Suggestions for compact tubing?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'd like to start my watercooling project which has been on hold for a year now. it will be a CPU only look with one 120x2 radiator. One thing I'm looking for is tubing that isn't super thick. any size suggestions?

3/8" ID x 1/2" OD, or 3/8" ID x 5/8" OD would be my recommendation.

7/16in x 5/8in has a very thin wall and the size I would recommend if you want to go with barbs without clamps.

I want to be on the safe side and use barbs with zip-ties. I'll check your recommendations. Thank you.
