Corrosion of reservoir - Page 2

post #11 of 22
I have that same exact res which was in service for about 4-5 months and never saw anything like that, I ran a kill coil and straight distilled. I still have that res stored away somewhere.

When Phobya adds this disclaimer to their products, it leaves an uneasy feeling with me that prevents me from buying any of their products

so it is common for phobya? redface.gif

EK, with EK copper blocks gave me the best water cooling experience when I still water-cooled. The nickel stuff was awful though. I'd avoid nickel. Also, check to make sure your radiator is copper and brass. Some are aluminum. Aluminum reseervoirs are a no-no.

Yes you can reuse your res.
And no, you should not have reoccuring issues if you clean your loop properly and take appropriate steps.

thank you very much. i will clean the loop at this week. but the area where corrosion occures in res made me in doubt to re-use it. but i will use it and this is the second advice to re-using thumb.gif
