What kind of filter do you have? 

 

I wouldn't recommend having it attached to the fish tank too though as the cpu/GPU blocks would get dirty really fast.

This was done in the very early days iirc.  I vaguely recall there being issues but I don’t remember what they were.  It’s not an any filter thing, and there are other problems.  I don’t recall what they were though.

It's a spare and it isn't being used

What stats do you have for it?

I use a car radiator. I was able to snag a new one for less than a 240mm rad. I use the royal purple coolant additive to obtain the biocide so I can avoid using an of the shelf glycol mix. 

 

Having said that, an AIO will be much less trouble in the long run. The huge rad I have eliminates the need to force air through it, so it's quiet, and this custom setup allowed me to use 3 waterblocks to cool my graphics card because a factory block wasn't available, but I'm not sure if I'd mess with this again. It's cheaper but high maintenance. 

 

Anyway, consider the royal purple to keep the water under control.
