Why would you want to use coolant with black tubing anyway? All you are doing is putting additional items into the equation that can foul your setup. I have used distilled water and PK Nuke for years and the only time I have ever seen any corrosion or goop buildup was in the corners of my clear resevoir and a little ketchup cleaned that right up. The old saying applies here...... "Keep it simple".

Durelene seems to be the best at the moment.. As far as I know plasticizing only really affects the loop cosmetically and shouldn't really degrade performance. If your coolant is yellowing however I would obviously switch tubing. My rig has been up since July with clear Durelene and is still crystal clear...

one more thing, the oil also help to lubricate the pump as well. no it doesn't affect my temps thumb.gif

lol running OIL in your water? are you trying to create an emulsion? might as well run automotive coolant - it actually mixes with water...

Loop is only two months old. Pretty upset about this.

What am I looking at?

The area circled in red is the way the tubing looks brand new, and how it's supposed to look. The area circled in yellow and kind of grayed looking is the plasticizer build up.

I was recommended durelen, and its dirt cheap too! Look on sidewinders

SingularityComputers has done a comparison video on different tubing and how fast/much different tubing gets cloudy.
