False, there are dielectric liquids on the market, however; they are difficult to manufacture. Due to the difficulty of their manufacturing they are rather expensive. Like $150-$300 per gallon expensive.

They will not carry an electric charge.


Anywho,

Case is that i've been using PC Ice so far and i really love it, both for being a rdy-to-go and because after 1+ year my musterkleer tubes are crystal clear. But now that im building a new wc setup, ICE is out of stock from the store im buying, only Pure is in stock.


I do have some PC Ice in place (1 full bottle and a half), but i'm not sure if it will be enough to fill the loop (especially with the SR1 560). Hence i'd like to know what's the difference between the 2 products and if i can mix Pure with Ice.


I've already mailed Primochill but no answer yet...

I had some nasty scaling issues with PrimoChill coolants, and as such I personally stray from recommending them. I also have about 5 liters of PrimoChill Pure performance in my garage, if you want a couple tongue.gif

They're Clear/UV blue

It's a pretty important point though. I am not sure of fluids taking on ions like distilled water does, it may be true but whether or not those ions are "available" to conduct electricity...
But I generally find that it is only more experience water-coolers who use distilled water.
First timers are **** scared of frying their goods, and rightly so as well!
