I'm going to say it again. Your experiment here is a prime candidate for Mayhem's biocide and inhibitor drops. They'll keep your mixed metal system for corroding.
I will def utilize this info when I get to that point.


Thank you for all your answers I need some sleep!

dream about automotive coolant.

i've read some folks swear by the red stuff in nissans.

ot:
what ever happened to that nut job toolmaker?

his posts were entertaining to say the least.

Ok, you're looking at the chart wrong because of what is stated below. It clearly shows the copper with a red block (corrodes) when combined with aluminum. Look at the aluminum line and follow it to the copper column.

Yes, you can most definitely make your own coolant @ home but I'd never recommend this to a first timer. There are so many things that can go wrong already, improperly mixing home brew coolant doesn't need to be one of them. Specially with how effective and cheap Mayhem's biocide+ & inhibitor+ are. You can likely make 100 gallons of coolant from those two $20 droppers.

folks will typically use a little bit of borax, and water wetter.

toolmaker?! how'd i miss this.

hey! borax?!?! wow, i got some laundry soap . . .
nah, i wasn't meaning to play home chemist, i remember jpmboi stating he uses automotive coolant and distilled 10%/90% w/o issues for quite some time. thought about it myself but the red (really pinkish) doesn't really suit my taste.

i'm a orange or blue guy for colors.

Yeah, dude's been doing that for years with great results. He's the dude who also recommends a tiny bit of powder soap for stabilizer.

Myself, I prefer the rich deep color of blood, and the shine of gold.

Just an update, I got 1/2'' OD 3/8'' ID Tubing. 1/4'' thread to 3/8'' barb fitting. The ID of the in the fitting is at max. Really helped the GPM. And the new pump pulling seems to help it out too. Then I made a cardboard box hybrid with my blower. Max temps with my highest overclocks on FireStrike GPU 47C TJ 79 Memory 70. GScore27093 Ttotal 21096 Core 2040 ram 960 Maxpw 55%. Put the cardboad together real fast, will improve it later, tapes not on anything hot.



My block has been filtering out the water ^^. Cleaned out a bunch of dirt. I really need to seal the tote, but I don't have a rubber ducky yet so... I'm actually going to test it sealed. If the temps ever rises, which it pretty much shouldn't. If so I'll put some mesh on top to collect dust and allow venting.


I might throw in some radiator coolant, 10\90 aint bad. I won't get completely serious on biocides\corrosion until I go and get 40 gallons of distilled, or move on beyond the 40 gallon tote. Pain in the you know what hauling em upstairs.


Oh yeah I added some thermal glue\ thermal pads(therm glue both sides\old heatsink fins but it was super weak. They were way to loose. Didn't make it into the testing phase. Next time I'll skip the thermal pads on the memory and just use the glue. It's really ugly but I'll post my rushed attempt below. I actually spent time cutting and pulling these little fins off the original heat sink, re flattening the bottoms...


It was learning experience. I plan to use some real heatsinks with maybe the original fins to help direct air traffic.


EDIT my block is not that green, it's just a weird pic, it's not green at all.
