here is what happened to my Raystorm cpu block after only 4 days of using Sys Cleaner, as you can see the crap from Proimochill tubing got liquified and loosened off. there was initially 2 blobs of blue gel that came out of Raystorm CPU block when flushing it under hot water, the picture shows what I found in it AFTER flushing with hot water for 30 mins and using some liquid soap, then I decided to open the block to have a look, not the blue tint to those tiny gel particles around jet area on cooling plate.

I was waiting for this for long long time and finally someone got the guts to post the real DEAL of bad side of this crap SYS SCRUB cleaner. I know it will leave a lot of crap inside the blocks. This gel stuck in your blocks eventually it will going to transform in some kinda corrosion and from that it will eat the rest of you blocks and rad with NO DOUBT.

have you seen it? feniks may turn out like this in the future. who knows mad.gif .


I will never wait to see this happen, this is on of my big concern.

That is beyond bad, maybe instead of getting the scrubber... just get new tubing seems a little cheaper tongue.gif

That's what I'm talking about - I can totally understand wanting to sue if there is irreparable damage to multiple components in a loop. But it seems many people are complaining about having to trash $40 or so worth of tubing to have a 'safer' loop - to me that just made good sense despite just having purchased the PC tubing. Do I wish I hadn't given them any of my money? Sure. Am I going to spend even one hour trying to get that $40 back from them? Nope. I realize that everyone's situation is different, but when most of us have more money invested in a few fittings (or one fitting for those monsoon 90-degree guys) it's not the end of the world to just avoid them in the future. I figure I already lost the initial money... I'm not going to waste even more just to get a batch of (thus far) unproven 'better' tubing from the same company. Caveat Emptor (sp?) as the saying goes.

Now the question is, what do I get?


I had some cloudy Tygon and I was able to wash it clear with dish washing soap and hot water. Used a rag and forced it through to scrub. Rinsed with hot water then ran rubbing alcohol through it to for cleanliness then ran some more water for rinse.

yup, I've seen it before. I caught it early, but I'm pretty sure that's where it was heading to. I am still unsure of my rads ... not much I can do about them on top of vinegar & hot water flushing, they seem OK now, but who knows what is inside ... THAT is what pisses me really off and makes me want to keep bashing Primochill further. I don't care about money I lost on their tubing (in garbage since 2 months), but what about the rest that can't be opened up for inspection? it sucks.
I just hope that rads have no such residue since the reservoir didn't have it at all, but it could be wishful thinking ...

Not to side with PrimoChill, but they said Sys Scrubber was meant to be in the system for a max of 3 days...

actually not true. the instructions they send state anywhere from 24 hours to 4 days, that's what I received and followed up to max. it didn't clean all the white film from tubing however (needed to manually scrub anyways) and it caused more trouble with loosening the blue gel particles ... besides after draining some sections of the tubing looked like covered with blue honey inside. some total crap. even after I cleaned it off manually and re-used the white film started coming back in a week or so, after another drain (distilled with Primochill Utopia used, no silver coil) the tubing became clouded and whitish all over inside upon drying. that's what I call a POS tubing being actually dangerous and customer service incapable of admitting the problem and helping the customer to solve the problem leading to potentially endangering all components by using it still. I boycott Primochill.

I would test your ph levels in your loop to make sure it isn't high.

This is what happened to mine few weeks ago. I used the scrubber for around 40 hours. Tubes are crystal clear, even clearer than a new one. I kept my system running the whole time while the scrubber was in.




I'm currently using the "scrubbed" tubes. If it turns cloudy again, I think I'll demand a replacement. If they honor it though.
