  • Yeah, rig looks sweet!, maybe the tubing you had was the earlier primochill stuff and not the advanced stuff.

    They have stopped making the older version, i've had no problems with the advanced stuff.

    As for other fittings i can't say, i've not tried many brands just some Alphacool, Bitspower and some Koolance quick disconnects, i'm going to be using the Bitspower ones for years to come and i'm not planning on switching.

    • I use Masterkleer tubing, for the money it's pretty good I find it bends pretty well, even though it's pretty thick skinned (so to speak) Definitely need to consider barbs but I have found that I get a white powder left in my system, I'm wondering what it can be.. Do I need to add something to the de-ionized water I'm using?

      • The White powder will be plasticizer, have a read of this post from OCN, particularly point 5 http://www.overclock.net/t/1380775/w...#post_19720009 .

        I only use a drop of mayhems biocide in my water, try the Primochill stuff and see how you get on.

        • Thanks for that Khemist I'll see how it goes with the Masterkleer stuff I have and as they are only being used a bit I'll invest in some better tubing when I get my new pump and res I'll try the Primochill tubing when I get my gaming rig sorted out
          Do you use anything with your liquid?

          • Just use D.I. water with one or two drops of biocide.

            • Maybe I should try adding some in just to see if that helps with the white powder build up.. I wonder.. Thanks Khemist

              • No change yet, next pic will be different tubing and fittings at least.

                  I don't think so, the biocide will prevent algae building up but not plasticizer leaching.

                    Just bought 2m of primochill advanced lrt clear, will it have that plasticizer leaching? Will 2m be enough for 2 rads, cpu, gpu and pump/res combo?

                    Starting off with one rad, cpu and pump/res combo so it should be enough for that right?

                    • No, it should be fine, 2 meters will be enough unless you mess up the cuts or you have a massive case.
