Here are the pics off before and after.
Before when the loop was first built
After 6 days off running
haere are the tubes after replacing them with the left over Primoflex LRT 1/2 ID X 3/4 OD
After replacing the tubes and filling it with the same distilled water and mayhems Pastelle Red dye the tubes have been coated again.
Replaced tubes on the 10/01/2012 and the tubes have clouded enough to change the dye from blood red to pink on 20/01/2012 thats 10 days after changing out the tubing. *** .
on the 10th this is what it looked like
on the 20/01/2012 this is what it looked like
Primochill really need to fix this if its a problem with their tubing.
im gonna change out the pipes AGAIN for the third time and this time im gonna mix Mayhems Red Pastelle dye with fresh Distilled water (250 ml of dye with 750 ml off Distilled water= 1 Lt off coolant) and see if it happens again. I have a feeling i may have overtreated the water i used in the previous 2 loops.
I would change out the tubing for red tubing instead. Since the coolant in the res doesn't change colour, at least the red tubing will always stay red. I think it's a combination of tubing, heated liquid and the metals within water blocks that cause tubes to cloud over. I think the only "fix" is to stick with coloured tubing.
Wrong, get Sidewinder's stuff, it's cheap and stays clear.
@Raging Bull that tubing coming from the CPU to the GPU has a kink, make it shorter or get an angle fitting to fix it.
