Question about water cooling fluid (again)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've decided to water cool my next build. I went with the Monsoon fittings and Primochill Primoflex Advanced LRT (UV Orange) tubing. I know almost everyone says to use distilled water and that's what I'm leaning towards (not mentioning that it's extremely cheap too!). So my question is what is the best additive to get to add to the distilled water. I bought some of the WC stuff used like the Titan X WB and 1 of the Rads (XSPC 360 rad not sure of the model) so I do still want some form of anti corrisive. I was looking at the PT Nuke PHN but that is only a biocide. Thanks for any help.

If you are using distilled water and don't plan to dye, primochill liquid utopia is awesome. Just add one bottle to a gallon of water and you are set. Ive been using it for years with zero problems with corrosion or algae issues.

Just to give another option I've been using XSPC ECX clear. I guess it's more a concentrate than an additive but coming up on a year and seems okay so far.

I have been looking at that 1 too but for $12- $13 a bottle to make only 1 liter seems expensive (for that price I might as well go for primochill ice non conductive coolant or XSPC EC6 coolant).
