I'm looking at Petra's Tech Shop and trying to figure out which is the nuke I'm supposed to be grabbing.

Cu Concentrated

PHN Concentrated

My loop consists of

Heatkiller LT
EK 5850 Nickel/Acetal Full block with Black backplate
FrozenQ Reservoir
MCP655 Vario pump
MCR320 Radiator

Thanks in advance guys!

Amazing during your time here on earth, but your calling in heaven must be extraordinary.

PHN if you're running distilled (which you should be), otherwise Cu Concentrated.

PHN if you are running straight distilled water in your loop.
Cu if you are running your loop with some sort of dye.

PHN it is, distilled water for the win.

This distilled water, I can just pick this up at the grocery store or pharmacy? Nothing fancy about it right? This is my first loop and the parts are on the way, so wanna have my ducks in a row so I can do this right the first time

And this is terrible. $2.99 for the item, $9 for shipping? come on Petras.

Why are you hating on Petra's for the price of shipping? If you're going to hate on anybody, hate on UPS. Petra's is a small business, not a multibillion dollar corporation like Newegg. Not everybody is pulling in enough revenue to bite the bullet on shipping on every item.

Loop: Black Ice Xtreme II 240 w/ Yate Loon D12SM-12's, DangerDen MC-TDX block, D5 12v pump, Swiftech MicroRes v2, 1/2"ID Primoflex Black

Things I Desperately Need: HD5850 waterblock, fileserver for all my hard drives

Currently Playing: TF2, TF2, TF2, and TF2

Yeah man, you can just pick up a gallon of distilled from the grocery store for like $2 or $3 a gallon...there's nothing fancy about distilled water.

So you can use the Cu one in plain distilled water too?

What is the difference (besides being more tolerant to dyes)?

>>> THIS i am curious to know as well .


...the only thing i know of the two is, as it is stated with
the Nuke -PHN :

"...we do
not recommend the use of Nuke -PHN with most "pre-mixed
PC coolants" and dyes (though, our testing indicates that there may
be no compatibility issue with Feser's UV dyes). Do not mix Nuke -PHN
with the original Copper sulfate based Nuke -Cu. "
