The other reason is the "air bubbles" when you let water drop from the top hitting the water at the mid / bottom, it causes bubbles, just like when you pee in the toilet tongue.gif

so people say bubbles are not good for you as that makes noise and reduces cooling performance as the bubbles inside the loop takes space away from the water cooling surfaces.

but for that you can always use the EK insert, or the EK foam (included?) to prevent the bubbling. well technically those 2 are supposed to stop the Tornado inside the cylinder, which also causes bubbles, just like when you flush the toilet, and all that circling water goes down the drain chucking down water and air.

I figured I'd be all set since I can technically fill/bleed from the 2nd res. Thanks for the confirmation.

I had bought a pair of Ek Water Blocks EK-FC7970 - EN Nickel Plated Clear Full Cover for my Radeon HD 7970Ghz Edition GPU (CSQ Design) which has been flaking badly. I had it running for about a year with distilled water and Dazmode Protector.

https://www.dazmode.com/store/product/dazmode_protector/

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 85

Here's the photos which showing the flaking when dismantling for summer cleaning....











So Am I qualified for a RMA or it's a lost cause??

I have been buying EK products for long time and been a loyal customer, I even referred alot of friends to EK as well.

Hope it will get resolved.

Still waiting on the answer... I am well within 2 years warranty period. I hope you guys honor them.

Open a ticket on EK's website and you'll get your answer quicker. EK reps are very busy people they can't respond to every single post. Akira sometimes is quick but I know he's a mega busy fellow.

If you're within your warranty open a ticket, provide the evidence and hopefully your period will be over in the next few days when you get some fresh blocks.

I kinda doubt EK honors that warranty, if DazMode Protector is incompatible with Nickel for any reason. Hope I am wrong however. mellowsmiley.gif

Quite surprised at the lack of information on Daz's site.

Well iirc(been some time since I've gone there) DazMode doesn't carry EK product. So why would their Protector additive be compatible? Not saying that it isn't but I wouldn't expect it to be w/o first contacting EK and making absolutely sure to get something in writing before making that purchase. It's too late now, but hopefully the age of the block will be the deciding factor since it was released round the time of the Nickel issue. thinking.gif

Pretty sure the plating issue was before then but yeah, unless it has silver in it or something then thats why the plating failed but not sure as Daz's site literally lists nothing about what is in that bottle.
