    Been gone a while, anyone still around?

    Wow, this place is quiet! Well, I am headed back onto the breach! Wanna build a ryzen 7 system. What company is big these days? I used to use all Swiftech.

    What kind of coolant and additives would you recommend for the longest 27/7/365 operation before having to drain and clean a custom loop? And how long would that be before doing it?

    distilled water and copper sulfate is still the way to go. Loops should be drained, cleaned, and refilled every 2-3 years.
