I too have Primochill clear tubing and it when cloudy in less than a month. So far, my temps have been very consistent.

Here are the pics off before and after.

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

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.

Funny thought: Who or what was the first company to use this tactic? I am trying to imagine a cave man telling a customer he was using the first wheel incorrectly or the fire he sold him was functioning properly when it burned down his cave. tongue.gif

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.

I think the QDC are making a smooth run difficult for him. Honestly, its a bit impractical imho having QDC like that. I use qdc(s) for my drainage system.

I also use QDCs for drainage purposes and also I put a temp gauge in over the weekend and with steam updating, 2 browser windows, and hard drive backup my water temp is at 27c. While gaming it goes up to about 37c, but that was playing dota2 with vsync.
