Cheers for the reply, actually just got off the phone with Frozencpu and I'll probably not be using them ever again in the future.

When I asked the guy if he would check my specific order so I could remove something before shipping all he said was "What does it say on your account and what shipping option?" I told him it said "Packing" and in my account it said specifically they were still modding it (having sleeving done on some other things I bought), the guy shut me down and said "Fedex shipped this morning at 8 and we don't take returns on any liquids or watercooling equipment". Fair enough.

But then he actually dropped an F-bomb while on the phone with me when I told him what I wanted dropped off my order. He said "F***, Feser is our best selling coolant and you want to not buy it?".

Blah, I'll try the Feser, check it after 3 and 6 months, then probably go to distilled. Don't think I'm going to give Frozencpu anymore of my business though. I thought it was kinda funny after I hung up but seriously?

hey im a newb to water cooling and i just installed my first loop ever like 4 days ago (rasa 750 RS240) and i notice a very very slight hazing going on in the tubes. they used to be perfectly clear but now have a slight haze to them. but when i look into the res it looks completely clear. when i installed the loop from day 1 i flushed everything with distilled water, put a killcoil in the res and put about 10 drops of PT Nuke. is this a sign of algae ? is it from the tubes themselves? (im using the original 7/16ths tubes that comes with the rasa kit)

Also,
after installing the loop i learned about ppl adding a T into the line to make draining easier... i dont have that T and getting these tubes off the barb seems to be a pain. whats the best way to get the tubes off to do a flush without making a mess? like i said this is my first time going with liquid cooling so bare with me, thanks!

Go with the Primochill tubes from Amazon.

The tubes are coated with plasticizers that make the tubes more malleable and these plasticizers are what are causing the haziness of the tubes (they are crystallizing out onto the inside of the tubes, doesn't affect the res). This is a natural process.

Solutions? Buy plasticizer-free tubing from Tygon or using colored tubing (where this will be less noticeable) i.e. the primochill tubing mentioned in the above post

Adding a t-line is a good solution or you could also add quick disconnects to the reservoir or somewhere useful: http://www.frozencpu.com/cat/l2/g30/...sconnects.html

wow, fast response!
Thanks guys, for a second i thought i did something wrong, glad to hear its normal while using the tubes that came with the kit. ill probably get the colored tubes in time when i decide to flush or something.

1 more question! is there an easier way to get the tubes off the barbs lol? they seem to be stuck on there and i feel like there must be a trick or something to getting them off... heatgun maybe?

I figured out how to get the spreadsheet form working so people can add themselves.
BUT, it seem to want to add the new people to the TOP of the list.
Hmm.
