technology to our full advantage. We are not looking to be one or two steps ahead were looking to be years ahead of the game.
  18. Project Decimation

    Code name : Project Decimation Under Test (early preview). In conjunction with our new partner's we have produced an extremely special coolant for the purest out there. When we say purest, we mean the user who loves the thermal conductivity of water alone and then to add a silver kill coil for protection. What we have done is taken our Ultra-Pure H20 and 99.999% pure silver and smashed them together into Nano Tubes 20 nm to give you an Aurora Effect Real Silver Coolant. The partials used in our new coolant will never clog a system as they are so small they should even pass though filters that are currently used in water cooling systems. There is another benefit and that because we are using Silver Nano Tubes they can carry more heat than water alone making this new coolant one of the best thermal conductive coolants ever to hit the home user for liquids cooling. Another thing that will stand out is that the coolant has a 5 year “in system” life span if it is not contaminated. We recommend you do not use this coolant with Aluminium radiator’s or blocks as there is no inhibitor built into the fluid. Like many of our products this is a early preview of advance coolant. This product has a patent pending.
  19. Who would like free coolant.

    yup i poo you not, who would like some free coolant. All you pay is the post and packing. I have approx 30 bottles left of 250ml concentrate and 30 Bottles left of 1 Ltr The colour is X1 UV Active Emerald Green. (250ml or 1 Ltr) You can only have a maximum of 2 bottles only though.

  20. Hello everybody! As some of you may know, I have been working closely with Bill Owen at MNPCTech over the past year learning and soaking up as much as I can as his intern. We have done several case reviews and mod guides together, and it is time for me to step it up a notch and take on a big themed build. - Theme - This is going to be influenced by oldschool Star Wars, and specifically Rebel Alliance equipment. I love the look of their gear, machinery, technology, and spacecraft, so this will take many ideas from that. We're starting with the Cosmos II, and will end up with something that looks dramatically different in the end. I first must thank CoolerMaster for the sponsorship of the Cosmos II and Silent Pro Hybrid 1300w powersupply, EK for sponsoring the watercooling components, Lutro0 for sponsoring their beautiful sleeving work, Mayhems for supplying their world class coolants and dyes, Cheapskate for dedicating his time into designing custom waterblocks for the 680s, Brian Garrity for his time as the camera man for the upcoming video of this project, and of course Bill and MNPCTech for everything he has taught me and given me during my time working with him.

Available soon for order. This is a serious chunk of acrylic! Here is what the Clear side panel looks like installed on the Cosmos II. It's cnc machined from .5" thick Chemcast Cast Acrylic with two 120mm fan holes with fastener holes for your own fan grills.

The base diameter is 1- 3/4" with height of 1" to elevate the case for improved airflow beneath it. They've been painted House of Kolor Kandy Red to fit the Rebel Alliance color scheme A few components going into the system Classified unboxing These cards are bigger than 690's... Shiny! Why is quad sli not overkill? 6000x1080-across-three-monitors-gaming is why. Even the Rebel Alliance has to game from time to time! Stripping down the CMII for some modding. Taping off the top to cut room for a 480mm rad. Lining up the top rad Cages removed to make room for a 480mm rad in the front Creating the mounting system for the 480 in the front bezel Rad mounted into front bezel. I will be doing more in between the rad and the edges to make it more connected. Front rad mounted in the case I wanted to do something special with the edge frame work, so I decided on cutting out slots and putting some modders mesh behind it Clamping down the mesh for some epoxying This stuff is the best for all kinds of modding. Epoxy of the gods I say! Removing the stock top panel mesh Mounting a hinge on the top panel for some flap movement Watercooling time! Supremacy 2011 block and black nickel fittings I love the frosty tops on these blocks! DDC's and tops An army of black nickel fittings! So prettttttty! -- Updates 1/1/13 -- Thanks for following guys! Here are some updates on what is in the works... Measuring out pieces to make dual res holder from 1/4" thick Black Opaque acrylic sheet Custom Dual Res tube holder for the EK Res X3s EK Res X3s, ready for mounting What remains of the factory front I/O, this was part of the CM II's top panel. This will flip open. Modified "Laurey" style cabinet hinge, this spring loaded, and found at WoodCraft, http://www.woodcraft....ount-Pair.aspx Spacer for hinge made from 1/8" acrylic, this will be painted later Dual EK Res X3s mounted. This location will be ideal when it's time to fill the two loops. The flip cover, creates easy access for inspecting the loops, if ever needed in the future. The rear cover flips open now too! I wanted to use an ipod touch for monitoring and fan control. This will be mounted in the front top panel and running through the Bitfenix Recon phone app. Making the front phone mount Initial looks of the front phone fan control module. Think Luke Skywalker's targeting computer ;)/> Custom shroud for the reservoirs -- Update 1/6/13 -- Update time! I appreciate the comments and follows guys! I'm very dedicated to making this a very clean build internally, which is why shrouding everything is a must. I also want to keep the interior of the case very open and uncluttered, so there will be next to nothing inside the main compartment other than the mobo and what's attached to it. No drives, pumps, anything located here. It's all about the aesthetics! Cutting 1/4" thick cast acrylic to use as a shroud for the lower portion of the chassis 1/4" acrylic over lower portion which will be easily removable with thumbscrews, 1/8" acrylic shroud on back wall will hide liquid tubing The mid section has 1/2" thick acrylic floor so it's flush with the outter edge of the chassis Using weld-on to attach lip to the tubing shroud for the back wall of the chassis, this will be painted later to match the exterior of the case. Temporarily installing Mnpctech's CM II clear panel to determine the two 120mm fan hole openings in the removable lower chassis shroud The two 120mm fan hole openings are aligned with opening in the clear panel The epoxy on the side bezels has dried and I really like how they look with the mesh Now it's time to do the same thing with the non-window'ed side panel. Cutting the double layered panel was a bit of a challenge, but it's cleaned up and time for more epoxy. I plan to mount an acrylic Rebel Alliance logo on the mesh and illuminate it. As far as the custom classified waterblocks are concerned, Cheapskate has made great progress (though he has reminded me how complex these little buggers are going to be ;)/> This is current design phase with an "X Wing" style backplate that will have the Rebel Alliance logo in the red circle. The layers in the pic are backplate, full copper block, acrylic top, and stainless top cover. Update 2/21/13 Here are screen shots of the custom water blocks and liquid channeled bridge designed by Cheapskate. The blocks will be milled from Copper with Clear acrylic cover and top plate with design inspired by X-Wing fighter wing.These are for Andrew's eVga 680 GTX Classified graphics cards. More to come soon! We'll have a video worklog as well, so make sure you subscribe to MNPCTech's Youtube Channel! Yesterday I made Red Overlay to match the color scheme and installed Andrew's Aquaero into the shroud for the chassis.

