    I am working on a client build and he wants Water Cooling, and this is my first major water cooling setup. I'm wondering when I'm filling the loop with water, can I fill it with cold water, or do I have to use room temp water?

    Thanks.

    temps dont matter but you MUST use distilled water. tap water is a nono

    seeing as it is a client, they probably won't clean/maintain the loop at all. I would use a bit of anitfreeze with the distilled water, maybe a 10% antifreeze/90% distilled water setup.

    You have to buy some Ready to use coolants, they request change of the liquid after about 6 months of use.
