David:

In addition to the 2 areas you covered, coolant also raises the boiling point. Check the back of just about any container of coolant for this type of info.

The whole thing is catch-22 - you use too much and lose heat dissipating capabilities; you use too little and you lower the boiling point and invite corrosion.
