I had to tear the loop apart and the longer it sat dry the whiter the tubing got. I have it back together now and about 75% of the cloudiness is gone, but one portion refuses to even match the rest of the loop. Ironically the 7/16"x5/8" i have on my Swiftech GPU bridge is crystal clear after over 15 hours running the Sysprep.

I would like to say that the more flexible stuff they made 5 years ago never had this problem, was easy to turn into small radii and flexed well over larger fittings. Wish they still made it cause i would trade the shiny exterior for a clear interior.



I have said MANY times-dont use the sysprep (use the search in this thread and look up sysprep)

-some have no problems with it, others do, either way such abrasive chemicals are dubious at best.

That having been said, you haven't given enough finer details as to the composition of your loop for anyone to make an educated guess

Dude, dont preach at me, this thread was followed from Bing results. Besides, all i had to do was supply a receipt and Primochill sent me new tubing.

Preach at you?? (you mean to you, dont you?)

Stop being so sensitive, and stop perceiving things for what they are not.

I have no desire to preach to anyone, im sorry if you see things that way rolleyes.gif

You come here asking questions, and then when you get a reply that you dont like or understand (you totally misunderstood the tone of the reply ), you get irrate?

Nice thumb.gif

Saying "ive said MANY times...." implies that everyone posting here should know what your opinion is and that it should be taken as gospel. Hence, preaching.

In your litttle world sure it does.

Actually im not the only one who has said the same about sysprep( if you had taken the time to use the search function, you would verify that), but others who contribute to the thread couldnt be bothered to reply to your question since the issue has been addressed many times,

i should have done the same-oh well we live and learn wink.gif

im done with you and your false impressions-this has gone way OT.

I used Sysprep in my loop back in December. I am adding another radiator and changing cases, as we speak, and I was surprised on how clean the inside of the blocks look. I figured I would have to do some cleaning to them before reinstalling them, but they look almost brand new to me. Not sure if the Sysprep helped at all, but I will be using it again.
I'm using Advanced LTR and no signs of plasticizer either. Running distilled and Liquid Utopia.

Also, the stuff seems to be slightly different in terms of tolerance than the Primoflex Pro LRT, as when I went to put the first bit of tubing over a Bitspower Compression Barb, it simply wouldn't go! It took me like 5 minutes to get it on there! This is compared to the Pro LRT which did take some effort but not so much that I was worried about breaking something! I HONESTLY THOUGHT that I had gotten a box with the wrong size marked on it, because it felt like trying to put 7/16x3/4 tubing on a 1/2x3/4 compression!

Hi,

I just got my Primochill Advanced LRT Black from Specialtech and compared it to my unused old Primochill PRO LRT Black. I cannot see any difference regarding stiffness, while it was quite easy to fit the 7/16-5/8 ADVANED tube even in my 1/2 inch BP Barb fitting. Even in my BP 7/16-5/8 compression fitting the new advanced lrt was very easily with no extra effort installed. The only difference i noticed is that the ADVANCED LRT has slightly smoother surface than the old PRO LRT.

Even specialtech site says:
"Please Note : Primochill Advanced Tubing is Exceptionally tight on Fittings. We recommend dipping the end of the tubing in warm / hot water for a few seconds to make installation easier."
http://specialtech.co.uk/spshop/customer/Primochill-PrimoFlex-Advanced-LRT-716-ID---58-OD-11-16mm-Tubing--Onyx-Black-pid-17691.html

...which is not my case!

So, my experience is completely oposite from what @nleksan describes above. The guys @specialtech are excellent professionals and i believe they sent me the right stuff. Still, i dont get, why my ADVANCED LRT is not that tight or stiff? Any of you ADVANCED LRT owners, have you noticed the stiffness difference?

Thanks...

My advanced LRTs required heating in water and strenght to fit on my Koolance 16/10 fittings. Without heating it would of nearly been impossible.

My advanced LRT 7/16" ID 5/8" OD can slide in to my XSPC & Monsoon 7/16" ID 5/8" OD compression fittings with little effort. I don't think mine will easily slide in to 1/2" fittings though.

HIya all. I am new to the WC community. I was read a lot of this thread, and I do have few questions for everyone here. First let me start off by given a list of the parts that I am going to be using in the build.

Case: NZXT Switch 810
CPU Block: RayStorm
GPU Block: Heatkiller GPU-X³ 680 or 780 ver.
Radiator: Alphacool NeXxos XT45 360 Full Copper in the top in Push/Pull
Radiator: Alphacool NeXxos UT60 240 Full Copper in the bottom in Push/Pull
Reservoir: Monsoon Series 2 D5 Premium Dual Bay Reservoir - Red
Pump: XSPC D5 Vario Pump


Here is where my questions start. What I have listed OK together? I have been that people have used the wrong parts together, and have had big issues. Second, I really don't want to use dye, so I am wanting to go with colored tubing. The tubing I was going to go with PrimoChill PrimoFlex Advanced LRT Tubing 7/16 x 5/8" OD - Bloodshed Red. It has been a few months now and I haven't heard of any says bad things about the new Adv. LRT tubing like they did with the PRO LRT tubing. But if I had to use something else beside just distilled water I was thinking about using Mayhem's Pastel Red or X1. Third, for fitting are the Bitspower Premium G1/4" Black Matte High Flow Compression Fitting ok with this set up? Last, when it comes to Silver Kill Coil or PT Nuke or is there something else out there that works just as good? I have seen that some people think that the Kill Coil is some type of chemical reaction into tubing; however I have not read anything that definitively answering this question....I would also like to thank everyone that has contributed to this thread. It a great resource for everyone who is having issues with tubing problems.
