aside from that - as far as additives go. X1 or Biocide+ inhibitor+ are phenomenal products. I used x1 in a soft tube sytsem i didn't properly clean, and ignored it for 5 years. Only took 5 minutes to clean the blocks back to new (minus some copper patina)

for sure, mick assumes his users do their due dilligence, and they don't. the amazon reviews are pretty funny. too bad they didn't stumble on this little thread first. I wonder if we show up on the 1st page when googling mayhems? I can't really test it, my results would be tainted.

imagine running that body dissolving grade acid straight, then filling w. coolant, turning on your dual pump at full blast... your radiators would turn into sprinklers.

as stated, step 1 is overkill for most folks, unless they're trying to build a top tier beast with funky coolant, and then continue to run said funky coolant as a daily driver.

you can easily recreate this at home with less caustic stuff, and a simple baking soda wash.

orrrr, just do it the old school way (lots of hot water), and use normal coolant = 99% of problems solved.
X1 is brilliant. A must have. A wonder product. Works brilliantly at an affordable price and can last a long while over its service lift of 9-12 months. Not recommended of course.

Mercury cooling? Now THAT is metal AF!

That's a tricky feat. 1L of Mercury weighs 13.53 kg, so you will need a very strong pump. Also, mercury amalgamates with most other metals, however you could platinum-coat your waterblocks (instead of nickel-coating them). Not sure what you could do about the radiators, I guess you could make them of iron, which doesn't form an amalgam with mercury. Don't use steel, though, because mercury corrodes it.
Due to its extreme weight per volume, you would need thick glass tubing, although I suspect 16/10 tubing would suffice.

Looking at the above, I guess it's not worth it

yeah it would be quite the cluster lol

i mean, even CLU eats away at your blocks and that has minute mercury & galium.

Truth be told, it had been one of my "what if...?" things related to watercooling, until I researched it and realized it's next to impossible. It would definitely not help GPU waterblocks but would very likely drop CPU temperatures because it would soak away heat much more rapidly.
