alcohol at the pharmacy?
you're kidding right?
do you have prices of that?

so if I'm getting it right :
you can buy methanol ?? / ethanol ?? at the pharmacy?

just another question:
what's the freezing point of that kind of alcohol?

ow now you're asking me something

Don't remeber what it costed me and howmuch it is exactly but I think it's about 30-40 cl at about 10-12

dno if it's methanol, ethanol or ...

all I know is that it's your everyday desinfecting alcohol and it's supposed to be close to 100% pure alcohol with something in it so you wouldn't (couldn't?) drink it. I just use it to clean proc's and coolers ...

think i've seen somebody roll it up the evap
but take something to put in the middle
or just take a few meters of copper and roll it together in a reservoir but you need a torch then :s
and some coolant and few other material

try to find some antifreeze that works with water or just use 100% (if your pump can handle that).
Maybe you can put somethin in your res so you won't need that much water (something that isolates, like 'piepschuim')

yeah, got that from a XS member too ...
it's all so expensive a poor student you know

I'm gonna see what I can do ...
that anti-freeze I used was -26 certified ... if you didn't mix with water, kind of expensive tho to buy again, gonna look for some cheaper stuff
thx already guys
