I think they use Swagelok brand fitting.

All i want to know is since i'm using Primochill tubing right now, will this affect temps?
What is the worse that can happen?
Is there a way to stop this?
post #1544 of 3087
Will this affect temps?
Over time, yes. if you have plasticiser building up in your block

What is the worse that can happen?
Overheat, less flow, harder on the pump, bad looking.

Is there a way to stop this?
Primochill is offering a "Scrubber". I don't know if it is safe for copper / nickel / acrylic / etc.
You can find some cheap Durelene tubing who seem to have less plasticiser leak.

Hope I help .

Some people on this thread have contact promchill about the issue and receive that "Scrubber".

You can look here (I think it is a good post to learn about)

In my own opinions, I won't consider the scrubber because we don't know what are the effect on other components and we don't know what is in that solution.

I fully agree with @Lee17 about the scrubber!
I am about to use Sysclean[=http://specialtech.co.uk/spshop/customer/SysClean-Watercooling-High-Power-Limescale-Remover--Cleaning-Fluid--50ml-pid-5741.html][/], that seems to do the same job with the scrubber BUT...
a. it is very strong and i will use it only for my MORA3 rad in 1:10 ratio
b. I will use baking soda afterwards (as Mick from Mayhems and the guys from specialtech recommend) to neutralize (pH-wise) the rad

I would not use neither primochill scruber nor the sysclean to clean my entire loop with all these metals, nickel, brass, copper, chrome etc...

Just Google "steampunk water cooling" Images.
post #1549 of 3087
If it was already mentioned here I might have missed it - certainly possible after going through over 1500 posts in one sitting...

Plasticizer Rumor Debunked

Naturally, after finally picking up some Black LRT for my system, and then stumbling upon this thread (after receiving it, of course)... imagine my relief at seeing this.

... And then imagine that relief dissolving like so much anti-microbial in water once I actually read it... no actual evidence, images, etc... just a vague reference to doing significant research on different loop components. Apparently 'debunking' isn't what it used to be back in 'my day' - which wasn't all that long ago I thought.

So although there's no problem, and never has been with their tubing... they've got two solutions to the problem anyway. And one of them is A NEW KIND OF TUBING... due out next month. More interesting to me, since the rest is largely conjecture on their part, is that they make clear assurances that the manufacturing process, materials, etc... have not changed at all during the past 5 years.

I might have missed it, but has someone that had problem with new production runs of tube ever try some from an old batch? Or as importantly, would someone that is currently running an old batch with no problems whatsoever, be willing to swap out a new batch to confirm if there is a difference? Just curious... I'll probably be running something different just to be safe (after all... wasting $25 worth of tubing to potentially save $800 worth of everything else seems like a no brainer). biggrin.gif

LOL, yeah, we've been through that so called debunking ... no problem! and yet 2 solutions to non-existent problem touching less than 5% of customers (but how if there was no problem in first place?) ... and a new model of tubing to fix issues ... that never existed LOL! Primochill takes us surely for half-brained idiots... stay away from the brand if you love your precious loop components ... I am yet about to open my Raystorm CPU block for tooth brush scrubbing, but hopefully it's clean after numerous flushes (including their Scrubber which loosened 2 small blobs of blue gel in it, later on flushed out under hot tap water) ... Primochill is as good for me as as they never existed. what company are we talking about, again? Primo-what? never heard of them, but oh wait, I think that's the company that released that ugly bad cheap & dangerous tubing and lied to customers for over a year about it and everybody stopped buying their tubing, so they peacefully went bankrupt.
