I've also heard there's flat tubing* which performs better, have you ever read about or tried it?

What make/model tubing IYE offers the best performance/resilience?

Larger rad. will be the very 1st upgrade in my next wave of tweaks.
Once my build's done, I'll be sure to PM you my completed beast
*obviously not entirely flat
Didn't miss them, its in the posts.

But no, flat tubing wont perform better, even if it does, round tubing performs so well that there are essentially no improvements to be made on that part of the loop.

As for the best brand, I personally don't give a damn, tube is tube, it all performs the same.

Though as I said before, primochill is the tubing most people recommend.

They were 'kinda' addressed indirectly via the other points, just not directly.

Was curious what make/model tubing you've been happiest with, but seemingly you don't have a 'favorite', np!
I think the flat tubing might be a figment of my imagination, was just checking if you'd seen it in use etc.

I totally understood the 1st point you made about tubing differences being negligible in the scheme of things.
But if it exists, one may as well try it! Don't think it does though

Yes primochil is referenced more than anything else, so it must at least be acceptable!
