I have seen other dry ice runs here but most of them seem like a very temporary solution. By dropping it in a reservoir full of alcohol... or maybe something else with a very very low freezing point, I would be able to use it more long term. Any other suggestions would be appreciated in this matter thanks in advance!!

that seems promising!

pm me the results plz

And as fstfrddy said distilled water with a touch of antifreeze is imo the only way to go.
I read that antifreeze will commonly eat through the plastic tubing or corrode the waterblocks. I'm pretty sure you don't want to use antifreeze.

Alcohol has better heat dispersion properties than water, but it absorprtion properties are piss-poor.
