What can happen though is that if it's an exceptionally hot day, the unit might not be able to handle the heat from the CPU (if the OC is already testing the limits of the unit) and the unit will shut down. Which means that the rig will shut down because of overheating.
If it gets too hot a day chances are i won't use my desktop, I'll be using my laptop with my portable AC aimed at me, So now to hunt down a 240v compatible Phase change i guess, I know little devil does them, I know cooler express makes them but i can't seem to find anyone else who builds phase change units.

It will if you try hard enough.

I have seen a few frozen waterfalls in my day.I could not quite picture the "heater core from an old bettle".Old Bettles were air cooled (with heater boxes)

Just said that I remember reading something about adding something, I assumed it was a heater core, from an old beetle to your loop. Ill see what I can find after school.

I don't know if this has been said before, but just something to think about from a fellow aussie, due the high humidity, condensation is a big issue. The dewpoint here can get to around 18-20C, which means that anything below that, forms condensation. Which means you will have to insulate, etc. I will have to do the same thing with my chiller setup.

The problem with not using some sort of antifreeze, is that the water doesn't freeze, but in non-circulating area's you can get ice forming, even slush.

Also, just make your own chiller. Pop onto ebay, grab a couple 60w TEC's. I'm sure you can find, or have a "waterblock" fashioned for the TEC's.
To give you an idea, this is what is about to go into my system:

The TEC's wired in series, with the hot sides on a heatsink cooled by a fan.

Here you can see the "waterblock" in the middle with 3/8 barbs on it.

Big thanks goes to zaqwsx from TPU for selling me this.

If you use TECs on the blocks themselves, then you need only insulate the actual block and the entire cooling system can run at ambient. This also means that you could just use normal distilled water.
