This is my Swiftech Storm water block that Swiftech sent to me in early 2005, if I’m not mistaken. It was a sample. First revision. Today I decided to clean it up, but it hardly needed any cleaning at all. The only thing it could possibly need is polishing, but I have no such items
I decided to tear up my Cuplex Kryos XT and clean it up. What’s in there is not copper oxide, but rather, it’s gunk from my Mayhems Aurora Coolant (“Nebula Blue”). I scrubbed it with a toothbrush and applied whatever chemicals I had available at the time, and the result was a much cleaner base.

I have recently decided to get back into watercooling again, but this time I’ll keep it very simple. On monday I will order the following items: EK-Supreme LTX EK-Reservoir Combo DCP 2.2: New case (Corsair Vengeance C70): quite small but yet with enough room for most of the components I need: (this one looks a lot
