What Size Tubing?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi there i'm getting ready to watercool my build and have a question regarding tubing. My loop will consist of cpu+gpu+mb+360+480+2xMCP35X just wondering if 7/16 tubing would perform as well as 1/2. Thanks

WAY overkill on the radiators.... 7/16'' is the way to go.

you wont get any better temps by adding the 360.. if it were me i would get one pump and the 480 now and when you buy the other stuff add another rad and pump.

Either 3/8, 7/16 or 1/2 inch hosing is fine.
