    Hello I just took the plunge in to liquid cooling, I peaced together a swiftech system off eBay and saved allot of money. I went with an APOGEE universal CPU block, MCP350 pump, 120mm quiet power radiator, all from swiftech. Now all I need is the fluid I was thinking about going with primo chill PC ICE, is this a good coolant? It says it’s non conductive so I take it that means it wouldn’t fry my mobo if it leaked? I just want a good performing coolant that inset to expensive 30 dollars or less.

    What about PC ICE from I "think its called" primo chill, is that stuff any good? Also I see swiftech has its own brand and its really cheap how does that perform and does it need to be pre mixxed?

    hey

    i know this is probly not for u but its lots of fun with a liquid chiller

    i was useing antyfreez an will agean 1 day [its a bit thick an not real good at room temp ]but at -15c its still flowin strong

    worst part about a/f is its corosive eats at serkets on top of being conductive [if allso hered some a/f is toxic an dont get the non evaperating kind it sucks

    for room temp running i just use streat water with a cap of bleach in it to keep it clear

    i dont get leaks an my board is sealed in case i do
