Question on tubings

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking of buying either a Tygon A-60-G Norprene tubing or Feser Active UV tubing for my 1st liquid cooling set up. I'm leaning towards buying Norprene but wondered as to why only very few using Norprene than the other kind of tube. Are there disadvantages in using Norprene besides aesthetics?

I use Primochill Primoflex Pro LRT which is comparable to feser. I believe it's not as prone to kinks and is a little more pliable.

Me too. I like the look of Norprene than Feser. I know lots of people like something that looks fancy (UV reactive, etc.). I'm very minimalistic with my approach on how my first liquid cooling set up would look like. I want it to look like it's comercially made (like those black tubings used by Asetek on there CPU hybrid liquid coolers). I don't want it to be very flashy.

Just wondered if it's because Norprene is not that good or it just doesn't look so fancy to most people that's why only very few are using it.
