silver kill coil, not working

post #1 of 205
Thread Starter 
Update: It seems to be corrosion. However I can't explain it. There is no aluminum in my loop. This still doesnt prove that it wasnt the kill coil that caused it though. If for some reason the kill coil was not silver and was in fact some other cheap metal it could have caused it. At this point I cant be certain either way. I have corrosion in a loop that should not have corrosion.

Update:
Just pulled both vga cards out and there full cover blocks are covered with black gunk on the inside. Has to be algea. So either silver kill coils dont work, or my kill coil is not silver. Bought it from frozencpu.com ( if I remember correctly )

Here is the blocks after soaking in vinegar/distilled water for about 12-16 hours. Still clear signs of corrosion, but they are cleaned up a bit. Im going to try a lime and see if that gets the rest.

Hi. Have had my water cooling loop running for about 6-8 months. Distilled water and kill coil. The water is now looking a bit cloudy (just a bit) and I can see sediment in the reseviour. Before you ask, all my water cooling hardware was flushed/rinsed thoroughly with a near boiling distilled water/vinegar solution.

The kill coil in use is a iandh silver kill coil from frozencpu.com. I will try and get pictures up later so you guys can see what Im talking about. Hopefully someone on here can identify what the problem is.

It's probably not growth. Cloudy tubing is likely it leeching plasticizer. My tubing has a very slight haze after 6 months, and each time I completely drain my loop, there is also a very fine sediment. I was thinking it had to do with my prior Glycol fluid, but it's doing it again on just distilled.

Even though you flushed your Rad / system very well it is still possible that it could just be more flux or what not coming lose and floating in your loop.

its not plasticizer, as its in my res not my tubing. Very unlikely it is flux, although not impossible. Im obcessive about how I rinse my rads. I rinsed it probably 20 times with near boiling distilled and vinegar, and then another 10 times with just near boiling distilled. Nothing else in the loop, just distilled and kill coil. No additives.

I will take pictures tonight. Its not plasticizer, of that I am positive.

I'm fairly new in water-cooling, but I've read threads on issues 8+ months ago where the nickel was flaking off nickel plated blocks, which caused the water in the loop to have floaters. Do you have any nickel plated blocks in your loop?

jesus.. not this again.





anything wrong with your watercooling system? "DO YOU HAVE NICKEL?"



and at op pics would help alot, as this could be many many many things.

Plasticizer doesn't need to be bonded to tubing it could migrate through your loop, gets stuck in your blocks and can enter your res and settle in it but ye a pic would help not that I'm doubting, could be dust or other particles that got in while you were filling or flux since you can never get rid of every bit of it even if you flushed 20times.

Thanks... that's the reason why I try not to comment much since I admit... I'm still clueless at water-cooling... and building computers. Thought it could be a possibility since his loop is 8 mounts old. I did not purposely try to steer the subject in the wrong direction... so I apologize for that.
