post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well i was looking at some of this stuff http://www.frozencpu.com/products/20517/ex-tub-1870/PrimoChilll_12_OD_Rigid_Acrylic_Tube_-_4x_24_Pack_-_Clear.html?tl=g30c99s2018#blank and i was wondering if there is any downside to Acrylic tubing?

It looks amazing. But is there any downside besides taking longer to setup or do? Anything i should know about it?

Hello,
I have this tubing in my build that I am working on ( not 100% done) but the only downsides is ,

1- Very fragile ( it will crack if pressure is applied)
2- Allot thinner ( It looks odd to me cause I have always used 1/2 3/4)
3- takes allot of time and patience to set up

only real bad things I have to say about it.

Just the setup,its time consuming.

Its not fragile,its very strong for its size.

Please check my sig for a guide on bending/forming.
