Now that I think about it...I'll need to put something between the copper radiator and the aluminum case to preclude the two non-similar metals reacting deal (correct?).

If you didnt tell us we wouldnt have known! To me , that rad looks snug in there!

Dont worry.. as long as you dont get the two surfaces wet and have their ions floating about ( like how the ions would float about if you mixed both metals in a distilled water loop ) , galvanic corrosion wont occur . smile.gif great looking rig man.

^this.

galvanic corrosion is a problem is when water is making contact with both surfaces in a loop. (ie: if you were to use a passive aluminum finned reservoir with a copper radiator, then you'd be in brown water for sure)

Thx and appreciate it...I might change the loop a tad (go gpu->reservoir->240->360 instead of GPU->240-Reservoir->360) to reduce the spaghetti...

If you are gonna go Pump > GPU > Reservoir > Rads , wont it cause a whole load of turbulence and also lower your flow rate? I'll rather you go Res > Pump > GPU> Rad > Res .

By the way , has anybody tried Delta Electronics WFB1212M 120x25mm 72CFM, 34dBA, 2100rpm on a MCR320? Im using S-flex F 1600 rpm but i feel like the dead spot is of the fan is huge and airflow isnt really impressive. Im not using a shroud. Share your views with me please!
