In what way?
XSPC tube is known for having bad plasticizer issues so im not sure what you are vouching for.

This. All those Rasa kits were known to go bad quickly. One of the downsides to this kit; the crappy clear tube.

Then again, their budget kits might have come with "budget" tub not any quality tube. Still, i would be wary of xspc tube.


I'm going to contact a buddy who has a contact with Primochill. Gonna see if I can get a direct sample of clear tube from them to test.

I ran XSPC black tubing for over 2 years with no maintenance and had zero plasticizer build up and my current XSPC clear has been running for 5 months and no issues yet.

Interesting.
You are very much in the minority,reports mark it as not good at all,clouding and plasticizer are the main complaints.

Biocide? Coil? Dye?

Do you have pictures of your tubing in its current state?

The black I used DI water with a killcoil and the clear is DI with Mayhems deep blue but no killcoil or other additives.
I'll try and get a pic of the clear up tomorrow the black went in the bin a long time ago.

Strangely my experience with black primochill,one of the worst offenders right now,was the same with DI and a coil. No build up of any kind.

From what I have read on OCN, the tubing that comes with the kits is not the same tubing XSPC sells for some reason.

Id love to comment on tubing but every time i open my mouth i end up putting my foot in it so i wont this time around. My personal perf is cheaper the better.

Clearflex to me is a bargain as it does cloud over a given time frame yet is cheap as chips. How ever if you really what to reduce the risk of clouding check you PH levels. Don't use harsh chemicals if cleaning out you system and if you do make sure you bring you PH balance back into the range of 7. Keep you temps down as "Heat" has a big part to play in clouding and plasticizer being released into the system. Keep you PC away from direct sun light. if using UV lights only turn them on when needed. The thicker the tubing the more plasticizer or discolouring will be seen. And finally don't expect miracles ....

If you what the perfect tube speak to neg and get him to teach you how to bend copper piping.
