Just thinking a loud... (MB-ASP6T7WS, mixed brands)

Postby fzfq3m » Fri Apr 30, 2010 5:52 am

Hi I'm new to Koolance products... I own and ASUS P6t7 WS motherboard and I can´t be more pleased with koolance for developing the MB-ASP6T7WS Full coverage waterblock...

I already has a pump (MCP-655), Radiator (Black ICE X-Flow 120.3) and reservoir (from swif..) and now I just ordered my MB-ASP6T7W... I was thinking to order the Heat Killer 3.0 or the new Apogee XT CPU water blocks but then I wanted to stay on the safe zone and avoid mixing water blocks from different manufacturers, so I also ordered a CPU-360 rev1.1 waterblock: It looks nice, strong and as far this review: http://skinneelabs.com/koolance-cpu-360.html?page=1 it gets the job done pretty well (what more can I ask for :mrgreen: )

Then I realizaed that I would need to mix parts from others manufacturers :oops: at least until I save some cash to upgrade the pump, radiator and reservoir... so I identified a problem: What coolant should I use?? I mean: Koolance recommends to use only their own coolant and the pump manufacturer does same thing and AFAIK it can void warranty.

Answering myself it is clear that I will need to void the warranty of one manufacturer, so I'm voiding the pump warranty by two reasons: It's older than my two new waterblocks and I think is wise to void warranty of one component and not two of then... so I will use koolance's coolant...

I also realized that my MCP-655 and others manufacturers pumps like Danger Den DD12V-D5 are based (or same?) on Laing's pumps... may be the Laing D5-38 Vario & D5-38 Strong?? So there is a chance that my Swif...'s MCP-655 won't be damaged by using a different coolant ionstead of manufacturer's recommended...

Anyway I think it's wise to hear some advice while waiting to my new waterblocks to arrive so please fell free to comment on this...

As you surmised all of these pumps, including the Koolance 450 PMPs are Laing Pumps. Koolance brand coolant is a water-based solution. It does not contain alcohol, glycol, or oil. It is mostly water, UV reactive dies, and just a small amount of additional chemicals to address biological growth and corrosion. It should not damage your pump in any way. Be sure to flush it out with distilled water before adding your new coolant.

Koolance's 702/705 coolant does have Propylene Glycol in it. The older 600/700 coolant had Ethylene glycol which is very toxic.

I just got home from work and checked to be sure. Mugen beat me to it. It does have Propylene Glycol in it.

That still means koolance's coolant won't harm my pump, right???
Thanks for the advice about flushing the loop... I was also thinking to let the loop running with just distilled water for about one hour to, just to be sure that the old coolant is long gone...

Regards

Koolance coolant will not hurt your pump. You do not have to circulate an hour, just flush everything a few times until you feel like it is clean, even the parts you will not be reusing and are putting up for storage.
