I only had mine for a little over a month.
I heard you can tell if there's dust in your loop if it's really bad, I'm going to check mine after I RMA my card.

I knew to avoid EK after a few members were complaining about Nickel platings flaking off. And then EK released their official statement and blamed it on customer for using distilled water. What the.......

I am forever bound to inform people not to use EK products, nickel plated or not. Avoiding EK like its the plague.

Are you using distilled water and a kill coil?
How long did you have it for?
Thanks

I'm a bit lazy, I'm using thermaltake UV reactive pre mixed coolant. Not too sure what's in it. I can have a look tonight and let you know.

It's been two months now 24/7

How are your temps looking? Pictures, perhaps? Never used EK parts, although in outright capability per cooling they seem to be in close proximity of my favorite company (Swiftech). They look way sick, though, hence the picture request.

Haven't had time to catch up with the thread, & from what I infer regarding the EK blocks it's a certain shame for ya'll suffering the dilemma. The nickel is .. flaking off? How'd they manage that
