post #91611 of 107062
Ok.. so finally have the system up and running again after cleaning.

Something I noticed yesterday after viewing some photo's I made with the telephone of the build.... I had the inlet and outlet of the cpu block wrong all the time (like 6 months). doh.gif Weird thing is, the temps were actually pretty good. Hope I didn't put excess stress on the block by doing that. Anyway, sorted it out by just switching the inlet and outlet of the pump, as the pump is (almost) the highest point of the loop I only had to take half a liter or so of fluid out of the loop.

I had ordered a meter of new clear tubing to replace the white tubing, half the tubing was clear.
What do you think of the result?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



I almost scratched my head of trying to think of a way to rearrange the loop to use less tubing... but I keep bumping against the fact of the placement of the second rad. If I turn around the top rad I have to put the return tube from the front rad through the back of the case to the reservoir.

Funny thing is also that the radiators were practically clean, some very small particles came lose. The CPU block on the other hand had some gunk in it. Cleaned it with a soft toothbrush and some ketchup. tongue.gif

What did bother me though was the state of the clear tubing that was already in the build. Look here, what is it?

The top one is new, the one going in the case is the old one (6 months or so).

Looks like plasticizer. But how? I only used distilled (de-ionized), 2 drops of dead-water and Feser Corrosion blocker. Tubing is Primoflex Advanced LRT, I thought they improved it over the Pro LRT...

Was considering this case quite seriously but there are two hang ups for me. Your build looks amazing and clean, of course.

Can you by any chance show how you have the PSU power cable hooked up and routed?

The only other thing is that I absolutely must have easy USB access to my system and modding that up to the front panel to look stock would be out of my realm, I'm afraid. Any suggestions for an easy way to accomplish that?

Had the same experience exactly with Primochill LRT Advanced. Several times, actually--and went to acrylic eventually--problem solved.

I just can't/won't believe it is always happening to clear tubing. I've read across the web of people using Advanced LRT tubing and not having an issue at all. Even after 2 years of usage....
Maybe I will contact Primochill to see what they think of it.

Hey guys, I recently ordered an EK Xres 140 res/pump combo , and it
Comes with this mount: https://shop.ekwb.com/ek-uni-holder-d5-v2

I was wondering if anyone knows what drillbit I would need to mount this to my case? I was told that a 3/16" bit would work. Can anyone confirm this?
post #91617 of 107062
Nope. Doesn't just happen to clear tubing. I can vouch for that. I've only used white tubing and it popped up in my system within 6mos of use.

Advanced has had it happen too. wermad posted about his experience with PCALRT tubing in the Plasticizers thread.

It's heat that activates the stuff. +35c iirc. thinking.gif which is why I am hardline and then Copper tubing. thumb.gif

I heard that Mayhem's new clear tubing works really well. Cheaper than LRT also.

I'm sure it happens to all tubing, but with the colored tubing you just can't see it and the colored UV tubing keeps its UV unlike UV coolant that loses it over time.

I have it. Well, the res/top combo, still had an d5 laying around. It uses m4 bolts so I would say take one m4 screw to the story and buy a drillbit that matches the shaft. Simple enough, right?

Sucks.

Out of curiosity I decided to cut a piece of the old white tubing so I could see the inside. Was still as good as new, nothing like the clear tubing. When I scratched my nail over it there was no stuff coming of what so ever. The white Advancert LRT was more then a year old FYI.

And about the temp. I am pretty sure I never ran it above 35c. Mostly the water is around 32-33c max. As we speak the water reads: 25.5c with all fans on lowest. That's probably around 3-4c Delta.

Yeah, I will probably switch to hard tubing sometime. I hate it to buy every fitting again though. And the tools to bend and all. But I do look forward to learning it.

Thanks for the tip but I don't really want to switch everything AGAIN.



By the way:
I did send a support ticket to PrimoChill just now. Explaining my situation and asking if this is normal.

Also. How is it looking?

Only thing standing out is the PSU. Maybe I will just try to tear off the sticker. Damn you blue. tongue.gif
