obviously, from a thermal standpoint, water is.
but water can be corrosive overtime, even when purified.

my radiator, a MASSIVE tranny cooler from a junkyard car, is as tall as my atx case and as deep too. it is all aluminum. its so big infact, that i believe i do not need a fan.

i dont have a pump yet
i dont have a water-block yet.
hoses will be bought from pet store so i can get silocone ones.

i have read that MASSIVE thread on water cooling liquids. but the problem with that thread is it is meant more for people who will be fighting freezing tempatures..
what about us guys who dont need to keep the water from freezing, i would think that being freed from these constraints would help our water combination to excel.

say 5% water wetter combined with 95 distilled% water.???

also, wheres a cheap place to buy a good pump and a good waterblock?

anyone have used pump or waterblock they wanna sell?

Errr, until you have 100 posts, all wanted hardware, selling hardware belongs in the classifieds (Members under 99 posts and under are restricted from seeing them). Yes your water should consist of some what 95% distilled water, 5% water wetter.

I think the best liquid is mercury. Its a little tricky to come by though....

If your nto worried about freezing temps use ditilled water and water wetter, Im not sure of the ratios cause I dont use it.
