    You can shorten that loop significantly by putting the res closer to the pump. I know it should be the highest point in your loop, you can sit the case on its side

    Otherwise, not bad.

    No more coolant? Distilled water is under a dollar a gallon here. Add a little radiator fluid and you are talking $5 TOPS.

    No, I have plenty of distilled water, I have 2/3's of the gallon I bought left, but I used all my HydrX lol. They dont sell coolant in stores here, however I think it would be OK to run it on just water and biocide.

    Btw, this is my first post on my new computer! YAY! Lol.

    Oh, radiator fluid. I dont really like the idea of putting that inside my rig though lol. Then again, w/e. Btw, do they have different colored fluid? I will laugh when I go to the mechanic and ask for a specific colored fluid.

    There is green (default), blue and pink I believe. You want about a 98% to 2% ratio of water:radiator fluid, you don't need much at all.

    And some biocide? Or does the fluid already have anti-growth stuff inside?
    I will get blue, it matches my case.

    Nothing will grow in the radiator fluid

    It has Ethylene Glycol in it.
