from my car lol yup its antifreeze and b4 u say stuff let me explain.

I had to use it cos thats all i had in terms of corrosion protection. and i was storing bottles of this stuff in the freeze to see how high i can over clock. i got to 1890 with cpu temps at 11 degs.

are the fans on your radiator blowing anywhere? you may be able to decrease the temps by putting a fan on the other side to reduce air pressure.

yah its a pretty tight fit i got to get more fans to increase flow but its just blowing in to the case at the moment and extracted up the top by a 5 1/4 drive bay

Looks like a lot of antifreeze to me 2. I love the duct tape. (my computer just wouldn't be right without it)

antifreeze may not work as well, but it sure looks cool. Has anyone tried food coloring or something else to get cool looking water?

looks nice

the only thing I would change is that anti-freeze, unless you are mixing copper and aluminum together you only need like 5% of the system to be anti-freeze. Water transfers heat much better thin anti-freeze so you will decrease your temps if you dilute the anti-freeze with water.

some people use dielite, some use food coloring, iv tried one of them liquidy pens... the pen stained the hoses really good.... i think food coloring mite stain it, but it mite not, give it a try.... im gonna use a highlighter for my next one instead of dielite...
