  1. FWIW in automotive cooling systems, and marine cooling systems ( especially salt water) they put a piece of zinc in the system which corrodes before the Aluminum. It's called a sacrificial anode. This is what allows aluminum radiators to be used in mixed metal cooling systems.

  2. If you are going to utilize copper and aluminum in a loop together, I would strongly recommend using a form of anti-corrosive coolant in order to help prevent this issue. For PC watercooling, we really try to stress not using aluminum as many other components utilize copper and nickel.

  3. There aren't any AIOs out there that I know of, that used mixed metals. If they did....I certainly wouldn't be buying it.

    Which AIO are you talking about?

    NM...Thermaltake. Don't buy that crap.
