Yes if you have time it would be appreciated. thumb.gif

No problem but like I said it will be the weekend of May 3 till I get back in the US if you are ok waiting that long. I am sure others would be more than willing to take a similar photo in the meantime. thumb.gif

They are non-standard 8 pins, you need to make sure your PSU can deliver 28 amps on each of the 8 pins (normally they only carry 12 amps each). And the 8-pins must not share a rail with CPU or Sata/Molex. And probably you need the wires and pins to be 16 AWG.

Although CLCs are a relatively new product. Such things didn't exist when i started to use water.

I don't think that could be considered a stepping stone to water cooling. tongue.gif

I used a single stage back in 2010 on my 24/7 folding/gaming rig for maybe 3 months. The noise started to drive me insane.

Looking for advice on how to remove nickel plating from copper.

I've been dealing with the awful original nickel plating from EK for sometime now and I'm done... I actually never found bits of the nickel in my rads or pump after numerous tear downs, so I don't know what happened to it, but I know the majority is not on the blocks anymore.

Can I use acetone to remove the rest of the nickel plating or is there a better home safe way?


Thanks

Pics to come later but here's the skinny. first for reference, my loop:



While disassembling last night, I noticed a fleck of verdigris on the center pipe in the Aqualis reservoir. After getting everything apart, there's a nasty film in my Supremacy block as well as more verdigris, a *very* nasty film covering the entire bottom of my reservoir, as well as a brownish staining on the Aqualis pipe.

If my loop weren't 100% copper pipe, I'd imagine that it's plasticizer.

What's strange is that everything was totally flushed prior to filling. It was filled with nothing but distilled and then Mayhem's Biocide to even out the Ph level to 7. I'll be honest, I haven't checked it in about 2 months, but even then it was still at 6.8.

There's too much gunk for it to be a contaminant, so it has to be a chemical reaction. I think the only metals in my loop are copper, nickel, and brass.

I know there's a ****ton of variables that could be at play here to determine anything in particular, but I wan't to possibly change things up when I reassemble the loop to prevent this from happening again. Perhaps it's only an aesthetic issue, in which case I'll probably be swapping out the reservoir for something non-transparent. Anyone with copper pipe come across a similar situation?

*edit*

I found a pic that shows some of it, circled in red:

Would love to see pictures of this... Are they EN series blocks? What coolant are you using? No acetone will not work. You would need to pretty much shell blast them.
