Is this corrosion?? Yes, yes it is. Nickel Plating. - Page 9

Well i got news that my new block has been shipping out to my distributor! So hopefully by the end of the week ill have it, but ill be happy if i get it by next week lol

I ordered new tubing and clear EK-coolant this time, its a different approach from the distilled water and killcoil, and a lot more expensive but hopefully it will do the job and i wont have to tear apart my system after just 2 months.

In the meantime im in the process of modding my 800D to fit the 480 rad at the top and the 360 at the bottom! check it out.

Got a new block in the mail, i set up my rig even though i wasnt really done with the case. Ive been running it with clear EKcoolant for a few days and no issues to report. Hopefully it'll stay that way. Ill be tearing apart my rig again in a few days due to new parts again, at that point ill take a closer look at the block but i really dont feel too worried.

Off topic - can i reuse coolant? Like if i drain my rig after a week or so, do i have to replace it with new stuff??

With distilled it was easy, replace. At 99 cents a gallon it made sence. At 8 bucks a for 1000ml, different story.

I'm in the same boat. Personally I refuse to reuse fluid, though a pre-mix might be safer to do so since it has inhibitors built in. Would be a bad idea to reuse distilled.
