Yeah, Im going to be using the Apogee GTZ and just cooling the 8300 to start with. Then in maybe a month when I get more money I want to cool my 2 HD 4870 because just running idle I burnt my fingers on the heatpipes. (ridicilous heat)

OP use only 2 drop of PTnuke in loop.

Generally any antifreeze is going to be pretty toxic. We use buckets of it at our hunt camp to kill mice. (stick ontop of the bucket, then walk on the stick for the food, stick and mouse falls in bucket and dies)

Just a note to say that Petra's does take orders from Canada (payment via Paypal) and that they are very fair for their shipping rates. Quoc charged me $3 to send up a GTZ bracket and some "gel-stuff" via USPS. Took 9 days to get to me, but what did I expect for $3? The order before that was a box full of goodies, and that was $12 shipping.

The only problem with this is , you have to knock the concentration down still.
Its 50/50 and running that through a W/C loop would lose out on some of the thermal properties.
The coolant that most Makers sell is Propolyne Glycol which is a G.R.A.S. rating (Generally Recognized As Safe).
Coolants with Ethylene Glycol , are not the best when it comes to WC loops, they have a high toxicity.

Gingerbee, if you were to use Water Wetter , make sure the rest of your coolant is Ethylene Glycol...as it doesn't mix well with Propolyne Glycol.

The best setup is two drops of Biocide (from either PT's or any Aquarium store) and something to prevent the issues with mixing metals in W/C loops.

Good Luck!
