I would be a little leary using it vinny, there some big differences between that and regular coolant. Maybe post this at pureoc and see what the experts say about it.

I goggled it and it seems that other people have been using this for quite some time with good results on their rigs using it straight or a 50 50 mix with purified water and it has no effect on metal aluminum\copper\brass or steel and doesn't hurt the pump. well we will see I will be the genie pig and let you know time will tell!

Cool as long as you found some type of documentation saying it was safe you should be ok, my main concern would be the increase of potential electrical damage caused by increased conductivity.

I will borrow the conductivity meter from work I know the water is zero conductivity, its triple filtered for the printing presses, and will check it out tomorrow.

I added about 25% RO water to it, with zero conductivity, It seems to be running just fine,I did another mod to the freezone unit took out the stock fan and put in a 120mm fan in its place for a better push pull configuration and spaced out my hard drives to get better airflow from the front intake fan over the hard drives, which dropped the HD temps about 5 degrees, I am almost done have one more mod to do and then I will post more pictures.

Along with the new block I will also be adding 2 of these fans 1 to intake which blows over the HD cage and the other to the exhaust on the back of the freezone

Vinny, let us know how loud or quiet they are. 88CFM is about 30 more than the Noctua.

Vinny I am sure if the fan is a little loud at full speed you could connect it to a fan controller and dial it in where it gives good airflow at a modest noise level.

Yes I thought about that as well Joel good idea, I will let you guys know as soon as I install them how they perform and what kind of temp drops I get inside as well as over my hard drives.

Does the case you use have exhaust fans(s) in the top?

If not you may want to think about a small mod to cut a whole in the case and instal a fan with a mess screen over it?

I am running the Thermaltake shark full tower it has cutouts on the door side of the case covered with wire mesh, which I have added a filter material on the inside to keep the dust out, I have often thought of modding the door and replacing it with some Plexiglas and adding a door fan to it my case temps are pretty good I think, they run around 24 degrees Celsius its the hard drive bay area that needs it more then anything they run to damn hot

Temperatures:
Motherboard 24 °C (75 °F)
CPU 17 °C (63 °F)
CPU #1 / Core #1 21 °C (70 °F)
CPU #1 / Core #2 31 °C (88 °F)
CPU #1 / Core #3 37 °C (99 °F)
CPU #1 / Core #4 24 °C (75 °F)
GPU Diode 33 °C (91 °F)
Seagate ST3500641AS 40 °C (104 °F)
WDC WD2500KS-00MJB0 38 °C (100 °F)
Seagate ST3750330AS 37 °C (99 °F)

The new block will correct the core temps as it came off of, and was designed for the Coolit Freezone Elite which Stan was gracious enough to send to me I should have it by mid week along with the new fans I purchased. :)

I will post some pictures as I start and complete this mod I think I will take your advice and cut a hole and add 120mm top fan to the mix!
as well as do the Plexiglas on the side door along with another 120mm intake that will blow against the MB should be a fun project!

Wow that is alot of work but will be cool to see.

In my old rig consisting of and Enermax Case with a Q9550 I cut a whole in the Motherboard side of the case and added a 80 mm fan. I tried it as bot exhaust and intake but it only made about 1 degree difference. was it worth it? Not for the temp difference but it was for the experience and the thrill of modding.

I'll see if I can find some pics.

You can see in pic 5 that i also cut a whole in the Motherboard tray for attaching Cooler brackets and in hopes of better cooling.
