Question Tygon Tubing ? What Type ?

Hi All,

Firstly I hope I've got the right catagory.
Secondly please dont flame me yet. Yes I used the search button.

I've read plenty about tubing and choices. Im interested in Tygon tubing. But when I've searched about it I keep seeing the word in red.

Whats the actual model number of the prefered Tygon tubing used when it comes to water cooling use in PC's ?

Their website doesnt have a catagory for mad overclockers

http://www.tygon.com

Cheers

Hehe , the word was showing up red because that's what you searched for, the forum highlights the searched words for you

I'm not too sure on the Tygon though, I don't have major turns in my hosing, so I don't need it. But a few shops here in Aus sell Tygon though, I just can't remember them off the top of my head

I must sound like a bimbo eh, Just to clarify, Yes I know the reason it shows up in red My point is thats all I find is red words and no info regarding the model or product number.

Goose AU,

Anyhows, thanks to you both for your replies.

PCCG USED to do tygon, but apparently they are getting clearflex in, because its cheaper and basically exactly the same

The 1/2 inch Tygon I use has R-3603 printed on it. I would, however, recommend getting Clearflex 60. I have both here and the only physical difference that I can see between the Tygon and the Clearflex is that my Clearflex has thicker walls, which means less kinking. Clearflex looks, feels, bends, and smells exactly like Tygon, but has a much nicer price tag.

dont hold me to this, but im pretty sure you are suposed to use the chemical tubing. If you live in the states i suggest you buy it strait from the source, a great site www.usplastics.com

I just spoke with my friend who knows a lot more than me about such things, he said that you should use the chemical tubing. "Tygon® Clear Tubing for Chemicals 5/16 inch O.D. thru 2-1/2 inch O.D."
