Kill Coil alternative or not

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hi OCN

I am new to OCN forum, but have been cramming my head full of information, while at work. I am currently building my second water cooling system. Well the first was using a Zalman produkt so doesnt really count. For all accounts my first actual water cooling system

For my CPU I picked up last year a cuplex kryos HF .925 silver. My question is, is 0.925 Sliver enought to count as a kill coil, or should I pickup silver with a purity 0.999.

On AC webpage under the produced description it's says, ".925er Sterling Silber gefertigt" (0.925 Sterling silver platted/finished).

the .925 will most liekly work but i can't help but assume that the .999 is better. and do you know if it is just silver plated?

I am going from the product description, not 100% sure

Edit:
On sidewindercomputers it states it as solid.

The Kryos block should be sufficient, but why not just add a $6 silver coil that we know for certain works?

yea i agree.
or you could go the premix route.
the coil i had didn't do much.
i had crap growing in my tubes within 6 months or so.
I use feser-1 coolant now and i havent had a problem at all with any sort of fungal/bacterial growth.

thank you for the info, still out what I will use. There seems to be as much against distilled/killcoil as there is for. I keep reading about discoloration from coolants, but does that also happen with clear coolant?

no, the discoloration comes directly from the dye in the coolant.

Gotta be careful with coolants like Feser one...stuff is very aggressive and may corrode fittings/blocks.

i've never heard/seen this???
i've been using feser-1 for a few years now and i've never had a problem.
(other than a little staining, but it actually looks kinda cool )

though maybe the problems are coming from people having different metals in their system that corrode each other.

i forget which ones...i think it's copper and steel that have some sort of negative effect when in a loop together. (not sure about this though)

either way, should always try to stick with one metal in a loop anyways...*cough* copper *cough*
