    Coolant

    Hey guys, after some searching and not quite finding an answer to my question I figured I'd make a new thread. I'm am wondering what the majority rules on PT Nuke vs. silver coils. I will be running an XSPC RX360 rad, Danger Den cpu and gpu blocks. I want to use distilled but havnt made up my mind yet on as to use nuke or silver coils. What do you guys think? Thanks!

    Either is recommended as no one here recommends dyes or pre-mix coolants. You'll be happy with either.

    Personally, I would go with nuke just so I don't have something floating around in my res and it's instant protection - no need to wait to build up silver concentration in the water.

    Yeah, I've seen the terror that dyes wreak. Def not going there. I've been leaning more toward Nuke too being a bit worried about something floating around in my res.

    Should you ever decide to have multiple loops or multiple water cooled computers, that one bottle of PT Nuke will suffice for them all.

    Anything but distilled is pure bling, unless you for some reason use Flourinert.

    I'd pick Silver > Nuke as its permanent, and you don't need to add more every so often/when changing water out

    Whose to say the silver has to be in youre res? Coil it up and stick it in a tube

    If I use primochill tubing which claims to have biocide already in it, is that enough with pure distilled?

    Nope, I didnt even know PrimoChill has biocide in it, if it does it must be weak as

    As h20xide said, what makes you think you have to put it your res? Ianh's kill coils are coils for a reason.
