    I have looked everywhere, even sent an email to their support at Bitspower, but can't find details anywhere on their site about what materials this radiator uses. It lists in the specs there a "single copper fin", but says nothing about what material the other fins, ports, etc. are made of. If they were brass/copper, I would think it would be listed as such like on other brands/models. This gives me red flags for concern since I would assume it's aluminum based and very cheap. I certainly don't want to mix that with my copper/nickel I have for the other parts as that will cause trouble.

    Any thoughts or details on this or the radiator?

    All I can find is this exact phrase pasted on every listing:
    “Combine High Quality Copper Material.”

    My bet? It’s a copper/brass blend. Looking at the photos, the thread area is a light color and their goal on these is price.

    I'd be pretty shocked to learn that a company with a Bitspower's reputation would use aluminum in custom loop hardware.

    EK has muddied the waters with their fluid gaming line recently, but up 'til then it's been pretty much assumed - unless you're buying a $15 rad straight from Shanghai, you're getting copper and brass or just straight up copper.

    I got a direct answer straight from the Bitspower web site and I told them it would help others to post this:

    "BPTA-NLSS360-F2PB is mainly made of copper, no aluminum. Both sides which have the logo is an extra stainless steel plate to the copper radiator. All the loop in the radiator is made of copper. So no worries about any combine aluminum with other copper/nickel on your other parts."

    So now we know exactly what materials are used and indeed they are safe to use. I thought this may be helpful for others too.
