Coloured tubing + coloured dye or clear tubing + coloured dye?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm having trouble deciding on whether coloured tubing with coloured dye (for the tube res) would look better versus clear tubing with the same dye. I will be getting either clear or white primochill tubing, and mayhems pastel white coolant.
What do you guys think would look better?

EDIT: Also, if you guys could tell me if the Black Ice SR1 480mm radiator is good? I wanted to get an xspc or ek radiator but they are sold out on performancepcs.

I have used both and I prefer Mayhems white over white tubing.

The SR1 is fantastic if you are using it w/ low speed fans.

Probably using corsair SP120 quite edition so I guess they are fairly low speed.

Okay so I will get the SR1 rads, but I'm still undecided about the tubing :/
