Different Size tubing on MCP 655

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Well I just received my MCP 655 and now that I compare a bit of tubing to the pump fitting. I realize I need 1/2" tubing, so I made due with what I had and forced a bit of 7/16x5/8 on there. Now my question is, Is it safe for it to be like this? biggrin.gif

Should I worry about it cracking?

It'll be safe, 7/16" tubing over 1/2" is pretty secure but I'd at least put a ziptie over it just in case, it might seem secure now but over time the tubing will stretch to that size naturally with the help of the slightly heated water so it could become loose whether it's a matter of months or even years. Always better to be safe than sorry.

Anywhere below and after the res for easy filling.

+1 on the pump top, it'll let you use more fittings, makes your pump look nicer and better flow & pressure

Ugh doh.gif I always forget something will this be fine with my res/pump combo? or should I just take out the res/pump? This would be a CPU and GPU loop.
