    can someone suggest what to top up my cooling fluid with?
    I see the rez is half full and need to top it up, but the town i live in is sold out of the fluid i normally use...

    Sounds like a stupid idea but get some container and fill it with water, then make it cold a chilly in the freezer and pour it in the rez. Easier way is just get cold water.

    Yeah, the fesser stuff is nice, though I've only run distilled water. I don't see the point in coolant unless your putting your w/c loop through ice or something.

    Same here.

    I wouldn't recommend pouring cold water into your loop. If the water gets too cold you could create condensation.

    Don't even bother with the anti freeze. I use nothing but distilled water.
