Primochill: Primoflex Advanced LRT

Advances in tubing for water cooling have been slow over the last few years. There was a time where you went to the local hardware store and used whatever was on the shelf. Thankfully those days have passed as custom water cooling has been moved towards the forefront. PC enthusiasts created a demand that several smart companies were more than happy to fulfill. PrimoChill was one of those companies. Starting in 2001, during water cooling’s infancy they have produced more than a few innovations since that time. One of Primochill’s more recent products, Advanced LRT Pearl tubing, offers vivid colors, resistance to algae growth and the ability to make those hard bends. Advanced LRT tubing uses a special blend of PVC and Polymer resin that allows it to bend much more than previous tubing without caving in or twisting. Advanced LTR tubing comes in an assortment of colors including a Black Onyx, but the Pearl version comes in UV Purple, UV Yellow, UV Orange and UV Green. Primochill promises bright vibrant colors with or without a UV light. The thick inner walls are very smooth to decrease the chances of particles buildup and algae growth. This tubing should last a long time without fading or losing its inner wall strength. With the choices in colors, UV or not, clear or Pearl, Primochill’s Primoflex appears to have every build project in mind.   http://www.primochill.com
