You're overpaying for straight barbs, especially considering you're only getting plastic ones. These (http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11501/ex-tub-172/Bitspower_Chrome_G14_Barb_Fitting_-_12_ID_BP-WTP-C01.html?tl=g30c407s1030) are better and cheaper. As for clamps, here; (http://www.frozencpu.com/products/5058/ex-tub-125/Primoflex_Nylon_Reusable_Hose_Clamp_-_Black_-_58_OD.html?tl=g30c289s722)

Try 10 feet of this tubing; (http://www.frozencpu.com/products/14228/ex-tub-1022/XSPC_High_Flex_PVC_Tubing_-_716_ID_58OD_-_Clear.html?tl=g30c99s809) It's cheaper and is the same as the tubing in the rasa kit.

You'll also need fans for that extra 240 radiator.

Sorry if I come off as a little mean, I'm not trying to be. I know I sound like a cheapskate, but you'll save ~$10.

I personally wouldn't get that tubing. Pretty much all of the original tubing that comes with the RASA kits clouds after a few weeks. I'm just using distilled water in mine and the tubes are clouded-yellowish color. My $.02.

i would like to stick to the dd tubes because i have a bunch of green uv fans already bought, plus the dd tubes come with clamps that look exactly like the ones you posted but they are green as well, for the barbs ill defiantly look into better ones.
