I was doing some research on liquid coolants. I was reading someone's post about a coolant that evaporates at lower temps than water. I was thinking about this and I realized that ethanol[or any form of alcohol] evaporates at lower temps than water. [ever spilled some on ur skin and felt how cold it became?]. but my question is that if u mixed this in with a regular watercooling system would you get better results? I know that in evap. cooling you would but you would prob get high on evaporated ethanol.....ouch. I also read about substances called electrically inert cooling fluids. I think 3M sells these and if I am correct they can be used in total immersion of cpu and all. That would be nice. anyway, How would you find out if a fluid was electrically conductive?
