Mixing metals ?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,

I was wondering if I needed any anti corrosive fluid as I have copper and nickel in my loop:

EK-FC580 GTX - Acetal for GPUs
EK-Supreme HF - Full Nickel
EK-FB KIT GA X58 (UD9) - Nickel

Cheers!

You should ALWAYS use an anti-corrosive fluid when using mixed metals.

Copper and nickel are fine together. All you need is anti-algae fluid or a silvercoil.

+1, from everything I've read anyway, that's what I'm currently running (copper/nickel) and no problems yet.
