ByeBye with that tubing it actually looks like on the right side of your lower rad the tubing is having that nasty orange coloring problem from tubing so I recommend new tubing or flushing it out and cheacking it to see if its all good. Rather be safe than sorry!

I just realized that, looks pretty bad actually. I would definitely check out to see the problem, did you mix metals or anything? Looks like some oxidation.

the problem is i havent replaced the water in it for about 2 years. I havent had problems with temps but i figure that once i replace the tubing and water it will drop the temps further. I definitely need to invest some money pronto. Im just really tight on budget right now. I liked the clear tubing with the red dye idea.
do you guys recommend red coolant water or just get a dye to make it red???
what items do you recommend? and where should i buy it? i buy most of my stuff from frozencpu

That's true as well. make sure all the blocks and rads are either copper or nickle plated copper. well technically that shouldn't do anything unless there is air in the system which can sit in rads and some blocks and pumps even. don't want air in there at all. if you do have one open your release value and drop the air pressure inside a bit.

When I did it, I bought red coolant but many people say the Mayhems dye is the best way to go.

yeah i figure its oxidation for having some air inside the tubing, the water in the res looks clean. I have a silver coil in there as well. But either way ill give that Mayhems dye a try. anywhere i can buy some nice tubing for cheap? you guys recommend?
