We highly recommend visiting https://keepingit.cool/vue before purchasing this product so you are aware of all the incompatibilities as well as the limits of Vue usage.
PrimoPrep is a mandatory system prep and must be used prior to filling your system with this Vue product, this is why it is included with your purchase.
PrimoChill’s Vue was specifically developed for that experienced user looking to create an unrivaled aesthetic in their liquid cooled PC. It’s an environmentally friendly fluid that combats issues typically seen in other watercooling fluids. Vue's exclusive water-based formulation allows it to stay suspended longer allowing longevity and an easy flush to any system. With its unique visual traits, Vue is sure to bring another dimension to any loop.
We strive to provide the most accurate photos for color representation. With this in mind, different lighting, viewing monitors and screen resolutions, as well as settings may give a different variation of the actual color. PrimoChill cannot accept returns on coolant based on perceived color.
WARNING: Use of this product with aluminum components (such as aluminum constructed radiators) is not recommended and will void the fluid warranty. PrimoChill will not support or replace fluids used with an aluminum component including radiators. VUE is a water-based formulation that if left to the elements can freeze. Please keep this in mind when deciding on delivery service.

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. Please visit our cleaning guide @ https://keepingit.cool/vue-cleaning-guide
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 circulating VUE 24/7 will breakdown Vue quickly causing loss in effect as well as possible build up in the system. Do not run Vue 24/7. Continuous circulating VUE 24/7 will severely decrease lifespan. Turn the pump off when system not in use. Vue should not be moving for more than 8 hours continuously.
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!
PrimoChill is not responsible for any hardware damage. Use at your own risk.

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.
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.
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.
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.
Will this work with aluminum water cooling loops/components?
Simple answer here. NO!!
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.
