Allegedly, it's a bad idea because of galvanic corrosion. Others, though, say the solder used for radiators is an issue that most people overlook.

I would prefer to use water and silver to avoid the headache-inducing odor of the EK liquid.

If an anti-corrosive can protect copper and nickle from the solder then maybe it can also protect them from silver. I don't know.

Personally I would like to see a loop that's all one metal instead of the mixing of nickle and copper. The cynic in me wonders if it's done to make galvanic corrosion more of an issue. However, if the solder is indeed an issue then an anti-corrosive would need to be used regardless.

I would take the silver out of your loop, its just one more thing capable of causing galvanic corrosion, and iirc its less effective than biocide anyway.

I don't see silver listed anywhere on those blocks product pages...

The ASUS AI Suite is reporting the waterpump at around 4800rpm.... Actually now that the room is very quiet I can hear the pump and the volume goes down as I change the RPM.

What is a reasonable RPM to leave the system on. I can vary the RPM in AI suite based on CPU temperature.

are you sure you are changing the pump speed? whats your pump rpm at 100%?? i can hear mine very loud at 100% which is about 4500rpm.

will do then. I also use deadwater. I havent had an issue yet but I havent monitored my loop very closely for any corrosion.

i have mine running at 35% (1400rpm) all the time, more rpm make no temperature diffeence in my loop, at 70% speed and above my temps start to get worse...
i wouldnt change it based on cpu temp, the constantly changing speed would annoy me and yield no real benefit

I have a weird head pressure problem that I haven't been able to figure out so I leave mine at 4800 rpms and temps are fine.

Anything under that is no good. Not sure if I have a fitting too tight somewhere near the parallel block configuration that is blocking flow. No one seems to really know.

Guess I'll find out when it's time to totally disassemble and clean when pascal comes out.

At 4800 I can't hear my pump at all but I can feel it vibrating alittle.
