Did you get genuine tubing or something else?

Idk. I left it in the box PPCs shipped it in for 3 months before opening it. Should have opened it when I received it! Waiting on Michael from Mayhems to send me an email. Gonna reply back since it's been about a week.

Ah yea, you should have at least gave it a quick look over. I really don't see why any of the tubing would fog up though, it probably shipped that way. It just caught my eye because it looked like you had some type of fluid in there. When I added my Mayhems X1 clear to my loop it clouded up my perfectly clear Distilled water just a bit, and it looked similar to your pics.

What!? Acrylic/PETG is so mainstream.. flexi tubing all the way tongue.gif

Either way is fine, just takes some dedication to do the hardline.

Nice combination, will you be using a dye to? Seems most people use the clear acrylic/PETG and a dye. Colored PETG will be different for sure.

Nope. I figure, I end up draining the loop about once a month on average so might as well just try the colored PETG out. This is what I bought:

Tubing: http://www.performance-pcs.com/primochill-1-2in-rigid-petg-tubing-36in-red-4-pack.html
Fittings: http://www.performance-pcs.com/rigid-revolver-compression-fitting-3-8-x-1-2-diamond-knurled-10-pack-anodized-black.html
Bending insert (not sure if needed): http://www.performance-pcs.com/acrylic-tube-tools/primochilll-3-8-id-rigid-tube-silicon-bending-insert-1-foot-for-1-2-od-tube.html
Reamer (not sure if needed): http://www.performance-pcs.com/acrylic-tube-tools/ppcs-acrylic-tubing-pipe-reamer.html

Just gotta get a mini hacksaw and heating tool from Amazon. I like the PrimoChill stuff though. I saw some builds with it and it looked really slick. Almost wanted to go with the white fittings but then it'd be red (chassis), black (rads and everything else), some yellow (from the OC Formula) and then white fittings. Wouldn't look that good IMO
