I'll check mine in a month to see how it does
hopefully you don't have this trouble if tubes are not in a bad shape. I am just still worried about my RX240 radiator that was used with this cpu block and primochill (and X2O dual bay res pump I sold at time of upgrade to current setup) ... just hoping the inside of my external rad don't look same bad - did flush it with liquid soap, vinegar and lots of hot tap and cold distiller water ... but perhaps I should have flushed it with boiling vinegar & lemon juice/acid mixture ... will never know.

The small bit of tubing connecting them shouldn't leach enough to impact the CPU block that badly. It's the run from the Pumps to the FC Block that has me worried no matter how smooth it is inside the block. Too many places for it to latch onto. Specifically the access plate. I'm hoping that I won't have to remove my block from the Motherboard cause it's such a pain in the azz, as my cutout isn't large enough to do so without pulling the board completely. Might be a good idea to consider modding in an access opening for those points on my Mainboard Tray.
yup, I'd check on block if primochill's tubing went bad around such components. I haven't checked on GPU Razor 670 block though, it was used for only 1-2 weeks with primochil's tubing and that was after scrubbing and cleaning and flushing of other rads/block and pump+res upgrade. then I swapped tubing to Feser. hopefully I am good to go now and no more trouble down the road.
I modded my case with a dremel to make MB tray cutouts for CPU backplate access (had none before) and cable management cut outs, makes the life so much easier when the time comes!
