When my Danger Den DreamFlex started to leech. I could see some gunk in my CPU block but it didn't affect my temperature to much yet, it just look nasty.

Also, this is OCN, we have quite a few perfectionists (I am not among them). To me it's like saying you should be happy with a big scratch on the inside of your case if only you can see it. Some people will care, some people will say it doesn't matter. To each their own, I say biggrin.gif

I tried the stuff from Home Depot and its cheap holds up a bit better. If you have any reservations, contact the seller or store you got your tube from and work out a refund or exchange/credit. There are quite a few other brands out there as well and you can always go colored tubing if you don't want to risk clear tube.

With this recent issue, I don't believe so. A majority of the gunk issues people saw in the past and blamed on pre-mix and dyes however, are likely plasticizer and not the fluid failing.

Some of those pre-mixed kind of earned that reputation. Personally, I wouldn't run a dye cause they're too expensive. I could get a couple bottle of McCormick's food coloring for less and it wouldn't harm my loop. Still not into the who dye fad though. To each their own. wink.gif

Perfectionist here, if it don't look good to me it don't look good to anyone. wave2.gif

Glad to hear if I go with the Homes stuff, is not bad. I'll stick with my White tubing for the moment though. Cost me about the same or less but you know the specifics of that werm. thumb.gif

+1. Agreed. No harm in asking questions. The harm is in not asking questions and going about like you know all. smile.gif

FYI, the PrimoChill LRT from Koolertek is at least 8 months old (maybe more), so any recent problems in production runs won't be a part of what is sold there. That's what happens when you buy more than you can sell in a certain time frame, though with this news, its probably a good thing.

I have Primochill blue... how do i see if its got plasticizer without taking apart the loop? ive been running for about a month now... distilled water and a killcoil.

EDIT: Yes, i think it has plasticized... i held up a flashlight to both by original tube and my new tube (i put one in like last week) the new one is much clearer, the old one is cloudy sortof and i can see some crap on the inside. Oh well frown.gif

The tubing will look very clouded if you have the issue, almost opaque.

I think his family owns Koolertek or something like that. Someone noted that and the member mentioned he's "in the business".
