sorry mate, just read it just then. Must've missed it earlier.
Hahahah, alright alright, I'll put some up when the parts arrive.
No trouble. I just really want to keep your setup simple and the least expensive possible!
I'll probably make a new thread to show my parts and the setup (in the Project Logs section). Gonna try to make a custom setup for the radiator (doesn't event fit on top of the case), have it sorta hanging out the window like an a/c so that the warm air doesn't vent into my room.
the problem with car coolant only is a few things.
1 it's meant for cars
2 it's think and won't flow like water will
3 it isn't exactly a formula optimized for cooling, it simply won't corrode metal and has a mild biocide in it
i prefer feser one, it tests in some instances better than distilled water, and it has the right amount of biocide/anticorrosives to be an effective coolant
i don't mind distilled with kill coil and biocide either, i just don't think it's easy to get the right combination of biocide to not kill the performance of the water.
he should put his results online then.. it's hard to find good reviewers and testors outside of skineelabs
Feser coolant is ethylene glycol. You are paying extra money for the exact same thing.
Been W/C for almost 10yrs. Destilled/deionized + some automotive A/F and you are GOLDEN!
Premixed coolants are a waste of $$$.
Straight water is the best.
