Red face Liquid Cooling help

Hi everyone,
i bought a liquid cooling computer about 2-3 months ago...and im still confused on how my computer works... so before i go here are my specs


Asus P5n-D nForce 750i Sli Chipset w/ DDR 2

Titan A88 Xtreme Liquid Cooling Gaming 420W case w/ full side Panel Reservior

2 Quad Core 2.83 GHz

4 Gigs of ram

Geforece 9800 GTX+ 1GB 16x PCI Express (NVIDIA)

Windows 64-bit Home Premium


ok here are my questions....if you did some research on my Case its a Side Panel Resivour and what i wanna know is that....if i can mix Liquids with the other Liquid stuff thats already in my Resivour Panel and if i cant mix them....how do i flush it out...cause i cant imagane just flipping my computer upside down to do it.....so basically my question is can i mix two different kinds of liquid gels (not Special Liquid to Distalled water, But Special Liquid to Special Liquid(meaning different kind of liquid company names))

and my second question is that...my computer will over heat sometimes...and since its a liquid cooling system...the moment it goes over 40 degrees...it starts beeping...so i check my computer to make sure...nothings wrong....also when i start my computer it will start out with a decent 37.7 Degrees but the longer I seem to have it on the higher Tempature it will get...it just gradually gets hotter and hotter.....the room im in is also very small...and i usally dont open the doors or windows for wind curculation...do u think that it will have something to do with it...and the other day i thought it was cause mabe i needed to dust out the inside of my computer...and i did and it still tends to beep...


So if anyone can help me with these two problems it will be gratually appercated

I honestly don't know anything about liquid cooling. I think it's unnecessary for 95% of the people that do it. I found a video for you.

How many people get to say, "Dude, my case is as efficient as your water cooling is!"?

I know I do.

Depends on what it is. All you really need is Distilled water and a bottle of PT Nuke or Killcoils. They keep things from growing in your loop. Personally, I'd stay away from any UV coloring or anything. I've seen them get gross after a while.

IF you want UV, get UV tubing.
