im so tired of people always asking this like everything is caused from the less than 10% of us that accually had nickel flake occur..


no every problem is not caused by nickel in your loop. :shakes:

Thermodynamics. That the system can't go subambient.

That's my trouble with water cooling.

Radioactive potassium in the loop should fix that ;).

I mention it as a joke, but then again... it might keep the loop clean lol.
I probably got enough in me already, just need to spill some of meh blood into the loop and it's good to go for years on end, darned ER's always shooting me up with that stuff.

Jokes aside...
I've been wondering about using a pump that was previously used in aero for a cooling pump.
Say I buy 2 pumps, and I use them both for experiments, for pc and aero.
Now say I feel taking one of those pumps and re-using it for the pc, that would probably be a bad idea but I still think about it.
Er whatever, offtopic post is done...
