1st ever W/C loop - Page 3

post #21 of 27
Yes, you should be able to fit the 355 and top into 2 5" bays without too much trouble. The one big thing to note is that they have an inlet on the top and outlet on the side, rather than both being on the side with the stock top. A lot of the time this actually makes tube routing easier though.

No, copper and nickel are fine together, as is brass. The thing you need to avoid is mixing aluminum with any of the above, as this can lead to galvanic corrosion. Basically copper, nickel, brass and stainless steel are all close enough to each other in the galvanic index, but aluminum is a lot further away. Get a big enough potential difference and one metal will migrate to the other one.

Bottom line; copper, brass and nickle play well together. Aluminum does not.

Sadly not in England. You can either buy distilled online (which gets expensive with delivery charges) or you have to hunt around for it. I found a pharmacy that was willing to order some in for me at £6 for 4L. You can also use DI water from Halfords, it is good enough.

The KillCoil or PT Nuke can be found from SpecialTech or WC-UK.

Edit:

Both SpecialTech and WC-UK have GT-1850's in stock too, so you can get those whilst you are at it. WC-UK also has distilled water available if you choose to buy online, I leave it to you to work out which site comes out cheaper.

Thanks GingerJohn. was looking at the link for the pt nuke and noticed the silver coil, would this be better? and would I need to change it every now and then?

They both do essentially the same thing.

With PT Nuke you need to add more every time you change the fluid, but as you only ever use 2-3 drops one bottle will last a long time.

The silver Kill Coil sits in your res and doesn't need replacing, just change the fluid and you are good.

One small issue that has come up in the past is EK's refusing of RMAs on their reservoirs if PT Nuke was used. I believe this has been cleared up now as it was shown that PT Nuke doesn't cause any issues, but worth a double check.

So the coil would be better then really because I can just put it in and leave it

Yeah, EK's warranty has been adjusted. You can use PT Nuke freely now.

Yeah, that is why I like it. Plus it adds a bit of e-bling to my loop...

Well, this is the reply I got from Eddy yesterday:

Code:
Hi!

So far we can’t say anything.

If you do use pt nuke, use it like described in manuals. Few drops per litter.

 

But at EK, we definitely recommend you use premixed coolant with anticorrosion additive.

 

Best regards, Eddy

Subject: PT Nuke and EK Reservoirs

 

Hello

I understand that there was a question raised recently about the use of PT Nuke with EK's acrylic reservoirs, and that it would void the warranty to do so.

I was wondering if this was still the case, or if this matter was still under investigation.

Regards
John
So it looks like it is still up in the air "officially". I really can't see PT Nuke causing the problems that were associated with it though (cracking plexi res's).

Sorry for the late reply, been without internet for the past two days. I have resorted to going through my phone right now!
