Edit: Forgot to mention, my XSPC tubing clouded up and got yellowish in 2 weeks.
Thanks in advance.

Coloured tubing is proving to be troublesome -imo go with clear tubing and a red Dye such as Mayhem's with Distilled water, or a red coolant such as Mayhem's X1.

Remember though that red dyes severely stain tubing.

Go here and read about the various types of coolants/dyes that Mayhem's make & what type of tubing he himself suggests that we use wink.gif

Where you live will play a role in what is the cheapest option-if you are in Europe go with Masteecleer clear tubing :

or if you are willing to spend more go for Tygon:

http://specialtech.co.uk/spshop/customer/Tygon-R3603-716-ID---58-OD-11-16mm-Tubing--Clear-pid-5834.html


If you are in the States, you also have the choice of getting Durelene@ that size :http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/dupvctu7id5o.html

Final note, it seems that from reading the various posts in this thread that no matter what you use or do, there will always be some discolouration of your tubing or a white 'haze' (this is not noticeable when there is fluid in your tubes), and does not affect your loop in anyway at all.

This should not be mixed up with plasticizer deposits from certain types of tubing, that actually deposit unwanted material into your loop, and in the long run may present you with problems.

Thank you. I'm going with either of the mentioned ones then. I think dyes look better than colored tubing anyway. tongue.gif

Do you know what either the water temp or the room temps are? It seems that the water getting over the 30C range is the issue... and with those temps it isn't (or not by much).
BTW... those are idle temps right?!? If your core temps are in the high twenties under load... one of us is doing something wrong. biggrin.gif

Yes that's in Fahrenheit and its getting very cold here in NYC so my temps will drop even lower.

load temps on the cpu are around 40 to 45C at 3.9GHz since i brought the 3770K back to stock specs.

Hello all I have been redoing my loop for my Bitfenix Prodigy MATX mod (log here rolleyes.gif ) and when I was taking the tubing off I came across a white residue on my fittings and I got concerned then I decided to cut open some tubing and was not happy with what I found... I was just wondering is this bad for your loop? It may have said this somewhere already but I missed it... Sorry. Could someone help me with this question?

Which tubing is that?
Its not bad until it clogs up your components and restrict flow. But it looks damn ugly though.

This would be PrimoFlex Pro LRT UV Red Tubing I cant say I'm happy with it.... But the new tubing I bought for this build is the same stuff in white... I just wish I knew what it was like

EDIT: @ Rakin, Thanks that is very reassuring to know thumb.gif Does it continuously get worse? or does it stop after a certain amount of time?

From what I read, it spreads soon and clogs up your blocks, radiators and fittings. By any chance are you using a kill coil in your loop?

Apart from obvious plasticizer residue in your tubes, you also seem to have a flaking problem with your Monsoon fitting(s) if they are still under warranty i would suggest that you RMA them.

The flaking residue from the fittings will present a much more serious problem right now(the plasticizer can be dealt with afterwards, but not too long afterwards wink.gif)

Failure to remove any items in your loop that are flaking will clog up your blocks and also may cause damage (not to mention clogging) to your pump-deal with this now mate.

Edit:do like i suggested to Rakin after you have dealt with your immediate problem, get clear tubing and dye-you will have much less of a plasticizer problem.

A prior reading of this thread will tell you what tubing is suitable, a few posts back i listed a few examples of clear tubing & dye/coolant suitable for your needs.
Dump the white Primochill!

Yup it is in side of my res, Should I be trying to look for other tubing or is this just a one off thing? A bad batch perhaps?
