Its low forming temp has already seen a near catastrophe for one poor Modzoo member, the guys that pushed this product then claim it was 'the superior strength of PETG that saved the day' rather than the low forming temp being the cause.

didn't that guy discover that his pump wiring was garbage and caused his pump to turn off? I'm not saying petg is great or anything, but that is pretty much the only bad example I've seen around, from looking around to a limited extent. He also said he had to "assist" the tubing into the fittting since it didn't line up well to begin with. Kinda seems like there was plenty of user error in there to make it questionable as to weather it was the petg's fault or not. If this happened more frequently then I'd be more worried but I can't say that I see it as a deal breaker.

Well even if his pump went off from bad wiring, the fact that your everyday joe can suffer with a pump malfunction where it will stop working during a gaming session means this can happen to anyone i suppose?

If you game then you may not even here the pump acting up or not notice the coolant no longer ciculating.

PETG might be good, but when the cost of both PETG and Acrylic is so small, im happy with Acrylic for the time being.
