One of the mods did a steampunk themed build with copper tube. He used some for the water plumbing and some smaller ones as conduits for the wires. Pretty neat idea and I have seen nickel plated copper pipes used for plumbing in some extreme builds. Good luck mate. I'll look forward to a build log from yah thumb.gif

Hmm I think all of you guys are just getting a bad batch or something cause my Primochill Black LRT is doing just fine. Note I do not use a Kill Coil.

Its been more recent tube/purchases. I ran 1/2x3/4 clear Primochill this last fall and it never turned in the few months I had it. I had used Primochill white, black, and red tube and I never once had any plasticizing. So its seems like its a bad production run within the last few months. So ppl are claiming they never had this issue and bought their tube around this. Could have been an older batch or something like that.

Thank guys! thumb.gif I already ordered the metric copper tubing and I need to get some Bitspower multi-link adapter C47. Hopefully it will work!

I have some 1/2"x3/4" red tubing ordered 2 weeks ago and it was showing white after 1 weeks of use. I only know that because I had some falling out of a compression fitting so I had to drain loop quickly. I dont think the plasticizer was the reason for the disconnection, more I think I was pulling on the tube too much, not enough slack.

What's really bad, I just ordered another 10 feet of the same tubing before I found my issue. Guess I'll be stuck with subpar materials for the next few months. Can't convince my wife to buy new tubing everyday.

Just put together a loop.
I was going to use primochill but since I bought it about the same time as you guys started reporting this I decided to use a cheap Masterkleer (or masterclear or whatever) first and the primochill I used only to connect the top GPU to the 120mm rad, as a test run. wink.gif

Detailed pics on the link above but I'll post a single one here too:

Looks like no dye to me. Look at the tubing between cards - it's clear with no color.
