WC Coolant

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Most colored bottles don't look like they contain much coolant. Do you mix the coolant with distilled water, or just all coolant?

Most people are going to recommend just distilled water and a kill coil or PT nuke since the coolant will load your blocks up with crap.

This is what will happen if you use a coolant other than distilled water + PT-Nuke or silver ill coil.
