why use blue??? Plenty of other colors that are easier to get. Most NAPAs have pentosin G48 these days. BMW also offers it. It is G-48 that youre looking for..

BMW and VW use a "blue" coolant, G-48. Honda uses a blue-green 50/50 premix available in quarts. I would run Sierra or Prestone Low-Tox, just in case you spring a leak and the risk of poisoning a pet(if you have one) or others is minuscule.

Where can I buy blue coolant? It will be used for my computers water cooling setup.
Gigabyte case by chance?
Coolermaster Centurion 5 case w/blue front panel.

Cummins dealers sell blue coolant. But I think you'd better go with that newegg link. I suspect that CPU coolant isn't really the same as automotive coolant. And, FYI, coolant in automotive applications can not be identified SOLELY by color. It's a good place to start- but you have to look at color and application (e.g. there are MULTIPLE types of red/pink/orange coolant).
