Hello this is my first post on overclock.net and i need some advice please. I got a amazing deal on a auros xtreme waterblocked 1080ti because the block itself has some water damage. Seems as the guy only used distilled water and all copper radiators or so he says. Either way it is mine now and it looks like it should function properly although there is visible corrosion in many areas. My question is what is my next step? Should i 1.install it and see how it holds up with the entire loop? Or does that risk contaminating the rest of the loops parts? 2. Get another pump and create It's own loop so that it is self contained to keep it seperated from the rest of the loop? So anything that happens stays in the smaller experimantal secondary gpu loop. 3. Buy a new block for it? But which one? Availability is almost impossible to obtain one from what i have been searching online? This really has me in a tough situation and i would greatly appreciate some advice please!

Hi,
Two loops is usually the way to go unless there is limited space.
I'd still dismantle and clean it up
Heck take some images and post after opening it up and cleaning.

Some pics of the corrosion would be useful. I would want to dissemble the block and make sure to clean out anything that might come loose. YouTube has plenty of videos on cleaning these blocks.

Ok here are the pics of the block AFTER i cleaned it with hot soapy water and a toothbrush then a quick baking soda and vinegar bath I also carefully took off the auros aluminum stickers without damaging them [tricky with a hair dryer and guitar string]

@bfromcolo

Also i have ordered this pump, and thinking about getting a 2nd one to create seperate loops? I have a 360 copper alphacool rad i want to use for one loop with ekwb supermacy rgb copper nickel cpu block, and have another 120 alphacool copper rad i want to use on the second experimental smaller loop. My case is a corsair 780t so it has room for 360 on top and 120 on rear so that is why i chose those two sizes. I didn't want to mount another 360 on the front cause then i would be pushing hot air in, or another 240 on the floor cause again pushing in hot air plus save space for the reservoir pump combo etc. Still i need alot of help and advice please. This is my first custom liquid cooling project and going in with 2 res/pump combos is kinda tricky. Am i doing the right thing? What would you best advise me to do?

Hi,
Yeah dude probably used a silver kill coil
Not supposed to do that with nickle plating.
Keep it separate for sure.

Out of curiosity is that block still OK to use? Or is there danger of that crud or nickel platting coming off and circulating in the loop only to cause a problem somewhere else? Will using an anti-corrosive stop that in its tracks?


I got to stop coming into the water cooling section, having bad dreams about whats growing in my computer.

Hi,
Only good thing is there is copper under the nickle

Yeah it might very well be a good idea to add a simple inline filter
Koolance and others make G1/4" filters I have one on each system.

Funny thing is i had ordered a silver coil then i cancelled the order. Good thing i did that. The dude i bought the card from said he used only distilled water no additives and all copper radiators. I am kinda baffled at how the corrosion happened so much so fast. If you look at the 6 thumbnails i posted you can see how much damage was done in less then 1 year!

Very good question i would like to know this aswell. I wonder if i use some mayhems or koolance coolant or primochill even will the corrosion STOP or will the nickel continue to corrode? It is funny when you realize how sensitive metals are lol.

Hi,
Depending on how well the nickle plating process is the damage may take longer
Some say they used silver coil 4-5-6 years with less damage than that or none at all sort of hard to believe some people though

Filters are cheap regular maintenance drain about every 6 months to 1 year or if temps are unusually high will help a lot filter will confirm if anything is flaking off.

Hi,
Yeah mayhems x1 clear concentrate can be used too.

Omg sorry for the triple post up there seems u can't erase accidental posts lol anyhow never thought about a filter. Where do you put it? And do you need to drain all that expensive coolant to clear out the filter?

What about the mayhems UV red? Is it just as good? Or the koolance uv red? I wanna try a uv red, if not i was thinking primochills sysprep and utopia cause it comes with the tubing for free.
