I have both the 4 and 8 pin connected, havent had time to OC yet, but if the option for both is there why not use both

I am running 3/8 x 5/8 through the whole loop. I origanally was going to use these:
But when I put them on I could pull the tube off so I went with the ste.el spring hose clamps ( I believe they are 1/2 but not sure, had them in the closet ). I did notice that you have to make sure that the tubing goes over both flares on the barb to secure it, but with the clamp it is on there nice and tight.
As far as flow, I didnt see any decrease in flow rate at all. Through the whole loop I have 7 90 fittings and with the 3/8 tubing, using dual 355 pumps, I see the same flow as in my other builds with bigger tubing and alot less 90 fittings.
