Primochill vs Masterkleer ~4months use
 
So after 4months of 24/7 use at full load for majority of the time I tore down one of my loop to take some parts out, water temp varied from 29C-33C depending on the ambient, I was running distilled + pt nuke + mayhems deep blue dye.

The masterkleer tubing is slightly thinner wall'd but it's obvious there was a major issue with plasticizer leech while the primochill tubing ran in the same loop was free from any buildup of any sort besides very faint dying of the walls. Just thought I'd share that :bananafunky:

did clean your rad before using it?

Doesn't matter. Pretty much all tubing besides Primoflex has platicizer in it. It helps to prevent kinking, although it gunks up loops and clouds up tubing. I've tried almost every clear tubing I've been able to find (including most Tygon) and it all is crap besides Primoflex.

I get clouding with primo flex as well as tygon. Impossible to clean if it's extremely bad. If not to bad you can place it in hot water roughly around the tubes max temp for a few minutes and it will clear it up some what.

Yes it will still cloud. But not nearly as bad as others.

Tube place directly after a CPU block seems have less issues with plasticizer, than the rest of the loop. Just my observation.

another observation of mine; 1/2" ID tubing has an issue with plasticizer well before 3/8 ID tubing.

Are you guys just using pure silver kill coils or adding other additives to your liquids which is causing it to cloud?

Since its release I've been recommending Primoflex only.

Everything else is just way worse.
