 Water Cooling LOOP Maintenance 

In order to maintain optimal performance for your water cooling system, consistent upkeep is essential. Among the vital responsibilities is the renewal of the water cooling liquid. Within this all-inclusive manual, we will address frequently asked questions and provide a step-by-step walkthrough for the procedure of changing the coolant in your water-cooled personal computer.

Do You Have to Replace the Liquid in a Liquid-Cooled PC?

The act of refreshing the liquid (coolant) in your liquid-cooled computer stands as a crucial upkeep duty. As time elapses, the coolant can degrade, losing its efficiency in dispersing heat while amassing impurities that impede its function. Deteriorated coolant has the potential to result in diminished cooling effectiveness, potential thermal complications, and even harm to your computer’s parts.


How Do You Refill Your Liquid Cooling PC?

Refilling your liquid cooling PC is a straightforward process if you follow these steps:

1. Gather the Necessary Tools: Before starting, ensure you have a suitable replacement coolant, distilled water, a funnel, and a cleaning kit like Mayhems Blitz to flush the system.

2. Drain the Old Coolant: Shut down your PC and disconnect it from the power source. Carefully drain the existing coolant from the loop by removing the drainage port plug or carefully disconnecting the loop at a low point.

3. Flush the System: Use Mayhems Blitz Cleaning Kit to thoroughly flush the radiator and coolant loop, removing any residue and contaminants.

4. Mix the New Coolant: If using a concentrate, dilute it with distilled water following the manufacturer’s instructions. Mayhems Ultra Pure H2O is an excellent option for mixing with coolant concentrates.

5. Refill the Loop: Attach the funnel to the fill port and slowly pour the new coolant into the loop until it is filled. Keep an eye on the reservoir level during the first few hours of operation, as air bubbles may displace some coolant.


How Often Do You Change the Water in a Liquid-Cooled Computer?

The frequency of coolant replacement depends on several factors, such as the type of coolant used, the loop configuration, and the system’s usage. As a general guideline, it is recommended to replace the coolant every 6 to 12 months. However, if you notice a significant drop in cooling performance or encounter any cooling-related issues, consider replacing the coolant earlier.

Remember, using a high-quality coolant with additives like Mayhems Water Cooling Systems Inhibitor can help prolong the coolant’s effectiveness and protect your water-cooled PC from corrosion and biocide growth.

Maintaining a water-cooled PC involves a series of essential tasks, and replacing the water cooling liquid is undoubtedly one of them. By keeping your coolant fresh and clean, you ensure optimal cooling performance and safeguard your valuable hardware from potential damage. Following the steps outlined in this guide, along with the use of high-quality products like [Mayhems X1 Clear Premixed Watercooling Fluid](https://www.bykski.co.za/product/mayhems-x1-clear-premixed-watercooling-fluid-5-litres/), will ensure your water-cooled PC runs at its best for years to come.
