Durelene works great and doesn't appear to have any major issues but you aren't going to use it in a showcase pc.


I didnt miss any point- i havent supported any particular tubing-i have no agenda apart from finding tubing that works, my comments are my opinions/observations, not the gospel thumb.gif

We post our findings/opinions etc here in this thread with the distinct purpose of helping each other out, and hopefully finding tubing that does not have plasticizer problems.

You missed the point actually, in that there is NO perfectly crystal clear PVC type tubing-and my comment was tongue in cheek, hence the obviously silly ending vis a vis using crystal links instead-lighten up mate!

I also never said that Tygon is yellow, i commented on Tygon plasticizer free tubing also having been reported as having leeching problems-but if i had made such a comment, i am entitled to my opinion.

Finally, Durelene HAS been used in showcase rigs, as have MOST of the different types of tubing on the market-this thread isnt really geared towards the varying differences of tubing clarity, it addresses the plasticizer problem hence its title wink.gif

*Sigh* dont you just love people that ask and answer their own questions, or who make a comment, but refuse to have comments returned, -

Your comments were directly addressed to me and i replied-if you perceived my reply as looking for a disagreement, well its your opinion(albeit incorrect) and you are entitled to it

Im sorry that you have jumped to your own conclusions-but i wont reward negative behaviour by doing the same mate.

I shall wear my badge of shame on your ignore list with pride biggrin.gif

Aren't you the same guy that said "who runs the 35x at full speed"? Unlike the D5 that thing is loud. Even at full speed according to martins testing there is a larger difference than you are giving the D5s credit for. They each have their pros and cons.
That is my main point. Stop looking for stupid bull**** to argue about.

I guess that I should just take you word for it. rolleyes.gif
This is with the 35x2 at 100% power.

Oh and take it down a notch, man. Learn to have a discussion without getting all upset when someone questions your opinion.

That last line was a classic thumb.gif


Although not directed at me, I think that the above speaks for itself rolleyes.gif


Ok im drawing a line under this-this is way off topic-my apologies to the others for my part in this farce.

Ok, I'm currently building my new rig with Primochill LRT and I also noticed some plasticizing. It's almost instant. I was just leak testing and flushing the system and I took off one of the tubes and it was showing light traces of white already. It was retail packaged 10ft of it. This was with pure distilled water. I haven't put any additives in it yet. I might switch back to Feser if it gets really bad. Primochill states that only 5% of the people have this issue. I'm thinking 95%! This batch was bought 2 weeks ago from FrozenCPU so it should be fairly new but I have no idea how long it's been sitting on their shelf.

I had an older system with all Koolance stuff with Feser Active and there is no sign of plasticizer. None at all. I went about 1 year and all I see is just slight dying of the clear tube since I ran Koolance blue coolant but that was it.

swap the tubing before it's too late bro. been there, done that ... if you let it run like that (depositing those sediments) over time you will have that whitish-bluish goo everywhere inside tubing, rads and blocks. for some reason only reservoirs tend to stay clear of it. ... and then you will be flushing it, scrubbing numerous times .... not fun.
my Primo tubing was a UV Blue LRT from a 10ft retail package (got it from frozencpu around June this year), never again. Feser seems to work just fine.

How about XSPC PVC tubing? I'm using 7/16 fittings and Feser doesn't make my size frown.gif

I think i'm gonna switch to Duralene according to the posts. I hope it lasts.

I think you got that backwards, you use 7/16" tubing on 1/2" barbs. If you tried 1/2" tubing on 7/16" barbs it will leak.

XSPC uses standard 1/2'' barbs and 7/16'' tubing for a tight fit. 1/2'' tubing will fit the 1/2'' barbs just fine if he uses the hose clamps or zip ties to secure the hoses.
only problem would be if he got a kit which came with 7/16'' compression fittings and 7/16'' tubing ... that would be a different story ...
