AsRock Z87 OC Formula mobo barb size?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Anyone know what size hose will fit on the barbs for the built in cooling on this mobo? Also I have read about mixing metals in a loop, does anyone know what metal the water-block is made of?

Thanks,
Chris

The ID of the barbs is 3/8 which seems to be the standard now a days. As far as materials I haven't seen a tear down of the block to know.

Spoke too soon apparently they use the same type of cooler as the Gigabyte boars which is a copper pipe with aluminium fins.

What would be the OD of the barbs so I know what ID of tubing to get? Thanks for the info on the metal!

Probably the same as my Z77 OC Formula. 3/8" hose. BTW I used the plastic hose clamps on the barbs. unless your tube is real tight it will leak.
