No, I mean if you do get the compression fittings I recommended for you to get.. Why get 7/16" ID and 5/8" compression fittings when you can switch it all out for 1/2" ID 3/4" OD.
Compression fittings are technically fittings with an integrated clamp. If you were going to pay $4 for a single clamp, I recommended for you to get a $4 compression fitting; that way it would look cleaner and possible have a tighter hold on the tube.

The 200mm ones or the fans that come stock with the kit? I'll definitely be replacing the stock fans but am not sure what to replace them with so a particular type recommendation would help a lot.

I heard a lot about a certain fan that is great for this but they're sold out everywhere because of the Japan quake?
I meant to replace the stock 120mm that comes with the kit. Those "special" fans are Scythe Gentle Typhoons, and they are butthurt expensive. You can pick up some Yate Loon High Speeds for nearly 5x less than the Gentle Typhoons Only thing you will lose is the epic silence

I've heard some people have been having motor whine issues with newer GT's. I'll find out in a couple days when my 5 AP-14s and one AP-15 come in.

Hope I didn't waste money.

In all honesty I think the Yate Loons are the way to go. Unless you have the money to spend $100 on fans alone, lol. Some high speed Yate Loons run about $5 each and are just as good but only a little louder.

Yeah I found some Yate Loons, so Yate's are solid?

If so I'll probably just get them, oh and before I forget I was wondering what type of thermal paste should I get?

I plan on water cooling my GPU eventually so I would like some thermal paste that I can apply to a video card aswell, I remember reading that the thermal paste needed to be conductive or non-conductive or something along those lines.

If anyone has some insight on what I'm trying to get across (lol) I would appreciate it.

Please let us know if your fans have the whine or not. I'm on the edge of purchasing several but if they have a whine I won't bother.

Where are you getting the Yate Loons from?? And for TIM I would recommend Shin Itsu, MX-3, and Arctic Silver 5 (In order from best to worst). There are better ones but I don't recommend them for new people and they also can damage chips when trying to remove the heat sink if not done right. It doesn't really matter if a TIM is conductive or not if done correctly. Most people go with non-conductive for safety reasons but the best TIM is conductive because it's pretty much liquid metal giving the best thermal transfer.

Yeah I'll go with the Yate Loons but I'm still not understanding the compression fittings thing, do the 1/2" ID 3/4" fit all of other tubes?

Sorry I'm like SUPER new to this stuff so I might be missing a very simple picture lol, bare with me please. <3 If they're the same price and work better then I'll definitely get the compression fittings.

That's where I'm getting the Yate Loons from, I already have a tube of Arctic Silver 5 so I'll just use that I guess, unless it's really bad for whatever reason lol.

@ Necrodox: Please un-check the "bold" when typing a response.
it kind of come off as yelling in a forum. Also not very appealing to the eyes when reading regular to bold text.

Thank you.
(I can't be the only one thinking this )

But other than that you are looking good with the setup.
post #19 of 34
I can't stand the clamp design in the RASA kit, I'll be getting a bunch of these from Koolance, pick your size, and you're golden!

EDIT: Yes, the bold must stop. We can read you just fine.

$4 per clamp???????? What are you thinking, son??

You must match the the inner and outer diameter of the tube to the compression fittings you get. Buska's link is for fittings that work with 1/2" ID and 3/4" OD (ID=inner Diameter, OD=outer diameter) tubing.
Edit: The kit you linked to uses 1/2" barbs with 7/16" ID tubing. 7/16" tubing fits over 1/2" barbs, but since the fit is so tight some people neglect clamps in this scenario. If I were you I would just use some zip ties, they are cheap and work well.
