PETG Tubing VS Acrylic Tubing Pros + Cons - Page 12

I see it listed at Highflow in the netherlands:

Should make the rounds to lots of places before long. Here's a recent press release:

I do like the look of those fittings. Look like Bitspower.

Great video doing the side by side l3p. There's nothing like smashing some acrylic then seeing the results on PETG, it's clearly a more durable tubing. It's always good to have options for everything, including tubing. Drougnor over at the Zoo did some extended UV testing with PETG (thread titled "PETG tubing, UV and YOU!"). 4 months of UV LED exposure with a 24/7 on time yielded no discoloration/brittleness in the PETG. It's important to note too that a UV LED light won't have the full spectrum of UV radiation that natural sunlight has, this will make PC applications more stable. I think as more time progresses people will clearly see there is no issue to PETG and in fact there are many benefits over acrylic.

If UV light from leds would harm people ... I would've been burned to ashes by now. Have UV leds in my desk for 4.5 years now smile.gif
I'm glad it has no effect on PETG too!

yes just been on the site, although dont look as nice, question for people here where can i get a set of screws for the bitspower mod kit i know there m3 x 12 but not sure if there button head or flanged, has anyone a link so i can check out, thanks:thumb:

Don't think there ever will be. Both have pros and cons. Comes down to what you value the most.

The real question is.. how long will it take a PETG tube to start to such much water it is cracking !!! if it's more than 1 year.. isn't that how much we will be changing fluids anyway !!!

The only thing that worries me is the lower temp and pressure resistance. In an emergency both of those things are very possible in a water loop. I've seen soft tube compression fittings slide off because temps got too high. I've seen pumps pop from their housings because pressure got so high. Because of that I don't want the lower temp and pressure deforming tube.
Outside of freak high temp and pressure conditions or using the inside of the system to test out that new gothic pointed mace you picked up for GOT Cos play ... No real differences.

To me it just seems a bit like the smaller water cooling companies trying to find a point of differentiation from the big boys Bitspower and EK. Even if isn't that realistic.

Already happened on the ModZoo,a guys pump failed and the tube got hot and malformed to the point of near breach.

The idiots on there then proceed to tell the guy thats it was PETG superior strength that saved the day...doh.gif They conveniently gloss over the low forming temp......or the fact that it can be cold formed.....not a clever idea idea with no inserts in the tube.

Also,while videos are being made....

And no BS hammer 'test' in sight......

Bneg my friend, as one of the idiots from the zoo who made that statement, I will say the following:

PETG Vs Acrylic, all comes down to what fittings you have, and what size tubing you are using. I have more builds running Acrylic tubing, then PETG. I have had a tight acrylic bend cause damage to the blocks instead of breaking, and I have also seen acrylic tube breaking with very little pressure. Don't think there is anything known as a foolproof solution when it comes to water cooling. Even AIOs can leak from what I have heard, does not mean people don't look for alternatives.

I guess metal tubing like copper is the best if someone has any acrylic vs PETG concerns.

Impressive video by the way.... and on a light note - you sure thats not PETG lol....
