Maybe he had some alu parts in his loop? That's looks pretty bad.

Bad enough not to use? How many of you would still use this block? I attached a picticure again after cleaning pic was taken ***. I don't think there is even any gigabyte auros xtreme waterblocks n e more even if i wanted to replace it. So i mandatory NEED to just run 2 loops and see how it holds up over time? Boi this watercooling is tricky lol

Disclaimer, this is not something I have experienced, so take all this with a grain of salt.

I would probably use it and not do a second loop if I didn't need it for cooling capacity due to added cost, you might as well buy a new block at that point. And I would definitely use an anti-corrosive.

An inline filter sounds like cheap insurance and will give you a place to monitor for issues.

Looking on ebay I wonder about something like this:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Acrylic-PC-...9401:rk:1:pf:0

Clear fluid and a clear filter and you could see if it was collecting debris without draining the system. I have never used a filter, but since you are worried about the GPU block introducing debris I would install it where the fluid exits that, I assume they would normally be on the pump intake.

Hi,
Colored fluid stains a lot
Clear is better get colored hoses if you want color.

Seeing the block I'd put the filter on it's outlet seems the best placement.
Separate loops would contain what ever happens to the block and it's easier to deal with instead of draining the entire system just for issues or maybe issues with the gpu block.

Concentrate or premixed fluid both would have all the stuff that stops growth....

@bfromcolo what do you mean need it for cooling capacity? I have already ordered 2 xspc x4 pump reservoir combos that i am going to mount side by side for dual loop a 360 alphacool for the cpu and a 120 alphacool for the gpu both copper. I am all out of funds but as soon as i get some i wouldn't mind getting the xspc filter good idea and mount it after the gpu exit.

@ThrashZone I have ordered the primochill soft tubing that comes with "sysprep" & "liquid utopia" which is a concentrate that you mix with distilled water for 1 liter total coolant, have you tried this one? Or anyone else tried liquid utopia with good results? Also thanks for the dual loop advise as i was thinking along those lines, gonna need to drain the gpu loop early to check the fluid for particles cause the xspc filter i want i don't think you can see without taking it out first? And to drain the water into a container to look for contents in the liquid. Also yes the Utopia coolant is clear so is the tubing. I got red tubing but i hated it lol so i returned it and am waiting for the "crystal clear" tubing from primichill lol

Also everyone agrees with me using the 360 for the 5930k and the 120 for the 1080ti right? I mean i only want exhaust rads and those are the only spaces/sizes for exhaust radiators on the 780t, i don"t want the 360 or 240 intake rad setup that the 780t can do cause the hot air entering i can't live with that lol i would rather use those slots for positive pressure intake fans a dedicate a exhaust 360 to the cpu and exhaust 120 for the gpu as the 120 is a thicker rad than the larger but thin 360 so it is smaller but thicker that was my plan i think it is the preferred setup right?

Hi,
There are a few 120mm rads 30mm-45mm-60mm
Not ideal but if it meets your needs would be as good or better than a gpu aio/ hybrid which also use a thinner rad than I listed.

Personally i wouldn't worry about the heat from the rads both mine are intake top and front all air is forced out the back...
I can see how the front and room for the reservoir might be valid though.

Well the reason I worry about intaking in hot air from the rads is because of the m.2 950 pro that sits in the middle of the board, I don't have a heatsink for it yet ( I know they are only like 15 bucks) but if it get hot it can throttle down. I suppose it is not that big of a deal but when I am editing the usage goes up for long periods of time or gaming so that is a constant flow of hot air being pushed into the case. Hmmm..

If possible, you want your rads getting fresh cool air for best cpu/GPU temperatures. I have heat probes measuring intake and exhaust temperature on my rads and it normally is only 3-4 degrees delta t on the exhaust side.
