So I am gonna do an overhaul of my loop in the fall and am starting to plan everything so I can be ready when I get my funds in order. I currently have clear tubing with blue uv feser one coolant. I know for sure I am going to switch to distilled, silver and PT but I don't know what to do about the tubing. I am leaning toward black tubing so I am wondering what the best black tubing is? I have heard complaints about some of the black tubing looking purple and that would be a big no no.

Here are some pics of my rig, any suggestions will be appreciated.
P.S. there will be a EVGA GTX 480 in the loop as well as a 240 rad mounted externally.

Looking at the first picture, I wouldn't change it for the world. Until I checked the second one, where I noticed the color of the rest wasn't yellowish. What I would do, is just add a yellow CCFL, preferably yellow LEDs pointed at the mobo. But that's me personally.

The yellow light was just from the strange lighting in the room at the time.

Thank you all for your input but I have one more question. It is my understanding that the top of the line tubing offers features like dependability(without kinking) and anti-clouding. I am not going to have any super tight bends and the tubing is black so who really cares about clouding. So why should I consider feser or tygon when the primoflex looks exactly the same and offers the same performance for $1.90/ft?

For me, Feser states anti kink and didn't kink in my build.
I've never tried Tygon or PrimoFlex.
