We're just old, not dead. Just because you're on a diet doesn't mean you can't look at the menu.
Good point Steve.

Hehehehe, yeah but she is 20 (high five) and to you that would be like looking at the kiddies menu...

Anyway, Steve you gave me a reason to post pics of my rig Again, and seeing as no one wanted to see my new ram, It worked out great,haha.

Here are pics of Anti-frees I added to my loop, reasons- Steve, and his debate on corrosion (thanx mate) Unfortunatly I could't get the light blue or clear ones,so I am stuck with the green, but The white tubing hides it

Anyway,temps are up with 2 degrees(because it's thicker then normal distilled water,but it took out the air bubbles and prevents corrosion so win win)

What ratio did you use water/antifreeze?
60/40 to 50/50 is normal for an automobile but that is to prevent overheating by increasing the boil point of a pressurized system and freezing.

90/10 to 95/5 should be sufficient for corrosion resistance.
I think 95% distilled water and 5% AF would be optimal.

Mostly curious on your mix ratio.

Around 10%. Depending on the loop size I seen people generally use around 15% But seeing as you can use pure antifreeze as coolant I get the fact that you can't add to much, it just gets thicker,but I added some separately to distilled water,mixed it,then filtered it into my res,so it may be less then my intended 10% haha.

That sounds like a good compromise.

When AF turns the water color you have corrosion resistance.
Algae is no longer a problem.

You can add too much. No more than a 50/50 or it turns to jelly if too cold. Not likely in a PC I realize.
It does make it harder on the pump at 50/50.

So 10% should do well.

My question is; is there a manufacturer for anti-freeze specifically designed for computers?
