Ah, that I haven't tried smile.gif I'll do that tomorrow. Yes, the flow seems good. I'll load realtemp tomorrow under and off load and see what happens. Will post back. Just hope I haven't damaged the cards long term. They've been through a lot the past three days! Totally paranoid about leaks now. I've got teatowels laid across the pcbs and filling up the case just in case. The experience almost talked me out of watercooling. But not quite.

this is worth considering since im looking for a silver coil atm.. no reason to do so if it wont work with my blocks.. ? !

also, im using "ultra pure" distilled water (filtered 11 times or something) should be distilled and deironnized from what I read :S would this make a difference?

Thx for info!

Correct sir!

Yeah don't use de-ionized distilled water, use plain distilled water. The deionization may affect your copper blocks and copper rads.

If all your rads and blocks put copper in contact with the water, it is smart to use silver kill coil. If you have ANY nickel plated blocks, which are less common, silver would not work then. This is why silver is fine for most users, because it is friendly to copper.

I like how many Scandinavians are on this board. Skål! medieval.gifcheers.gif

We've all been there mate. I almost lost my mind when my pump exploded because I was a newb and didn't fit it properly to my reservoir. You learn with your mistakes and it makes it more fun and less work in the future. smile.gif
