it's usually distilled water with an additive (WaterWatter, antifreeze, ...) to prevent corrosion and alges

The only stupid question is the unasked question. I've ran my system without distilled water, however; it's recommended because of the absence of electrolytes. If the water were to spill, or leak the distilling process would have removed those conductive elements, preventing a short-circuit.

Here's what happened to a system over at Dan's Data. See if you can figure out why he basically turned his water-block into a battery; http://www.dansdata.com/burning.htm
