Can anyone suggest me the other options for clear tubbing?? Coz i planed to use PrimoChill ICE - UV Electric Blue at my clear tubbing!!

this is the reply for the post above your head biggrin.gif and welcome to water cooler thumb.gif

you can try sidewinder]sidewindercomputers.com for tubing shipped to my location
25' Feet Subtotal: $11.25
Shipping: $8.12
Tax: $0.00
Total: $19.37

This is the best tubing for you buck! For all the testing i have done and still doing Durelene still holding up so good.IF you have a option not to use Primochill this will be great. return it and order some Durelene.

So I'm going to go for Duralene. I was planning on going with 7/16 by 5/8, but I can't find any Monsoon compression fittings that size. My options are to go up to 1/2 by 3/4 or down to 3/8 by 1/2.If I'm only cooling my CPU and no graphic cards, does it matter which way I go?

Dont use thin walled 1/16 inch tubing like 3/8 ID 1/2 OD, it will kink, it attaches less securely because of thin wall. 3/8 ID 5/8 OD (1/8 inch thick wall tubing...2 walls in diameter) is easiest to work with, bends tighter, looks nicer, and same temps within 0.1C as larger diameter 1/2 ID 3/4 OD.

Well I spoke too soon. I just found the fittings in 7/16 by 5/8. Should I go with the 3/8 by 5/8 anyhow?

Well I got the additive in from primochill, the directions say to add it to the system and let it run for 4 hours to 4 days, if there is sediment to drain and rinse the cooling system, and it is not guaranteed to resolve the issue.
After a little debate with my self and talking with my brother(Rx7racer) I decided to go ahead and add it to my loop, its been about 12 hours now and there IS a difference.
My tubing has cleared up allot, and I am noticing the water in my res is no longer clear but cloudy. I will need to rinse my cooling loop, but the tubing looks 100% better now.

Before Primochill sys scrubber
700

12 hours after sys scrubber you can see where there is still some build up in the tubing.

Is this additive a prototype product in testing or an actual product for sale?

It def seems to be a product in testing. Primochill sent it to me in response to my contacting them about my tubing clouding up.
I can not find any info about it doing a google search and they don't list it on there website. The bottle I received on 7-13-2012 had a manufacture date of 7-10-2012 printed on it.
I'm not sure what it is as the bottle doesn't say and the email I received just stated they were doing some testing, that the issue is not the tubing but another component in the system, and they would be willing to send me an additive to put in my loop to try and clean the tubing.

If I were you I would go easy with this additive, what I'm trying to say is you don't know what is it and you don't know the affect its going to cause with your hardware. I nice and weird at the same time Primochill start to step up with they product. BUT the weird parts is the additive has no label saying what is in it and how it react with some Metal, cooper, Plating components even Acrylic. Some how this additive looks like some corrosive product. It eat up the stuff inside the tube like you said above. BUT,How do you know if this additive + build up stuff won't get gunked in the rest of you hardware? Is your system is 24/7 up and running? How it affect when your system if OFF? It does affect? it is a lot things you don't know like all of us here.

is any way you can turn your cathode light off and use some bright light and take some clear shot of you tubing and Res?

PS: We just try to help and understand how we or they can solve this and help others here with the same problem. so please don't get me wrong. we only have hope thumb.gif
