Water Cooling - Cooling Agents?

Ive read somewhere about products such as water wetter can reduce water temps even further by upto 30F, is this true and has anyone tried such a product?

Cheers

In Racing engines I have seen up to a 20 deg. reduction in temps with straight water and a pint of water wetter. In my PC's H2o system I saw a 1-2 deg. reduction in temps with distilled water and 2 oz. water wetter.
From what I have seen results vary from system to system with some claiming no reduction in temps at all.

WW works.. No doubt. Definitely worth a shot, just don't over do it. Use the appropriate amount for the volume of water you are running. IE: don't run a WaterWetter cooled setup, verses an H2O cooled setup

Alot of little things add up to a big result

the ideal liquid(but dangerous) would be mercury because it has Exothermic(or endothermic, i forget) properties which means by being a metal it absorbs heat(slightly). Some people say Anti-Freeze works well too
