I think that you are missing the point of the photos, the photos have been posted as proof of the clarity of the tubes after extended use-the fact that they(the letters) are visible is good, and they have been left on the tube for the expressed purpose of gauging tube clarity wink.gif

You will not be able to fully tell till you strip down your rig.

I know but when I had my R-3603, I press the tubing and it had so much "white gunk" inside it start snowing in my reservoir (imagine my CPU block). It was just like an approximation of the fact. But you are right that I will need to break my loop to see, unfortunately frown.gif

Anyway, it is good to know that your Feser tubing aren't clouding.

Oh alright, but do you know if nail polish remove will get rid of those letters? I'm going to air cool my new computer build at first before I put everything under water. My board has to prove it's reliabilty before I even start with chipset/VRM blocks!

Much appreciated! smile.gif

Try plain old rubbing alcohol -im not sure about nail polish remover because that's mostly acetone (maybe they are from the same family idk smile.gif)
But rubbing alcohol does work, dab a bit onto a cotton bud/ q tip and gently rub on the lettering till it comes off thumb.gif

Thank you for that info, but I just had a thought about using MDPC-X sleeving over the tubing as I can't stand clear tubing! It must be a pain to sleeve tubing..?

Sleeving, no, not messing it up with the fittings, that is another story. I've never done it, but have read some saying it was super hard others said it was easy. I'm guessing it has a lot to do with how tight the fittings have to be to hold the tubing.

Why don't you have a look at neoprene tubing -ok its only one colour but its a change:

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/10487/ex-tub-647/Tygon_A-60-G_Norprene_12_ID_34_OD_-_Industrial_Grade_Thermoplastic_Elastomer_Tubing.html?tl=g30c99s1614

Try feser coloured tubing, or use a few drops of dye in your loop with Durelene clear tubing-trust me it changes the whole look of the tubing.

or

This is an old link but the information is still pertinent:
