Is there any reason to not run nickel and copper blocks together aside from the possible plating issue? (assume the plating is perfect)

No harm, as well as using brass. Aluminum may cause issues though (unless used in an all aluminum loop). Whether the nickel degrades or not is still a hotly debated issue (especially certain companies wink.gif ).

Rads are made of copper so haven't we all been running nickel and copper together for years well for those that run nickel blocks.. don't really see that as an issue with anything even with imperfect plating.

I knew about aluminum because of Koolance back in the day (I don't think they still do). Alright, I'll just have to cross my fingers on the plating, hah. No big deal to me in the end.

Yeah, yeah, everyone complains about that. I ain't finished yet redface.gif. I'll wipe everything down when she's finished. No point in doing it now since I'm still working on it. I'm waiting on a booster to complete the build but the loop is pretty much done (minus the finger print removal task). I need some gloves biggrin.gif

I feel some of your pain. My Lian Li picks them up pretty good too, but most of them wipe of pretty easy. I did make the mistake of eating pizza before working on it doh.gif those were not easy to get off.

Most rads are made from brass and some from copper. Some rads have copper or brass pipes with aluminum fins for the (heatexhanger).

I don't mind though. I'll probably still get the two connections I need to complete my loop. Should still see a radiator in early April. smile.gif
Get a bag of medium size rubberbands and use one or two on the fitting for grip. Works awesome for finger tightening fittings as well as loosening stubborn to remove collars. biggrin.gif

Which one where you thinking of getting?

haha yeah, fingerprints make me want to buy a Bitfenix case with their SofTouch coating. It's pretty cool.

...I still can't believe that Microsoft made the majority of their Sidewinder X4 keyboard piano black... it looked real sexy when I first opened it... now it looks horrific doh.gif
