Watercooling - Res Plugs Red Tags: Heatsinks Water Cooling Silver Overclocking Last response: January 23, 2011 5:42 PM in Overclocking Share Slipperss January 22, 2011 7:51:06 AM So i noticed that my plugs in my resevior are colored red, normally being silver. Why is this? I could imagine it would either be the biocide or algeas, anyone who can help? Also my waterflow fin is running slow, seems like some white/ivory colored stuff has put itself between the fin and the little res window. I used demineralized water, no tap water ofcourse.

Cheapest solution is to add a couple ounces of Antifreeze For a car radiator. or you could buy some of the more expensive additives. rubix_1011 a c 324 K Overclocking January 22, 2011 9:49:21 PM What kind of plugs are they? I'd almost say its rust or some kind of corrosion without knowing many more details. Drain your loop and clean it.
