The idea is to get the heat from the engine out through the radiators. The water wetter or engine ice helps to accomplish this by being a better conductor than glycol. If you feel less heat at the radiators under the exact same conditions - I would think the coolant is not doing as good of job. I don't think the difference would be enough to feel, however, and would guess that the thermostat may have been partially closed or it was just different conditions.

Just my $.02. I haven't had any overheating troubles yet so am using whatever came in it (50/50 water/glycol I guess).
