Few general questions regarding W/C and types

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I want to add a GPU waterblock to my loop, but have a few quick questions. This will be for a 6970 and I have the standard Rasa kit running with a silver coil.

Is it safe to use a nickel GPU waterblock if I have a copper waterblock already in the loop? I've heard mixing the metals can cause issues.

Did EK fix their problems with their nickel waterblocks?

Does anyone know when 7950 waterblocks will be out? Just curious on this one, I probably won't buy.

Yes, copper and nickel plates are fine. I suggest you to introduce anti metal corrosion and anti algae additives to the loop. since you have ek stuff, they recommend to use their ekcoolant products, (i happen to use, no problems)
EK has a revision of nickel ( EN nickel, electroless) no one complained about them yet, I'm using one of the new revision nickel. working good for me wink.gif

I don't know anything about 7950 blocks, probably in the process of making them
