my heatkiller 79x0 has CLU on it with the GPU dye, just worried that in X amount of time ill have a hole and leak if the clu eats the copper block alive. i'm going to redo my waterblock tomorrow but i hope i dont gain more than 10C, with CLU i have ridiculous low temps on a high oc 7970 , would hate to lose all the temps frown.gif

Lol, bad move man. CLU is the best there is but it isn't good for all applications. Most of these contact surfaces are made of Copper, if not then nickel, but I'm sure it eats copper up pretty bad.

It doesn't eat copper, it just blends with it. It'll leave a nasty stain that's all. No performance loss or anything, if anything it'll improve heat transfer.
It does eat through aluminum but not copper nor nickel.

Please don't post opinions. it's frustrating enough when you spread false information and a new member reads it and spreads it to more people. I'm not trying to be rude, but honest.

i appreciate the help ivanlabrie, i did some research but could not draw a conclusion, i knew with aluminum it was a no-go but i was worried with over time on copper if it would actually eat through it. i know it can get thick and "weld" to the block but for long term use i dont know if i should just replace it with PK-3 or enjoy the great temps

Well I did use it on my Silver Arrow's base which is nickel plated copper, for like 4 months. No problem whatsoever...

Man I'm amazed you used CLU regardless of even researching a bit of how it's NOT GOOD for most cpu coolers or blocks for that matter. More importantly, removing it off the IHS is a real big pain and it surely does void warranty.

And there's nothing false with what I said. It may not eat it theoretically, but it screws it up, leaving you to the same situation.

To be fair, voiding warranty by aggressively cleaning the IHS is really not even relevant in a delidding club is it? It's like saying that running an aftermarket air filter on your turbocharged BMW E39 would void the warranty on the intake system.

I believe all it does is stain, and Intel was fine with warrantying my 1st 2600k after I used IC Diamond on it which (surprise!) stains. All hard metals have pores and grooves (most liquid metals too) so if one soft metal is easily pressed into those grooves, hello stain central. Since the lettering is a laser etch, it's going to suffer.

I'm using CLP for direct DIE to nickel plated block and high quality copper block and apart from difficulties in cleaning the stuff works great for cooling and no bonding or metal corrosion going on. I have been using it for about 8 months.

It of course is the best form of heat transfer. But using it for GPU's wouldn't make much sense as they already run really cool under water. For CPU's, it's different.

Have you done a comparison with the before and after temps with using a different really good TIm like MX-4?

CLU on my H100 block for..... well since October to tired to count right now tongue.gif your fine with copper trust me just leaves a stain is all.

mx-4 stained mine because I didn't clean it for like 3 months.

Anyway, this pump is terrible besides its cooling potential. I switched the connectors and from my luck followed a picture that showed the wrong way to do it... so now I fried my 2nd one. Still probably works but no lights. I know molex sucks in general but the one they used on the h100 is unacceptable.

Either air or custom loop i'm so fed up with this closed loop crap. Hope my uncle doesn't mind a semi destroyed cooler.
