Intel to unify product naming scheme

Intel are apparently taking a leaf out of AMD's book in an attempt to unify processor naming schemes. According to the source article, Intel plans to unify the product names of its CPUs and platforms beginning on January 1, 2008 to simplify the company's complicated product lines.

For processors, the Core 2 Quad, Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Solo will be combined under the name Core 2, while Pentium Dual-Core and Pentium D processors will combine under the Pentium brand. Also, Itanium 2 processors will change to just Itanium, noted the sources. Core 2 Extreme, Celeron and Xeon processor names will remain unchanged.

For platforms, Viiv Processor Technology and vPro Processor Technology will change to Core 2 Processor with Viiv Technology and Core 2 Processor with vPro Technology, respectively. Centrino Processor Technology and Centrino Duo Processor Technology will combine to Centrino Processor Technology, while Centrino Pro Processor Technology will become Centrino with vPro Technology, noted the sources. In addition, Intel's brand logo stickers will also be changed.

Intel schedules to finish the adoption of the new product names before March 31, 2008...the changes will simplify the choices for consumers and businesses, provide consistency and clarity for messaging, and create an efficient, less complex and more sustainable brand roadmap, while minimizing the impact to customers.

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.
