    I know they had problems with nickel and i thought it was fixed but my complete WC is bought in sept.2012 and thing still corode. For the block they offered me replacement and untill i didnt know for the problem with my gpu block they sent me fresh Ekoolant.Few days back i wanted to add 120mm XT rad and noticed few fittings are coroded,i still didnt contact EK-WB for that matter i plan to order for some new parts in few days so i was hoping to do all together .
