    @N00berG00ber you don't have to worry about the idle Voltage, it is normal.

    Here is a screenshot of my 8700K idling without any issues @0.256V

    ohh ok, sweet, thought it shifts the voltage table down, so i thought it would have instability at freqs less than turbo speed.

    Hi,
    The koolance is good for aluminum.... so that would be my choice you'd have to order any type of coolant

    There is some water wetter stuff too at autozone supposed to be good cheap
    Here's the exact quote from a pretty good source of what they use

    I use Koolance 702 Liquid Coolant, High-Performance, UV Blue for my chiller warranty. I believe JP uses distilled water and Red Line WaterWetter. I use that stuff in my car and it's great!

    Hi,
    Yeah fluid or premixed is usually expensive to ship anywhere really
    Auto parts stores are usually all over the place though

    I've read also people using anti freeze too but soft tubing wise that can be unforgiving if it melts the tubing
    The water wetter is only a few cap fulls per quart or gallon jp= Jpmboy didn't respond back with a mixture he uses.

    So I took the entire loop apart, took the CPU and GPU and pump apart. The CPU block was a little gunked up. Cleaned that out, and tested flow rate. Seems to be ok. I flushed the system when I had it apart with regular water, put it all back together, flushed it with distilled water, then filled. No leaks. Did not put anything in the water. Just pure distilled water. Temps seemed to have dropped a bit. I have to see what's up in my bios, but running 5 mins of realbench stress got a Max of 72c on 2 cores. Before, all cores we're hitting 75-80c. Next time I take this loop apart, probably to put a 90° angle fitting in it, I'll lap the block. Temps are also about 5°F warmer in my room now too.

    I only use distilled water. Nothing with any additives. You can put a silver coil in your rezzy if you have any concerns.

    Yeah idk, maybe I did. But it's clean now. Water is clear and I don't see anything floating around.

    What does a silver coil do?

    Hi,
    EK didn't send a silver coil with the all aluminum water kit ?
    Maybe it's not recommended to use one ?
