At this point I don't think any exists. Primoflex LRT use to be good stuff that took a long while to cloud up. However new batches cloud very fast.

Clearflex, Primoflex LRT, Tygon R3603, Tygon B-44-4X all clouded from my experience. I have some Tygon B-44-3 that I am trying now, but I won't have results for a while.

not 100% clear as i hear so far... most clear tube will cloud at minor to major... depend on brand... thats why we use color tube...

edit: okay lowfat beats me

hmm... I would've thought clouding tubing issue would've been resolved considering that watercooling has been around for a decade, vinyl tubing even longer.

If you needed to buy new tubing right now, what would you guys go for? Preferably thin walled, but thick walls are okay too.

I just go to the local hardware store and buy tygon hose, I swap it out yearly and dosen't get to cloudy in a years time... the vinyl fogged up in under 3 months in my loop with silver kill coil and distilled.

I'd would like to reccomend Primoflex LRT. However, there are terrible batches of this product in circulation. It's nothing like the amazing tubing Primochill is known for. I don't know if they've gone downhill or it's a temporary thing, but it's playing Russian roulette if you purchase it.

My Home-Depo vinyl hose is not clouding, might be my choice of coolant, Feser1.
