Default Radiator Temp Plz Help

The temp of my radiator creeps up sitting at idle w/o the a/c on past the 1/2 mark and goes to the bottom of the 3/4th

When the A/C is on driving around or idling it peaks almost all the way to overheating.

The A/C is cold at first then reaches past the 1/2 line and all of a sudden isnt cold and just pushes air and the radiator temp climbs.

My guess is a low radiator fluid.

Motor is pretty much stock with intercooler piping and mishimoto radiator.

Any suggestions?

Don't take this the wrong way, but radiator fluid isn't something that takes more than 1 minute to check, and not worth guessing. The suggestion is, that you should go check (with the engine off and not hot!) and let us know whether the fluid is actually low.
