Issue with watercooling tubing and Case rubber reacting with each other

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've just finished a build and I've found that, for some reason, the tygon tubing I have is turning a brownish-yellow (mostly brown though) where the tubing either comes into contact with or sits very near to, the rubber edging in the Caselabs STH10 magnum case I have.

From what I can see, the discolouration is on the outside of the tubing, not the inside. The discolouration happened when the water loops were empty, so I know it wasnt what was in the tubes that caused an issue as all that was in the tubing was air.

Has anyone ever seen this phenomenon before? Got any advice on why it has happened and what to do about it?

I bought by tubing from a laboratory suppliers and it is laboratory grade tygon tubing that should not react with anything in my case, certainly not rubber.

Its certainly not anything to do with my waterblocks as the discolouration happened when the loops were empty of liquid.

Any advice? I'm worried it will cause issues.

This is the first time I've ever heard of such a phenomenon. Can you provide photos?
