Questions:

What/how many components are you trying to cool?

What type of pump?

The clamps you posted are for 3/8" OD (outer diameter) so they will not work with the tubing you selected which is 3/8" ID - 1/2" OD
Considering you have multiple radiators you should probably stick with 1/2" ID tubing which comes in either 5/8" or 3/4" OD

I won't claim to know a whole lot about water cooling but with that many components in the loop you'd be shooting yourself in the foot by restricting flow with a smaller ID tubing. Even with a single GPU and the CPU you are pushing it with 3/8" ID.

So you suggest a larger tube that allows more water to flow?

This would be my best bet?

please no misinformation if you are not sure dont spread it.

3/8 ID tubing is fine.

I use 3/8 tubing in my build. I have a motherboard block, CPU block, two GPU blocks (when i had 670's), two radiators, and tons of 90 degree fittings everywhere and my MCP35x pump is lightly running at 30% power.

My GPU's dont get past 34C on load and CPU doesnt get past 55C. (this was before i switched to a 780 classy)

I was simply repeating what I had read in other threads in the past. By all means, fill the man in.

But you have a 240mm rad and a 360rad lol frown.gif. If i stick with the 3/8 ID and 1/2 OD what clamps would i need? something bigger than 1/2?
