what the heck?!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
anyway if anyone knows me from a month ago

i just made a c2d rig based on some pples advy ( chozart sdumper mike and a hole bunch of others)

and i just had my loop running 24 hrs primed to see any defects

thing is i just got back from work and i noticed my barbs ( the metal ones )

are turning with a brownish tint (yeah brown )

so im thinking HOLY crap AM I GONNA RUST OUT??!!!

i am going to insert cooling soon but im not as hell gonna leave that the way it is as ill probably clean the barbs off first before i reinsert my loop

i have distilled water and vinegar in my test loop right now

with some algae bacteria killer from the petstore that they use for aquariums and stuff

am i having a right to bugg out?

Oh Burn, You just clean it with vinegar and water not run it in your loop like that...I doubt it hurt it though, just take it apart and clean it off...That brown is probably just the crud out of the rad...

Try taking some thing that is brass and copper and put in a mixture of vinigar and water. I bet it will turn brown.

Also, it would take alot longer than 24 hours for noticable rust to form.

If that's not just some crud on them Burn you might want to get new barbs for it....I hope they didn't corrode that quick.There ain't anything in there to rust Buddy..2 quick shots of scotch and it wont look half as bad...

well after i emptyed and dried the whore it looks fairly ok but i sure as hell am NOT going to do that again...

i ordered some more clamps cuz i figured out a way to cut my tubing usage down

what sucks is the model stacker that got ordered was the one with the psu on the bottom and i was like aww crap now i cant put it on the floor so i decided to outer mount it with push pull panaflos and a swifttech bracket thingy.. it looks like a backpack lol my puter is ready for school

all i rly care about is that i got 3.51 stable and 3.6 quirky on this thing with a new heatsink i put on the NB...i got some ramsinks for the mosfets and teh 8phase until the DFI r600 board comes out cuz i need more SLOTTY!!!!

anyway yeah thanks you guys i still check in prty often
