Staying with what i linked you helps you avoid plasticizer / clouding issues other tubing brands suffer from.

Only other brand i know with UV red with out these issues is feser http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/fetuftacuvho3.html " out of stock "

But there is some here.. http://www.amazon.com/Feser-Active-UV-Hose-Feet/dp/B002GUFW3W

...I also use 1/2 x 3/4 PrimoChill tubing...Advanced LRT / bloodshed red (on Swiftech 1/2 compression fittings), and I agree with Hokies (not always but today biggrin.gif ) - while the PrimoChill tubes of that diameter can behave a bit like cranky Pythons initially, you'll have far less trouble later. In addition, I am not sure if these w-c tricks / hints were already posted...in case they were not, here are some tips I received from a pro when I did my first custom-loop recently:

smile.gif ..if the tubes don't want to easily slide over a barb or work in a compression fitting, you can dip one end in a cup of fairly warm water for a couple of minutes, then use a needle-nose pliers to open them up a bit (carefully)...

smile.gif ...I use Teflon plumber tape on all screw-in fittings that touch the cooling liquid, but only on the first few threads - you don't want bits of Teflon floating around in your loop (pump!) later...

smile.gif ...make sure that your reservoir is near and slightly above your pump as you need to make certain that your pump never runs dry...

smile.gif ...before you start, buy a few gallons of distilled water and thoroughly flush your radiator several times...you would be surprised how many little pieces of dirt / paint shavings come out, even in a brad new all-copper or brass setup...I even flushed the tubes and the Koolance block before mounting...

smile.gif ...when placing the MPC655 pump, make sure that you can reach the back adjustment screw once mounted...also, consider that down the road, you need to flush / drain the system for maintenance, so plan accordingly re access to drain plugs etc...

smile.gif ...unless you run cooling liquids with anti-bacterial additives, you may also want to glue a small piece of silver tape in your reservoir as silver is a really good anti-bacterial agent

...and now back to our regular programming: Hokies83 - I hear you're switching away from Gigabyte boards and AMD 7k series GPUs to the real thing / ROG boards with Nvidia GPUs tongue.gif

Alright Hokies, here it is:





It looks reference to me. I need a second opinion though thumb.gif

Gigabyte boards are better then Rog boards wink.gif

I did own an X58 RE3 it was a nice board. And my HTPC is an Asus board...

Also i did own 2 of the very top tier GTX 680s for a good 8 months..

And 2 other 2GB 680s...

These Amd Gpus kick there butts pretty hard tho.

Gallium melts at 85F....which is largely what CLU is. Seems like you would want to "preheat" your parts before putting them together, and this would give you a lot more "wiggle room" (literally).

Thanks a lot guys I'll stick with that tubing. I really appreciate those tips too I'm going to save them in a word pad to look at when I'm putting the loop together. A tighter fit is always better than a looser one! I really do like that tubing so I'm glad it will work. So with the MPC655 would I be able to run a single loop with one pump? I have some people telling me that it will be more than enough and others saying that I have to use two of them if I want to run a single loop. So what is the truth here? I'm being pulled in two different directions.

For your Loop one mcp 655 is enough...

LoL when u get into loops like mine is when u need 2...

My coming build will be caseless, with tubing running to a 1080radiator I will mount on my wall. I hope two pumps will be enough.
