    I am currently in my quest to build a new computer. I am asking this question ahead of time to streamline the build. I heard a while back that distilled water was the best "coolant" to run through a watercooled system. Is that true, or do I have to buy other extravagant liquids?

    I used Pc ice, sort of a mineral oil based product. I then swapped to distilled water. Temps were reasonably close to each other, slightly in favor of distilled water.

    Oh yeah and the price....PC ICE is like $20 a bottle and DW is likw $1.99 a gallon!
