Need help, new to watercooling! - Page 2

post #11 of 12
The tubing that comes with the kit is 7/16 ID but the fittings are supposed to be 1/2 ID. I suspect that they are not true 1/2 ID fittings. I use 1/2 ID tubing and it fits very loosely on the XSPC barbs when compared to the Bitspower ones I also have. Shouldn't be an issue if you stick with 7/16 ID tubing, though I would suggest clamps regardless of what fitting/tubing combo you go with.

Ok, so some extra 1/2" barbs, I'll probably buy some 7/16" tubing to replace the one included anyway. Now is there any sure way to prevent leaks?
