I might be mistaken, but I was under impression SR1 is same thickness as MCR, while GTX is double thinkess of MCR. By bad then...

You have to balance parts so one part won't damage other parts performance
Damage occurs when you have aluminum with copper in the same loop.Other wise i don't think you can damage a part. One more think : A lot of people forget about price-performance ratio.

Its all good Daz, was just stating my opinion/ knowladge. Oh, also the SR1 is HWLabs flagship radiator right now - they claim it "Yields up to 30% more heat exchange capacity than the Black IceŽ GTX".

Ok,
I wanted to report back about this rad. I was scared last night so I spend most of my evening shaking the crap out of my radiator. I first flushed it with straight boiled distilled water which came out perfectly clear. On the advice on some forum posting flushed the rad 3x with a 30% Isoproply alcohol and 70% boiling distilled water mixture came out a little cloudy the first time but clear the next few times. I then flushed it about 4 more times with boiling distilled water and there was no white flux anywhere. Unless I am doing something wrong the rad seemed to come very clean. I know Thermochill is under new management so maybe they have improved their quality control? This rad was straight from Thermochill as it was a new shipment to Direct Canada.
