All the new Monsoon fittings, and even new versions of their previous fittings, now have barbs or bases made with antimicrobial silver.

There's been some thought for some time that silver does not play well with nickel. EK used to frown on silver used with any of their nickel blocks (though they have since abandoned that stance), and Koolance still says any silver with any of their nickel products voids the warranty on them. That, and Martin generally discourages the use of silver with nickel, especially if they come into direct contact, which would be the case if a monsoon fitting was screwed into a nickel block.

Personally, I just prefer to run distilled plus Nuke in my loop, and just don't really want to add silver which just further increases the galvanic potential in a loop that otherwise is mostly copper, nickel, and brass.

Acrylic definitely requires quite a bit of practice and write offs.
If you look closely the bends are little bit flat since the kit comes with a hollow rubber insert and I couldn't find a solid insert anywhere here in South Africa.

Acrylic is old news man, it takes to long to heat up and it's a pain to work with, shoulda tried THIS stuff

Part # 9245K21

My rig with this tubing

Looks exactly the same as the acrylic except it bends & cuts easier.

And there has been a decent amount of discussion about it in this thread about how PETG is not UV resistant - so unlike acrylic is prone to yellowing and may become more brittle over time - and how it's hydroscopic so may be prone to staining and leeching (plasticizer type issues) like flexible tubing, and ... I think the jury is still out on whether PETG is a suitable replacement for acrylic or not. May be. Maybe not.

Show me a place that sells it in SA and I'll get it. Reason for me getting acrylic is because I was buying all my WC parts from one shop to reduce my delivery costs. Delivery from US to SA is far from cheap.

What are people using to cut acrylic tubing? Been searching but no luck so far. Is there a specific tpi saw to use or?

The barbed bases on the Monsoon fittings use silver plating. That's the half the reason I'm switching to Bitspower Enhanced Multi-Links. The other half is looks. Monsoon swears silver is good for your loop, perhaps they are right, but now that I have another option that I like more (and I'm using X1) I can't afford to know if they are right.

Gotcha. Wasn't even aware of these issues. I have no problems being a guinea pig. I love tearing down my rig and working on it. been running this PETG tubing for a few weeks now with no issues. I'll be sure to provide an update in a few months or next time I tear down my loop which will probably be soon. I bought another SSD to add to Gaming Raid Array and my SSD's are mounted under my PSU covers so I have to drain and dismantle my entire loop to be able to get to them lol

And thanks for mentioning the pricing of the two, just went to McMaster carr's website and saw that the Acrylic 8532K13 is $3.69 for 6 ft (.615/ft) and the PETG 9245K21 is $6.84 for 6 ft (1.14/ft). Primochill is charging $2.12 per foot (WOW) for acrylic

Anyhow lol the PETG was much easier to work with but i'm guessing i'll be buying acrylic again

I'm not a huge fan of all white cases, but I like this... The only thing I'd change is the fan blade to black.
