I just built my my custom loop 3 weeks ago. I am using nickel en plated plexi blocks. No corrosion whatsoever in mine.

All i have in the loop is store bought distilled water and Feser's anti-corrosion and biocide mixed into the solution.

This does worry me though. I shall take a closer look at my loop tomorrow morning.

I just checked my computer now. Blocks still look good. Although I did find some air bubbles in one of my gpu blocks.

Well I hope all turns out for you. There's just no more excuse for ek now with the quality of their blocks.

some epic remarks there..

Seriously, I think it's all marketing tactics and it's getting a bit out of hand.. I wonder how many people here that blast EK when they have not experienced EK corrosion first hand, most of it is "hear say"...

I suggest you take pictures, send email and ask them directly, forum is here and please share with us your results.. even if they claim their email is confidential.. bla bla bla... They are worse than the bankers I work with in my firm.. If I am not happy with a company or they have wronged me, I will take it to the forums with proof and let the community know.. Bottom Line..

Disitilled water becomes slightly acidic because it has no impurities that buffer the absorption of CO2.

Regardless, he still shouldn't be seeing corrosion on plated parts in 8 days.

such a shame. Aside from these corrosion problems (and poor customer service) EK appear to have some nice looking products and a very clean and professional looking website.

Eddy doesn't like it here, from when the first round of corrosion problems from the earlier nickle plated blocks started appearing. He ducked and dodged the issue, and was blasted for it...and rightfully so. Xnine is right on target, he was blaming everything under the stars as the problem. Even after RRTech had some extreme res photographs of a brand new block posted showing massive plating problems under a powerful microscope.

That's when they discontinued the "original" nickle plating, and came out with the electro-less nickle plate. Nothing will cure the problems caused by plating a unclean base material. It's just that simple.

No matter that it was plainly pointed out, Eddy refused to admit the problem and continued to blame his customers. When in fact, shoddy workmanship was the source of the issues then, and most likely still is.
