Cutting open an AIO with mixed metals

Has a automotive coolant additive (red line water wetter etc.) been tried mixed with distilled water as a coolant and would the chemical properties of the mix be anti corrosive to enable it's use on a mixed metal cooling system?

can't you just use something akin to automotive coolant ... GM dexcool or VW G12 coolant? Something silicate/ phosphate free meant to play well with different metal types?

Sorry to mention it Jay, as I love your video's but this video means NOTHING in real terms...you had a cooler that has been sitting on the shelf in a box for 4 years and HASN'T BEEN HEATED in those years...so technically there has been no difference to the heating of the metals....leave it in a system for that period and try again.

I bought that exact H100i a few years back, whenever it was their current model, and the pump failed after 2 months. Curiosity led me to open it up and it was full of white particulates. I don't think it was corrosion, but still disappointing. Maybe it was because it was cooling an angry OCed FX8350 and it hated life? idk lol

Great vid as always, Thanks Jay and Co. This mixed metal crap is just that crap. Does Galvanic Corrosion actually occur, um ya it's a known fact. Will it affect your Loop to the point of Catastrophic Failure, No it's highly highly unlikely. Want proof look at any Automobile, they use water cooling and holy hell they also use an insane amount of mixed metals in their loops. Failures in Auto cooling do of course occur but it's more than likely that failure is in the hoses, gaskets or the bearings of moving components like the water pump. Those failures are the result of usage/normal wear and tear and very rarely anything to do with corrosion. That is of course if you don't just fill the radiator with water and not a 50/50 water to anti-freeze mix. Anti-freeze is not only to prevent freezing it has additives that prevent growth as well as lubricate your autos cooling system/water loop components. That's why everyone who knows anything about PC Water Cooling always advises using something other than just Distilled Water in your Loops. TLDR: Ignore all this Galvanic Corrosion BS, your system components will become obsolete long before GC actually causes any failures. I'd also argue unless your using some pretty boutique fluid you shouldn't need to drain, clean and refill your loop unless you have an issue no matter how long it's in use. We all know at most if your like me and never upgrade until forced to, high end rigs of today should last at least 4 years and if you upgrade your GPU every 2 you'll actually be cleaning your loop and refilling more often than you need to in most cases. When you upgrade you clean your loop, clean and reuse what you can and refill with new solution designed for it or just mix your own. Honestly anyone telling you, you have to replace fluids every 6 months or once a year is simply selling more product for the sake of selling it. That is if you use good fluids or again mix your own...

What are your thoughts on the Phanteks GLACIER G1080 ASUS STRIX (gpu block), that has 5 metals in its construction alone. I understand the point illustrated in the video but is 5 pushing it? Also in your opinion would it be safe to use Phanteks GLACIER G1080 ASUS STRIX and a EK-FB ASUS ROG R6E RGB Monoblock in the same loop, with them being made by different manufactures?

I study physics and am by no means an expert in chemistry, but I shall share my hypothesis/intuition. The aluminum inside the radiator looks oxidized, which is likely the key here. First, both copper and aluminum oxide are insoluble in pure water, which prevents natural dissolution of the ions. Also, even though copper and copper ii oxide are both electrically conductive, aluminum oxide is not, and even in the presence of a weak electrolyte, high heat, and a high potential difference, aluminum oxide will resist attempts at galvanization. There is a bit of strangeness here though, as the fluid smells and has a green tint to it, which indicates to me that the fluid is not pure deionized water. In fact, assuming some ion concentration to distilled water, one would exspect to see a blue tinge, as with copper ii hydroxide. That pale green is usually a product of copper tetrachloride, but given the reactivity between chlorine ions with aluminum oxide, I would expect to see corrosion. My guess is the solution is slightly acidic, below a pH of 9 to prevent the aluminum oxide from dissolving, but acidic enough to prevent microbial growth; that slight acidity would be enough to saturate the solution with copper ii ions from the metal (which would be an extremely low saturation concentration) and that is where the green tinge and vinigarish smell came from. I suspect the correct compound would produce free oxygen ions to react with free hydrogen and maintain an equallibrium in the layer of aluminum oxide, solution volume, and copper concentration in the loop. This would make sense as well when you consider how copper would dissolve and precipitate back out of solution with changes in temperature, preferring to settle back into nanoscopic divots of the copper as the metallic bonds only work where electrons can flow through the copper atoms; surrounding a copper ion with copper ions is more electrically and energetically favorable than settling on the surface of the copper lattice. Either way, the primary mechanism preventing galvanic corrosion is the aluminum oxide, which was probably pre-oxidized before the solution was even added. This would insulate the anion grounding of the copper block and prevent a significant flow of electricity between the two plates and through the fluid, which is the primary mechanism of galvanic reactions.

That H100i looks too pristine. Must not have been used much, so there is no point in cutting it open at this early stage. The issue with AIOs is the constant circulation and eventual breakdown of the inhibitors in fluid, over a relatively short time (2+ years). Users of corsair AIOs (who have opened their pump units after a few years time) all have experience with 'green goop' clogging the copper plate. I'd be interested in seeing the inside of a rad AFTER the AIO has been in continual use.

Yeah as a pool guy i really don't understand that either, from my understanding algae would need light AND phosphates in pools/spas. Here is a link to people asking the same question, they say that metal ions, and maybe the manufacturer isnt making the loop in 100% sterile environments so their food has a chance of getting in. I still dont understand how the algae would grow in complete darkness, the algae im familiar with uses photosynthesis to grow, maybe light does get through the black tubing somehow? http://www.overclock.net/forum/61-water-cooling/1556846-may-seem-like-odd-question-but-how-does-algae-grow-water-loop.html

The metals also dont connect directly, in a AIO there a tube inbetween. Also a you can switch between copper and metal pipe in your plumming, by putting a special plastic and brass fitting in between. Would this be considered corrosion or Oxidation MSI try to do water cooling on there MSI Z170 Gaming M9 Ack. Making a copper pipe trough the VRM cooling the rest of the block was aluminium and the pipe had aluminium fittings nickel plated, ones the nickel damaged and it did almost strait away on all of the ones i had.I now had copper directly in contact with aluminium and brass EKWB fittings, I was using a Premix EKWB fluid but still the nickel plating on my EK CPU block and my MSI gtx seahawk started eating away and green copper oxidation was starting all over my loop, it happened so fast within 3 months that i did not see it untill my gpu acrylic burst because the radiator got jammed up with all the pieces nickel. I always see yellowisch fluid in AIO btw, PS i still have the first version (2010/2011) of the Corsair H100 in my server and have not had a singel issue with it, temps are still the same as when i bought it. Were as i did see a increase in temps like 5-10 degree when my other system started to eat away.

Mixing metals? For galvanic corrosion to occur in an AIO like the one you cut up, the radiator and heat sink would have to be electrically connected, or one metal in direct contact with the other. Not to mention that the fluid would need to be an electrolyte.

Lol corrosion is oxidation. Yes metals can cause oxidation by putting different metals together, as well as putting the same metals . Corrosion needs oxygen in any case. The fluid used is an emulator, which is an oil mixed with water. The use of distilled water removes other minerals which may contain traces of oxygen molecules in them. Galvanizing itself is a form of creating an oxide layer to protect the metal itself.
