Wouldn't recommend it. Most here will say the same thing; colored tubing with distilled + biocide is the best way to do it.

All you need is distilled water with pt nuke or a silver coil that is it.

I like pc ice if its a pre bought coolant but distilled/pt nuke or silver coil is fine. Will you be mixing metals?

Honestly don't see the point of coolants as they provide no performance gain nor any benefits aside from color. If you were too cheap and bought clear tubing then you're probably losing money as you have to invest in coolants for color when you could have spent that extra buck or two on colored tubing.

Not sure but I think mixing metal causes heavy stains on your loop. If you wanted a colored reservoir you could of just added an led light or gotten a frozenq reservior(reactor/liquidF res).

Using coolants causes a ton of buildup later on and an extreme pain to clean out sometimes.

I'm not sure on the stain w/ mixing metals though I did see a post by a member who had mixed metals and his blocks came out pretty stained. Case isn't all that there is to airflow, fans and other stuff too. Cooling your memory is also more important than your mosfets.
