b)What mayhem would you recommend to achieve a nice thick red?
c)Do I have to flush/clean my system that currently have silver coil and water?
d)Will new coolant be just as protective?
Dyes aren't usually the issue, its rad flux and plasticizer that gunk up the loop. You can use pastel, x1, and/or dye to get whatever red you're looking for.
It's always a good idea to flush your system between coolants and inspect for and damage or buildup. If everything looks good you shouldn't have any issues. If you see a lot of gunk in your blocks or corrosion you'll want to open the blocks and clean them thoroughly and just make sure they aren't damaged.
If you use pastel or x1, they have biocide/anti corrosion added into them so you won't need the coil.

Pretty much, I did this with x1 clear for a friends build and it ended up looking like white aurora. Went really well with the RGB lighting I put in the case.
