Just looked at your sig rig (R3C0NF1GUR3D)... nearly identical to what I've picked up to put in this build (with the exception of GPU - but that was a budgetary choice mostly as I already had one of the 7970's I'm putting in it). Very nice.

Yeah OK Primochill... If they think anyone is going to buy that they are dead wrong. "There's nothing wrong with our tubing, but if you think something was wrong just buy our new stuff!" Absolute garbage...
This is what my Blue LRT looks like after a month:

And now they want me to buy more Primochill junk? I don't know about you but they've completely lost my business. Having a defective product is one thing, but not admitting that there is a problem and even saying that they KNOW there is not a problem without providing any evidence whatsoever is BS.

I completely agree... I guess in that sense I'm lucky - they just missed out on getting my business... or at least any more of it. If I can't return/exchange the tubing I purchased I'll just have to ebay it and/or write it off. Better to regret the purchase than regret not making a better decision later on when I'm spending hours cleaning gunk out of my blocks - especially since this will be my first custom loop build... there's enough variables and conflicting information regarding KC's, additives, components, etc. Don't feel the need to willingly add another question mark to the process. smile.gif

Just wish I'd have found this thread a little earlier... but to be fair I considered the tubing to be of so little importance that I only really did in-depth research on the rads, res, blocks, and fittings... thought there wasn't a reason to bother researching tubing. doh.gif

Having a defective product is one thing, but not admitting that there is a problem and even saying that they KNOW there is not a problem without providing any evidence whatsoever is BS.

Seems to me that I have seen this bit of logic used in the past and it worked out so well for EK that they lost a good portion of their Dedicated customer base. I'm not going to blame it all one PrimoChill but their logic is flawed. Especially when they've sent "Scrubber" to a few/couple of PC owners in this thread. Why did/are they sending the stuff to their customers if there is no problem? thinking.gif

LOL at drain pumps smile.gif I actually tried 2 and unless I loosen one of fittings upstream there is no force in hell to vacuum the water out ... and I tried strong automotive (hand operated) vacuum pumps wink.gif
now I usually wrap paper towels around one of my cpu block fittings and loosen it a bit to allow air in and then most of water flows out like crazy at bottom drain, otherwise I can drain only reservoir and GPU by opening the drain port (and res fill port of course) ... that being said, I actually suspect some clog in my cpu block, so I will be opening it up soon for inspection.

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

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.

As a fellow member of the mere 5% (heavy sarcasm) of customers who are currently dissatisfied with primochill's products, and their blatant INSULT of a damage control job (change your marketing staff Primochill-that piece had more holes in it than swiss cheese lol), i am glad that the koolade has not been consumed, and i hope that Brian over at Primochill has a read of this thread :http://www.overclock.net/t/915966/please-read-before-purchasing-ek-nickel-plated-blocks-update-revised-plating-info.

'Those that do not read or learn history are doomed to repeat it'

No one is trying to do a hatchet job on Primochill. we just want a proper working product and a little bit of respect, instead of taking us for mono celled organisms-sending that 'paid for' sponsored rig builder to spout baseless BS was also a stupid move, EK tried that as well with the same rig builder, see how far that got them. Imagine selling your integrity for a few pieces of hose and some WC gear, how sad.

Keep the feedback and info coming people, its the only way that the consumer can fight back nowadays thumb.gif
