Direct Die Cooling

I am planning on building a direct die water cooler and I was very impressed with what Kat did. I have a few questions. What is the best ratio of distilled water to antifreeze, how should I seal the water block and cpu, and just for fun what color should I make my water: Red, Green, or Blue. Also, any general knowledge on the subject would be appreciated.

You should be able to get it at any plastics supplier. Some home improvement or hobby centers will have it also. I got the plexi I used from Lowe's.

Water Chiller goodness. We're renovating our house right now and we need to purchase a refrigerator. lucky me, the one we're looking at comes with a free wine chiller that plugs into the wall socket. My parents say that if we get that fridge, I get the chiller. I'm gonna mod it and hook it into the system by either having the water go through another homemade radiator inside of it or attach the cooling component to the radiator.
