Hey guys, im trying to figure out what size tubing to go with in my rig.

Right now its between 1/2ID x 3/4OD and 3/8" ID x 5/8" OD

Using 1/2 x 3/4 myself. Seemed to be the most popular back when I was starting out so I went with it.

Here's a pic of my setup after I got the loop installed but before the rest of my components were put in: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Using 3/8 x 5/8, IMHO just easier to manage and looks cleaner in a small to medium case. 1/2 x 3/4 for the larger cases
