Never meant to cause offence or anything, I meant you were missing my point that custom coolants have a content value of around 90 to 95% distilled water so it's pretty much one in the same thing. It doesn't matter what you buy to put in your loops, you are getting the same level of conductivity after about 3 days.
Ah alright I get what you were trying to say before. I wasn't quite sure what you were getting at before but thanks for clearing that up a bit.
I would like to know though, based on the EK Premix stuff it seems to have some different proprieties than your run of the mill non-conductive/distilled water coolant.
Whereas what you say is true (about the ionization of the water/coolant), out of curiously though if the coolant/water has already be deionized does that still remain true about the coolant/water becoming ionized again?
I ask this because when one of my 7970s took a bath in the stuff energized it didn't bother it. If the coolant had become ionized again then it should of by all accounts fried it correct? This had also been the same coolant circulating in my loop for around 3 months at this point when this happened.
Also I want to thank you for actually taking to time to really explain what you were trying to say to me from before.
