Default Red Tubing?

it feels like i've been looking for ever to find tubing to match my fomula V, anyone know of any tube that's a nice deep or medium red, not an orange-red?

so far all i can find is;
PrimoFlex Pro LRT UV Red
Feser Tube UV Red

Having never seen any in person, I was wondering if anyone has and can let me know if any would match the ROG red, or if there is a tubing that will.

If all else fails I guess there's always black

I have the PrimoFlex, it is a lighter red. Probably not dark enough to match.

I have the feser uv red with Asus Maximus IV, and its not a perfect match, but still looks good.

Of course after putting water blocks on everything there isnt much red left on the board anyway.

If you want dark red, your best bet would be to go wo Mayhems blood red dye.

As some people prefer to not use dye, sleeving the tubing is another option.

If you use a sleeve that you can somewhat see through, with UV tubing it would be pretty cool.

Thanks everyone, I was hoping one of the two would look close, not a dead match, but close.

I'll have to look around for sleeving options, likely going to be 1/2 ID 3/4 OD, i don't see anything at daz so I'll check sidewinders and frozen cpu.

As for dyes, I'd prefer to stay away. even though Mayhems has a decent rep going for their dye, I'd still worry to much and need to check every month or two

Feser UV Red coolant in clear tubes is very close to the red on my EVGA Classified board. I've run it for over a year with no dye separation issues.

u can try dyeing the tubes using Rit dye. There is a thread on this on another forum. You can experiment and get the shade you want. There is a thread on this on another forum. Try googling.

P/S: Prolly only work for tubing that has a little bit of water absorbtion..which is most tubes

now that really is cool!

I'll probably end up going with feser uv red and see how close it is. I know I have about a foot of extra blue scrap tubing in a storage bin somewhere, next time I'm at the mart I'll check for some dyes.
