I don't understand...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Having issues deciding on cooling fluid and here is why and maybe you guys can help me out. So here is the thing I don't understand is that fact that EK doesn't want me to use Distilled Water and Silver Coil on the loop while and then my PrimoFlex Advanced LRT required that I don't use anything with Alcohols, Ethylene Glycol or anything harmful chemicals. XD So both side is pushing me to use Pre-mix coolant but then again doesn't the coolants have toxic/harmful stuff in it?

Never use distilled water alone as your main coolant! Pure distilled water offers no protection against biological growth or corrosion.
Always use market proven pre-mix coolant, such as EK-Ekoolant. This propylene glycol based coolant contains all the necassery biological inhibitors, acts as a surfactant and also offers lubricating properties which enhances the lifespan of the water pump. Besides the stated it also offers corrosion protection when used in mixed-metal liquid cooling loop.
Refrain from using strips of Silver (Ag), also known as "Kill Coil" with distilled water alone in your water cooling loop. Besides introducing another metal in the already mixed-metal loop with no corrosion protection, the concentration of Silver ions may not be enough to prevent or to suppress biological growth in the liquid cooling loop.
Refrain from using Copper (II) Sulphate (CuSO4) additive - common trade name "Nuke Cu" or "Biocide Cu" - due to it's nature to react with metals usually found in liquid cooling loop, especially radiators (Zn, Cu, Sn) as well as Aluminum (Al) thus promoting corrosion. Using CuSO4 also accellerates visually discouraging copper tarnishing phenomena.

Warnings/Cautions With the use of different components, materials, fluids, and flow rates, results may vary with the appearance of your tubing. Advanced LRT is designed to work with a large variety of cooling components, however the use of alcohols, Ethylene Glycol and as well as any other harmful chemicals is strictly prohibited and will void your warranty.Tubing will stain if dyed coolants are used. PrimoChill is not responsible for any damage caused by or when using this product. Please use at your own risk.

So what am I am suppose to use? lol

Just use this: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=koolance+bottle

I've been using it for years. Each time I go to "clean" my loop, it's still clean! No gunk, no plasticizer, no discoloration, no floaties, just clear as the day it went in. It even comes with a handy fill tube on the bottle to make filling your loop a breeze.

I'm still using the same coolant I started with about 3 years ago.

you can use distilled water and get PT Nuke and with 3 drops of that in your distilled water you should be good to go

EK dosen't want me to use that since I have a Nickel Block which is why I have not gone that route.

dang really? does it matter in the color or just the clear? i know sometimes the dye can be bad from what I have read around.

I have noticed no dye stains anywhere, but my tubing is blue and the only other place my coolant is visible is the res, but no stains there either. This stuff is magic. I even had a slow leak a year ago. Leaked on my video card for what must have been a week, perhaps a couple drops a day. The fluid made its way all the way under the memory chips on my card WHILE IT WAS RUNNING. Didn't fry it. It's marked as "low conductivity" but dang! This stuff is magic.

Everyone has their own "go to" coolant that's worked best for them, for me I've pretty much been using EK's UV or clear coolant exclusively and never had any issues.
