    I never lobby for this around here, but this should be a sticky.

    Very useful information for n00bs like me.


    Thanks BungZ!

      Good chart, altho nothing new here

      Acrylic rocks, petg suck. Flex mileage vary.

          Good to have this laying around. Could you add other liquid cooling products to that chart ? It would be fun to have a complete list of tubing/liquid compatibility to more than Mayhems products (Feser, Dazmode protector, EK Cryofuel, Thermaltake C1000, ...) .

            I was surprised to see that DarkSide PETG was better chemical resistance, that I was anticipated.

              The tests are entirely performed by Mayhems exclusively, so I doubt they would be willing to spend the time on studying liquids other than their own.

              but ya, great idea and well needed.

              perhaps we can find a way to get Mic to share his methodology to perform our own inquires.

                EEK!
                I dunno if i got a bad batch, but mayhems x1 premix stained my ekwb HD (acrylic) tubing.

                First I had, dye particle fall out / separation, i had to tear down my recent / newest build after building it. Mixing x1 UV was not advised apparently... Although i had 2 other bottles that had no issues prior and ran it for well over a year....

                I tore it down again (decided to work on another project) and with another bottle of X1 that I had, (this time strained 3 times) after a week new ekwb HD tubing had some significant staining....

                Take my experience with a grain of salt, could have been bad batches of mayhems that I bought, could have been an issue with the acrylic...

                All i can say is EKWB support is exceptional, they offered replacements without me even asking.. was just inquiring about compatibility. As for Mayhems support, they seemed indifferent, but at the same time I guess they were too busy dealing with their own issues, they got flooded and all i ended up with was radio silence... ah well
