I'd be interested in finding out what it is. I havn't found any liquid that's compatible with a cooling system and has better thermal properties.

Pretty much everything I've seen designed for water cooling is ethelene glycol based with various UV dyes and other addatives. Ethelene glycol is just antifreeze, so it's more of an automotive handoff. It does help act as an antifugal and anticorrosive addative, but at the same time it has less than half the thermal conductivity and also less than half the specific heat of pure water, not to mention higher viscocity.

I'd love to see something work better than water and not have the fungal/corrosion problems of water though..

I would like to show you a few videos by my good friend Alex from Petras Tech Shop..... he blows the whole "non conductive fluid" junk out of the water. (yay puns)


and the "famous" feser fan test.

Water has the best thermal properties but as you can see from the video it will cause failures regardless of its purity. Nanocoolers was trying to promote a liquid metal system and that had better thermal properties than water but was very expensive and even though they said it was non-toxic, come on, who where the kidding. 3M makes a line of fluorinert liquids specifically designed for electronic cooling applications, google it, you'll find tons of links. It's not as thermally capable as water when both are used in a single phase system BUT many times the fluorinert is using in a 2-phase flow boiling system. Think of it like a boiling pot of water, no matter how high you turn up the heat, the fluid temperature remains relatively constant. It takes a lot of energy to change from liquid to vapor and in these types of systems it beats water. Fluorinerts are dielectric liquids and are non reactive to electronics, many times the entire assembly is submerged in the fluid to cool it. However, these fluids are extremely expensive and not really for the casual hobbiest.

Yep Feser One is awesome.

Along with any de-ionized water

I use 1 liter of Feser One and then top it up with de-ionized water and it hasn't failed me yet.

And to prove it works. I can happily supply a picture of were some leaked onto my GPU and it is still going strong

It is also one of the cheapest and effective coolants going.

I use that MCT stuff from DD. Gives me pretty good temps. compared to pure distilled water, and I was glad I had it when my reservoir broke. Still, everything becomes conductive when dust is around, so at the end of the day nothing will save your components from shorting out. If you build your loop well you really don't have to worry (that much) about leaks anyway. Distilled water with a cheap biocide (like Petra's PT Nuke or Swiftech's Hydrx) is more than enough.
