Best CPU block for i7 3770K Quad Core IvyBridge? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Well if you get thicker wall the OD it going to change so your compression fittings might not fit.

I was just suggesting to get the tube wrap so you can use the same stuff you are now and use the wrap on parts you need for tighter bends.

I used the primochill before I went to hardline and it was able to do some pretty tight bends.

Are you sure that's right? If the inner diameter of the tube remains the same, aswell as the outer diameter, and the only change is the wall thickness, why won't the fittings fit the same? Maybe they will be a bit tighter / harder to get onto the fittings (which is a good thing I would think) but surely it would still fit?

Basically, will 1/8" wall thickness tubing do tighter bends easier and kink less than 1/4" wall thickness tubing? That's all I need to know. Or is it the other way around? (Thinking about it logically, thicker walls = harder to kink? so the new primochill tubing should do tighter bends better.. someone correct me if i'm wrong though)

I definitely don't want to use anti kink coils as I don't like the look they add.

If the OD and ID stay the same, you can't get a thicker wall.

and 1/4 wall is thicker than 1/8 wall, by a factor of 2, lol. 1/4 wall would do tighter bends without kinking but can't do tigher bends because it's not as flexible. If that made any sense. lol

I am personally using a Swiftech Apogee HD. Im now using it on 2011 socket, but i previously had it on top of a 3770k (delidded) and it kept it nice and chilyy. It gets my full recommendation! The mount is very sturdy, and easy install.
And it looks nice smile.gif

If you stick with all nickel blocks in your loop you shouldn't have to worry about corrosion, any more than you would in an all copper block loop.

Keep in mind that radiators are all copper cored, with some brass as well. So even if you're getting all nickel blocks for your components, your still mixing metals with the copper radiators. Both EK and Koolance "advise" using their approved list of anti-corrosion fluids, and NOT Distilled H2O + Silver Coils when using their nickel blocks in a full loop system. I'm not saying it will happen with the new EK blocks, many people have used them without any issues, just an FYI since you asked about it...

Koolance:
Quote:
Koolance's product warranty does not cover the use of 3rd-party coolants, coolant additives, or corrosion. Koolance LIQ-702 or LIQ-705 coolants are strongly recommended to help avoid issues with mixed metals or biological growth. Additionally, do not use aluminum with bare (unplated) copper or bare (unplated) brass in the same system. Do not use silver with nickel in the same system.

EK
Quote:
Therefore until further notice EK Water Blocks Company recommends, not to use distilled water silver in the loop in combination with nickel-plated blocks, nor additives based on Copper Sulphate.

EK recommends only coolants with anticorrosion additive, although our internal test systems of pure distilled water have been found without any problem in 2 months test period. EK Team would like to ask you to kindly spread this information as we would like our users to continue having excellent experiences with EK products.

I use distilled + silver in my CPU loop - which is all copper, and coolant in my GPU loop - which has both nickel and copper. No problems were ever reported about Danger Den Nickel blocks, but I'm using the coolant just to be on the safe side. Temps are great in both. If I ever upgrade my GPU I'm going to get a copper block for it instead of nickel. Keeps things simple...

Oh and my vote would be 1/2″ ID by 3/4″ OD thumb.gif

So aswell as a biocide (no killcoil) just add an a few drops of anti-corrosive to my loop then?

http://specialtech.co.uk/spshop/customer/Anticorrosive-AntiCorro-Fluid-50ml-pid-11820.html this? or is there a better one?
