Will it get noticeably clouded? Thanks!
What's your tubing btw?
edit:
I meant by what is your tubing rate by your satisfaction (one to ten), sorry if I was misunderstood


I cant give you an opinion on the Elegant white from Primochill- the reason being that its a fairly new product, and no feedback has been posted on it as yet either, and i personally have not used it (atm im testing the clear ADV).


i would rate the the Mastercleer tubing that i am using as 8/10-ill explain.

Firstly, i don't believe that there is a 10 out there as yet wink.gif

Secondly, because i have only been running it for a few months-its too early to make a proper call on it, but so far it has been perfect, it has not lost its 'shine', and it was very easy to work with (its very pliable, yet does not kink), i also run my rigs 24/7 so 2 months use, is more or less 3-4 months for normal users (temps are between 24-26c idle, and 36-39 under full load)

The pastel that i am using is perfectly visible without any clouding/hazing as yet.

So that having been said-i would give it an 8 for now, i may well change my mind after another 2 months biggrin.gif

I hate living here in Israel it's like 30C outside and the CPU gets 40 to 60C when I OC it :d
It also happens because I have two 6870s that exhaust the heat to the inner part of the case.
Anyway I'm a 7/16" 5/8" guy and all I have is Primochill/XSPC (which I have now from the kit)/Tygon which annoys me....
Boy I wish I could run the machine 24/7 but the HDD is defective for over 2 years and the seller agreed to take a look only today

Quick question: How many times do you rinse a radiator after flushing it with vinegar? I did a quick flush of 50/50 distilled and vinegar and then rinsed the radiators 4 times with distilled water. They still smell like there is some trace amounts of vinegar in them.

Get a bottle of Windex or other household cleaning product, rinse thoroughly with hot water and you can still smell the odors from all the chemicals. It's a good question nonetheless!

So rinse with windex, never heard of that before? I am asking because if I still smell it then I assume it is still in the radiators.

On another note I contacted primochill and they are sending me some replacement tubing was pretty easy, just needed to provide a picture and receipt.

Cloudiness is going to happen no matter what kind of tubing you have over a long period of time. Some break down way faster than others. Durelene so far has been the one that has held up the longest with only some slight hazing.

What's making your water that green color, doesn't look like the tubing is causing it. Usually green water means that you're getting copper in your water so something is breaking down. I'd take apart you loop and and see what's causing it.

something is breaking down?
post #2389 of 3087
Breaking down is kind of a harsh term, but you definitely have something causing the copper in your loop to oxidize. It's the same thing as why the Statue of Liberty is green. Whatever it is, it's not the tubing, it's your water that's green.

Someone else might know what's going on, but my chemistry thoughts are telling me that you have copper oxidization in there.

The pieces are new they were washed too and thats not green it looks like but is not.. More like clouding and light on the picture.
Its not even a month old tube..
