Of course i'll work on the length smile.gif

On to constructive stuff.

This.

Switching the inlet/outlet will help and the coils will help if it matches the OD of the tubing (so that it fits snugly on the tubing, the stuff on there isn't doing any good at all). I'm pretty sure just giving a little bit extra tubing + switching in/out to let it bend a bit more would work even without proper size coils. antikink coils should look this on tubing

I'll go with 1/2" ID 5/8" OD red tube with 5/8" OD black anti-kink coil, i think it will look sexy biggrin.gif

I'll show you when i set it all together smile.gif

From what i see in the picture i think you should be fine with none of that silly coil and no silly fittings.

+1

None of your lines have any real bend in them except maybe the rad to CPU. I can't really see it in the pic well but it looks like a tight bend. You could ease that by swapping to the other barb on the rad.

This is what anti-kink really does.

It has 25% asthetics and 75% function. If you need it and want it to loog good, then put it on the entire loop. If you don't need it then get straight tubing.

Personally I think the 3/4 od is better than the 5/8 od as far as curves and kinking. Now the 7/16idx5/8od is a great tubing as well and my personal favorite size for tubing.

Reason I dont use the 1/2idx3/4od tubing is the barbs/fittings are more expensive(generally) and not all watercooling parts are compatible with them. I think 7/16idx5/8od will serve you well.

+1, it is thicker walled tubing that prevent kinks and thinnest diameter (given same wall thickness) which will turn the tightest. Thin walled tubing has weaker resistance for collapse/kink. 1/8 inch walls would be best, which is 5/8 OD 3/8 ID, or 11/16 OD 7/16 ID, or 3/4 OD 1/2 ID. Next best would be 3/32 inch walls such as 7/16 ID, 5/8 OD.

But since cathar showed the flow difference between 3/8 ID tubing and 1/2 tubing to be ~ 0.04 gpm (nearly immeasurable) and temperature difference to be 0.1C. I would stick with 7/16 as thickest ID, but prefer 3/8 ID, 5/8 OD myself.
