Kill Coil alternative or not - Page 2

post #11 of 17
0.925 silver will work just the same ... I'm not familiar with the surface area of silver that contacts the water on that block, but if it's greater than that of a killcoil, than that block would work even better than one in theory (while in reality, the level of silver ions needed will probably be surpassed by both, so neither will work better than the other). That's assuming the silver is actually contacting the liquid and not sealed off with any sort of coating.

Thank you all for the info. I am going to open up my CPU block today and write AC see if the silver is sealed off or not.

Personally in that situation I would just run Distilled, and keep the kill coil somewhere in the loop just to play it safe. Won't hurt anything if it is there obviously, but it could hurt if it isn't.

I would highly recommend you not use any other coolants or dye's in your loop as well. Too many things can happen - Distilled + Kill Coil = best overall coolant.

I have decided that I will go with just distilled and a kill Coil. I find the situation of clearing Algie and replacing few meters of tubing alot better, then trying to deal with long term effects(known and unknown) of coolant on my blocks and rads.

Still waiting on a reply from AC about the silver in the block, still going to get kill Coil to make sure, but info is nice to know.

It would depend on how much of the silver is exposed to the coolant, I'd still put in a kill coil myself. Just to be sure.
