OMG! Chameleon sounds awesome! Especially if it goes from blue to red (cool to hot)!

Also, can't wait for Aurora 2, think I'll schedule a WCing rebuild in for Q4.

Aurora 2 sounds great - I'd love a long term pearlescent blue fluid.

The Aurora only lasts about 4 weeks before it goes a bit grim.. Aurora 2 if it solves this issue will be epic! Looking forward to it :)

These coolants look very nice, and I heard about the Chameleon stuff a while ago and watched a video on it and I must say it looks very good.

But I have heard that they block pumps and rads etc after so long meaning you have to replace the fluid every 12 months or so, because you have to remove all the gunk that has built up.

If that's not the case then I may well use the Aurora stuff in my next build.

What I would really like would be UV Aurora!

When he said clean your system with IPA, I immediately thought of Indian Pale Ale.

Really? I thought he meant to clear your system with Insolvency Practitioners.

@Parge - Take super nova add some UV dye sorted ....

If i look at the home page the aurora fluid is not for home usage and only for presentations and taking photos, also the waterloop must be small otherwise the fluid will slow down and even stops the pump. So it looks all nice but it is practical useless.

Is aurora2 going to change that?

We’re aiming to make it perform much like any other coolant in terms of longevity and we’re nearly there – hopefully around the end of the year or soon after we’ll have Aurora 2 ready but each coolant does take years of formulating and testing before we release it.

Will that actually work? Wow, ok. (Might wait for Aurora 2 though)
mayhem 21st August 2012, 15:31 Quote
Yes it will work how ever its not effective under UV as in the pearl doesn't look as nice. The pearl in Aurora needs white light to reflect back at you were as UV light is unseen by the human eye so instead it will look like a slight mist. The only way for some thing like this to work is to block the light but that's a whole new ball game ;).

Mick is a thoroughly nice chap, helped me 1 to 1 with different issues in my system.

Steve is great too ;)

Creativity + science, my favourite combination! Will be watching Aurora 2 with interest.

I am buying mass amounts of this just to support this awesome person.

Good god, a breath of fresh air. Seems like a lot of the interviews and comments I hear from the wider tech community are from absolute douchebags (looking at you, Linus Torvalds and Jen-Hsun Huang) lately. I'd second Star*Dagger's take, if I had the cash to spare.

This dude's awesome - he sounds like a kid with a chemistry set. And that he actually gives a crap about the safety of his customers? Maybe I've been spending too much time hearing about the average corporation, but damn. I'd like to give this guy a big ol' kiss :D

Looks great! Sending this on to some industry peeps in case they want to use the red one in future product promotion (mods etc)!

;)

Just a heads up for bit and Mr.Wood: the video in the article is blocked in Germany (UMG - GEMA) perhaps it was falsely detected, or indeed UMG content. Nothing a proxy/vpn couldn't fix, but an annoyance for "normal" users... but ok: anyone interested in specialty dyes should know his/her way around that.
mayhem 22nd August 2012, 09:40 Quote
If the video is blocked it might be because of the music. We are working on hosting our own vids soon as You tube is a pain with this. How ever you can all ways use a web proxy to get around this.
Bindibadgi 22nd August 2012, 11:41 Quote
I know you're just a small company but you need a better vid dude. It needs swirling res plus a watercooled PC example, and what the bottles look like, and how many colours you do imo. I admit v.hard to do 'smooth camera' panning or movement without a rig though.
mayhem 22nd August 2012, 14:40 Quote
Aurora 2 With Chameleon watch slowly you WILL see it change colour
