ah ok. Thank you.

It's whatever tubing comes with the XSPC RASA kit so I dunno if it's plasticizer free or not -- doubt it because it was pretty flexible. Water is crystal clear in the reservoir so I'm not too worried about it. No case window or anything...

Does tubing generally get discolored like that, or is there some biological growth goin on that is contributing to the discoloring?

its your tubing, I suggest changing it lol.

it turns yellow / white and start to chalk up white inside of the tubing and may lead to possible clogs in the future.

i suggest getting duralene tubing,:

i suggest getting duralene tubing, its about 69 cents per foot, at sidewinder/ petras pc shop, and all you'll need is 5 ft

thank you -- was bout to ask what you recommend.

Teaser for the build log. I'm learning some frustrating lessons right now and ended needing to order more SATA cables because the ones I had were meant for my previous case and previous placement of drives. I also learned that you can't put a newer slim SSD or slim 2.5" HDD in the 2.5" slot of the Icy Dock; the lever arm that pushes the drive out when you eject it slides along the top of the drive and it won't come out unless you uninstall the dock and carefully pry it out. And I need a couple more 3-pin y splitters for fans.

Fun times.

What direction do you have the top fans blowing? in or out?

I have the top fans as exhaust. And yes, I can see you benefiting from something like this wink.gif. But you will need straight to straight sata cables. I was only able to hook up 2 drives so far (top 2 slots) because there isn't enough spacing between the ports for angled connectors.

Thanks! I actually have 2 sets of these speakers. I bought my first set on Craigslist for about $70 used, and then bought a brand new set shortly after within the last year. Very good speakers for the price imo. Check the reviews on Amazon
