That sux. Guess no more Monsoon for me either. Unless one of you O.G's can explain to me that there's absolutely no reason to keep silver out of my my ALL Copper/Brass Loop that is running Mayhem X1 for coolant....?

This is exactly what I thought of when I read this first post quoted. What about the guys having Koolance or EK products in case they fail?

But Geno says it's an upgrade. That means better guise!

That's the case with me. I have 3 loops planned and 2 of the 3 have ek nickel blocks and the 3rd is Mips nickel blocks, so, yeah. Guess that shows I should have read the product description better. Didn't think that they would sneak that in there I guess. Damn it all!

I would not think that having the barbs being antimicrobial silver would be an issue. I have been running systems for years now with a silver antimicrobial silver kill coil in them without any issues that I have detected. I do not personally use a bunch of nickel plate (some elbows, etc.. - not many of the blocks as I like the copper look more) - but I do not see where that would cause an issue either.

Could be wrong, but not an issue I have seen to date myself.

wait wait wait, i thought silver + nickel = non issue.... Is the general consensus on this flipping now?

Other than the whole barb/compression color mismatch, I just think Monsoon should not have assumed we would like to have silver in our loop at all. Maybe the amount of silver is too low to affect anything nickel, but then why have it at all? Some coolants also don't play well with silver.

I emailed Gene about this, let's see. If anything, he is great at responding back.

Consensus isnt science.

Nickel and Silver are fine.

Who even knows anymore, lol, but if ek is going to cover my back then I guess I'll be the guinea. I am way too ready to go on all of this to change gears now. I just would feel a little more comfortable if I could've kept the silver out.

I tried what you guys said, loosened the ekd5 top and water started to come out from the sides. Didn't over tighten it back, there's still noise but after 3 seconds when the water goes down a little. It comes back up when I shut down the pump.
