its corrosion. next time, don't use coolant. use distilled water + liquid utopia (DI + LU) thumb.gif
you can't do squat about it...just get a new block.

Its actually a typical EK Nickel flake,nothing to do with the fluids.

Here is my build of my Level 10 GTW. It's my first water cooling setup and hack job. Please note that all the work was done in Saudi Arabia so some stuff is hard to get a hold of to make it look all sexy. I have two 590 GTX's coming in so I will be redoing the loop setup so any tips on rerouting would be great. Also I'll include a link with the entire build soon. Well now on to the goodies!

Why do they even make aluminum water cooling components?

You're supposed to use a coolant ie something with a corrosion inhibitor! The days of straight distilled are gone lol.



And why would he need s new block? There's nothing mechanically wrong with the block. The faults are only aesthetic.

I got a EK EN-Acetal Supreme-HF off H4rd5tyl3, opened it up, cleaned It and its all good no flaking, is this block going to be ok with distilled water and kill coil?? He used it with distilled water and pt nuke. I I know it was around this Gen when ek had all the flaking issues, I just want it to last me till haswell comes out.

Looking for suggestions in regards to help with cooling multiple gpus. Do you run just one connector between the two cards so that you have just one loop through both cards? Thanks

There are still aluminum stuff out there. Most notably, the closed loop systems use aluminum internally. So it makes sense to use an aluminum rad with, for example, a modded H50.

If an older EK block held up to distilled with biocide, then you can probably run the same. I ran a kill.coil with a rev.1 HF for a few months and though this was pre-EN I didn't have issues. EN(s) were to address the issue of nickel failure and it mostly did. There are some cases around where they did failed but not as prolific as the previous nickel blocks (non-EN).

Things are shipping. Excited to go back to water but a little sad on leaving air cooling. More money being dumped but hey, that's water for you thumb.gifbiggrin.giftongue.gif

Ok so what would be better for block then, pt nuke or killcoil, and what are the pros and cons of using each??

And trust I told myself aircoolings enough, the temps with my rv03+h80+690 are really good, but browsing threw this thread every other day changed my mind, I'm ordering the last few things for my build this Friday and then I put her together.... $1000 later rolleyes.gif

Yes.

If it was going to go bad,it would of done so quite quickly,The percentage of actual flaking issues was very low.
