Water Cooling..What to use...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
so i have a few questions. I have a pretty decent water cooling setup and it does a nice job but i was wondering about fluid. i have been using the stuff that came with it and its not to bad. but my main question is, what is a good mix? should i use distilled water and mix in some high end fluid? also i was always very curious to know, but can you use Anti- Freeze from a car and out it in there? im a litle noob to all this so please forgive me

Yeah you can use just auto anti-freeze mix it 5-15% anti-freeze the rest distilled water....

This is what I use..

1- 4 ounce bottle of this to 40 ounces of distilled..

UV Blue Pentosin

Then a couple of drops of this...

PT Nuke


Then for every 40 ounces of the above mix I add 1 and a half ounces of glycerin to help the thermal transfer of the water...You can get it at any Drug-Store for a couple of bux for a 4 ounce bottle....

This is interesting...
