Windex Water Cooling...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Couldn't find too much on the web about this so I decided to just try it and see what comes out the other side.


MY SPECS...
i5 3570k
MSI Z77 MPower BigBang
MSI HD 7950 TF III
16gig Corsair Vantage 2x8
1tb HDD
120gig SSD
XSPC 720 Dual Rad Raystorm Cooled (just CPU)
Corsair GS700 PSU


Im using a half/ half mix of good store bought distilled water and PowerX glass cleaner w/ ammonia. I put a drop of dish-washing soap and one drop of that bio stuff. (hope Im not getting to technical for ya) I am holding off on using any color dyes until I see whats going to happen with this experiment. So far, so good...

After one hour I went to check on it and the microbubbles from the glass cleaner made the water in the res have kinda of a "Mayhem Aurora" effect, I wounder if adding dye to the water will make the effect go away or make it were you can see it better. Like I said before, I really couldn't find anything on the internet about glass cleaner and using it in a PC water cooling setup...so ***!

P.S. Im no water cooling expert, I just had an extra system I could try this out on for the heck of it so give me some incite and/or advice.

I'll get some pics up in a couple of hours so you can see the "Mayhem Aurora" effect I was talking about.

cross your fingers the ammonia doesn't deteriorate the rubber o-rings

always do research on how certain chemicals interact with the different parts of your watercooling loop

How long you think? Diluting with distilled water wont help that?

Its an experiment. But as far as I know, it won't harm anything.
