I wanted to keep nickel out of my loop but ended up getting the Koolance 380i which is nickel plated. Some have claimed that many nickel plated blocks corrode when mixed with other metals. I dont have any supporting evidence though. At first I was worried about it but then I kept running across users who claimed the majority of nickel plating problems were mostly due to chipping and not corrosion, so it seemed like the two were just getting mixed in together.
Black would look sick indeed. I dont really think you can go wrong either way. Nickel plating can crack and chip, you need to be more careful with it. Other than that I dont really think you can go wrong. Maybe clean out your loop and blocks once or twice a year to be on the safe side.
My loop contains only nickel and copper. No brass core rads, no aluminum.Edited by jdm317 - 3/29/13 at 5:03pm
