    That stuff works fine. I don't bother putting anything in my loop other than a capful of alcohol.

    One thing I don't get about that Water Wetter thing is that it says it cools up to 20 degrees better... for34lz?

    Yes. That all it takes. Though some people insist on a biocide. I use PT Nuke, but that's only because I bought it a year ago, and a small bottle lasts forever.

    Remember tho kantastic water wetter is not designed for watercooling pc's it's for cars. so you might get a 20c drop in a cars water temps and it also says "run up to" so there is no guarantee.

    1. Add red wine to cooling setup
    2. Enjoy red wine while playing (make sure there is enough in reservoir, we don't want unexpected cooling problems)
    3. ????
    4. PROFIT!
