Just staining. It's ant-corrosive which can be useful in mixed-metal loops, but otherwise it has a worse thermal conductivity than pure distilled so most don't use it. It does negate the need for a biocide though. For the staining and performance issues I usually recommend distilled instead, but anti-freeze won't do any harm to the parts.


Edit: Have any of the Koolance RP452x2 owners experienced increased restriction/flow problems with their new babies? I'm hearing reports that they res is very restrictive and I'd like to get to the bottom of it before I pull the trigger on one. I'm not talking just about the bleeding issues, but specifically flow restriction. Martin's testing didn't seem to show any problems which is why I'm doubly confused. Anyone with the res please feel free to comment or PM me if that's more appropriate.

The mixed metals is actually why I'm running the antifreeze. I know that it doesn't cool as well as straight distilled water, but my flow indicator is aluminum(got it before I knew better), and it would start to corrode on the inside until I started to run the antifreeze/distilled mix. The way that the tubing clouds up actually acts as a reminder for when it's time to clean it. Nice side effect, the antifreeze mix I run is UV reactive.
If you think that it's a WIP, then take a look at the first picture. That's it up and running. I took some pictures of it while I had it down for new PSU and cleaning because some stuff gets hidden once it's all put together. If I've learned one thing about the TT kit I started with it's that the pump bearings like to bugger up over time if you don't clean them when you clean the rest of the loop. What I wouldn't give to be able to afford a new rig and better water cooling gear for it. Guess I'll have to save up for it.

Rerouted the loop...had an externally mounted 250mm res, opted for a 150mm internal. (needed to redo anyway to add the sound card)

Hm, I forgot to post photos after I went Tri-SLI a few weeks ago:






I intended to replace the turquoise SLI bridge, but apathy set in.. and I've actually grown fond of it.

The staining isn't that big of a deal. Have used anti-freeze for 2 years now. One of our machines has had it in there for about 2-3yrs without having changed the water and the tubes are a bit cloudy but that can generally be fixed using limescale remover (tubing is cheap anyways!). Never had any negative side effects to my blocks, except for the ones with thin, restrictive channels. Would occasionally get a bit of gunk in there but it just meant I had to flush it out once ever 4 or 5 months to keep it clear. No biggie
