Algae growth can happen with anything tbh. But Distilled is generally the cheaper better way to go imho. Ions are generated via electrical generation, so not even De-Ionized can avoid Ion molecularization.

If she doesn't want Full whack sneaky.gif, then maybe a fan controller is the way to go. You can get a PWM controller to connect to her CPU header ( thinking.gif ) and run the pumps off the controller.

With 2 pumps connected, you have 4 headers to connect to should you wish to modulate case fans away from the board. thumb.gif

Sorry but no. The nonsense of no biocide nor anti corro that has sprung up is utter BS,most of which came from one user trying to be clever with the rest jumping on board. It is not nor ever have been good practice to run straight distilled. The ion absorption rate is greatly accelerated using straight distilled/DI water,by its very nature,they will strip ions from whatever it touches to make up for the deficit. DI water being the worst offender btw...

There is no drive bay for the fan controller I have, there will be no room at the back due to tubing so that's why I want to run it through the header well, for speed control. The case is a Define S Ceadder.

Yeah, wish we had distilled in barrels in asda that would make life easier but most of the distilled I've seen is majorly overpriced. frown.gif

I understand. But I'm reasonably sure if you can fit 2.5" drives behind the front tray you can fit one of these behind it w/o issue.



This isn't the one that is available on Performance but it's the only image I could get to work here. The one that you can get via performance, is SATA powered and would work quite well powering multiple pumps. CPU header is only for Modulation signal. thumb.gif

Oh an Mate, AquaTuning carries them as well. thumb.gif

No point in using one of those with a motherboard with 10 or so headers on it and a dedicated pump controller. I have one of those but its for a little side project I have going on with a massive phobya 1080 rad that needs 9 fan headers lol.

Maybe it's just me but sometime I feel like we (and this may not apply to all) make water cooling more complicated than it really has to be. Just saying is all

a dedicated pump controller.

And two pumps to argue for it. tongue.gif

I get it. But for me, if I can keep cables to a minimum, it really makes a build sing. biggrin.gif

I dunno why but I should know by now that you're Across tha Pond in the UK. doh.gifblushsmiley.gif

Guys, what can cause the corrosion? I have copper blocks, brass fittings and copper/brass radiator. Also plugs in my res are also copper.

Some pictures would help. It's a picture gallery, after all (or is supposed to be, anyway).

I thought I posted this before ... forum must have eaten it.

I am running a loop with mainly soft tubing. It has monsoon fittings, including the Monsoon Silver Bullet Antimicrobial Plug. My liquid is clear, colorless, plain-old distilled water.

Is this ok? Should I be running this with additives? If so, what?
