Hi all!
I am the owner of a new liquid cooler MSI MAG Coreliquid 360R. What is used as a coolant in it? What happens if a leak occurs? There is an expensive graphics card directly under the water block of this system. Is it in danger?
Thank you!

Hi
I am certain it uses non conductive liquid so no damage should be done. But for more information yoi should reach out to the manufacturer >>How to contact MSI.<<

Thank you Nichrome for your help. Here the answer of MSI:

"The liquid is conductive, if the leak is serious, it may affect other device, please confirm that there is no problem after installing the cooler. Generally speaking, it will not leak unless the cooler is damaged, but please also pay attention to the cooler when you using the PC. Thanks!"

SO... It is a big question to use or not devices like that MSI MAG Coreliquid 360R.
Unfortunately, I thought about this after the purchase. Now I'm just sure that any off-the-shelf water cooling system has the same problem as mine.

In my opinion, making cooling devices that can potentially damage the computer and arrange a short circuit is simply stupid. Use of a non-conductive coolant could eliminate these problem at all. I am shocked by this news.

Not really sure if the support guy's post is to be taken serious. I'm not aware of any aio manufacturer using a conductive coolant and MSI does not manufacturer these units themselves as far as I know.

That doesn't sound right. As @flobelix mentioned, all AiO cooler manufacturers use non conductive liquid.
I'll see if I can get more info about it...

I'll say more guys. Here the video about Gamer Storm Captain liquid cooler.
. By one word - coolant is conductive. Its shown by experimental way. Result is a short circuit and smoke

Sadly, I don't speak russian which makes following the video pretty difficult at best.

Either way, I would be really surprised if MSI (and by effect, Coolermaster) are using a conductive liquid in their coolers. I can't see that ending well for anyone involved.

In that video you can turn subtitles on (there will be only russian) then press settings, then press arrow > after russian, press translate and pick english.
everything is clear enough by that way

Hi
Unfortunately what customer support told is true. The mixture used is conductive.

So, congratulations to all of us - water cooling owners. I will choose a tower cooler for the CPU. And let the manufacturers of this [***CENSORED***] use these so-called super duper water coolers

I've no issues with multiple liquid coolers in my systems, where 1 is also a DIY.
Leaks from AIO coolers are very rare, and if there is a leak then most commonly it's a user mistake (i.e. twisting tubes when there's no need or having a kink), or it's faulty out of factory. But factory fault is something you spot immediately.
Anyway, that's all from me. Conductivity confirmed.
