Default mixing rads

I have a question about mixing parts. I currently have swiftech everything. My cpu block, pump, and rad are all swiftech. I am thinking of maybe adding a single 140.1 to my loop to help with some of the heat. Dazmode has an EK coolstream XTC 140.1 in his store. Would adding that to my loop cause any issues mixing with the other manufacturers stuff?

Different rads won't be a problem at all. The only possible problem i know when it comes to watercooling is mixing pumps(only applicable if you use two). Doubt you would ever need two pumps though.. Probably just a precaution if someone fears that one of their pumps may die at any moment..

just set-up in cmos the cpu shut down @ 60c for most bios have this option

OP mixing rads provided their same metals inside rad

eg. alu and copper don't mix, makes fluid galvantic
