EKWB cooling hose issues

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys.

I'm wondering that am I having bad luck or what is it, because i have noticed that the hose that came with the EK H3O 360HFX kit, is getting pretty darn faded.

I noticed this after around 2 months of use when i changed my setup a little.



I'd say this is pretty bad, because i have ONLY used their own liquids and not having any extreme temps what so ever.

Even my in case temps are at 25 degree celsius all the time and cpu running below 30 all the time.

thats pretty bad for 2 months... are you using their colored coolant?
I think the tube that comes with their kit is masterkleer tubing, am using one myself but in red,
will be hard to notice such plasticized on colored tube doh.gif

Yep I think this is pretty bad for such a short time.

It says on their site that it is masterkleer tubing.

I first used their dye (blue) that came with the kit and distilled water (baxter hypotonic) and now i'm using their uv green premix
