I've been using distilled water alone for almost 3 weeks now, should I drop some mayhems biocide and some anti corro or wait some more?

I think I ran my loop with plain distilled water for about a month, nothing showed. The key for any type of water cooled setup is to keep it away from sunlight.

What are your suggestions, wait for kill coil to arrive or put some biocide and anti corro already? smile.gif

I'm a little biased since I only use silver so I'd recommend that. I don't have any personal experience with Mayhem's biocide or other fluids for that matter (other than Feser UV dye → stay away). redface.gif

I'm not looking to water cool my rv03, I'm looking at options for watercoolering the rv04 when its released, it has two 180mm fans in the front

Ahhh, ok. In that case. Get the MagicCool 2*180 rad. Hopefully they make a thicker version too. thumb.gif

Straight distilled here, no additives. My tubing is solid in color so that's not even an issue and my Reservoir doesn't get any sunlight since Darkside sits with his back to the window, which has a decent set of blinds on it. thumb.gif

I just ordered a Micro res on ebay from HellFireToyz. They're in AZ so I'm hoping it will arrive in the next few days. Svc.com is always out of stock and they never update their items. No word from Alex, I'm thinking I should just email their customer support frown.gif

That's what you should do. If you need a good person to talk to I have their CS email. I left a comment on their FB page and they had me email them. It's round here someplace. I never delete important stuff. smile.gif

I am a RRT regular,we used to be EK 'fans' but the CS fiasco ruined it for EK...not so much the flaking issue so much as the way they handled it....then Ek demanding 10k from sidewinders for selling the block which rubidium tested sealed their fate....

I also run DI and a kill coil,just drained my loop to test Mayhems Chameleon...no plasticizer issues and the water,although didn't smell fresh,was clear and clean

Interesting, thank you for the replies.

I guess I'll wait a few more days, I'm disabling the whole rig apart in 2 weeks anyways since I'll be moving to my new house, if it doesn't arrive by then, I'll just use mayhems biocide and anti corro to be safe.

Okay, so I have a question while I am still in the design/shopping phase

Which of these set ups would work better...
