Which tubing?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm about to use the Mayhems pastel pure black coolant and my question is which tubing would fit best?

The PrimoChill LRT 13/19 Onyx Black or Tygon R3400 black?

If you are using a colored coolant, why not go with clear tubing such as the Primochill Advanced LRT Clear?

I don't like the look of black in a clear "shelter" I want the build to be as black as possible that's why smile.gif

Pastel is pretty opaque, you won't have that "clear shelter" look. This way you can also check for air bubbles while bleeding- especially annoying air bubbles trapped around the CPU/MoBo blocks. But if you want a black tubing, the go to soft tubing is Primochill Advanced LRT. Give Norprene a look as well- it is matte, kinks easier and has a much different look.

Ye well the main question is which is the best tubing, i don't want a tubing that react aggressively with the coolant.

You should be good with either, but the Advanced LRT has had a lot more people (including me) using it without issues so far. Just be careful with flushing your loop with a buffer solution before using the black pastel- it is sensitive to pH and the color can crash out. You can talk to people in the Mayhem's thread for more specifics, I don't have any experience with that product specifically.
