Question Where exactly to put the Silver Kill Coil?

The Silver Kill Coil is great but the last two times I put it in two different reservoirs it got smashed against the outflow of the res. Maybe it obstructed and maybe not - the temps were OK but...

Where is the best place to make sure you don't obstruct but still get flow to make silver enter the water?

In a tube? Where? Between pump and radiator? Between res and pump? In a half-filled fill-port tube? Exactly where please? Thanks.

In the tube, in a Res, does not matter.

The whole point is for it to kill micro-organisms that can grown inside a water cooling setup. This is most likely to happen when using Mixed metal water blocks and or clear tubing near natural light.

Hope this helps.

i would place it in the tube going IN to your block. if it slips out the tube it won't flow into the cpu block, and shouldn't obstruct flow.

Aren't you suppose to stretch it to fit the tube without getting caught in current? I've never used one, so IDK. I would say expand it to fit tight to edge of toob that goes from last component in loop back to res, somewhere near res.

as long as it's in the water flow it will be fine.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Since the soft silver got bent out of shape in the res, it concerned me. I will place the coil inside a tube this time and see what happens.

That made me smile I would just change the shape to a large circle that won't fit in the tubes or fittings and leave it to bob about, thats my cunning plan

In 2 different reservoirs, the soft coil wrapped around the plastic "bubble busters" no matter how I shaped it. But I don't think it hurt the flow as the CPU didn't complain.

So this time, I put 2 coils in the tubing to see what would happen - rewound them to get snug (ha). They are anything but stationary. They flow straight up from the pump in the bottom of the case to a rad barb in the top. Or they will follow some bends to find the block intake. In the tubing, the coil keeps its shape so seems even less likely to affect flow.

It is kind of funny and probably harmless but I guess the coil is going to move with the water current.
