Quick coil ?

Gods County(Allegedly)
Have just completed the build of my first cpu & gpu loop. Am giving it a 6/8hrs leak run at the moment so fingers crossed :)

When I bought the ingredients I assumed that I would need :-

Distilled water
Colour of choice
and a Silver coil

I bought :

Mayhems Ultra Pure H20
Mayhems X1 - UV Blue Concentrate
Mayhems Silver coil

Mixed and filled (very pretty blue :D)

Was intending to add the coil but was not sure if I need it (given the Mayhems fluids) or if appropriate ....

I have a Xspc Raystowm cpu block (metal - copper) and an Aqua Computer Gpu block (metals - copper with a stainless steel top.)

Question - should I use the Silver coil and /or should I add some biocide?

Thoughts appreciated :)

I'd add some biocide.

From what I've read from another poster here the silver coils work by corroding into the water preventing bacterial growth. Now the uv blue has anti-corrosion built into it, so the silver coil probably wont be as effective as biocide.

Edit: Just read x1 has biocide in it. No need to add either.

2nd edit: been beaten to it by andybird123. Sorry.

Probably cost to post it what it cost to buy :p

Ah well - will probably hang it from the base of my monitor although better half did think that it might make a nice ring (just a bit worried as to the precedent being set :eek:)

Aww go on - you know you want to :D
