Feser is great, ill be posting pics of 6 month old tubing in a few days-im currently working on another rig for my wife and the the tubing previously used was Feser Clear UV-sure it stains as all tubing does I used Mayhems red dye(red/pink are the worst culprits when it comes to staining tubing), so it stained badly, but no plasticizer at all.

That does not mean that it is the Holy grail, please remember that, your rig will have different variables to mine wink.gif

That having been said, a couple of other people have also posted positive feedback in this thread with regards to Feser.

Im going to run Masteekleer with Mayhems UV pastel white in her rig-i was hoping to have been able to use the new Promochill Advanced, some was sent to me just over a month ago or thereabouts, and i still have not received it wth.gif

OK thanks. well i already ordered primochill pro a couple of days ago and today I came across this thread. Guess I will have to use these until the advanced lrt become available here.

Does this plasticising actually damage the blocks,radiators and fittings? If not, im fine with a bit of white on the inside.

Depends on the severity of the leeching. For a short time it shouldn't matter. Though we have seen instances where the blocks have been affected with what looks to be dye residues filling the cooling vanes inside them. It's more likely plasticizer that took on the tint of the dyes. Soon as you can you should replace it. I ran mine of 6 months so it wasn't too bad for me. System is down while I am away on walkabout. Soon as I get back I will see about replacing my tubing. thumb.gif

yeah so ive sat here and read about 40 pages of people trying to figure stuff out, i give up lwhen i first built my loop a couple months ago i was going to run with primochill lrt... but i was told by a buddy of mine, who was testing the prototype of the advanced tubing to wait... so i did and went with some durelene from sidewinder (local place)....
its nice when its new, but never again unless i need tubing BAD. its the cheapest out there.... so far for 20' ive paid right at $10. (compared to paying $20-25 for 10' of primochill". a LOT of people said this was better than primochill... lol
mine clouded within about a week to two weeks...
-however, i just tested a piece from a month ago, and no plasticizing from what i can tell... just bad clouding...


because i failed to read the last 200 some odd pages, has anyone came up with anything worth using??

btw, helpful info about me, using 3/8x1/2 with mayhems pastel blue/distilled mix...

I suggest you search the thread using brand names and read the various results to enable you to form your own opinion.

I just broke down my loop after using Durelene for over four months. A little clouding that was not evident while the loop was in operation, only when it was drained. I am using distilled and Zalman G100.

There is not a definitive product yet but from what I have read and I have been following this thread since the beginning I would say Durelene , the new advanced from primo and feser thos are the 3 top contenders right now IMO

Does this plasticising actually damage the blocks,radiators and fittings? If not, im fine with a bit of white on the inside.

The platicizer built up in my CPU block and caused very bad flow rate, it went un-noticed by myself and one morning I woke up and the tubing around the CPU block had almost melted due to the heat, and thusly they became loose from their compression fittings, leaking water allover my GPU and case. All I got from primochill was a "sorry" and 6 foot of their new tubing, barely enough to cover my new loop. Oh, and I had to pay for the shipping on it too.

Well, just decided to replace all of the PrimoFlex Pro Red tubing in my case with the New PrimoFlex Advanced Crystal Clear + Mayhem Red Dye.
I am curious to see how it does considering the Pro red tubing started showing plasticizer after less than 1 week of use.

Here is the start pic, ignore the paper towels. Still in leak test. but just wanted a shot of the tubes clear before anything could fog it up.


Will add pics when i get updates.

Moved from separate thread


Well its been 3 days now and its starting to show a little bit of cloudiness already which isn't looking good so far. Will post updated pics in a few days.

Well that sucks, I want some clear tubing to use Mayhems Deep Red dye and I'm not sure which brand of tubing to buy, as all seem to have plasticizer sooner or later.
