Should I Go Clear Tubing? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
I just think, from a design perspective, that if you were to use white it would draw your attention to the watercooling. The rest of the machine people can look around in and see, but this will give SOMETHING in your build the ability to really stand out.

Aesthetically, solid color tubing is much better. I prefer clear (using tygon tubing) just so I can keep an eye on algae content, I am a bit paranoid even after adding too much PT nuke. I add some dye just to add some life, my tubes cloud up if I leave it clear. Doesn't much matter what dye I add, always turns out orange in the reservoir and pink in the tubes for some reason...... have tried a pink and orange dye (hoped the opposite would happen if I did a pink)
