Plain water has the best thermal conductivity. That is to say, it picks up and releases heat better than any other liquid. It's over 4-times higher than Propylene glycol and about 2.4 times higher than Ethylene Glycol. So you can see that by adding anything to water will reduce it's thermal conductivity.

Avoid automotive antifreezes and wetters that contain any silicone based compounds. If you want to add a wetter, use a drop of transparent liquid dish soap per 1/2 gallon of water. (This is NOT dishwasher soap.) And the best install in a sealed system would allow evacuating the system and injecting the coolant into the vacuum. Keep the vacuum less than about 28"Hg so that the coolant doesn't vaporize (boil) on injection. Removing the air will remove the carbon dioxide that distilled water absorbs to cause corrosion. (Turns it acidic.)

4.8 thats a nice overclock for the FX. for a 10C drop that's a nice investment.

Good Job on 4800mhz I recently posted an overclock of 5.045 Ghz http://www.sevenforums.com/overclock...ml#post2384719
