Theoretical Liquid Cooling Question

So, completely theoretically, could one create a liquid cooling system that uses mountain dew as coolant? What about mountain dew mixed with other things?

    Your friend is an idiot.
  2. Yes, yes you could. I'm running ethanol in my loop right now. You'd have to let the Dew go fully flat to avoid bubbling and you might have some problems with corrosion and algae/bacteria. Add some anti-corrosive, use the same metal for all the components, and definitely add a biocide since it's very sugary and prone to bacteria. Consider a diet version as it has less sugar.
  3. And remind me again why you'd be willing to fork over hundreds on liquid cooling but skimp out on the actual liquid coolant?

    This was just a theoretical Question, would never actually do this.

    Out of curiosity, why not for long?
  8. Best answer
    because most food liquids will start to change the state in one way or another.
    some may become less liquid -like milk.
    some will go through separation of ingredients - food color, sugar etc. that staff will block the microfins
    and everything with some form of sugar will have a bacteria grow which again blocks the flow.
  9. Also, it's gonna smell reeal bad depending on what you're using
