Default MCT-5 Fluid revisited: After the Spill

Today we revisit MCT-5 in particular and itīs effectiveness in a real world environment. Be forewarned, what your about to see isnīt pretty and may have long term traumatic effects on those whom love their graphic cards. Remove the children from the room, put on your Goulashes and pour yourself a strong one

I wasn't sure how this scenario was going to work out. In the end there are still tests to be conducted on other hardware involved.

I must say this, without a doubt John has taken a mediocre article and gave it really nice flow. Exclellent writing for someone as busy as he.

The KJS Noodle factory is open for business once again.

Just as I was deciding between MCT and mixing my own solution. MCT it is, thank you very much for sharing your experience Liquid . I'm gonna be using fuel line clamps on my hoses. I was wondering if anyone has better suggestions for securing tubing?

I'm more curious what the solution will do to radiator liners and the pump should it leave residues as such.

I have to say my friend I love that username Goingpostale 1, hehe. Sometimes we see so many we overlook the sense of humor behind them.My friend Justin uses Nailbomb

I think your making a good choice. I mean it's not that other brands aren't good, but it's not often you get a "real-world" test hehe.

Any solution that leaves residue when dried will adhere to any surface at liquid form; or react to. I am not quite sure, I dropped out of Industrial Chemistry in College, couldn't hack it after 18 months

I got this item less than a month ago. It generally was easy to install and performed well but due to its plastic enclosure, it all of a sudden cracked and what happened then is horrifying. Though, I probably lucked out at most of the liquid just sipped onto the bottom of the case but some of it got around and into my agp slot frying my x850xt, and it then went down a few more slots and even though it leaked over my secondary NIC and Audigy2, it didn't fry them. My whole northbridge was wet but luckily it survived and I managed to clean up the leak from inside the agp slot and get my computer back up. And I didn't even get to OC my rig after I got this waterblock...I dare not thing what would have happened if I did. If you need a NB waterblock, please look further and make sure to get a solid sealed copper or aluminum one instead, avoid any blocks that have plastic window on them. Now I have $500 worth of stuff to replace because of a $20 waterblock, amazing!

Can we see pictures of your rig before and after? What watercooling system are you using?

I'll wish you luck but the most important thing is to be THOROUGH double check all connections. I also have been placing folded paper-towels just beneath the waterblock letting it rest on the mounting screws so if any liquid happens to leak when you first turn on the system it'll catch it. You can leave them there until you feel comfortable until your sure every connection is water-tight


I just adpated an Alphacool VGA cooler and installed it on my Asus P5ND2-SLi dlx northbridge C19, since they run so HOT. I'm hoping this will help. I also installed their CAPE KC42 XC (reviewed
here) which they recently sent me the Socket-775 adapter for, making another review for plethora I have. I wish Com-Tra would get back to me as well as OCUK whom was supposed to contact me about the Storm G4 by Swiftech.

The new set-up looks coolio....
