My temps are the exact same as day 1, which is a good, but lacking sign.
I'm using distilled & koil.
I must be old school... I remember when the going advice was "distilled & silver/dead water onry"
EK is one of the companies in the camp that says not to use silver, even with the EN blocks I believe, Koolance is another. I wouldn't be too worried about it, it's very rare things go wrong with loops these days, but when things do go bad it, seems it goes really bad, really fast. Like Mega Man said the changing out liquid helps a lot, o-rings might be kinda hard. As for better temps with water, I haven't seen much of a difference, I think it has to do with having overhead on my rads. Though it has been proven many times water will give better temps.
