7/16 is better then 3/8 I would consider 1/2 to large (it looks daft) + 7/16 on 1/2 barbs is worry free from leaking.


Are you looking at any pump tops?

p.s. sorry about my spelling its not great

Alright, but I'm more oriented to compressions, despite their cost...

I will probably go for an XSPC Acetal top.

Trust me, I know your pain make sure you plan you loop out well so you know when to get the 45degree and 90degree ones.

Just something to reinforce since you have been getting a lot of good help from everyone.

Plan out the loop and make sure you know 100% what you want to get. Water-cooling can get expensive especially if you dont plan it out right. And do your research like you have been. Goodluck !!

You won't be using MCP35X then ? It's kind of pointless to change top with that one.

Really? I might as well get the MCP350. Do you think that this 9w kid would be good with a CPU/GPU loop?

Stock MCP35X top already performs almost the same as aftermarket tops, it has threads instead of integrated fittings like MCP350/MCP355 and you lose warranty when you change the top, that's why it is kind of pointless to change top with that one. MCP350 will probably be just fine for your loop but for that one you will need an aftermarket top to use compression fittings which brings price closer to MCP35X.

Clear, I'll keep the MCP35X then. +rep thanks!

Small update. I kept looking for tubing sizes and fittings, and I'm probably going to get black tubing with 3/8" ID and 1/2" OD, along with compression fittings of the same size.

Now my concern is, which flow scheme should I follow? I was thinkin' about: Pump (settled at the bottom of the case) > Rad (on top) > CPU > GPU > Resevoir > Pump. Do you think it might work well? Suggestions?

Actually, I think putting the rad right after the pump would kill the flow... is it true? On the other hand it would be a tube mess if I'd go directly to the CPU, GPU and then going back to the rad on top...
Ideas? I'm still a bit confused on this , any help would be greatly appreciated!
