Been using the Raystorm EX240 w/ d5 vario pump kit for about 7 months and the tubing seems perfectly fine. Of course I got black tubing, but otherwise still seems ok. As for thermal paste, you could use, MX-4, IC Diamond, or Shin-Etsu X23-7783D. I personally use Shin Etsu because it has always been good for me. Most who have used it are pretty satisfied with it. Using Shin Etsu on both my CPU and GPU blocks.

Orange stuff is rare because nothing rhymes with orange. Also because it's a very bright color.

If you want orange, just get one of those $400 Gigabyte motherboards. tongue.gif

If you want your loop to be orange, just get some orange Meyhems concentrate. That stuff tends to work well.

Mind lending me that $400? tongue.gif

As for the concentrate is the XSPC Dual 5.25" Bay Reservoir - Laing D5 - Black a fail? Kinda confused on that. http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_381_1071_915&products_id=35742&zenid=f8bd82e8c3a2582c5647c6f03b9b5896

Fan, fans, fans, are the fans that come with it okay or should I be looking at picking up new ones also push/pull?

I saw a review that says they are actually good. But everyone still says replace me. Up to you but I think they are fine.
