If you're going to use an anti-corrosive I would suggest Mayhems X1 coolant concentrate
. It comes in bottles that make 2 liters when mixed with distilled or deionized water, comes in clear or colors and provides both a biocide and anticorrosion protection.
I THINK the only wetted metal on the hk gpu block is copper; the steel is for the front face plate, but I'm not entirely sure. According to the internet, Copper, nickel, and brass all play rather nicely in a w/c loop, but what do you guys think the level of risk here is? I'm not a chemist and galvanic corrosion isn't something I recall from college.
Also, my current plan is to attach the thermal probe to one of the extra inlets on a radiator; should I expect any trouble there?
