Yeah, it's premixed and made especially for water-coolers.
Now I just need a little big bigger funnel for when I fill it up this time.
I may get that ready tomorrow as I got it from Amazon and it arrives tomorrow.
I ordered it from them as EKWB wanted $21+ just to ship a $12.99 item from Slovania to the U.S.
My video card should be here Monday or Tuesday.

Coolant arrived this morning.
Video card arrives Tuesday.
I splurged and got something I've been meaning to get.
It arrives Wednesday.

My RTX 2080 SUPER and pc cleaner arrived yesterday.
I tried 3DMark last night, but it obviously doesn't like the new video card and all tests give it a score of 0. I uninstalled 3DMark, restarted my pc and re-installed it and still get scores of 0.
I ran GeekBench, TessMark, Superposition and WWE 2K19 and the video card is fine and works in all of them.
I'll re-do and post all the new benchmarks here eventually.
I still have other things to do first.

What driver are you using?
I installed 431.60.
Considering I have a EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER XC GAMING with Precision X1 0.4.8.0 installed, I can't find the NVIDIA Auyo Overclock Utility.
Any ideas on where to look? s I've heard it's included with the driver.
Wolfenstein: Youngblood just finished installing.
Control is set to install in Epic Games upon it's release.
GRID is in the works. I just have to wait 1-3 days for EVGA to validate my Newegg video card invoice and then I'll get the game code yo unlock it.

VEGA just sent me my code for Grip: Combat Racing. so I'm downloading it as we speak.
Monday night I went through and uninstalled a bunch of games.

I just turned off Afterburner and uninstalled it. I then reinstalled Precision X1 restarted my pc and ran Time Spy.
Apparently 3DMark's update yesterday fixed Presion X1 working with it, as Time Spy showed a score of 17766 this time.
