Do I need to put new water in my water cooling system?

So i have heard that some water cooling systems do need new water in them every 6 months, and i have also heard that some never need to have the water replaced, so i have no idea of what brand/kind of water cooling system i have because it has no branding or anything, i got my computer custom built from ibuypower so it was professionally installed and stuff, so anyway here is a picture of it and maybe you guys can tell what i need to do, http://i.imgur.com/qxlPpCR.jpg

It looks like even if i wanted to replace the water its not built to open up, so yeah can any of you guys tell me what kind it is.


Thanks for reading this~

Your system should of come with some kind of manual from ibuypower. If not I would contact them and find out what they recommend to use to replace the fluid and how often.

This appears to be a 'closed-loop' type cooler, no opening for adding fluid. The medium inside is formulated to prevent any growth of algae. No Maintenance.

Looks like a sealed unit to me also, but even they degrade after time. What are your temps at idle and at full load ?

Strange there is no trademark on the waterblock.

My temps at idle are 40C, Full load 57C


Any idea of how long it takes them to degrade?

If that is a closed loop system, then no......there pretty much isn't anything to be done to it. If there seems to be a fill/drain hole in the radiator, you may be able to flush it and refill it. Although I don't know how you would find out how much to put in it and if there is a certain type. If it is still doing it's job, I'd leave it be.
