Type of Tygon: E-1000 at 3/8ID 5/8OD
Type of Fluid: EK UV blue

Used 2375 for my first build and then moved to E-1000. I like E-1000 better than 2375. It is much easier to work on and it is clearer.

Whalemeal do you have any pictures you could edit your post with? I'd like to be able to link people to each submission so they can see what different types of Tygon looks like with different kinds of fluids. I'll add you now thoughthumbsupsmiley.png

 

 

 

 

See I've had experience with E-1000 and my Bitspower Compressions just would not clamp it down headscratch.gif

 

I will agree that I did overexagerate the E-1000's capabilities. I've got to update the thread a little bit and add Tygon's R-1000 varient.

 

I'm also trying to come up with a good way to organize a video review of all of the different types of Tygon tubing as well. Anyone have any suggestions for me?

 

 

EDIT: Spreadsheet Updated. Thanks for keeping this thread alive guys! <3

Here are some pictures of my rig.


This is my old setup with Tygon 2375 / EK Blood Red. Note how I set my VRM inlet and outlet in wierd way because this tube was so hard to bend.



This is my current setup with Tygon E-1000 / EK UV Blue. Again, this looks much clearer.

did anybody use tygon se-200 tubing ?
i personally use r3603 which is very slear tubing , but it gets cloudy after a few days due to plastisizer .
i ordered 2375 tubing from sidewinder , and it looks like crap . very foggy tubing , not clear at all .

i'm looking for glass like clarity (without fogging after few days), and i heared se-200 supposed to be clear , is that true ?

if not , where can i get medical grade tubing with galss like clarity ?

Sstephan, what kind of fluid are you using? Too much biocide/kill coil can cloud tubing extremely fast. I run 3603 myself and haven't had any clouding issues so far. As for your 2375/2475, the tubing is manufactured foggy, unfortunately there isn't any changing that. I'd try B-44-4X if the 3603 was unsatisfactory for you.

Hmm that's weird, Tygon doesn't usually do that. I guess technically if it's not plasticizer free it's going to do that. 

 

You can go ahead and try B-44-4X, but that tubing too isn't plasticizer free.

I am doing my first Watercooling build and have ordered every part except for the tubing. I will be using Koolance Compression fittings 1/2" inner 3/4" outer diameter. I am glad I found this thread because I was going to purchase Tygon 2475 but wanted a clear look. What would be your best recomendation for me. Since it looks like E-1000 won't work according to the guide at the beginnig of this post

Thank you,

Been folding 24/7 for couple months now. Apologies for misleading picture, taken at night and auto-levelled in Paint.Net which seems to show the colour as lightly mojito, but in natural light it's not green at all. I'll replace the picture next time I pull the rig apart.
