So, about a month or two ago I finished my build. This is the first time I've done my own custom water cooling loop. For some unknown reason I decided to stay up until 3 in the morning to finish my build. Finally completing my build I realized I had used all my water for flushing my radiator and tubing. A short thought process led me to using straight vehicle radiator fluid for my cooling loop.
I ran it like this for a few months with no problems at all. About a week ago I switched back to water after reading some articles on the interwebs suggesting that I'm a moron for using radiator fluid even in a worst case scenario. However, my computer is now running on average 3c hotter on water than with radiator fluid.
Now, 3c is minimal for the setup I am running as my OC is only to 4.8, but I may decide to push a little higher later on.
I guess my question is; Is radiator fluid that bad to use for a water cooling loop? Is there a suggested liquid over water?
Thanks for any help/advice suggestions.
