can i use cold, triple filtered tapwater, with no metal present in it teporarily?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
so my loop isnt holding temps, my AC can barely hold the room at 25 celsius

its idling at 41 and hot air is coming off the rad, i was figuring, that since its so warm in here i could pul lthe icewater bucket trick?

the question is, can i use my highly filtered tap water for a few days till temps drop outside? and then flush and rotate distilled back as im too busy and a bit short on cash to buy more distilled atm.

Better to just drop your rad in a bucket of ice water then you don't have to break down your loop....

If your loop allows, I would follow GSA's advice.

i have loose tubing on my inlet to my pump, and outlet from the port on my 8600, near the bottom of the case, i cant do what you suggested as my line from my rad to cpu is too short for such, my gpu rad i certainly could.

EDIT: i could always use some spare tubing, or just attach the cpu line to the 5770 and run 1 pump?

Yah, forget using any filtered tap water unless the filtering is RO.


RO, DI and distilled water are good enough.

Well first of all. Central air or window unit. Somethings wrong unless it's 110 outside or your house is very poorly insulated.

Also, if your loop is below ambient temps, you will have condensation (which isn't good at all) It's on of those things you just have to be careful with. And sure 41 idle isn't the best for a watercooled system, but just accept you are going to have air cooled temps until your ambients drop.
