PrimoChill ICE performs as advertised, with a noticeably lower temperature in our test system. Given the slick oily feel, and the fact that PrimoChill ICE lived up to the claims regarding lower temperatures, I am inclined to believe that it will also live up to the claims of longer pump life and reduced internal build up in any water cooling system. - The Review

OK I took a small plastic cup which was non conductive and filled it with the PrimoChill ICE and then dropped the leads form my Fluke 77 meter in it. Making sure they were not touching each other or the sides of the plastic contain. I wanted to get pictures but my camera batteries died. Anyway with the PrimoChill ICE in the cup I got an ohm reading of 2.689. I then did the same test with some distilled water and got a reading of .689. From this simple test the PrimoChill ICE does seem to be somewhat conductive but not as conductive as distilled water.

So with a reading of 2.69 (rounding) I would expect that while it might not conduct well, it could still cause some damage based on what got hit with a spill.
Low voltage non-sensitive items might survive but others I would think would not fair nearly as well.
Too Bad ... maybe they can fix the issue (unlikely)
Has anyone tried this same test with Fuid XP or the MCT family of products?
Be interesting to see if Any of the products are really non-conductive..
I have a partial bottle of Fuid XP I'll test ( once I find my meter)
