Cyber Locc Ahh my friend toolmaker, its been a long time . Its been too long .

Not really upset was a figuring of speech, you know sarcasm and joking do not translate well on the net, so understandable. I did spend a lot of time arguing that very point, with users and Manufactures however . However I hold Zero grudges with anyone, here or anywhere .

I'm not upset people have found more evidence and learning about it, at all. I am very happy, and sorry for those that had to learn the hard way to make this info apparent .


On another note, how did your parallel loop go? Do you have an updated thread for me to check out?

Everybody should stop using kills coils and use a fluid with biocide and corrorion inhibitor included. Something like Mayhems Biocide+ mixed with Inhibitor+ is perfect.

maybe you mean if you use liquids other than water, they are bad? I would have to agree with that
Nope, with just water, 4 Monsoon fittings did that to my copper raystorm in a couple of months. the issue is not Copper + Silver, its Copper + Silver + Nickel.

Even then, like Ryan said, its going to happen with copper period. However Copper+Silver+Nickel speeds up the process.

I wish we could go back & clean up all the bad info in these easy to find first time watercooler guides that're a decade old at this point.

time to shill for mayhems.

no silver, just biocide+and inhibitor+ and you'll have the cleanest system you've ever experienced.

Honestly the layer of oxidation will have a negligible effect on performance while the same cannot be said about some inhibitors so just run with it.

The people who panic over this sort of thing would drop dead if I showed the inside of my old d-tek fuzion gpu. That thing is almost vanta black inside after being in use for 10+ years and its never seen a kill coil.



There is nothing to clean up. They do their job simply and well.

Cool. That's what my limited research was yielding as well. Since there are no chunks and its all superficial surface corrosion I'm not going to worry about. I used to fold on my GPU as well. It went for about 2 years straight so the "extreme" oxidation from extra heat and 3 years of neglect would make sense.

also, if i remember correctly. They can help accelerate your water's ph, specially when using nickel... It's been a few years, I'll see if I can find the data.

They're worse than worthless, as by doing nothing (at best) they're destructive.
I personally have never had a bio-mess, though I have never tried using anything other than silver and DI H2O. I have had bits of detritus and lint from poor loop cleaning/flushing and some surface oxidation apparently. Also couldn't say I ever tested the pH levels.

I have avoided nickle plated blocks because of the nasty flaking issues a few years back. I saw zero need to add extra bling and risk to my loops since I'm water cool for the performance/reduced fan noise.

If you find any of that data that would be awesome to share.

Glad to see there are others that have the same experience with raw copper as I do. I hadn't noticed any appreciable change in the performance of the loop though I never kept records of what it was like new so I can't say if i had or not.


Given the general consensus is that it's likely not the Norprene but rather the use of silver vs regular oxidation I will make a note in the original post.

A bit off topic, but where did you get your distilled water from? I've gotten mine from Shoppers and it turned two different batches of my Primochill clear PRT adv tubing a hazy white within less than a week. Ended up buying Cryofuel and some more tubing, with EK ZMT tubing just in-case, because of it.
