Looks fine, Might want to not use the EK-ekoolant and the Thermochill red coolant. Coolant tends to gunk up the blocks. Also get some distilled water.

Good Luck.

I know its in the kit but trash the coolant and get distilled water with silver kill koil
add a few drops of pk nuke if it makes you feel better.

if your going to mix metals add something like fessers corrosion blocker to keep the metals from reacting with each other

10 1/2 months and my loop is still crystal clear

Don't mix metals, even with corrosion blocker it's bad news. You won't have a problem though, everything in the kit is copper or brass so you're all set.

Yeah almost every kit I have seen/researched all use the same metals. Mixed metals normally come into play when you don't correctly research the part to see what it is made of. Also distilled is cheaper than the other stuff and is hassle/worry free with a kill coil.

Definitely agree on the distilled. I use PTNuke, but doesn't matter- that or killcoil.

Thanks Jason,
Yeah I have been warned off using coloured coolants, thats why I have changed the masterkleer tube for red primochill one.
I have Deionised water though been told will that will be ok ?
or is distilled water better ?

Only Difference is Deionised may have minute impurities. But Apart from that you will be fine.
