Definitely prefer 1/2" OD myself. I don't like the way those fittings look. Plus I have never been a fan of fat tubing.

Agreed.

Bending threaded tube is just a whole load of excess pain,I cant see how it will work without D-Plugs or rotaries,excess cost for little reward.

It all depends on the case imo. 1/2" OD looks like spaghetti in very big cases. rolleyes.gif

I don't like the fat 3/4" of my previous builds and what I see on these forums.
My case is the enorneous STH10, and my pipes all 10mm OD (3/8" more or less).
And I love the understated look of it.
Spagettini in my case.

I know it was posted awhile back but what was it you guys were using to bevel the edges of the tube for the c48 fittings?

aka an 'Inner Outer Reamer'. Depending on where you shop the price on them can vary widely. You should be able to pick one up for ~$10 (US) or less.

Only reason I'm adding that to a post to this convo is this came up once before and whoever it was suggested to after they found one and bought it they later posted a link to it suggesting it to someone else - I think it was on this thread but could have been another - and turned out they paid something like $45 for theirs from a plumbing supply company. I was like eek.gif
