Bitspower True Silver Fittings

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hello, can anyone tell me where I can find 45 and 90-degree angle Bitspower True Silver Fittings?

I can't seem to find them anywhere, not even on the website: http://www.bitspower.com/html/product/product02.aspx?kind=58&kind2=58

It seems strange to me that the shining silver and black fittings would come in these angles and the true silver would not?

Thanks!

I dont think they make those, at least not as far I know. The true silver fittings are meant to be an alternative to kill coils and silver stop plugs, so you wouldnt need more than 1-2 in a loop. Personally, I dont believe in silver.

Silver works, but the less different metals you can put in a loop, the better. Personally would rather use something with biocides in them such as Mayhems Pastel, than anything silver.

I was going to get silver fittings to keep my loop copper/silver only. Is there another type of fitting that would still preserve this and match with my black/silver build? Is it bad to put more than 2? I imagine it wouldn't make a difference to overdose on silver in my loop, since its impact is limited anyhow.

Thanks for the replies

You already have copper in your loop.
Nickel from fittings as well, unless you use all Alphacool fittings.
Than you have brass too from your rads and fittings.
Stainless steel if your CPU's jet plate is SS, like an EK cpu block for example.
Than pewter (or tin?) from the solder in your rads.

Adding more metals to the soup just doesn't make any sense to me when there are other alternatives.
I would advise to use Mayhem's X1, which is both a biocide (like silver) and also an anti-corrosion.
And they have colored X1, or clear.

I don't have any nickel from my fittings. Everything else is fine. Nickel would be harmful if mixed with silver, so I've kept an eye out for nickel plated components. I already have silver from my tubing, killcoil, and biocide. I'm asking if there are any alternatives to true silver fittings that will not interrupt my copper/silver loop. I'm using distilled water. Thanks.

Alphacool's fittings are plated only on the outside. So the wetted parts are all brass, like your rad which also contains brass.

Tbo, I just found out now that BP makes silver plated fittings. I don't know that anyone else does.
And silver/copper is not exactly 'safe' as they are further apart on.the galvanic chart.that nickel, copper, and brass are.
So if you can get rid of your silver, you will have only the pewter, the copper, and the brass to deal with.

I thought that silver is 100% safe to use with copper. After reading hundreds of threads, I estimate at least 60% use some sort of silver in their loop to keep it clean from biological growth. I don't understand what you mean by "not safe." Also, I'm looking for some sort of alternative to true silver fittings as they do not come in 30/45 degree angles. An alternative that will maintain the silver/copper loop I'm going for.

Silver is relatively safe with both copper, and nickel.

Go on Google and look for a galvanic chart.
The furtther away from each other metals are on the chart, the more likely galvanic corrosion will occur.
But make no mistake about it, no mixing netals is 100% safe. Metals will all end up corroding each other over time. If they are very close on the galvanic chart, it will just take longer to corrode.

Now I don't really care what 60%, or even 99% of the others are doing. To me, adding a metal into the loop that does not need to be added is just taking a risk for no good reasons.

Thousands use nickel with no problems.
Thousands use silver with no problems.
But not everyone has no problems at all.

The only way to be 100% safe is to have only copper in the loop.
But that's imposible as the solder in the rads is made of pewter, and copper is too soft.to make fttings out of it. So the threads on your rads are brass.

If you properly sterilize your loop before assembly you wont need silver or any other biocides. For biological growth to occur you need to have a steady presence of microorganisms, by eliminating said microorganisms you can acchieve a loop that is 100% free of biological growth.

@ pepelapiu
The galvanic index is only relevant for metals that are in physical contact with eachother, for metals submerged in electrolysis you need to refer the standard electrode potential.
