Will brass cause Corrosion in this Loop?

I sat down today and re-read some old watercooling guides, and to my horror totally overlooked the T-line splitter!

I had a plastic one to begin with, but then ordered the brass one as I didn't want it to split if I overtightened the hose clips too much.

Now have I made a fatal error?

My loop consists of:

Thermochill PA120.3

D-tek fuzion

Brass t-line

Swiftech MC655

Will this have a significant impact on the loop?

I'm using 10% antifreeze/de-ionized water mix

Brass is fine. Why do you think there are blocks with brass tops? It's aluminum that you need to be worried about

You'll be fine mate. Looks like you'll only have copper and brass (copper alloy) in your loop, so you don't even need any corrosion inhibitor. I've got 2 brass T's in my loop and they're brill.

That's great news!

I still can't believe I over looked something that could have been so important!

Thanks again!

Yup, WC is right here. Plus, water in the loop usually isn't in contact with the t-line cap 24/7 anyway.
