To me the floating particles look like limescale or calcium from hard water. I have been struggling with this as well.

now after 3 days it's like that, i see stuff in the water, reservoir also gets cloudy.

could this be gunk from the radiator still? even after part 1?

radiator is a alphacool xt60 360.

no quick disconects.

my drain is like this:


Odd. Two things:

Where did you order the tubing from?

Did you order the tubing by the foot, or did you buy a package? On occasion people have ordered Adv LRT by the foot and were mistakenly shipped Pro LRT. Pro LRT has plasticizers issues, Adv LRT does not.

Have not personally found a tubing that doesn't yet. maybe hardline tubing is the only way to get rid of this problem, but hardline is no where
near as friendly to use etc.

What gives????

That's a rather bold statement. It contains no DEHP plasticizers which are the ones that generally cause issues amongst soft tubing. A tubing without plasticizers is not flex tubing. Plasticizers are what make tubing flexible. I've VERY rarely seen Adv LRT have issues with plasticizers. The majority of the time I've seen people have issues with LRT is when they mistakenly used Pro LRT tubing. The only prominent issue with adv LRT is a slight discoloration issue where it gets a mild yellow/brownish tint.

From a local store, and actually i'm afraid of that.
They ordered it from the distributer and received a normal plastic bag with the tubing in it no identification, tubing is all clear no way to know.
You guys know where i can order tubing with confidence, on overclockersUK it's out of stock.

I really don't think so.

I was using Primochill LRT adv. too. The more I look around forums it seems there has been quite a lot of this going on and Primochill is not really giving people a hard time about replacing the bad tubing. I went to acrylic. I got a bunch of clear Mayhems X1 for my next build.

I was only using distilled also :/

I didn't realize plasticizer looked like that but that's what I'm reading now. It's insane that it can happen so fast and with no real heat going into the loop, but that does appear to be the case.

It got into my Quick Disconnects and wreacked havoc. They were black and the only way to get it off of them was to take the paint off with it.

I got my LRT adv. from Amazon mostly. Maybe Primochill is simply putting Pro tubing in the LRT Adv. boxes and selling it off to get rid of it.

I have used retail packs of the original LRT and the advanced. I saw no real difference between them. I was still scooping small amounts of plasticiser from the CPU block. It was just never that bad with the original for me.

The only way to eliminate it was to use Norprene or hard tubing.

It may be a bold statement, but I still stand by it - as others do posting later on in the thread. It is just a shame - plasticizer or not it spoils things.

ok i just ordered some stuff to go into hard tubing, let's see how it goes.

my cpu block must have this stuff inside it's better to open it and clean?

i'm changing the jet plate anyway so ill just do it.

will part 2 eliminate the rest of the plasticizer that might be in the system?

As far as flux goes, what are some of the cleanest rads available?

I believe the alphacool units are pretty dirty from the factory.
