Tubing/reservoir

Recommended Posts

catkicker, that resevoir is aluminum. I would recommend you dont use it unless all of your waterblocks are aluminum.

 

Copper blocks and aluminum resevoirs dont play nice.

 

That's what anti-corrosives are for. From what I know, it's very hard to pick parts that won't end up giving you dissimilar metals in the loop at some point or another, so you use anti-corrosives to prevent that from being a problem.

if you use car coolants you'll be fine although i would check it every 6months or so(all cars have a mix of metals in there cooling lop)

Lots of advice here:) Thanks! I will try the t-line I think. It's cheap and IF I don't like it I will just buy a reservoir.:tooth:

 

I wonder what the sig-CPU can do with water cooling :drool:

Using "car coolant" doesnt guarantee 100% safety from corrosion. Brass in the radiators and copper blocks are fine, brass and aluminum are fine. Aluminum and copper are not ok.

 

 

I know this is true but aren't most of the radiators for wc kits aluminum and most waterblocks copper? Did they just not do there homework?

Koolance usually gold plates their blocks, so it doesnt matter what their radiator is made of... Koolance is kind of goofy like that. Cheap on the radiator, but then they put gold on their blocks.
