Building a custom loop. [ oops inside ] - Page 2

post #11 of 20
It's impossible to get a firm measurement from the photos alone but judging from that last photo, it sure doesn't look like that tube will fit that fitting.

To me however the inner diameter of the fitting seems sized for 1/2" not 7/16" since the correct section to compare is the middle part between the little lip, below the flared part, and the screw threads... that's the section where the compression occurs.

the short piece of 1/2"x3/4" I have fits loosely on the barb, but the compression ring is too small to go over the outside of the tube.

I also have a short piece of 3/8x5/8, which fits in the ring, but I cant get over the barb.

Build one to better accommodate your needs thumb.gif
I'm in the process of building a MountainMods inspired horizontal motherboard case. When all is said and done, I will have only spent about a quarter of what a MM case of similar layout would have cost me.

Sounds like 7/16 x 5/8 to me then. Do you still have the invoice from where you bought the fittings to double check. I have a bunch of extra 7/16 x 5/8 tubing. I could ship you a short sample section to test fit if you want

Ok. I have am going to go with whatever tubing will fit my comps.

In doing so I wont be able to incorporate my Motherboard VRM block quite as easily as I had hoped.

I am thinking that an F-Style branch may be what I need.



Using the 1/2" body with my 7/16" ID tubing ( which I hear works well with no clamps ) and the 1/4"ID branch with 1/4" tubing to my 3/8" barbs on my board.

Anyone think this is not feasable?

I have everything assembled.

I am ordering some Angled fittings, and some g1/4 T blocks in an attempt to clean up my tubing.

The radiators and fans are all in place, and boy is this poor little Antec 300 feeling the weight.

Images as soon as I locate the charger for the T3i.

Embarrassing. (Click to show)
Here is the area that needs some work.

Ill be acquiring some Angled fittings.
So far I know I need a single 45* and a 90* fitting.

1 90* to come in to the pump from the rad, the 45* to go on the block.

I also plan to use a pair of T blocks with G1/4 couplers either directly on the block, or on the pump to feed the small barbs on my board.
-That is unless someones got a more genius idea to mix the barb sized with my existing 7/16"ID tubez.
