Now you can tell me those all are pretty close on that electric chart but close is not exactly the same.
The fact is that all metals corrode, eventually they all corrode, even stainless steel. So I have no desire to help that corrosion along by introducing galvanic corrosion in the equation.
My next loop will have only copper, no silver, and no nickel. I wish they made copper fittings but unfortunately, they are all brass so I will have to deal with that.
That what i was thinking of doing initially but for the 7990 there is for now only the EK block, and thats probably going to be nickel plated copper.
Besides as you said, there are no copper only fittings.
Brass is the closest one there is ?
What if i copper plate some fittings ? Will that do the trick ?
What about silver plating the Aqua computer copper radiators ? Would that last longer ?
I am looking to build me something that will last me for years.
There is one aqua computer CPU waterblock made of silver also.
I could plate all the loop in silver. If that would do the trick.
I want to male it so that the liquid comes only with copper in contact, or if possible silver. Going silver will probably cost to muchs, as one needs to electroplate everything, but going copper is easier, since there are allready copper only radiators, and waterblocks, one needs to plate only the fittings.
I just saw bits power has silver and golt plated fittings on sale. So i don't need to silver plate the fittings at least, Only the radiators.
