Flushes clean from loop

If properly prepped Vue is an easy flush. It's one of the main reasons our staff swears by it. Oh plus it looks pretty awesome!  


Visual indicator useful to illustrate fluids flow patterns

Unlike any traditional fluids, Vue illustrates each and ever corner of your custom loop in a magnificent way. In addition, it will also show where lack of flow may be occuring helping encounter possible issues in water flow.

Helpful Vue facts & Full Disclosure

THE TRUTH BEHIND PRIMOCHILL VUE

Vue is a great product with an incredible appearance but there are some things you should be aware of before using Vue. Most importantly it that it has this great (or not so great) ability to find debris in a system. Once it finds the debris, it likes to stick to it and likes to build up. Jaytwocents had so much success with his Vue because he has taken such good care of his waterblocks as well as the other cooling components. He cleans them out by hand between each loop and tears them apart looking for any issues whether it is oil or whatever other debris may be left behind. That is why it is SO important to have a spotless system when using Vue. 

Adding Vue to the system also requires more work than just pouring it in, but a spotless loop is by far the most critical. We will discuss this a little later on.

Will you get build up? Hard to say as we do not know how well your system is maintained and what was ran through the system prior, or what manufacturing residue could have been left over. One thing we have recently determined is that CyroFuel is leaving a residue behind that cannot be cleaned with normal flushing. What else we know is that spotless loops have zero issues running Vue perfectly.

We want you to enjoy Vue and be set up for success so we are providing full disclosure on what we have found.

 

Why is Vue coolant not for me?

  • I want a simple maintenance free loop
  • I'm a First-time watercooler
  • My PC is always on and I don't put it to sleep or turn it off ever. 
  • I don’t have time to watch system for issues
  • I have aluminum water cooling components

WHY IS VUE COOLANT FOR ME?

  • I'm an Experienced Water Cooler
  • I Can trouble shoot issues and find solutions
  • I'm okay with opening blocks for cleaning
  • I'm okay with rebuilding loops after issues
  • I Use my pc for 6-8 hours a day
 

Bay reservoirs

Bay reservoirs pose a difficult challenge for Vue as some manufactures require a gap of air to remain in the reservoir for it to function properly. Any additional air introduced to a loop running Vue will cause Vue to breakdown overtime.


Aluminum water-cooling components

Aluminum water-cooling components are not compatible with Vue as over a brief period Vue breaks apart and loses all Vue effects.


Mayhem Pastel, EK Cryofuel, Thermaltake C1000 coolants

Mayhem Pastel, EK Cryofuel and Thermaltake C1000 are popular coolants that people switch over to Vue. Although they are water-cooling coolants, we have found that they leave a residue/build up on the components in your system. We have not been able to find a way to remove this build up with a simple flush of the system. We have had some success in getting Vue to work with system that had this coolant prior with a total tear down of the system and complete scrub of the cooling components with warm soapy water.


Thermaltake RL Series Radiators

Thermaltake RL series Radiators are constructed of aluminum and are not compatible with Vue as over a short period of time Vue breaks apart and loses all Vue effects.


Enermax NEOChanger Reservoir

Enermax NEOChanger Reservoir has an aluminum cap that comes in contact with Vue and breaks it down over a short period of time.


Silver Coils,  Silver components, Silver plated components

Silver Coils, Silver components, and Silver plated components are not compatible with Vue as the release of silver from these sources break the structure of Vue and will cause the fluid to lose all effects.


Addition of water, dyes, anti-microbial, anti-corrosive

Addition of water, dyes, anti-microbial, and anti-corrosive will cause Vue to break down as the chemical balance in Vue is altered with the addition of any of these. If you need to top of your loop than it needs to be topped off with Vue of the same color. Do not mix assorted colors of Vue as each color is balanced to specific levels that should not be altered.
 

Prior to cleaning hardware check the compatibility of the components with the coolant (see Incompatibilities Reference Guide above).

Clean hardware is essential for introducing PrimoChill coolants. Unfortunately, not all manufacturers take the time to clean new hardware.  Debris such as cutting oils, plastic shavings, copper shavings, and O-Ring Lubrication are often left behind on new hardware. We recommend thoroughly cleaning all components whether new or used.


Preparation

 Make sure that you have the following cleaning supplies:

  • Warm Soapy Water (Use Dawn Dish Soap) 
  • Non-Scratch Scrub Sponge
  • Paper Towels
  • Clean Hand Towels
  • Clean Toothbrush

Cleaning the Components

With any loop it's always a good habit to follow these steps weather or not you use Vue. Below is a thorough breakdown on how to create the best results for any watercooling loop.  

