    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.

    CES was allegedly the vector to spread around the US. It may have been floating around vegas, but con flu was covid early this year.

    It's been years, I feel so out of the loop!

    Been struggling with temps on a W3680 (don't judge, 6 Cores at 4.x GHz only just became mainstream, welcome to 2010, you're going to love it) since adding a GPU block and extra radiator. Probably going to go dual loop.
