Skunkworks needs a little help...

Some of the tubes in Skunkworks have been around as long as the system has been in use, 4 years! Let’s see if we can figure out why they are getting cloudy.

So many people commenting about the loops being different shades of green.... this is what happens when you comment before actually watching a video in its entirely. 12:44

This demonstrates the benefit of using acrylic or glass! PETG can (and often DOES) deform over time. Acrylic and glass are: a) more transparent, b) more resistant to heat, and c) more resistant to glycols (which are found in almost all commercial coolants). While they ARE a pain to cut and bend, using acrylic or glass actually SAVES time in the long run, as the extra time spent creating runs is more than offset by the fact that they won't have to be replaced the way PETG (eventually) will.

I have seen similar build up with transparent colored fluid. I dont use colored fluid any more and my loop stays clean.

billionth video on how u have some gunk in ur tubes, im glad ive never water cooled ! what i would like to know is, would it be possible to include some kind of filter in your loop to collect gunk ?

I had the same problem Jay, build up in the fins and bottom of the pump and even the soft tubing, an here is what I did. Maybe this will help someone but I am sure I will get a lot of flack for using bleach. First I drained my system. then put a eye dropper of household bleach into distilled water. Filled my reservoir, c.p.u. block and what tubing I had an let them soak for a hour. Before emptying it I shock the blocks an reservoir vigorously, (to loosen the sludge), and then flushed it with more distilled water and it worked. I am using soft tubing..I don't know if hard tubing would turn out the same but it should. I used so little bleach that it hasn't affected any of the hardware (pump or compression fittings). By the way Jay, its because of your encouragement that I am using D.I.Y. water cooling, before I was using self contained or air. I am almost 70 years of age so all of this is new to me. My end results are I, am now using clear water an my temps are great. The coloring is just for aesthetics as we all know but I can live with clear.

You sure the liquid is not Brawno's ? "Brawndo's got what plants crave: It's got electrolytes!" maby its the electrolytes that gunk up the system ;D

Jay I won't preteen to know what's going om but to prove your point that's it the tubing do it loop out of glass and see if it still happens.

I don't know why but I thought you had glass tubing in that build. Either way. The build is very nice.

To eliminate the issue of opaque fluid, an alternative is to pour opaque paint through all tubes, but not any blocks or pumps to opaque paint the inside of the tubes while retaining the clear outer layer, then use a clear liquid with no settling issues. Paint selected should be resistant to water damage such as an automotive oil based enamel. Dry clean air will need to be circulated to dry the paint inside the tubes. Use Neon colors for use with blacklight. The clear covers of the water blocks can be painted inside with the gasket areas masked to show the fluid channels, but do not paint the actual heat transfer surfaces.

Had the primochill opaque colbalt blue in my rig for about 2 months. Tried using the mayhem blitz cleaner to flush it out... No dice. It may be easy to remove from the tubing, but it gets in the blocks pretty good

Just use opaque tubing and clear liquid man....Why don't people do that I don't get it? Either sand it down with a soft sanding pad or buy opaque tubing like the Eisrohr satin from alphacool. They even scatter RGB in a nicer way.

phthalates are mainly used in pvc. even if it is hard pvc it will contain small amounts of phthalates. and phthalates will leach.... they also use phthalates in a lot of other plastics but not in acrylic. hence acrylic tubing is a s"safe bet" not having anything leaching from it. a soft tubing has a high chance to have phthalates. still the question is, whether the phthalates have any impact on the fluids used in a loop. they are more like an oil. if there are emulsifiers in a liquid these could also emulsify phthalates leading to the feeling of residues of a very fine sandpaper.... i guess the safest way is to stay with simple transparent liquids...but will you miss the kick of the colored milky look? 😉

My guess is you're using too high temperatures to bend your tubes? Causing the tubing to degrade?

This is the reason why you should use acrylic. Forget the bullshit about "its harder to work with" or "it is so fragile". My first project was acrylic and it was pretty fine if you work with the needed precision. So, stop using this marketing bullshit petg crap.

I still do no understand why you still use colorent in your water, when you know that you get a build-up in your water cooling system, why not use letjes to color your water or just not use colors?

Is there a way to use inline filters to remove this stuff. For some weird reason I started thinking of the fuel filter I replace in my car a week ago... Why can't it be done with computers as well?

Every time I take my system apart, I have that weird tube compression around the compression rings. I'm using all EKWB with PETG tubes. I just thought it was normal to have to remake the tubes each time you took your system apart.

is it possible the fluid is eroding the tube itself and little particles of the plastic is building up?
J0my 27 gün önce
This was a great video, reminds me a bit of TTL in that you had a bit of a chat with us and gave lots of helpful advice with maintenance. I actually like seeing maintenance done as you can see how to actually do it, it also struck me that if you need to redo the tubing, just do it. If you can afford to do liquid cooling and hard tubing in the first place you should allow for having to potentially redo the tubes.

So, these plastic tubes are probably PET(Polyethylene Terephthalate) with some resin additive, so essentially the same as soda and water bottles, WHICH DEGRADE WITH HEAT OR UV exposure overtime. Considering the deformation under that fitting connection, It's probably just heat degradation, unless the fluid has some hydrocarbon chain with some solvent function, such as aldehyde.

One of these crazy PC youtubers (Jayz, Linus, etc.) should go balls to the wall and find a glassmaker to build glass tubing for a build. It certainly wouldn't be cheap, and it would probably be difficult, but it would avoid some of the issues that plastic tubing presents if done correctly

To melt PET, you would have to reach extremely high temps (>200C) for what you would see in a PC. PET can withstand higher temps, Nylon even higher temps. This is why auto manufacturers can use plastic in vehicles. Also, Acrylic IS plastic. Please, for the love of God, stop saying Acrylic is not plastic.

If the tubes are under pressure with hot fluid, they’re gonna expand at the fittings like that. It’s just like a radiator hose on your car. Eventually they burst. You said they were old, I wouldn’t think that was a chemical reaction, just a function of age and use.

Just use treated distilled water...I know the build is meant to be green themed, but you could always get the glamor shots then clean it out. Kyle did that for his Hotline Two build to preserve the tubing.

Been using distilled/deionized all my life and never saw any gunk or shit like that ever in any of my countless loops. By using so called "additives" you're asking for trouble.

that guy who said his tube melted with fluid in the tube is full of shit. you can boil a plastic bottle of water over a camp fire and the plastic will only soften not melt.
