The Rasa kit comes with barbs but many people prefer compression fittings, they work equally well though.

The tubing is just lower quality masterkleer tubing, it has clouding issues (because of a plasticizer in the tubing). I would recommend that you replace the tubing with Primochill tubing, it is definitely worth it.

you will have more involvment getting a custom loop choosing what res, pump, blocks, rad, tubing and fittings planing out the loop.
With the kit you pretty much have it done res/pump drivebay, rad with your case in the top only thing you need to think about is gpu block and tube routing

Depends on if you want barbs or compressions. If you go for barbs then use 7/16 ID tubing and 1/2" barbs (great combo and looks nice). For compressions get the same size tubing as the compression fitting (i.e. 1/2" ID tubing with 1/2" compression fittings). The most common sizes for compression fittings are 1/2" and 3/8." Performance differences are minimal so just pick the one that looks better to you.

Any size you want. I personally use 1/2'' ID 3/4'' OD

Does OD matter much when picking tubing?

With compression fitting why does od matter? Will I have to change tubing for it or is it simply when I fit it on one of the parts.

Compression fittings are designed to clamp down on the tube from the outside as well as being pulled over the inner barb. Something like this...



The tube's ID and OD must match or the compression fitting might not be able to do it's job properly. Taken from Triangle's post here --> http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...ngs-barbs.html
