    does chrome+brass+copper+nickle=corrosion???

    hey guys i currently have a water cooling loop that contains nickle, copper, and brass with no problems what so ever and i am now thinking of purchasing a swiftech chrome plated 5970 full waterblock.

    What i need to know is will this cause corrosion in my loop as i have a lot of different metals in my loop already?

    thanks in advance

    it's aluminium that placed in loop alongside with above listed metals will cause problems.

    if the dissimilar metals are touching it can corrode.

    Kanabonoid: not exactly just then. electrolytic metal pairs may start working & corrode if coolant is conductive aswell.
