So, i will just go with the common 1/2" barb for the items and use 7/16" ID w/ 5/8" OD.Cathar said:Go with 1/2" OD barbs, and 7/16" ID tubing with 3/32" wall thickness (5/8" OD) over the barbs. Best of all worlds for your planned setup.
I would not use 3/8" ID tubing on the Laing D5, as you'll choke the pump inlet, which is bad.

Oh ok.. i think i will have to get it from them then. As for the barb thing, the 1/2" barbs that come on waterblock and rad r all on 1/2" ID or OD? They r on 1/2" ID ya? If they r, do i have to change them in order to fit 7/16" tubing in?Cathar said:US Plastic ship internationally. I live in Australia - they're where I got mine from.
Yeah, it's definitly a matter of taste.acascianelli said:To each his own, I think 1/2" ID systems give a [H]arder apeall to a watercooled system. But if you have a small case, or the blocks you want/have dont have 1/2" barbs then there is nothing wrong with 3/8"

lol. it's still in eo54's reply... reverse psychology works everytime.Cathar said:Huh? It is an on-line game. It didn't make a referral though in any way that I benefitted from. The link is gone now though just to avoid any confusion.
U have any setup of 7/16" pictures? Sorry to bother, but just don't wanna order n find out that it looks like 3/8"Cathar said:No - 1/2" is 3/4" OD, while the 7/16" ID tubing is 5/8" OD. May not seem like much, but it just appears much more slender.
