Distilled water is "empty" water, after a while it will leach ions off your hardware and become able to conduct electricity.

Oil is the best thing here. Mainly mineral oil.

You need distilled water when cooling a computer. Apparently you guys didn't read my post in which I was saying how automotive antifreeze won't work to cool computers because it's water that actually does the cooling in a car. Optical then said to use distilled water to which I said in a car it doesn't matter if you use distilled water at all for cooling a car because minerals don't make a difference.
