You will have to list each block, components and dig what metal they're made of. Some may actually be a mix of two metals or more so you have to make sure everything is of the same type or close enough to be compatible with one another on the galvanic scale.

Here's a website with a scale:

I'll look up each component on their respective websites today.. I'm really hoping everything is one metal!!

Thanks!!

Those four components listed are all fine, don't worry.

The biggest offenders these days are radiators and reservoirs, which some companies make out of aluminum, which doesn't get along with Copper/Brass at all.

Hey Everyone!

It's all up and running now, however the tubing I got seems a bit thin, it kinks fairly easily... I'm going to buy some tubing with anti-kink coils from NCIX to fix this problem.. Thanks to everyone who helped me with this stuf!

I was wondering however where to buy either PT Nuke or equivalent (I think primochill has some). It seems to all be out of stock everywhere... Where do you guys get it??

Thanks Again!!

Try a Fish shop bro. Ask them for anti-algae water mix. My buddy has been buying it from the local place for years for his rigs. They stock the stuff in everything from 100ml to 4L sizes, for a quarter the cost of online Computer places. He has never had any issues.
