So, here is why Cool Labs Liquid Ultra should not be used with Copper blocks. (Note, it works fine with nickel plating)





Physically pitted. Just wanted to show, as it was discussed a few weeks back.

blame it on the ga ahh ahah ga ga gallium

Darn...the surface of my block is copper and I'm using liquid ultra. Might have to lap my block and CPU.

It is what it is. I discovered this reaction a few months ago when tearing down my Titan blocks, but didn't think about removing it until doing more research on Gallium. I'm more worried about GPU block damage than CPU block damage as the margin of error is much much smaller. You can't really lap down a GPU block too far.


In other news. Found what looks EXACTLY like plasticizer buildup in my loop, even though I was running Tygon Norprene. rolleyes.gif Acrylic calls my name, maybe next time.

Hey Guys,

Need an advice from all you watercooling gurus..

If I put up a water loop, what would be the minimum you could advise in terms of the radiator sizes to help me fight the summer ambient that goes high 30s?

Will 2 360mm x 45mm EK Coolstream XT do the trick?

Thanks

By the way, my rig is based on an AMD FX so the temp ceiling is quite low..

CPU with the option to include maybe a couple of GPUs along the line..

Cpu on its own is way more then plenty. It should handle a couple of gpu's depending on them though.

Well, the immediate need will be for overclocking the CPU. And maybe in the coming months, add in a GPU then another.

The case is quite small that I could only imagine fitting 45mm rads up top.. But on the front I could go for thicker RADS. But I'm keeping this on a tight budget.

My worries is that during noon time, my ambient goes hotter than a human body with fever. Yes, NO Air conditioning. biggrin.gif

Also just a quick one about pumps. D5s could easily take half of my total budget. Will getting a couple of 400 LPM / 2 meters head pressure be a better option? Seen some fountain pumps that could be candidates. If so, how do I suppose to do this?

NOOB here, Pardon guys.

What is your budget? You probably only need a single d5 for your planned loop as well.

If $80 or so for a pump kills your budget, then I'd look at aio solutions.