Update 3/26/13 Aquaero Shroud - Leak Testing Waterblocks on the Asus Rampage 4 Motherboard Milling the front 480 radiator grill bezel from 1.5" thick block of 6061 billet. The backside has been hollowed out, to save weight. the design was inspired by jet engine intake, but

  22. Log Initiated: August 2012 Status: Ongoing Hello! This will be a quick lil' project for my step-daughter, who happens to be named Lillith, but she goes by Lily. Hence the project name. Creative, right? :lol:/> This is a project based around an old classic chassis, Lian Li's PC-60. I've built a few machines in this very chassis, and it was sitting around and being ignored so I figured, "why not"? Originally, I was going to use a mobo that MSI was supposed to supply for a magazine spread, but...well... I went into that over in the BIO-A10 log at-length. Gist of the story is, MSI is a really terrible company that does not care for their customers/supporters, and I will never again support them or even recommend them to others. No argument about it; simply stating the facts from where I'm standing. Back to the important stuff, here's a mockup illustration to give a rough idea on the looks... And here's the case itself. I've used this exact case a few times for rebuilds in the past, so it's had a lot of service under its belt. But this will be it's final "resurrection" if you will. I didn't mod it a whole lot since it was used with low-heat hardware, aside from the obvious power/reset switch replacement mod that everyone practically did to this case. Let's jump right in. Not a lot for the opening post to the log, but I'm going to move this one along fairly quickly as her B-day is coming up on Sept. 11. Yes, that date, and the same year. I still believe she is the anti-Christ. :hehe: Yeah, that's an old Seasonic PSU in there. Of course. I may actually keep it and just mod it/sleeve it. Who knows? The hardware in it is nothing fancy. An older AM2+ setup, etc. Nothing amazing, but then again a mod is NOT about having the latest/greatest hardware. I am going to use some vintage w/c gear too, since I have it to use. Why not? Let's start stripping her down. I'm going to be dropping a blowhole on the top of the case to increase some airflow in it. Nothing exciting. I'll use the ole jig and holesaw technique like I usually do. Now, need to bolt the top to the jig using the stock 80mm mount-holes... Drill a pilot hole down the middle... And presto. Whoop-tee-do, right? I'll be back with some more! Stay tuned!
  23. New Colour dyes

    We are release 4 New products over the next few weeks. First up we have two New Blue dyes. One being "Deep Blue" and the second being "Ocean Blue" Below is a Pic of all three blues together to give you a better idea of what they look like. Left New Mayhems Deep Blue Dye Centre Old Mayhems Blue Dye Right New Mayhems Ocean Blue Dye The new Deep Blue dye has a deep blue look to it then the older blue dye and can be seen down to the PPM (parts per million) The new Ocean Blue Dye has a greenish tinge to it (very slight) giving it a oceanic kind of blue look (depending on were you live as in the UK its would just look green haha). Both these new colours will be out in 15ml Bottles and both will fill more than 10 to 15+ systems each. When using with Pastel is reduced to about about 5 to 10 systems depending on amount used.
