Yeah good luck to you on that res I really like the looks of them,hope it works out O.K...Have you seen those" Cape Cora" passive coolers you can use one or two or ten, you can buy them one at a time and just bolt them togather they are aluminum to though, those German's always amaze me they can come up with more trick stuff than you can shake a stick at...You know they design their stuff for low flow systems and it still cools well..

So far I've googled for a 2 hours and I havn't seen anything about a anodized aluminum not working with copper. The only thing I have seen is a post on some other forum were the guy says it will work as long as it entirely anodized.

quote
"The anodizing will form a protective layer over the aluminum that will prevent cathodic reactions. As long as the entire surface of the aluminum has a uniform layer of anodizing you'll be OK. Also, make sure that the anodized layer doesn't get scratched or otherwise damaged (on the areas that come in contact with water)."

heres a link the that forum the guys post is 4th from the bottem:
http://episteme.arstechnica.com/6/ub...5&m=4260933192

Wankerfx: nope its not a transformer its a Gigabyte 3d Aurora. The 2 rear exhaust fans give it away. well i guess you could mod a transformer to do that too, but anyways yeah its a Aurora

sandiegoskyline: You could be right, the pump will require around 25watts so i may have to buy a new one. Sucks because that one is only 2 and 1/2 months old.

Well you should be fine with the Alu then.

Yeah, I'd get a new PSU. Stay away from Thermaltake this time around.

Hey, I'm glad you found some more confirmation about the anodizing, I think where I heard it from was years ago some guy had a customized hot rod and was anodizing some of his water cooling components to stop galvanic corrision, it was like some toally over the top thing..I'm an old coot that was twenty or thirty years ago..I'll keep looking around for more confirmations for you anyway..I think one guy that responded to you "drummer4life" I know that's probably wrong,sorry drummer,was mentioning that you were running your rig with fluid-xp that does have an anti-corrosive in it I checked at DD..I would just make sure you keep a proper amount of a anti-corrosive in your loop and you should be O.K. Keep that nice RBX all nice and pretty...I'll be looking forward to seeing wc rig put togather...

I think just to make extra sure, maybe I should call XSPC or frozencpu.com and ask them what they think. When talking about anodized aluminum the first thing that comes to mind is aftermarket car parts. And it works well for them but then again they have aluminum blocks or are a similar metal..

Side note: I asked friend of a friend who is a plumber, and his answer was the anodizing and the "non-corrosive" fluid XP should keep the reaction minimal but will still happen over time. He thinks it would last a year and I'd have to change the reservoir because the aluminum will take the hit in the long run. And also change the liquid every year.

this is gona be high maintenance.. sheesh


Is this the first time anyones tried anodized aluminum with copper parts on this forum?

i would recommend a good 500-600w psu

ill probably pick up the 500w to give a little boost (50w) to help power my pump when i get my wc setup going

The one I was thinking about was when they still used copper rad's in cars. That was why he was doing it... that and a sacrificial zinc anode...Told you, I'm an old coot...I would change my fluid about every six month's or so, that is what people have reccomnended to me any way using a normal system...You might want to think about a different res...I know that sucks, but it might save you alot of problems...Wouldn't be so bad if the weren't so nice looking!!!I'm thinking about putting four of those Cape Cora passive rads on the right side of my case in a seperate loop of there own just for my hard drives..Performence Pcs has them there under heat exchangers if you want to check them out...P.S. Why not start a new thread on it ..Anodized aluminum with copper blocks...you might get more responses on it...

yeah thats a pretty good idea actually. But as far as this res, I was thinking of lining it with a kind of plastic. it wouldn't cool the liquid anymore but it would work longer. I've just gota find a material or a plan to make that work.


sandiegoskyline: thanks for the recomendation, but i've never heard of HIPRO. If i do buy another, I'd want tit to be sli ready so I think im going to have to spend $70 to 140 on a new one...
