Far as I knew it was now all Mayhems. there really is no reason to run AntiFreeze though. If they are using it, it's a lazy way of introducing anti corrosives into a custom loop. 1 drop is all that's necessary to keep the system free of corrosion. For those that want a Biocide? Well one drop of that is all that's necessary too. Buying a bottle of each at the same time costs the same as a bottle of AntiFreeze, but over the life of those bottles how many times will they be used before you need to buy more.

So if EK is only using Mayhems for Pastel, I am wrong and will cop to that. Even so, we all know it's a lazy and antiquated practice and more to the point encourages people to dispose of it incorrectly. I cannot believe people actually dump it down the drain. Did you know that the US Government reserves the right to FINE you for improper disposal of Ethylene Glycol products? There is no filtration system that is 100% at this time. Don't believe me? Ask Baton Roouge residents if their filtration ponds weren't flooded. Why even take the chance? That's just naive thinking. mellowsmiley.gif

To facilitate recycling, do not mix used antifreeze with solid or hazardous waste. Mixing used antifreeze with other substances such as oil or solvent may prevent its ability to be recycled and may cause it to become hazardous waste.

Quote:
 If the antifreeze is a hazardous waste, it may be expensive to dispose of.
 You must have permission from the wastewater treatment plant before discharging used antifreeze to the sanitary sewer. If the used antifreeze is a hazardous waste, you may be subject to the wastewater discharge reporting requirements in ch. NR 211.
 Dumping used antifreeze into a storm sewer or on the ground is illegal and may be harmful to lakes and streams, people, pets and wildlife.
 Discharging used antifreeze into a septic tank and soil absorption field is illegal. It may cause the septic system to fail and result in groundwater pollution.
 Recycling used antifreeze can reduce environmental liability associated with disposal.

CN: If it's not mixed with other things, and you have permission from the local wastewater treatment plant, you can dump it down the toilet. thumb.gif

Propylene glycol, which is used in all PC coolants, that I looked at, that don't use Ethylene glycol, is still considered antifreeze. You can still go to walmart and buy a bottle of it premixed with anti corrosion/etc additives for a few dollors.

I´m trying to setup a natural tornado in a 250mm EK res, and I need to figure out which side the water should come in from to avoid disrupting the natural flow of the water draining

If i drop the water from the top center it will cause too much tempest and disrupt the event horizon, If i input water from the wrong side it will cause an artificial spin to the opposite to the natural flow.
I got my two res to flow opposite ways by using different ports on my res's while running dual loops and Aurora. I didn't notice any disruptions or anything.

Btw since I have a toilet and live in North America... counter-clockwise is the way she flows.

An unusual amount of toilet talk here recently... (don't break the planet please! But let's keep the thread intact too)

Aren't your blocks looking a bit funky? See if EK will replace them under warranty, don't forget to mention you've used 25% antifreeze in your loop yet there is corrosion still happening despite all the stuff in it for corrosion.

I'll be sure to mention that, along with the promochill LRT blodred hose that another user is having issues with as well.

GPU block is screwy, both of my CPU blocks were fine.

Let us know how you get on, I'll be interested in what EK makes of it.

Guys your are always going to have a certain amount of nickle plated blocks fail as it is plating and not solid! It will be small amount but still they will
