Hi. I’m having a very diverse liquid-cooled case mod project. The system will be running with some copper and aluminum parts in a single loop that I can’t and will not avoid. Here are the cooling parts:
1X 240MM rad.
2X 120MM rads.
4X aluminum tunnel OCZ Flex RAM.
So here my questions:
What is the chance for corrosion to occur when running under Anti-corrosion coolant, a piece of sliver coil, changing coolant every three months? I’m talking about long term for at least 5 years and 2hrs of usage every day.
If the corrosion is unavoidable what else I could do to slow down or stop the corrosion process?
Where the corrosion will takes place first? On aluminum or copper or both?
How can I tell if there is corrosion inside of the radiators? What are the effective ways to clean them?
These might be hard to answer but I want to hear your real experience and thoughts. Some of the parts in my project are really hard to find/replace if something went wrong. Thanks!
