None, whatsoever. There is also no difference between Acetal and Nickel version either.

I ended up getting the EH Supreme HF full nickle since I don't want to worry about cracks. Someone also mentioned to me that the Acetal is not good because of how it reacts to other metals and certain WC fluid. Not sure if it's true or not.

I haven't heard of acetal reacting with anything before. Plexi, yes, but not acetal. In any case, the nickel-plated one looks much nicer. :)

Ok, finaly got all the parts I need and I want to set this up tonight. Any noobie tips I might find useful? I'm assuming my loop should be: reservoir ---> pump ---> cpu block ---> radiator

Should I run distilled water through any parts first? Is it a good idea to put the tubes in hot water before installing on the barbs. I'm also assuming I don't need a fill/drainport since I'm using a reservoir?

Thanks!

run warm water through your parts to flush them out then flush with distilled water. hot water will make the tubing easy or easier to work with. i run my setups res-pump-rad-block-res.jmo as always

Thanks for the tip. I ended up going res-pump-rad-block-res. I'm running the pump now to get the air out. Is 24hrs sufficient for this?

Just flush the rad with near-boiling distilled water a few times. Some rads need to be done more then others. What I do is pour the water through a coffee filter and check how much flux is in there. I repeat untill clean.

a 24 bleed test should help remove most of the air but sometimes it can take over a week to get all the air out. so just keep it running
