Default Orange Tubing

Hello to everyone!

I am currently trying to put up my first water cooling rig and I have an orange theme. My question is which of the many tubing give the best orange color w/o UV, just natural orange color. I will be using distilled water so I want the tubing to be very orange. Most pictures and videos online are UV orange so I want more input if there are even tubing that has good orange color that doesn't need a UV cathode. Thanks for the incoming inputs!

Afaik there aren't that many manufacturers that sell orange tubing. Feser and maybe Primochill.

I haven't personally seen orange tubing yet but the pictures online and even videos are UV reactive orange tubing.

OT: lowfat you mentioned on another forum where you have a build log for "Big Lianli" that you have sleeved youre tubing on previous builds. Do you happen to have pictures of those builds? I may have to sleeve mine if I don't find any tubing to my liking.

The only time I've used sleeving tubing is on Big Lian Li buy it isn't complete yet. You would be stuck with using 3/8" ID 1/2" OD tubing if you wanted to sleeve it. You won't find orange sleeving large enough to fit larger tubing.

Primochill makes by far the best tubing i have ever seen, not a fan of fesor one it hardens up over time.

Hopefully these pictures help. This is Feser UV Orange tubing with Feser UV Orange liquid inside beside Primochill ProLRT UV Blue. To me, it's not a really vivid orange, it's more of a yellowish orange.
