Can I run distilled water only for a week or so before my PT Nuke comes?

Plain distilled water for that short a time would be no problem at all.

Sure you can, a lot of guys just run plain distilled...I'd put a couple of drops of the PT Nuke in it like your going to do to be safe...I'd run this for an anti-corrosive to.Pentosin..I mix one 4 ounce bottle of that to 40 or so ounces of distilled water, then 2 drops of the Nuke...Even an all copper and brass loop will still get corrosion, it just takes a long time....

You are taking an unnecessary chance with your rig. Tap water may have contaminants, salts, and some municipalities add things like fluoride. These things can scratch your components and/or increase corrosion potential. Distilled water has all contaminants removed and is very cheap.

In the US, distilled water is easy to come by - about any grocery store sells it in gallon jugs for about $1. I've heard that its not as common to find in Europe, and that deionised water is more common. Don't know about Thailand. Deionised water is NOT the same as distilled water, BTW.

Yes , in Thailand distilled water are very cheap and everywhere
I knew that Distilled water is 100% pure.

But... I have no experience before using liquid cooling system.

My Risk is water from my bath room is 100% conduct electricity so if its leak on my component it will truly DIE !!.



Lastly , I just want to know that which manner of coolant is the coolest ?

Plain distilled water will give you the best temp's, I like to run a biocide and a anti-corrosive also...I know WC'ing stuff there is probably kind of hard to find...You can just use a 1 ounce bottle of iodine tincture, the kind that has a little alcohol in it and then 5-15% car anti-freeze for the anti-corrosive.If you can find iodine crystals you can just melt some of them in water and use that, it doesn't take much, you don't want it so strong that it will stain your tubing....I'd just do 10% with the anti-freeze, that would give you a 10-1 mix, so for every 40 ounces of distilled add 4 ounces of anti-freeze...
