Tubing discoloration after 4 weeks? - Page 2

post #11 of 24
Thread Starter 
yes I just checked my res. It completely clean. So is the water. I don't see anything floating in it nor is it discolored.

When I took apart my loop, the tubing was all clouded, but my res and water were clear. What wasn't clear were my blocks and pump, might want to take a peek inside those and see what is going on in there. I still say flux, if it's more white than yellow.

Well I'll be flushing out my rad for sure. I might as well give the pump and blocks a scrub as well while I'm at it.

That and switching to primoflex will hopefully be the end of this discoloration

Make sure rad is clean and the same with the blocks.

Primochill Clear tubing and just Kill-Coil, nothing else is needed. I've been using that for over a year and no issues with clouding.

What would be the best way to get any plasticizers cleaned out of the rad and pump? My loop is getting cloud as well , planning to replace my tygon with primochill when I do some upgrades in a month or so.

Primochill clear tubing hasn't clouded for me yet. 5 months in now. Tygon just clouds no matter what.

I'll def be getting Primochill when I do my upgrades I hate the cloudiness of the tygon.

Can I just flush out my rad with a bunch of warm water to get the plastizers out or is that something that I wouldn't need to worry about?

You should take a look at my thread.
http://www.overclock.net/water-cooling/1138549-white-residue-tubing-pics.html

UV Blue Primochill LRT anti-microbial tubing w/ distilled & silver coil+barbs, yet there was still a buildup on my tubing.
Possibly the largest factor was not flushing rad properly before use.
