GFX card : my GTX 680 remains.

I have planned nearly all the parts of my water cooling system :

Fittings/Tubing
???????????????
Coolant liquid
???????????????

BUT because I'm new to watercooling I cannot decide what fittings and tubing to go for. I have read loads of review but they didnt help much.
I know people are convinced that whatever they using is the best, but I'm a total noob when it comes to watercooling so please bear that in mind when you recommend something. (objective)

So if you could help me choosing the right fittings and tubing that would be GREAT. I just dont want to screw up.


Thank You very much in advance

PS. I've updated my system specs but it has never been changed

Fair enough.
But what size for the tubing and what kind of tubing(make) for compression fittings?

Primochill tubing is great, you could go with that, use 1/2 x 3/4 and then just get the fittings to match. G1/4 fittings, Swiftech Lok Seal or Bitspower are both solid.

I'm using compression fittings on the visual parts and barbs/clamps on the out-of-sight parts. Barbs have a slightly larger interior diameter than compression fittings, so I opted to choose performance where no one sees and eye candy where they do.

For example, the 1/2" Bitspower barb has an inner diameter of 12mm, whereas the 1/2" compression fitting has an ID of 10mm.

Thanks very much guys

To round it up. I will use barbs on the pump and the radiators and for the cpu,gpu, and chipset will use compression fittings.

Thanks very much
