Hey guys, I know this topic has been done to death, but I cannot find any concrete information that relate to my situation. I currently have the following in my loop:
1x xpc 120mm pump/res
2x gtx 780ti hydro copper
1x250mm rad (copper)
1x 50mm rad (copper)
1x CPU block (copper)
1xsilver killcoil
using ek coolant with UV die

I stupidly just ordered two new rads without checking the material....its aluminium... would I have a problem with corrosion of the aluminium rads or any other part of the system?
I am hoping the use of the killcoil and proper coolant will help.

TBH I'm not really concerned about the possible eventual damage to the two aluminum radiators, I am more concerned if the rads will corrode my Gpu/CPU blocks..

Any help and advice is appreciated.

I don't know myself, however everything I've read has said that mixing aluminum and copper in your loop will be bad.

A killcoil helps only with organic stuff, wont stop galvanic corrosion. I use mixed metals as well, an am running a 85% distilled water and 15% anti-freeze mixture without issues for about a year now. No sign of corrosion anywhere.

First things first, which radiators are they?

Second, the killcoil won't prevent corrosion at all, if anything it will make it worse, I suggest you take it out and use biocide or pre-mixed coolant with biocide and anti-corrosives instead.
