antifreeze is yellow/green

best bet would be colored tubing with distilled water and pt nuke.

uuuuhhhh.....no not necessarily.

At my work we sell blue, red, green, and yellow antifreeze, just will it kill my pump and eat through the tubing or something? Cause car radiator antifreeze is specially formulated for heat transfer.

And it's the same price as distilled water, a buck a litre

normally people mix it with distilled water, but no it will not hurt anything. don't expect much of a difference in temps though (if any at all).

btw, what are the differences between those one's your work sells? normally if it is blue it will have detergent in it and you do not want that.

You only need small amount of anti freeze in a loop, no need to pour the entire quart in it. Anti freeze has a much higher viscocity than water and will put added stress on the pump if a full quart is used.

MATERIAL............................APPROXIMATE VISCOSITY
................................................ (in centipoise)
Water @ 70 F....................................1 to 5
Blood or Kerosene.................................10
Anti-Freeze or Ethylene Glycol.................15

Ira-k has a very nice write up on how to make your own coolant mix.

Can't believe I missed those! I was going through mdpc yesterday trying to find builds by you. They look great!

It's not just PrimoChill that does that though. I had a homemade reservoir that ended up gunking up my loop over time. There were pretty thin channels in my CPU block and some of the epoxy that was used to glue the barbs into the tank came out and got stuck in the block. Temps went up due to the restrictiveness of having half the channels blocked by gunk. Opened up the block and it was fairly disgusting.. It's probably a good idea to get a wider channeled CPU block if you want to use a dye in your loop so that it isn't quite so easy for any gunk that does form, to stick in the channels and mess things up.

I would like to throw my rig into the fray and be added to the list. This is my first watercooled computer that I finished about 5 days ago. Lovin' the coolness and the OC'ing it allows. I will be adding a GPU block as well as NB/SB later too.

Components:

XSPC RX360 Rad
EK Supreme HF CPU Block
Swiftech MicroRes
D5 Vario Pump w/ EK D5 X-Top Rev. 2
Clearflex 60 - 1/2" ID x 3/4" OD Tubing
