EK HF Full Nickel non EN

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I can buy a brand new EK Supreme HF Nickel block for about 15-20euros from a friend since he went air cooling. My only concern is that its not the EN version. Di you think its worth the buy or i am going to have any issues? If the block starts to flake like ihave heard, will i have any problems with other hardware like the pump for example?

Thanx for the fotos Loko. I just want to know if there will be any issues like problem with pump or dirty water or something similar. Inside of the block aesthetics is of no concern at all.

Been running four blocks that are full nickel non EN for six months now with no issues...I don't know if I'm just lucky but it seems fine to me, and for that price I'd say grab it.

Give it time. My quads just did at 11 months, and the amount of corrosion is in order of time I installed them.

Now I have the same block and yet to experience the corrosion. I was wondering when it starts to flake can you just scrape the rest of the nickel off? Its it a plating where it chips and flakes or it more like bonded to the copper?
