I was surprised myself. I didn't even wanted to order red tube at all, but Feser told me that it is top 3 seller and I must ... and it turns to be amazing color.

Another surprise is Yellow. Very tempting...

Need find time to get rid of that lousy Tugon tube, that looks awful right now... badly clouded...

Your thread enticed me to go with some black UV tubing. The primochill to be exact, after running feser for 2 weeks I'm already switching to distilled

White was super sweet choice (very bold), but I couldn't resist Acid Green and black combo, while getting also tempted by Silver, Blue and even Red... it was Royal pain!

Very nice looking! Definitely an engineer's accent if I ever heard one.

I hadn't realized that the EK block had issues with the o-rings, but I guess the small groove around the holes is what causes the problem, huh?

Exactly right, TFC fittings has thin o-ring that is sinking into that groove. I had pump at speed 5, so fountain was impressive!

My System Specs

Default

Koolance has a really good high flow flow meter. It is one I will be putting in my system soon enough as well. Would be cool to have my flow and water temps showing on my Alphacool LCD on the front of the rig. The cool thing about this flow meter is that it is straight and does not curve the loop any. Makes it very handy to integrate into a loop.

INS-FM17 Coolant Flow Meter & Adapter Board [no nozzles] - Water cooling systems, pc liquid cooling kit, cpu, video card, hard drive

But what is really good about a flow meter is safety. If you have it hooked to the mobo and set your BIOS so that once the RPM's drop below a certain level that the system shuts off saving your system from a flood if a tube popped off or some other mishap.

BTW Dazmode....Good video. Excellent quality!
