Does your room experience significant temp swings?

If not there should be no reason for condensation to form. This is usually only found when a loop is running much colder than the surrounding environment.

well, i have a crappy window in my room that lets cold air in when night hits and i have only seen it in the mornings or sometimes afternoon/night. i guess that's a possibility.

and no, slaymate, it's not a leak cause this is water, clear and clean. my fluid is green and tastes like crap

any thing i can do to stop it? like wrap the sides in foam or something.

Turn your PC off at night?

And quit tasting your fluids
