In stock 3.7Ghz i currently have 43oC in normal use (web.youtube etc) which is very high..What can i do ?

I cant even use Kill Coil or stuff like that since its an alu rad and most likely it will tear it apart with corrosion.
I used to have a triton and noticed water levels dropping as well, I was told that it was due to evaporation through the tubing but I dont really know about that. I checked constantly for leaks and there were none anywhere for the few months that I used it. It never got to the point where the pump was pulling in air like yours but I was told by Raijintek via facebook to top it off with distilled water and that worked just fine for me.
I dunno about yours but mine had a noticeable plastic/chemical smell to it (especially the first few weeks) until I drained all the stock fluid and changed the tubing as recommened by someone somewhere (I forget). I was told the tubing is rather low quality and leaches plasticizers like crazy. I dunno if it was the tubing or the fluid at fault but changing them both seemed to help the smell at least but I did not keep it long enough to see if it helped the liquid level dropping. I used Ek-Ekollant EVO ( http://www.performance-pcs.com/ek-ekoolant-evo-clear-concentrate-100ml.html
) as my replacement coolant
