Default Somebody needs to tell Bitspower...

That the world is in a recession, and does not have a need for things like this.



Bitspower True Golden 1/2in. Compression Fittings for 3/4in. OD Tubing

Yes, that's a gold plated compression fitting for use with water cooling equipment.

I mean honestly guys...

If you were obsessed with gold things, MR. T, or rich it would not be so ridiculous lol. Or if you had really small fingers you could try to use it as a cheap gold ring... with some work to it....

NOOOOOOOOO.

If anything look at their silver plated ones. The silver acts as a natural biocide and kills anything that try's to grow in the loop, negating the need for any additives.

Are you saying that silver, nickel, and brass will?

If so, your very much mistaken.

Um, no they will corrode, not fast but they will.

The green that builds up on brass is corrosion, Nickle and Silver do to, silver gets black, nickle to a small extent does too.

Gold, besides platinum is one of the least reactive metals commonly found, opposite of things like aluminum or Sodium and potasium.


Now the real question is how fast does corrosion happen, for our purposes, lets say 1 year life span, because most of us are gear whores.

Gold, Nickle and Silver won't show signs of corrosion. Brass will have starts of corrosion, but again it's minor.

So "Will they corrode?" The answer is very dependant on expected life span.

But the real qestion should be... How Bling do you want to be?
