Soooo, been reading the "battery effect" thread.

Here's my setup Maze 3 , Chevette Heatercore, Eheim 1048 with some water wetter. Everything else is PVc (plastic barbs and res.)

Question : How long do i have till my Chevette heatercore corrodes away enough to leak, ?
Also, what heatercores are totally copper and where to get them ?

This is one of the main reasons i am quite glad i built my own "EXOS" external watercooling setup. at least it won't spew on my computer's insides.
