I currently have the XSPC 360Kit with the XSPC tubing. Well the tubing is a nasty yellowish color and not clear.

What is a good alternative tubing to replace it?

I was looking at the Tygon tubing. Is that good or would anyone recommend something else?

I had the same problem. Replaced the tubing that came with the kit with Tygon R3603, and it seems good so far.

The Tygon has been installed for about a month, by which time the XSPC tubing had significant yellowing.

To be fair, however, I should add a couple of caveats:

I think the original tubing may have borne the brunt of the fact that everything was new (especially the radiator).

Also, I've used a premixed, coloured coolant this time round which may tend to obscure any yellowing.

Next time I order from FrozenCPU I will get more coolant and see how the Tygon looks after draining the loop.

I will say the Tygon does take bends better than the original stuff.

Hope that helps.

Well the thing that sucks is I've only been using the XSPC kit/tubing for around a month now. It's very yellow and ugly and it happened so quick.

Tygon looks like the best option but if anyone else has a suggestions please let me know.

Thanks so far for all the help guys!

I also found the XSPC bundled hose to yellow in only a few weeks, I'm now running Masterkleer which seems to be just as clear as new after 4 weeks - early days but.. thumb.gif
