Well you surely know EK just changed the Nickel plating process due to corrosion troubles. Probably this mosfet block suffered the same fate, but I wouldn't take the fault off of Feser too. That thing is like poison for your loop.

I do indeed but that was for problems with blocks coming without proper plating and Silver Kill coil related issues. No Nickel plating is going to make a block look like that on its own.

unfortunately the amount of money this project cost and the grief it's given me, I doubt I'll ever go with liquid cooling again.

When I had the processor over clocked I monitored the tempatures and it never went over 62ish Celsius under extreme loads.

And with the paint peeling from the barbs, it only happend to 3 of them, the output on the cpu block, and the mosfet block that is corroded to bits.

I forgot to mention when I noticed the flow was slowing down, I killed the OC and went with default settings on the processor in fear of smoking the system.

Don't be deterred.. Fix it up and go distilled water and a silver coil. what happened shouldn't happen again.

Asus P6x58d-premium
The loop was going reservoir > pump > radiator > cpu > upper mosfet > left mosfet > north/south bridge > reservoir

What I've found was the EK top mosfet nickle plating corroded and the brass started seeding growth as well as creating a dam in that block.. The bitspower barbs internal paint was flaking off and getting stuck through out the loop.

I'm more than certain this has to do with the amount of heat in the system, but are these parts not developed to withstand that type of abuse and prevent situations like this from happening? Everything else was absolutely fine, minus expected build up of deterioration from the coolant.
you have been a member of these forums for how long, and you NEVER saw anyone say not to use additives? i swear there is a new thread every day asking "which additive/coolant should i use?!?!?!?".

mods should start deleting those threads and sending a generic PM which describes the use of the search button. for real.

but seriously, i read the words "distilled + PT Nuke" more times than i can stand. i only hoped that it was as engrained in other people's heads as much as it is in mine. its like Rule #1.

If I had a job and more income then debt at this time i probably would... During the clean up I managed to fubar something and think my Mobo is shot... if there was that amount of heat issue i'm curious to know the integrity of the processor itself. I'm praying to computer gods it's a screw stuck some where grounding something and not a fissure or torn trace.

I tend to read the news articles more than peruse the actual forums. I went with that coolant specifically in case of it getting on the pcb's and not frying them. -1 at research skills.

This wasn't a heat issue, the feser coolant broke down corroded stuff, the nickel plating probably corroded due to the feser junk. Making a huge corrosive gunk mix.
distilled water is actually less conductive then the feser coolant.

Would that apply for the paint bubbles in nozzles as well? Around the CPU block, there is blue discoloration.
