• Corrosion protection for Copper, Brass, Steel, Nickel and Aluminium Proven to ASTM D3306 and BS6580 standards

whatever that means

According to this, the cpu 370 w/1.6mm plate was 0.2C better than the Supreme hi flow nickel, and with similar flow. To me 0.2C = same performance, since probably block to block variability, and definitely mount to mount variability is all greater than that. Even different shaped cpu ihs can cause that much deviation.

That being said, you could always take one for the team and run the EK nickel block with approved EK fluid, and see what happens. Although satisfying my curiosity is probably not high on your to do list.

hehe considering its gone be my first water cooling setup then I dont feel much like experimenting hmm it says that th 370 will take 3/4 fittings, ive got no idea what that means im a bit green in that regard any chances some one could just post some fittings I should go with? I was told to get tygon tubbing btw

I've had blocks ranging from a year to two months that have had the nickel failed. This whole situation has put me off nickel blocks completely and now I just go with copper blocks. I'm taking a huge loss in selling these blocks or spending more money to have the nickel stripped.

If you get tygon tubing, get b 44-3 beverage tubing which is plasticizer free, dont get tygon 3603. Ill let someone else chime in on fittings...too many to choose from and personal preference.

Make it simple: Bitspower. Lol. You can buy them pretty cheap @ FrozenCPU.com. They also sell Compression Fittings, which are a +1 version of regular Barbs. As they offer double the protection in which the Compression Fittings act as a well....compressed fitting. For lack of a better word, lol. With Barbs (get 1/2), you just buy tight tubing (may I prefer 7/16) and squeeeeze the tubing onto the Barb. Barbs = Fittings btw Khalam.

SO! If ya wanna go for looks, and tight fitted tubes, get 1/2 Barb and 7/16 tubing~ =) Like me! Lol.

edit: and yes, Tygon Tubing is Beautiful. I just stuck with Primochill.
