Ah snef... that S3 has "so much winning" that for a minute I thought Charlie Sheen had an account on OCN. biggrin.gif Really like the way it turned out - and some fantastic lighting in it too. thumb.gif

That's because it doesn't have plasticizer in it... it's super stiff but at least it doesn't clog your blocks with cottage cheese the way the Pro does. wink.gif

Ahah! That's why I almost gave up on assembling my loop. It's super hard to squish into those tight places. I might have to redo with rigid tube in some tight areas.. Damn it.

I had to put mine in a pump box to make it bearable.

yer i know, i had 2 in the dual and it was a bit OTT, with the controller its not too bad.

with my new build space is a little tight, and this will fit, it may get some sound proofing on the side panel

It's actually pretty easy to work with if you know the secret... get a pyrex measuring cup... and microwave some water to very hot (but not boiling)... take it with you to your build... dip the ends of the tube you're about to place into the water for about 10 seconds... and voila... it slides right on without any fuss whatsoever. biggrin.gif I used it in my build and had some very short runs that still worked great doing it that way.

I tried doing that with my build but the hot water didn't seem to help much.. rolleyes.gif

I'm seriously contemplating on getting other tubing next time.

Well, I figured that's just the tradeoff you have - the XSPC tubing I had before was super soft and pliable (i.e. had plasticizer) and was good - as in it didn't leech plasticizer all over the place - but it also didn't feel as 'snug' on the fittings. With this stuff I'm sure I didn't even need to use the compression sleeves... it was so tight on the barb inside it probably would have held... and on the barbs where I used them I didn't have to worry about adding rings or ties to keep them in place despite not using slightly larger barbs than the tubing ID as you normally would. biggrin.gif

Definitely was more work to put on... but I'm not worried about it coming off or leeching plasticizer - to me the peace of mind was worth the extra 20 minutes or so it took to plumb my system. (And I'm running 3/8IDx5/8OD so it's even stiffer than the 1/16" sidewall stuff). biggrin.gif

It took me hours to get the tubes in. Maybe I did something wrong..

Oh WOW! ohno-smiley02.gif Either something was really wrong or your tubing was much worse than mine! Basically once I had the ends heated I just had to push them on one side of the fitting and then kind of rock them back the other way while putting even pressure on the side that was over the fitting lip already (to make sure it didn't pop back off). I had to do that a couple of times to get the tubing all the way down to the base of the fittings but I'd be really surprised if it took me more than 4-5 minutes per section of working it back and forth. On the shorter pieces I kind of had to do a 'milking' action to stretch it over the second fitting - but that didn't take very long either.

I wonder if your tubing wasn't made quite right or something... sounds like the ID wasn't accurate - either that or they mismarked the package maybe.

Mine worst, it took the whole day to finish my rig. Plus the mind crunching to figure out the tube route.

Really neat sir! I envy you for that short runs. What size of your tubing if I may ask?

Well, if we're including loop planning (and changing my mind in the middle - then re-planning all over again) then yes, it took me two or three days to finish my loop... but it took only about an hour and a half to actually plum the loop itself (22 fittings on 11 segments IIRC) so on average I guess it took me about 8 minutes per segment or so.
