Is Distilled water with or without additives the only non-commercial thing you can use in a LCS? I'm asking because I heard if you use nothing but 95% isopropyl alcohol in the whole system it's better because of it's low viscosity and thermal capacity (freezes @ -110 F and boils lower then water). It's also anti corrosive and non-conductive. Keep it air tight and you won't have to worry about fumes.

Questions, comments, or ideas?

Don't use water.. Get Feser One.

Feser One - the only coolant you will ever need!

Perfecting the way you cool your system, safely and paving the way to the future.

Do not mix this coolant with any other aftermarket additives, this may compromise the non conductive formula.

Do not mix colours in this coolant, if any extra UV additive needs to be added use Feser One or Feser View to keep conductivity levels down.

If used for long periods of time the UV properties of this coolant will naturally fade, you can use Feser View UV Dye to fix this.

Do not mix different colour Feser One coolants together, chemical reactions can occur.

No other additives are needed, we have 4 anti corrosives inside!

Regular water changes are advised (maximum 1 year).

Depending on your hose size, type and wall thickness, Feser One may react differently under uv light in different cooling systems.

We have tested this product as replacement coolant in every leading manufacturers watercooling system with great results!

Corrosion protection
For longer lifetime of your system ...

Our priority for the liquids is to improve the corrosion protection. Different manufacturers of liquid cooling systems use different metals in their systems. To protect all these kinds of metals we developed a cooling agent, which protects the metals COPPER, ALUMINIUM, BRASS and NICKEL.

The characteristic is here with the inhibitors, which prevents the corrosion of all metal parts in the cooling circuit at the same time.

By this new development it is compatible with each system.
UV reactive
And it glows ...

By the additive of different coloring materials the liquid gets the appropriate color. With addition of UV active materials, so-called artificial tracers, the liquid begins to glow when ultraviolet light hits the material in the liquid.

For theses effects you only need a CCFL / UV Cold Cathode light tube which is already on the market and available from different third party manufacturers (e.g. Sharkoon, Revoltec, etc.).
Quality Control - Made in Germany
The Liquids are manufactured and supervised in Germany in our production hall. All necessary components for the liquids are manufactured in Germany. In co-operation with specialists for corrosion protection at the professional school S?dwestfalen / Germany, we developed this liquids particularly for PC water cooling systems. The liquids are examined each month for its consistence and submitted of different long term test in cooling systems. Thus we always ensure a safe and optimal product.
In the laboratory for corrosion protection technology we can develop the liquid permanently further and adapt new standards.

It may be anti corrosive and anti conductive but what about cooling properties?

Also, what about using 95% isopropyl alcohol in the system?

A friend of mine uses over-the-shelf radiator fluid in his LCS, is this wise? It cools very well but for obvious reasons I'm a little skeptical of it in this setting.
