Water Cooling tubing minimum thickness

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

I'm ordering some parts for my cooling system setup..

I have some 1/4" ID Tubing laying around and some compression fittings that fits exactly to the tubing with a 1/4" thread to be connected to the CPU Block & Radiator.

How should this 1/4" ID Tubing work?

It's OK but my experience was that it's a real pig to fill and bleed and it doesn't bend well. They must be tiny compressions, I used the plug n cool fittings.

Are you referring to these Festo Fittings?

They were similar to that but were the AquaComputer ones http://shop.aquacomputer.de/index.php?cPath=7_34_35 horrible little things but they worked 99% of the time.

Aren't they supposed to be for pneumatic lines?

I don't know. I bought them when I first started watercooling and didn't know any better. The actually work quite well the first time you use them but after you've plugged and unplugged them a few times they don't lock the tubing in place as tightly and a strong nudge/knock can pull them out.

I still have quite a few fittings that someone is welcome to.

Edit: I don't recommend them though.
