Hey what happens if you were to mix like 2 or more coolants together or if you just use coolant instead of water for cooling?

Until you get more experience i.e. by visiting an overclocking event should you not stick to just simple watercooling? Unless of course you're willing to spend thousands of dollars on an industrial grade cooling setup so you can push your overclock an extra 1GHz .
What would be a good liquid that can conduct heat fast, but also conduct coldness fast too?
Water really is the best bet at the moment, there's no use trying to jump straight into really exotic forms of cooling straight off the bat. The best conductor of heat is Liquid Helium, however you'd have to hold it at around 6 degrees Kelvin for it to be in that state.
There is also silver, but good luck trying to acquire enough to serve the purpose and maintaining it at around 1250 degrees Kelvin so it is a liquid.
Yea I guess I will stick with the water (with some coolant type stuff of course >.<)

I can't wait too see them
