I not sure what size I need, I would use the c47/c48 to connect to blocks, but just not sure about the size of tube I need. Also how much flow do you lose with all 90 degrees in the lines?

Have you already got the acrylic? it's 7/16th? I would recommend metric. Yes only worry about OD
Martins liquid lab did a test. I'm not sure where but you need A LOT of 90 deg bends to decrease the temp even a little.

Phobya. Cheap and I like the way they look. Very reliable.

Again 12 or 10 mm OD. Do you mean the c47 for all the blocks of the gpu blocks?

I havent order the acrylic yet, I am squaring out what all I need before doing that. Problem I ran into is I need a company that is US side, and the fittings I need for my blocks and size of tube I'll need (which I see I need 12 or 10mm, so I need to find a place that has mm tubing). I am sorry if i am repeating myself and a little scatter brained, i am getting parts for my 4770k build today, and about as hyped as a hamster given 3 red bulls and 40 pounds of sugar, then told to I cant run the wheel.

Thank you, now is the difference between the pf22 12 and pf22 12.2 is the height right? which would u suggest for a loop? I only have 1 card and when I get 2 I probably use the EK acrylic bridge.

I've seen them both used and they both looks good. I think they both work well too. So really it's a matter of your preference in looks.

For anyone using 12mm/10mm, 3/8" silicone RUBBER CORD (don't get the foam) works much better than TUBE. You can get it here: http://www.mcmaster.com/#standard-silicone-rubber-cords/=n2s354. It comes in 3' lengths

Ive been looking to get some acrylic tube locally, but all Im able to find is 12-8mm or 10-8, would there be in performance or increased difficulty bending the thicker walled tubing?

So far I am finding that with my 10/8mm acrylic I am getting 3 deg hotter on hottest core then my 12/10mm tubing. i5 3570k - 5.0 ghz - 1.528 v. Still have more testing to do.

As for bending I am going to assume you will just need to heat it up a bit longer.

I doubt there would be a performance hit or more difficulty.
