I'm looking at Petra's Tech Shop and trying to figure out which is the nuke I'm supposed to be grabbing.<br />
<br />
<a href="http://www.petrastechshop.com/pepcobi1.html" target="_blank">Cu Concentrated</a><br />
<br />
<a href="http://www.petrastechshop.com/peptpcobi1.html" target="_blank">PHN Concentrated</a><br />
<br />
My loop consists of <br />
<br />
Heatkiller LT<br />
EK 5850 Nickel/Acetal Full block with Black backplate<br />
FrozenQ Reservoir<br />
MCP655 Vario pump<br />
MCR320 Radiator<br />

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

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

PHN it is, distilled water for the win.<br />
<br />
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 <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
And this is terrible. $2.99 for the item, $9 for shipping? come on Petras.

</div>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.

So you can use the Cu one in plain distilled water too?<br><br>
What is the difference (besides being more tolerant to dyes)?

<font size="3">>>> THIS i am curious to know as well .<br />
<br />
<br />
...the only thing i know of the two is, as it is stated with <br />
the Nuke -PHN :<br />
<br />
"...we do </font><font size="3"><font color="Red"><b>not</b></font></font><font size="3"> recommend the use of Nuke -PHN with most "pre-mixed <br />
PC coolants" and dyes (though, our testing indicates that there may <br />
be no compatibility issue with Feser's UV dyes). <i> <u>Do <font color="Red"><b>not</b></font> mix</u></i> Nuke -PHN <br />
with the original Copper sulfate based Nuke -Cu. "<br />
