RO water w/ no additives. It has been the only thing I've used in the past 4-5 years. My very first build was the only time I added anything to the loop. And it was highlighter.

I use swiftech HydrX as recommended by Coolit for my Boreas 12 since I've added a GPU block and changed the CPU block to a HK- unavoidably a mixed metal loop with those boreas 12s and Coolit says that HydrX suppresses any corrosion. Is the Daz protectant a similar formula? If so I'll switch.
