ALSO, i must say...if this kit is an enterence into water cooling....DAMMMMM!!!! I am loving 22C idle temps and 40c load temps at stock. ive had an h50, hyper 212+ a titan fenir(tested in top 5 of air coolers under $75) and none have ever kept any cpu this cool...SOOO looking forward to getting a job and being able to build more water cooling now that i know what to expect and what can be done and what is needed...the funny thing is i was so worried about leaks and all i do sometimes is look at my water level on the front res opening to make sure...havent looked inside in about a week.

Don't do it, condensation will form on your entire loop, dripping water all over your PC.

It will only get cloudier (hence, ugly) in the meantime. Keep an eye out for the water quality in the res. If that is crystal clear and nothing floating in it, you are still good.

If you feel the tubing stiffer than when it was new then it may be time to consider changing the tubing. The process does take time though... it is not immediate.

With time the tubing will degrade. It has to do with the plasticizers (material used to make the plastic soft and flexible) used in making the tubing. So far it seems to "grow" on the surface of the inside of the tubing and that's it. No reports so far of it detaching from the tubing and floating around in the loop (reason why to keep an eye out for water quality in the res). The big concern of this gunk detaching is that if you have seen the inside of a CPU water block, this gunk could get caught inside the block and degrade your cooling performance. Once again, no one has reported any issues so far but it could be a possibility. Always good to try and stay a step ahead of these issues and prevent them.

How to avoid? Well, mainly by buying plasticizer free tubing which is a bit more expensive. I recall only seeing clear tubing though. Kill coils nor biocides prevent this condition and it has nothing to do with the water you use. It's more the temperature of the water reacting with the surface of the tubing.
The tubing hasn't gone hard or anything and is still soft.. The water in the res is also crystal clear, it's just that the tubing is no long crystal clear. I was planning to go UV tubing next anyway, but I didn't expect problems with primochill tubing since it seems to be highly recommended.

I switched to Primochill red about 3 weeks ago and it is still clear. the stock tubing was clouding up within days (if not hours) of installation. By XSPC's own admission, the tubing supplier did not give them the quality they expected. That comment was given to me unsolicited BTW.

Here is what my tubing looks like after 3 weeks. I had to use the cell cam to avoid the flash. In this pix you can clearly see the outline of the components (RAM) and such through the tube. This would not have been possible with the stock tubing.

The stock tubing had an overwhelmingly noxious smell.. I just used it to help clean the radiator then threw it out. I can still see the ram and everything through my tubing, so I suppose I'm still good

Yeah... I think they sourced from a company called Watts. Big-time cheap tubing manufacturer in China. They supply Home Depot among others. I tried the HD tubing once and within hours it clouded up. I went back to the stock stuff. But you should be ok for awhile. you are going to want to upgrade the tubing once it goes from cloudy, to tan, brownish and even green... I call it the earth-tone tubing because thats the coloring it takes on.

Well I'm official now. Got my RX360 kit today. Everything is running smooth and I like it so far. Stock clocks running maybe a few degrees cooler than my Megahalems at idle. Anyhow a word of wisdom for future owners. Those fans that come with the kit are pretty good but VERY VERY fragile. I nicked my finger on one and broke one of the fins off . Anyway had a CM R4 on hand . Plan to put the GPU's under the next couple of weeks.