Blocks

Pay close attention to corners and flat surfaces. This is where build up begins as smooth flat surfaces move the coolant along great but when it's time to go across or move to an area where the material has been machined this is the problem area.  Make sure this area is as smooth as possible and clean from debris.  Vue will hang up on areas that have material sticking out or are rough.  


Fittings

The inlet and outlet should be free from debris and the threads thoroughly scrubbed.
 


Tubes  

While one of the most inexpensive components, proper cleaning is essential because tubes move coolant through the system. Additionally, they are often bent for ascetic purposes. Pay attention to previously bent pieces as there may be leftover lubricants or oils on the component. These substances can cause issues if pushed through the system and into other system components.


Pumps
Reservoirs

Gently clean reservoirs so that no cutting fluids are left behind from the threading process.  Most pumps are enclosed, but inspect for cleanliness if otherwise.
 


 Radiators

Sealed radiators are tricky. It is difficult to see the inner workings because the radiator is brazed together and water tight. Inspect the radiator via the end ports and give it an aggressive shake. A silent shake indicates that there is no debris in the unit. If you hear debris, move it to the end port so that you shake it out or use a magnet tool for retrieval. Next, hold the radiator over the sink and slowly add hot (as hot as it gets) water. Fill the radiator up and set it aside to be drained later.
 


Reassembly

Before assembling your system or putting O-Rings back in place, make sure that all the parts are 100% dry. Pay close attention to the O-Ring channels because this is where failure in a water-cooling system usually occurs. Make sure that the O-Ring is squeezed into the O-Ring Channel and that there are no gaps. It should look solid around the channel and the same in each location of the O-Ring. To prevent stripping, do not use a power tool to tighten any screw on a block top. Hand tightening ensures that you will be able to remove the screw later.
 

Make sure all items are cleaned prior to putting back together (see Vue Cleaning Guide).

  • Install components and hand tighten all fittings to ensure a good seal. Make sure everything is tight, and check for leaks by placing paper towels under fittings’ locations, including areas that fittings enter blocks. Check for moisture on the paper towels and address these leaks as soon as possible. 
     
  • Choose prep fluid and add it to the loop to check for leaks and to ensure proper configuration for the loop to move water. Use distilled water to check for leaks, drain, and move on to prep flush. If there are no leaks, start with a prep flush.  There are two types of prep flush:
     
    • Sysprep is for loops that have never seen a coolant before, which means any aftermarket coolant with or without dye. This prep is designed to treat the loop and get it ready for new coolant. It has some properties that help with setting up a barrier for corrosion as well as microbes. 
       
    • Sys Reboot is for loops that have seen coolant before dyed or not dyed. Reboot is effective at removing previous dyes from the loop, especially from the radiator. It also works very well on neutralizing some coolant additives that are left behind from previous coolants. Reboot also has properties to help set up a barrier for corrosion as well as microbes, eliminating the need for Sysprep.
       
    • PrimoPrep™ was created with Vue in mind and should always be used when using Vue. The pre-treatment helps control the fluctuation of the PH levels in your system caused by high levels of copper typically due to large capacity radiators.  With this treatment it also prepares the system for use of coolants in a mix metal closed loop environment leaving the guesswork a thing of the past. 

For more information on all our preps and directions please visit the link below. 


  • Slowly add the prep fluid to your loop and avoid letting air into the system to prevent bubbles from slowing down the process. The more bubbles the more flushes are needed. Fill the reservoir, cycling the pump and repeating the process until the loop is full. is normally the best practice, for prep and the final coolant. Address leaks immediately, and if there are flow issues look at the entire loop to make sure that the coolant is flowing in the correct direction. Now it is time to let the system work its magic. We recommend running the prep for 24 - 48 hours. You may use the system during this process. After the wait period is over, drain the system and inspect the loop for any debris that may have dislodged during the flush. If all looks well it is time to do a final rinse. 
     
  • Rinse the system until the water runs clear and is bubble free. Next, drain the system completely. The goal is to get out as much leftover fluid. Tipping the system over, back to back, and upside down will help free any fluid hiding in corners of blocks and in tops or ends of radiators. You may be surprised on how much fluid remains, so take your time.
     
  • Slowly add the coolant and fill the reservoir ¾ of the way before cycling the pump. Cycle the pump for five seconds, or until the water level drops on the reservoir to ¼.  Stop and refill the reservoir ¾ of the way and cycle the pump again. Continue to do this until the loop is “bled” of air and residue fluid. Once the system is bled it should be very quiet.  If you here churning, knocking and bubbling then there is still air in the system. Once it is quiet, put the cap back on the reservoir and top is all the way off through the port in the top.  

    This process should take 2-3 hours depending on the size of your loop and it's complexity.

