yeah it should work, but you do know its a mixture of water and antifreeze your suppose to use. Also don't use water weter. I use fluid XP+ in my system instead of a water/antifreeze mixture..

yeah You can use a mixture of Anti-Freeze and Destilled Water however I use PrimoChill PC Ice Extreme and have very good results.. just don't Take the Non-Conductive BS cause it is conductive just not as fast as water...

PC ICE E > Water/Antifeeze IMHO

I disagree. numerious people have proved fluid xp+ is non-cunductive. It will ruin hard drives and optical drives but curcitry it will not. I've yet to have a leak personally but I feel a LOT better having fluid xp in there than distilled water.

I was not speaking of fluid XP+ but I can tell you from the burnt parts i have that PC Ice is Conductive....

You can use 5-10% Anti-freeze and the rest distilled water...

ok, you could be right because I have no experience with PC Ice. It kinda looked fishy to me when I was considering it a while back. But I've heard good reviews for fluid xp+ so thats why I went with it. Although over time it might loose its non-conductive property since nothing perfect.
