Default Water cooling.

Right now I'm filling my water cooler up with deionized water. Are there any chemicals/waters I could use that would make my CPU cooler?

Well...you can add something like this coolant additive that supposedly helps, but who knows how much it really does:

Lol, I doubt liquid nitrogen would flow through PVC tubes very well.

liquid nitrogen once it heats up a tiny bit turns strait to gas so one u need an open system (copper tube on cpu) and also u have to keep refilling it
dam i forgot the name but u can by it at any auto store
its a special type of cooling fluid conducts heat a lot better then water
it was like red somthing

You want to add some kind of water cooling liquid which will delay the growth of bacteria and might also help a little with temps. Usually this additive comes with a water cooling kit.

es I think your talking about anti freeze.

I guess i'll point out you don't want to put anti freeze in your water cooling system. Unless of course your running your computer outside for the winter.
