I know that Tygon has plasticizer free tubing. If Tygon is my only choice then I will go with that....Thoughts????
I have heard that the Tygon plasticizer free is quite stiff but I have never tried it for myself.
I believe all clear tubing will show the Clouding or staining over time, where colored will hide it.
I believe there is so little about the true plasticization in the recent tubing i.e. chunks of tubing breaking off .
A little discoloration /clouding with clear tubing will probably be unavoidable over time and will probably be an aesthetic rather that of a actual problem.
I feel that I am leaning more towards Primochill Advance LTR Clear. Going to be using Mayhem X1 Blood Red.
I would give this as a good choice again I would use it
All comes down to personal preference I used Masterkleer red tubing because I watered down my coolant and wanted red hoses rather pink
water has the best thermal conductivity for coolant and too much glycol/coolant will slightly decrease the viscosity over water.
I have 3 rads and 3 water blocks on one loop with one pump so I paid much more attention to viscosity and thermal conductivity.
if it were 2 rads and 2 water blocks I wouldn't have worried about this.Edited by feznz - 3/28/13 at 2:58pm
