I just purchased this water chiller from the classifieds Here!! (http://www.ocforums.com/showthread.php?t=390079&highlight=water+chiller). I am wondering what would be the best liquid to use with this chiller. I have also read the guide for inuslation on XS and am wondering how much Insulation is really needed, also where can I purchase some neoprene, cork seal tape, or seal string, and dielectric grease. Do I really need to insulate as much as this. I will be chilling my gpu and cpu. Insulation guide. (http://wwww.vr-zone.com/?i=230&s=1)
Thanks for the advice.

Liquid - anti freeze, make sure you get stuff that can handle very cold temps and will not freeze. You can order neoprene and various seal string type things from 3M, check the website. Dielectric grease from most auto parts stores, make sure it is non-conductive.
Insulation is the most important part of a chiller system. You can not have any tubing or any part of the water blocks exposed to air or you will have condensation dripping all over your components. Don't skimp on the insulation unless you want to risk a lot of $$ in dead hardware.
