Damn that sucks. I only guessed dying because i know how much better it looks to be able to see the blue encased in clear and not just blue.

I got my tubing from frozen cpu and they cut it to length so i didnt get a retail package, just 14ft from a huge spool probably.

It's not the dye. If it was, then why do people do not use dye in this thread also experience the same issue?

And why would the dye stain a cloudy colored film anyway? If anything, it would just make the tubing blue and only be noticeable when drained.

Have you actually taken your loop apart to see the inside of the tubing? I'm not second guessing you, but you may have a thin film that can't be readily seen until your tubing is taken off the fitting.


*** QUESTION FOR ALL ***

How many of you, who DO have this problem, happen to also have Koolance bay reservoirs? I'm trying to find some other kind of commonality between everyone's setup.

In the post above yours i kind of retracted my statement but yes u are probably right.

Yea iv taken it apart a few times when changing my mobo and cpu last week and rearanging a few tubes. Ill grab a pic but looking at one of the tubes i used (was to short for my new mobo) loojs the way it did when i got it. No clouding or plasticizer

Here's my clear Primochill tubing after 2 weeks. I was running distilled water and PT Nuke PHN mixed precisely according to instructions on the bottle. EK Acetal+EN blocks, MCP655, XSPC RX360 rad, XSPC Compression fittings, and Bitspower 150mm tube reservoir. Water in the reservoir was still crystal clear.

Counterfeit Primochill tubing? With all the lamptron counterfits that ppc and fozencpu are selling I wouldn't be surprised.

Well, I don't have that problem, but I am running a Koolance TNK-501 bay res with primochill LRT UV Blue tubing and Koolance blue coolant. There is a slight plasticizer haze on the inside of the tubing, but nothing anywhere close to the pics in this thread. System has been running 24x7 since about last October. Took it completely apart once about two weeks ago for maintenance - very little haze, and thankfully zero buildup or corrosion in the blocks and rad.

I got mine from amazon, which is sold by ModderSmart/Tyler Industries which, according to an ocn member who's "in the industry" makes Primochill tube.



My inexpensive Watts tube from Home Depot is holding strong. I'm planning a new bigger build and I'm going to pick up a roll of 20' Watts 3/8x1/2 clear tube for $6 thumb.gifbiggrin.giftongue.gif for this new build.

That guy works for koolertek (which is apparently a family owned business...?) and they carry a decent amount of wc supplies so hes quite right about being in the industry.

I did a little digging -

If you look under the amazon page it'll say tyler direct and moddersmart and if you visit the primochill official website it saids "Copyright 2002-2012 - PrimoChill | Tyler Industries Company".

Likewise I'm not going to touch primochill tubing until this issue gets resolved like the ek incident, just going to hunt down some alternatives such as tygon for my upcoming build instead.

I've got 3 meters of Primochill LRT pro UV blue and 2 meters of Masterkleer UV blue.
Guess it is the perfect chance to test it!
Will use primochill first and see what happens biggrin.gif

Anyways, that guy that got "more than 8 years experience with water cooling" summed up real nice.
We should be getting platicizer-free tubing instead of this ****e that will eventually "bleed" plasticizer into the loop redface.gif

It is, nevertheless, interesting to see why is it that some tubing accumulate plasticizer faster than others smile.gif