VUE PRO TIPS

Tip 1: Slow your roll

Running your pump at a slow RPM/speed will help keep your Vue together. Running at high speeds will create a shearing effect on the exist of the pump and inlet and outlets of water blocks.  The shear is essentially ripping apart all the goodies inside your Vue coolant. You will start to see a collection of white residue on the inside of the tubes if so time to crank down the pump speed.

Tip 2: Get Rocking

Almost every case on the market has room to mount a radiator to the top of your case.  When using this mount it can cause issues with Vue if you do not properly bleed all of the air out of that radiator.  Take your time and tilt/rock your case back and forth and side to side so any air trapped in the radiator will hopefully get forced out.  This can time a little bit of time so go slow and keep an eye out for bubbles.

PLEASE BE SURE TO READ ALL THE WARNINGS BELOW TO AVOID VOIDING YOUR WARRANTY.

  • PrimoChill has gone to great lengths to make Vue as easy to use as possible, but please keep in mind that Vue is for experienced users looking for that extra aesthetic and requires more attention and maintenance. During the filling of your loop, induction of any air is NOT recommended. Allowing the pump to suck air into the loop or running it dry may cause PrimoChill Vue to break down and fail. Slowly add PrimoChill Vue to your system to make sure you are not adding any additional air into the system. It’s recommended to have direct manual control over the speed/power of your pump when adding PrimoChill Vue to your loop. Run it at a medium-low speed with the ability to turn off the pump quickly if necessary. Cycling your pump on and off during the filling process will help in reducing the amount of air that you allow into the system.
     
  • For best results, use Vue with a newly built watercooling loop. If this is not possible, first ensure that each component is thoroughly cleaned by hand and dried. Next, use PrimoChill System Reboot to flush the system prior to adding PrimoChill Vue.
     
  • Vue has a HIGH attraction to dyes. It's possible that Vue may leach old dyes out of components that had previous dyed coolants ran through them (radiators in particular). No amount of flushing with water will remove all previous dyes. This may result in Vue changing color slightly. For best results flush your system with PrimoChill System ReBoot prior to using VUE in existing systems that contained dyed coolant.
     
  • Continuous running of the pump is not recommended. Allow the PC to rest when not in use. Run the PC for at least an hour every couple days enabling Vue to recirculate. It will thank you.
     
  • Please be advised that the color and texture of Vue may change slightly compared to the fluid in the bottle over time once you put it in your loop. Vue may develop clear areas in the top of the reservoir and tubes as it reacts with metals and chemicals in your loop resulting in a slightly thicker fluid. This will not impact the performance of Vue. Running the pump will return Vue to its original state.
     
  • This product is NOT intended to be used in conjunction with any other coolant or additive. Vue contains biological inhibitors so no additional coolant or additives are needed. Adding anything extra could result in adverse effects and will void all support and warranty. Please keep a close eye on the fluid and parts in your loop. Drain and inspect immediately if any sign of growth or corrosion develops. PrimoChill recommends replacing Vue every 4-6 months (or sooner) for best results!

What is this coolants life span?

 As will all our fluids the key to any long lasting coolant is to prep the system correctly, and closely watch for color shifts in the coolant.  We do not give this product a life span number as it is to difficult to predict each loop that it is going in.  This product does not have any solid suspended particles so depending on the system and its complexity it could last up to the 4-6 month recommendation change out period.

Will this work with aluminum water cooling loops/components?

Simple answer. NOPE.

I had PrimoChill True in my system before how do I get it ready for PrimoChill Vue?

If you have had any coolants in your system prior to PrimoChill Vue we HIGHLY recommend flushing your loop with System Reboot.  System Reboot was created just for this exact reason.  Reboot has a special formula of cleaning agents that love to remove old dyes from the system that could potentialy cuase issues with PrimoChill Vue.

Is PrimoChill Vue safe to dispose in my sink or toliet?

Yes it is 100% safe to dispose of in your public sewage system, but we do not recommend disposing of it in any septic system.

Is this fluid ok to use with my microfin water cooling blocks?

This fluid does not contain any suspended particles so use with microfin blocks is a non issue.  You may see a small amount of Vue gathering in small tight corners where there is less flow from time to time.  But a simple cycle of the power should help work out the areas with less flow and get Vue cycling a again.

Will PrimoChill Vue settle over time in my cooling loop?

From time to time you may find certain areas in your loop that get little to no flow and collection may appear in these areas.  Also some alloys of copper and some flux may combine with Primochill Vue and cause it to settle faster. Vue can stick to roughy machined acrylic and rough edges on fins. This is also normal and does not affect cooling. These are all known issues and simply cycling your system/pump a couple times will get the fluid back to normal.
