    New to watercooling. Just finished installing my first RS240 kit, but forgot this. Can someone tell me what this thing is and what its for anyway? Thanks in advance.

    Will it be ok 2 put in anyway? Bottle said not to mix anything so is it safe? As far as thermal paste go use one that come with kit (white not labeled stuff) or use GO2 from GELID? I got both.

    If you are using an EK Nickel block they suggest not using the coils or biocides and opt for ethylene glycol.

    Edit: If just the kit and no extra cpu block then just ignore :) I saw good things about using Mayhems biocide.
