Recommendations for WC fluid....

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am gather up the final parts for my WC setup. This is my first venture into WC. I would like to know what kind of fluid to use in my system. Basic system, AMD A10-6800K. That is it.

Thanks.

a few options distilled water with a kill coil, Mayhems pastel, or deionized water with a kill coil.

Distilled water with a couple drops of PT Nuke. Ran for one year without draining and was still crystal clear.

I would recommend distilled and killcoil, but I think I just saw some algae after moving my rig.

Distilled or deionised water and corrosion inhibitor like Primochill Liquid Utopia or similar. Car radiator fluid is good too.

All water block manufacturers recommend some type of anti corrosion protection, a silver coil or PT Nuke copper sulphate solution by themselves do not help with that and Koolance even says not to use Silver and Nickel together at all.

With corrosion protection any metals should be fine together though.
