the water inside a d.i.y water cooler is technically only distilled water with some coolant in it so i'd say due to the chimicals inside the coolant its no its not safe to consume then again who in there right mind would

as for closed water loops i think its just 100% coolant cause i broke a closed water loop before and it smelt like strong anti freeze after it dried up it was a sticky substance

You know watercooling =/= actual water right?

It does when you're like the majority of people that use water cooling and just use distilled water.

No, you better don't. If it is just distilled water, you are fine. However, many coolant are mixed with other chemicals to make them more effective, such as ethylene/propylene glycol. Those things will **** you up. Not to mention whatever coloring they put in.

Ethylene glycol is an antifreeze, plain water is actually a more effective coolant. In a car's coolant system, for example, it's recommended to run straight water during the warmer months of the year, and to mix water and ethylene glycol during the colder months, depending on how low the temperature can get. There's no reason to run ethylene glycol in a computer's water cooling loop unless the computer is regularly exposed to sub-zero temperatures.

The liquid inside our Hydro Series CPU coolers is a mixture of distilled water with Propylene Glycol added to prevent corrosion and organic build-up.

It might be different for other closed loop coolers, but I'd assume it's probably similar with most.
