    Euphoria reacted to Ryoku in Does PETG tubing cloud/plasticize more or less than soft tubing???   
    gimme a second I'll go take a picture of some used PETG tubing i have laying around that I use red fluid in.
     
    Edit: don't have a proper camera proving hard to take a picture of the difference it keeps coming out looking worse then it really is.
     
    edit2: left tubing is a unused failed bend and the right one is the one that was used for a year., you can see the slight clouding.

    Just be careful when buying Coolant. Not all are PETG safe, Most if not all are safe with acrylic.

    [Second Update]
     
    I posted a direct reply to a TomsHW forum mod that had directly posted @myusername explaining why he thinks I should stay and not delete my account and data.
    So I took the time to explain my reasoning behind it and how I felt, I thought I'd done a good job, I wasn't rude or argumentative at all, this was the post:
     
     
    And... it was instantly deleted by the mod Mousemonkey with the message: (the same mod by the way that has deleted most of my posts recently)
    "Okay, we get it you want your account deleted and I'm sure someone will get around to it at some point. No need for off topic walls of text, any more will just be deleted."
    So this is Tom's Hardware now, a few mods are still cool and will try to engage in polite conversation with members, you take the time to reply and another mod comes along and says "F**k you! Everything you post, even polite helpful things I will instantly delete because we disagree about something and because I can."
     
    [Edit] and he deleted all replies asking why my post and everyone else's has been deleted. Haha, he seems to be on a personal mission to delete everything that doesn't suit his narrative.

    I started a thread on TomsHW UK yesterday morning asking the mods/staff if the UK site was independent like TomsHW.de or could we be seeing nonsense like this "Just Buy It" article on the UK site soon? I didn't think that was rude or unfair, I wasn't asking staff to comment their own opinions regarding the paid Nvidia advert *cough I mean unbias article that might get them into trouble, it was merely a; do you operate like TomsHW DE or are you managed by the US side of the company?
     
    I just thought the first thing that happened was funny and showing the start of what was to come. I received an official warning for profanity for my single use of "bs" and my post was edited by the mods - I used the abbreviation "bs" as I thought that was more suitable and shouldn't offend anyone, especially as I've seen it used thousands of times on the site with no issues over the years, but apparently, that's worthy of an official warning now.
    Anyway, then it started. A few members began posting their own opinions on this article, no one was flaming, no one was swearing, no wild unsubstantiated accusations, or anything hostile/rude, just simply - "I think it's rubbish and if the editor-in-chief is putting this out, then TomsHW is done for me." - Stuff like that, just civil opinions and thoughts.
    Sure enough, the posts started disappearing, being deleted by the mods.
     
    Long story short, after asking some mods/staff directly and not receiving any responses, except seeing more posts disappearing, I requested my account to be deleted. 6 years of recommending people to the site, trusting what they put out as unbias (as much as someone can be) and consumer orientated, hundreds upon hundreds of posts, getting to know(ish) some forum mods, dozens of their award badge thingies... gone with one insane, brain-dead article/paid ad.

    Tom's Hardware, for me at least, is now the tech website equivalent of the Daily Mail - write any old crap for clicks, views, and of course... paychecks.

    I'm not so sure it's just a case of people not being able to tell but rather being dismayed that a reviewer would have that opinion at all and advise people to buy a product before reviews, their actual business they are in. More a credibility issue which is something that is assessed all the time with all actions and so much easier to lose than gain.

    [Update] My thread and all posts on every thread from the past few days have been deleted by TomsHW mods this morning and I received another official warning about my conduct. Apparently, asking if TomsHW UK is independent of TomsHW US is against the forum rules and guidelines, literally, that is what they said, even though I posted in Forum Discussion/Feedback section, haha what a joke.
     
    It's also been roughly 40 hours since I requested my account to be deleted but it's still active, maybe they're overwhelmed with the numbers of account deletion requests.

    Agreed with Linus -- there is missing context that many of us are not aware of.
     
    Thank you Igor for providing us with a bit more information, and some further clarification, on this topic; greatly appreciated.
    I understand they would want to make things a "nice" as possible to prepare for the overtake, hence, the deleting of posts, bans, etc.
    It appears that this "whole staff panic mode" got a little over the top, though.
     
    Tom's Hardware is not completed in the ground, we still have you, and Tom's Hardware Germany! 
     
    EDIT:
    Even my comment/discussion question regarding to Ray Tracing, and followed by indicating I had been a registered member at Tom's Hardware for ~8 years now, seeing how things took a turn in recent days, and hoping to see Tom's Hardware U.S. recover and succeed, got removed. My response did not contain any foul language or direct criticism on the article. It looks like that is the end of it.

    So Tomshardware UK is the same as Tomshardware US. I also had some badges over there, earning them wasn't easy, when the best answer, 99.99999% of the time, will always go to a mod, even when you post first, and has the correct solution to OP's problem.

    EUREKA!! I have found the issue. Damn this is a huge weight off my mind, I was starting to think it was either my PSU dying or worse, my GPU that was failing.
     
    The Fix:
    The most simple of things... reseating the GPU, that's it. I can't narrow it down to an exact thing because obviously reseating the card meant doing a few things, but it was either: the PCI connection to the mobo or the VGA power cables from the PSU - I'm 99% sure it was the PCI connection, no idea why or how it suddenly started causing an issue but it's the only logical explanation as the VGA power cables were plugged in correctly.
    Maybe some magic fairy dust had worked its way in there and was causing a short, I dunno.
