I have never risked water ever, had my big Noctua heatsink for years now and used it in over 5 builds. Never changing. Never had any of those other issues either, you might have bad luck mate lol

You should be happy to be still alive.
The coolant is similar to the antifreeze you fill into cars and contains Ethylene clycol (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antifreeze#Ethylene_glycol) which builds crystals in your kidneys and make you pee blood.
Kids, dont do such stuff at home!

If you don't understand the need for a powerful system on the go, you are not the target audience.
