I might be more inclined to be charitable if they had done something to earn the benefit of the doubt, but, they have not.

Well you know who's going to get my hard earned money, the first company that fix this discoloration and/or plasticizer problem and not one that immediately blames the customer!

Have been using XSPC tubing for a while with zero issues. Have checked them around 2 weeks ago, after a period of 6 months and they are still clean inside. This is black tubing BTW.

They're "immediately blaming the customer" because nothing definitively points to the tubing as the problem. Vendors are selling the same tubing they've always sold; some batches are new, others are old. The tubing hasn't changed; something else has, which is causing all the clouding.

The tubing definitely has changed. I use two differerent batches on Primoflex in my loop. One set turns brown, the other does not.

That's not true, I have friends that have been using the same radiators, reservoirs and pumps for years and if anything changed it was the nickel water blocks when upgrading, so unless someone wants to start blaming the water blocks, come-on give a break.rolleyes.gif

A link or source where your getting this information...?

Apparently NO tubing is safe. PrimoChill, Masterkleer, Tygon, it all seems to be affected.

Well, amongst the debacles going on in the water thread, I didn't get any feedback on my tube dilemma biggrin.gif, so I'll ask here if you guys don't mind smile.gif

Re:


Here's the tube Primochill sent me. I haven't gotten word from them or my contacts if this is nda stuff but I don't have the official name. I just call it "Pearl" or "Metallic" blue. On the right is the UV Blue from them to compare. I'm using "electric blue" paracord to accent my psu sleeved cables and with the blue led R4s. I'm really leaning on this new blue tube to go into my next build, but the uv blue would look nice as well. What do you guys think?
