Problem with copper and thermaltake radiator

Go to solution Solved by ApolloX75,

I wouldn't use it unless you have a good coolant with corrosion inhibitors, and even then I doubt it would perform as well as a Swiftech or Alphacool rad.

That Radiator is "zinc alloy aluminum"

I have no experience in custom loop watercooling, but I was under the assumption that you shouldn't mix metals, so I would say that this would give you corrosion problems. But as I said, not an expert so I would see what other people say.

I read the same thing. That's why I'm asking. I think it would not
