Coolant for Nickel Loop - Page 2

post #11 of 22
Distilled and Kill Coil.
You know a Kill Coil = .999 Silver right?

Edit: No need for antifreeze. Unless u bury your pc in the snow.

Will I need anticorrosion additives in my loop too?
Cause there is some copper in the radiator and over a long shot the Nickel will corrode too.

I use distilled + silver coil. I read in a couple of threads that .999 pure silver fittings will work as well as a coil. One thread said that 2 fittings = coil and another said 4. The biocide silver is supposed to be 99.9% and to note is Sterling is 92.5%.

Here is a link to making your own silver kill coil. You can order a strip of silver from most jewelers. A kill coil is 1 to 2 grams but one guy got a 10 gram ingot because he said it did not move in the reservoir.

I think most would say you need no corrosion inhibitors. You are trying to prevent accelerated galvanic corrosion that will damage a component. That is unlikely without Aluminum and you are careful to avoid that. Let me know if you wish links on galvanic corrosion. You may still get some black oxidation corrosion of the inside of your copper CPU block over a year of service but that will usually come off with dish-soap and a toothbrush (safest). Dilute vinegar such at ketchup (also spelled catsup) will work but may remove some copper.

Good luck.

1.)great post

2.)I don´t know if you watch King of Queens but that ketchup/catsup thing reminded me of a scene and is cracking me up right nowxD

3.)Yes I have heard about that certain type of corrosion.
The corrosion of Nickel is supposed to take place much slower than copper and if it happens it is easier to clean and not as aggressive I believe.
My loop contains 80% Nickel , 15% Copper and 5% Messing.
I think I will do wihtout anti corrosion fluids.

I will use this coil:http://www.specialtech.co.uk/spshop/...pid-13036.html

with dest. water

Edit: sry I hope I did not break any forum rules by posting this but I just had to xDD

1) Thank you

2) Thanks for the funny video. But I never knew that catsup versus ketchup had anything to do with education. Maybe I went to the wrong schools.

3) Here is a link on galvanic corrosion that has a helpful table. I suspect we are somewhere about normal environment to controlled (no seawater thank goodness) but are mostly interested in relative activity of the metals. Your Nickel is unlikely to interact much with the groups around it like Copper. But Aluminum mixed with Nickel may rapidly corrode Aluminum (higher number = more active) while keeping the Nickel spotless. Then there is the quantity factor. A tiny bit of something is less likely to corrode a large amount of something. It's kind of interesting to read about but seems best to avoid putting Aluminum in the loop.

Kung Pow. Is Messing German for brass? I was looking in a Music Dictionary and Google so wanted to double check. If so we are OK.

Yes Messing is german for Brass sry I didn´t realize that myself
Very interesting and informative table I really appreciate it!

EK really caused a mass epidemic with that PT-Nuke Nickel corrosion accusations.

Those will do exactly nothing to kill bacteria or prevent its growth.

If they were operating in the range of the UV spectrum that can harm bacteria, they would cause eye damage and potentially skin cancer from exposure to them.

Distilled + PT Nuke + Killcoil is all you need.

Change the water every so often and you should be fine. I change the coolant in my loop once a year, its seems to be enough.

Distilled and killcoil is best, if you really want colour then add mayhem dye.
