Pipe fill with cables is a PITA.

Had a stupidvisor years ago that would not buy anything except for romex. He would want us to run 8/2 through 1/2" carrflex. Yes..it will eventually fit. Enough j lube, cuss words, and benditwisting you can do it. Thankfully the guy got fired before we could corner him and beat him with the carrflex.

Look guys here's the deal, 12-2 already ran around cinder block room in basement with outlets every so many feet apart, job is real neat going around the wall to each outlet, and PVC painted to match room. Everything complete just asking the question because heard from some it meets code and other's not code. Just an FYI question not a major problem. Never stated it was my job or not. Thanks.

ColdIron, I only use emt from the outlet up to the ceiling joists, to help protect the romex from damage in my basement. I have my outlets sitting aprox four feet from the floor, so if there is any flooding, they are up far enough. Unless it totally floods, which I do not see happening, due to I am on the top of a hill, and everything at the bottom tends to flood.
