This for e.g is 27 to 30c
We got the nano size down to 10nm how ever i have sitting on my desk some 40nm size as well. We do not know though if this will ever hit the public domain at 40nm due to the cost involved.
A note to users though. Most if you will never see the reaction above it will be a smooth move from one colour to the next. The effect above is done by me slowing the pump right down on edge and its not recommend any one does this.

Well when I saw the 1st rig pics slowing down the pump came to my mind, it isn't "normal" to have a 2ºC delt inside a component... Glad you came out and deliver that infor right way
What I can't say bad thing about it's the looks, as a liquid used for demo rigs it shall look amazing! The color gradient formed must be the wet dreams of many builders when presenting their rigs to the general public. And ofc when doing that you'll for sure slow down your pump to get such an amazing efect.
Would you mind to post some pigs at regular pumping speeds ( aka 100% of a jigway for exemple ) ?
When i get time ill do a video of it at regular pump speeds. The colour just looks the same and merges from pink to white or Purple to Blue over an amount of time (depending on temps).
A question: Based on your fluid is Ice Dragon ?
Signatures make my posts look huge... but I'm not humble enough to completely remove my signature, so I kept this note explaining it.
We still working on the fluids but more info will come forth when were ready.
slowly getting there
I wonder if there is some way to have one chameleon fluid and to be able to "regulate" it's color change temp point with whatever means by user?
Also i somewhat see need to artificially worsen or enhance cooling (with regulating fans/pumping power), if ambient room temps fluctuate :/
In general idea/realisation of color changing by temps seems very cool to me , but imho practical realisation with need to change to different fluid with summer or winter temps or with different temps at night/day might bring too much hassle in real life unless room temps are constant throughout all the year with use of some conditioner or alike, which might greatily reduce target market niche.
I wander if some of my following ideas might work:
Eg. is it possible to move color change point by pressure in loop and add some regulating valve in place of some fitting? Or .. dunno .. passing different regulatable weak current through fluid for same result of moving color change temp point? (might introduce extra corrosion?)
Or rather drop idea of fluid changing itself, and release another product: some led strip that can be put inside tubing to light up from inside fluid, with changing it's brightness by temps measured by thermal probe screwed in on block outlet.

its some thing i was chatting to some one about how ever getting some thing like that to work is on another level to what we can do at the moment. Were working with a few companies to get the new mixes right and there going out there way as it is to get the base produces down to the sizes we need for it to effectively work in a loop. If we were not dealing with restrictive systems and micro channels then it would make life much easier how ever with the trends in water cooling changing so much we have to move rapidly with in the constraints of the other users and manufacturers. Im sure as time progresses we can evolve further.
Worrying about summer temps vs. winter temps isn't really a consideration for a dye of this kind.
@earthwormjim actually the new fluids are being created to be long term. Unlike aurora which is short term at the moment. We have over 6 new technology's were testing in the new mixes.

again a new product in dev
The whole test system is passed though 2 test rads (qaud pass) and a EK block with the worst restriction plate we could find and a long tube res laid flat (checking to see how the liquid reacts having plenty of places to lay) Due to some systems not working with aurora this is a totally new mix built from the ground up to fix these problems wich all so is thermo reactive.

Will this stuff work with an Apogee Drive II?
These new version were aiming for it to work in every thing. @hi Kayin
