To clarify though, it wasn't that I had a good batch(that was more hope than anything else) but that I thought that additives could be speeding up the leeching process since the tubing has an additive embedded in it to prevent algae growth from happening. I don't run additives. No Kill Coil no PT Nuke, no nothing. Straight distilled. And nope it's not a good batch of tubing. Leaving the "c" out of the word "batch" was what confused the bejeezies out of me. All good, I now have what you meant figured out now. Thanks for the reminder. biggrin.gif

Yes I have already ordered and received the Tygon. It is definitely stiffer then the Primochill is (still have a couple of pieces I never used).

Edit: As long as it doesn't plasticize like the Primochill I will be happy. I didn't have too much trouble running into kinks before.

Yes I was asking because this is the first time I have ever done a liquid cooled pc. I will post some pictures when I break open the loop. I am currently still waiting on some parts for expanding my loop. I will say this though I can not see my two silver kill coils that I put in before the GPU and CPU blocks. I am going to be trying Tygon R3400 this time around.
+rep to both of you.

Generally mate its a tubing confined problem, there have been cases of plasticizer metastasising to other components of the loop, but they are in the minority.

Just keep an eye on your tubing ,use a pinch test, and your basic good old eye sight thumb.gif (pinch test=pinch the tubing to see if it leaves any clear areas there where you have pinched, if so and the difference is very noticeable, id suggest that you swap out your tubing, but we're talking 2-3 months here, so no need to panic.)

The main thing is to enjoy what your doing, and don't worry about such problems, even a Ferrari needs tuning every so often-if i was you, i'd worry more about, where the next set of cash is going to come from to buy new gear, after you get truly bitten by the wc bug biggrin.gif

Also if you are worried, just post pics, and describe your problem, there are many people capable of helping you. good luck mate thumb.gif

Got my Primochill advanced tubing in. Here are some pictures:





Durelene on the left



Durelene on the right





Thoughts:

The new Primochill is much stiffer and has a yellowish tent to it. Not much but when compared to the Durelene it is slightly yellow. The new Primochill is much stiffer than the Durelene and seems to be more resistant to kinking than the Durelene. Im not sure whats up with this whole system prep thing but I cant see myself using it if I were to every use this Primochill tubing. If anyone has any other questions please ask and Ill be sure to answer. Also if anyone wants more pictures or test as well please just let me know.

That is definitely some sage advice. Unfortunately it can sometime be hard to remember when you have put some much money and time into the project. However I will have to try and keep it in mind once I break down the loop. thumb.gif

It doesn't mean that he knows what hes talk about.
This will be up to you,"This is called peace of mind". if you think the blocks needs to be open then do it. can you post some pictures of your bad experience and may be we can tell you what or not to do.
reality is the case like when you spit in the wind, it might come back in your face. says what you like to say but no insults.
Yeah I just received an infraction, oh well I can't stand people like that so i just blocked him thumb.gif
post #1979 of 3087
Sorry to hear that. But we do learn from our mistakes. I had couple infractions in the past. Just lay low a bit your words and everything will be alright.

Haha i will, it makes me feel like crap seeing that infraction wanted a good rep in this community., oh well i will have to learn to deal with people how i deal with people in real life.
Also back on topic, i tried a month ago to place a bucket of 60c water with my tubing which had plasticized, left it for an hour and rolled it for a good 10 minutes and nothing happened.
