Will 7/16 ID 5/8 OD tubing cause restriction?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I will be running a loop for my CPU and a separate loop for my GPU's

ALl of my waterblocks are HF MPC655 pumps for each./

Will 7/16 ID 5/8 OD tubing cause restriction?
post #2 of 18
I use that size tubing, and I don't see how. The blocks are way more restrictive than the tubing. Water will flow through them way faster than the block. Not to mention its just very slightly smaller than 1/2 ID which is about as big as it gets traditionally.

I have used both 7/16 and 1/2 in the past there was no difference in performance.

The only places the you need to worryabout restrictions are blocks, and rads -but they aint very restrictive at all.

Thanks for your input. I have been trying to find BitsPower Compression fittings that will be compatible with this kind of tubing but i get very confused as to what will be compatible or not. I have searched on Bitspower website and other websites and i dont think BitsPower makes fittings for this tube size. What do you think?.......Am i right? Do you know which Size Compression fittings i will need for this tubing?

Thanks

If you use compressions, I don't see the point in using 7/16 since it's just for a tighter fit on the barbs. For barbs: 7/16:3/4 and for compressions: 1/2:3/4.
