Corrosion Issues - Page 2

post #11 of 24
Thread Starter 
Okay, I'll take the Blocks out of the vinegar shortly. Rinse them off, then put them in a bag of rice or something. Not sure how i can completely dry them unless i let the water evaporate. And yes, i find it very odd too, corrosion in that short of a time period is odd. Maybe it was just those fittings, because not All the fitting were bad, just 2 i believe.

I'd be surprised if the fittings were the catalyst, but it's possible. It's very unusual to see corrosion like that without mixed metals or a corrosive additive in the fluid. There were issues several years ago with fittings being made from aluminum and then plated over and eventually causing corrosion, but now they're pretty much all copper or brass that's then plated with nickel and completely noncorrosive. The same thing is true with radiators- there used to be some aluminum rads (there still are, but not the ones you have) and now they're mostly copper and brass.

Well, the fittings in which are corroding are the ones supplied with the block. I just took a few pics (very low lighting, crappy iphone4) But the Only fittings that are having corrosion issues are the ones that were supplied with the gpu block. Here are 2 pics.

The 2 fittings on the far right are the corroded ones.

I would reach out to HK and send them some pics, they're usually pretty good at customer service I think.

I'm not super concerned since i was having any leaking issues or temperature issues or anything of the sort. I just found it odd that after only a short 2 months i have crap floating around in my loop and corrosion on those fittings. Im just going to replace those 2 fittings and watch my temps and loop closely from now on to make sure all's well. I might shoot them an email to let them know of the issues for there own knowledge/ reference. But i need to wait for all the blocks and everything to dry, idk about the whole leave it in a bag of rice idea. But i want to put my comp back together at some point soon and make sure everything works properly.

rice is a bad idea, it will leave a dusty residue.

I wouldn't put those two corroded fittings back into the loop in the chance it might take the cpu block with it. barbs are cheap so just play it safe and buy new ones. the cpu block looks fine and it looks like you already know how to take care of the oxidation.

and im not sure if you've took apart the gpu block before the corrosion, but some of my copper blocks came with black marks identical to the ones you have in the op. it might just be machining marks or some sort of fluid. a paper towel cleans it up nicely.
