nope, it takes about 30 hard 90 fittings to raise the cpu temp 1deg.

you should probably start your own thread asking for advice on ur build..

the more silver joints you use- the lower the heat of the water anyway- Silver is a great heat conductor - :P so that flow restriction probably is made up in heat loss rofl (im taking the piss.. i know silver coating wont do much with heat transfer)

... but on a similar note my 'research' has found that silver isn't that beneficial and seems to aid in corrosion and clouding of tubes..

i saw a thread where a guy kept adding tones of silver to his loop thinking the clouding was bacterial growth- And it kept coming back cloudy more aggressive.

what he failed to realise the parts where he put the silver were the most cloudy...

im doing more research before i finally build my loop in the coming weeks

i wish there were nickel plated joints instead of true silver ones... i guess ill probably be going for black joints :<

Ummm what.
Most fittings are nickel plated, I don't think anyone in Aus sells the true silver fittings any more...

oh sweet, thanks, i had no idea they changed. I bought the older .999 true silver fittings hoping id not need antimicrobial additives, totally keen on swapping to nickel coatings

anyone have issues with the new nickel plated EK blocks. if so i'm thinking of going straight copper- unless anyone other than EK does plexi covers

just curious with an XSPC Raystorm CPU block, can I mount the inlet/outlet North & South instead of East West?

as it would help remove slight kink in tubing or is this acceptable

Mount it however you like, it won't change a thing.

Gentlemen, I have seen a few references in this thread and other along the lines of 'don't f'ing use nickel'.

I was looking at EK Full Cover VGA Block EK-FC560 GTX V2 Acetal+EN Nickel on pccasegear but all the don't f'ing use nickel comments stopped me.

I'm going to we my gtx560ti just to make the damn thing stfu so I am not worried about how pretty the loop looks.

So, is there something bad about nickel parts?

Nickel plating can flake off causing blockages and corrosion in your loop.



EK blamed end users for their manufacturing defects which left a bad taste in a lot of mouths.

the likelihood is the block will be fine but there will not be any love here for them.
