Watercooling which coolant?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi guys! I just finished buying my radiator and waterblocks from xspc, and reservoir from aqua computer(I dont know if mixing copper[xspc] with stainless steel[aqua computer] will corrode the rad and waterblocks) My main concern is should i use xspc clear coolant or distilled water + kill coil with pt nuke to prevent corrosion? I know that all radiator and waterblocks corrode, but i want to delay it for my 2nd pc build or 3rd(i wish!! if it lasts that long!! lol) I bought 2 480mm rads from xspc and was hoping to use it for my future build.

I googled this before asking this question and still wasn't sure on what to do because all of them has mixed opinions. rolleyes.gif

Any thoughts on what coolant should i use? Also if you recommend another combination i would be happy to hear it. smile.gifthumb.gif

Do not use killcoil, it can severely destroy your equipment. Heard of some pretty bad horror stories.
Best for the components is to use distilled water + PT nuke or something similar to it.

Not sure if it will corrode your system or not, but personally I will never mix metal types in my loops. Probably it will work fine, and heard many mixing without any issues.

Have fun smile.gif
