I have my new build right around the corner and as I went to look for red tubes I was a bit disappointed with what I saw. Looking around at Fesser or Primochill, XSPC, whoever, it seems that all the offerings are clear red, or you can see the inside of the tube. I am looking for a solid version much like white or black tubing, and I am striking out bad at the moment.

If anyone knows of any around, please pop in a link.

This is what I do not want....


More like what I am looking for (of course in red)...

That looks like a solid lead, now if I can only get him to appease me and not take 10 days to get it to me:)

I have used RIT dye on stuff like this, its what I used to turn the X-Frame yellow bits black, but it leaves the tubing still able to see through it:(


Also, I won't be ordering until later tonight, so if you have any other links feel free to continue posting them:)

You ever had any in hand? I'm wondering if these are too bright (more to orange) and wont match the Asus board that well, and maybe I should just go black or white.:confused:

I have not, but go look at the local hardware stores I am pretty sure the Lowes near me carries red opaque PVC, but in the wrong size (1/4?) the color should be the same. I strongly doubt it will be orange, but it will be a very bright red. I for one think that black compression fittings with opaque red tubing will look very nice and different.

red fittings, black tubing. +1.


Why fuch around? Not that muc hred on board, GPU, or whatever blocks u buy for the card. hints of red on board, board heatsink, pump...

I wouldn't even do full red sleeving.

NEvermind red fittings, anodized, might match the board cooler great too. Unless you watercool the board...but I dunno why ya would bother except for looks. VRm can do like 1200W, CPU needs about 120W. :roll:

that means I got to buy fittings and tube, I was just gonna stretch it on 1/2" fittings as the only thing I am cooling is the CPU will the Apogee Drive II.

Sticking with black leads in the TJ11, but I do only really see two fittings on the block, may be worth it for the bling factor. What looks sexy and still works in fittings?

@ dave directly....I don't have a CPU cooler that will look good on there for air coolers, and the swifty block has a red LED...lol

Those monsoons are more of an electric red aren't they? Koolance looks like they will work, but no red:(

I'm also leaning to maybe white since all the tabs and clips are accented in white, too much?

It's a electric type red.. not a bold red like you want.

Edit, You can all ways buy the white Monsoon's and spray them red up top, with white accents...

I liked them, but you gotta check how you tighten them.. if you do to tight, your going to have fun taking the loop apart.
