All CPU blocks will perform within 2-3 degrees of each other.

Just pick whichever you think looks best or looks best for your build.

As long as the materials don't mess with your rads and such, you should be good.

Can nickel be mixed with copper rads?

IDK. I think it can. I'm pretty sure it's aluminum that causes all the problems.

@W-L Do you have that graph of the various metals and which ones are safe to use together?

 

@ProRules It might not matter as much as you think if you use a proper anti-corrosion additive in your fluid and perform regular maintenance on your loop.

Nickel plating and copper goes together. But always use anti corrosives for good measure

Is the silver coil that goes into the reservoir enough?

theres also those "Dead water" drops.

Yes, the metals nickel, brass and copper can be added within the same loop without any problems, just remember that if you are using nickel that no silver kill coils are used since they can potentially cause corrosion since they are boderline dis-similar metals.

Just remember to check fittings also as most are nickel plated or going to be powder coated black which will not be a problem.
