Thanks for the input guys. I have a few days before my new cpu block arrives, so I will decide then I guess.

I've used the older LRT version (1/2"id) probably about a half dozen times and never had any problems with stiffness or collapsing.

Did experience plasticizer leeching in the last batch, my hope was this stuff might clear out any gunk that had accumulated from that in the rest of the loop.

I've been running the 1/2 3/4 Advanced LRT without any issues. Mind you it's a thicker wall than you guys. No plasticizer or cloudy crap, and definitely no collapsing. It's been a big improvement over the shitty PRO LRT that was in circulation. If I used the sysprep I wouldn't keep it in my loop too long, just for a good rinse of the internals. Forgot where I saw it, but there was some dummy that left it in his loop for over a day and it ate his block internals.

Getting the compression collar screwed down; HA that was 100% impossible to even get the collar's own threads to start connecting with the threads on the barb using my hands, LET ALONE actually getting the collar screwed down. Maybe I too got a bad batch but I'm not impressed with the advanced LRT tubing
Silicone grease is the ticket for getting that 3/8 ID tubing over a barb. Lubricate the barb a thin coating and maybe also a bit on the opening of the tube. (Vaseline may work too, but vaseline is known to break down seals over a year or two, so I guessed the silicone grease is less risky in the long run.) Still took some muscle to get it on, but I could force it all the way down the barb once I got the barb inserted fully into the opening.

I never used compression fittings. Just pressure has worked for me. I don't use massive pump pressure though.

They say at least 12 hours with no upper limit and that having some residual when you refill with Utopia is not a problem. So I hope this isn't a problem. If "over a day" is a problem, they should warn.

If it eats my block internals I'll try to get them to give me an updated video card with block. My old 5870 isn't great by current standards anyway ...
