even if i was putting 7/16 tubing in, id put some clamps on, since i dont trust magic

besides, i run comp fittings to avoid ugly clamps anyway

simply require hose clamps bigger than 5/8 inch to work perfectly. most hose clamps are bigger than 5/8 inch OD tubing unless your looking at miniature clamps, and can be tightened up to accomodate 5/8 inch OD tubing. although these arent a more universal fit, theyll be great for your tubing

hopefully someone else can help with clamps, since ive only ever run comp fittings, but nothing jumps at me saying they wont work
oh ok. so i only need to get those? do i need to get a 90 degree or a 45 degree barbs? and what is the difference between the diamond silver and the matt black barb? are the quality the same?

You obviously havent tried it then coz if you had you wouldn't be saying that. The only way the tube comes off it is when you cut it with a knife, seriously try it, its mad.

And to the OP, get what ever angle fittings you need to get your tubing curving right and looking awesome

Quality of the different surface coatings is the same, pick what looks best in your build.

I'd go for 1/2 barbs and 7/16 tube. I would highly recommend clamps also. You can never be too safe when you are dealing with water and expensive PC components. You may also find that it would be cramped to fit all of that into your case. I may suggest a 5.25" bay reservoir. XSPC makes one you can fit that pump into so you wouldnt require the top. Quick disconnects may be nice also to help drain your loop. I connected 2 sets to mine, one at the exit point of my XSPC/655 pump combo and one at the entrance.

yes, he forces tubing too small for the barb over and doesnt run clamps since the pressure of the tubing keeps it tight. i have seen many successful builds with this method but i dont reccomend it to anyone

Try it!!!

You have to heat the tube in boiling water to soften it enough to wiggle onto the barb. Then leave it to cool or do it under cold water and there is absolutely no way it will budge.

Looks epic too, so clean. And no ugly clamps

barbs on angles are only neccessary really if space is a minimum and is needed to avoid kinking the hose by bending it in wierd angles. the finish should have no difference, its just for people to match the color schemes of their cases

I use the same size barbs and tubing and I can get the tubing on and off the barbs without that much trouble. It does take some force to get them off but you have to be careful when you do it so you dont break anything. And no, you dont need clamps for that size tubing on those barbs but I use them anyways.

I'd say 7/16" on 1/2" is even more secure than 1/2" on 1/2" plus clamps. Way more secure actually
