I would find where the leak is coming from for sure, but there's only a couple of spots that it could be. Either the connections going in/out of the cooler, or the cooler itself. I'm guessing though, since I have no perspective on where I'm looking, but I see that drip hanging in the background, which I assume to be the same fluid. If it's the connections, try some teflon wrap to see if it fixes it. If it's the cooler, buy a 6.0 cooler as a replacement.
