Basically mate, their nickle blocks have issues with them pealing inside and causing problems.. Not the best of things sadly.. I think a quick google might help find out :)

Mainly if you use distilled water with silver coil though from my understanding.

If you run pre-mixed coolants that have anti-corrosion stuff in them, it should last longer.

I have read so many articles going back and forth on Distilled water and Pre-mixed coolants. It seems 50/50

1. Certain chemical additives based on pure silver and Copper Sulphate that were added to the loops all of these cases have made distilled water electrolytic and with its properties they caused corrosion of nickel plating.

See, pretty sure it's mainly targeted at those who use Distilled + Silver Coil. At least from EK's testing.

I know forum reports vary wildly and likely people lying (or not telling the full truth) about their issues too.
