or if you want anti corrosion because you mixed metals like me, Find some automotive anitfreeze of your choice and let the mixture be 96% distilled water and 4% antifreeze.
THe antifreeze has a little coolant in it along with it being very toxic, kills any bacteria which is like biocide and adds a nice little color to the loop. Temp difference? In my loop by adding antifreeze i stayed the same temp and lowered a little under load....

That wasn't because of the added coolant. Radiator coolant has a lower heat capacity than water, so adding coolant should increase your temperatures, if only slightly. (<0.1C for a 4% solution)

You definitely fixed an unrelated problem when you added the anti-freeze, or your ambients went down.

Distilled water + PT NUKE.

I'm not into water cooling and I know that. People post it like everyday!

I might actually move to real loop this winter but I'm scared of leaks and killing my computer. I wish someone local would come and help me do it

Yes.

I hate dyes with a passion myself because it stains just about everything. If used excessively it can even clog up. I bought a pump used by a dye-fan and the inlet was partially clogged with Feser-crap.

I'm gonna go against the grain here and say that distilled + AC Fluid is the best option. Far better than PT Nuke.

AC Fluid and PT Nuke is pretty much the same.

I am the same like ^, and really my temp is little down with good antifreeze coolant..
