Would you like him to stand to attention and salute as he does it? Tone good sir, tone.

Maybe wink.gif no harm indented, just a short and quick reply on what was wrong and how to go about fixing it.

Remember, I am trying to limit the amount of black I have in my system. It's why I'm selling my EK fittings. Heck at this rate if I was to go black then I think I'd just keep em and go all black.mellowsmiley.gif

I believe dye breakdowns have been a scapegoat for far too long, I believe the majority of problems come from leeched plasticizer that has been dyed by the colour of the coolant.

Exactly this.

However.there is an alternative....

My nerves would be shot on day 0 the moment I put the tubing in my dark azz cave of a 932. This is the only negative about painting the interior of this case Black. As kkorky said I'd at least know the experience of a completely stealth PC. tongue.gif

But nope, cannot see it even for 1 minute. My OCD would be threatening a mutiny and my sanity would back im up. blushsmiley.gif

I'm already out there enough as it is. My GF would leave me if I stepped any further off the precipice that is my sanity. thumb.gif

I have seen this same issue (thanks to fenicks for sending me here).

I had a new loop setup with red and blue 7/16 x 5/8 Primochill from microcenter.

The blue has this issue after 3 weeks, the red, seems fine though. you can see in this pic where I have the CPU loop water, and then the fill port, the loop is no longer opaque as the fill port tube is.
Also the Second loop is new tubing in the pic. So the pump in the top right, for the GPU loop, has new in/out blue tube. The bottom right is the res/fill port for the CPU loop that ran for ~3 weeks.

IMAG0293.jpg

What proves this further, as a problem with primochill. is in the second pic here, the blue tube after the CPU to the MB, there is actually a piece of 3/8 x 5/8 DangerDen tubing (the barb on the MB is only 3/8), and when I looked at it, it showed NO signs of any film whatsoever.

IMAG0290.jpg

Anyways, think I would be able to take this back to Microcenter as a defective product? Show them the DD tube and the PC next to each other?

Thanks

Yes mate do that-return it, and if they doubt your claims-then ask them to log onto this site, and show them all the posts about Primochill wink.gif
They wont be able to say that you are at fault then.

From what I've been told, plasticizer is used to make the tubing more flexible. I haven't seen (or heard) anything proving this. Until the issue of cloudy tubing is fixed (by all tubing manufacturers) I'll stick with coloured tubing.
