Which would be better & Why?


Right now im using Reverse Osmosis Water, no kill coil, algae prevention drops.
I'm switching to Distilled Water soon, and was wondering if a silver kill coil was really that necessary.
what kind of drops should i be using with the water? could i get them at petco? since they sell drops for fish tanks.
This is for the XSPC RASA 750 RX360 Kit.

Would a "real coolant" help me lower cpu temps more than distilled water?

Always have the res above the pump, you want gravity forcing the distilled water into the pump before you switch the pump on. A pump running dry will die pretty quickly, the rest of the loop order really doesn't matter.

My advice would be to use distilled water and a silver kill coil, no colouring/dye. If you want colour use coloured tubing.
