Assuming you're in the states, or use imperial sizes. . . .

For those pass-thrus, you'll need to drill a 3/4" hole and then use a dremel to clean it out another ~.015" all around.

The 7/8" hole is too big, and the o ring gets all twerked up if the hole is too big and they won't sit flat.

I use a good bi-metal holesaw, but you could use a uni-bit if you have to.

Always drill a pilot hole first for both a uni-bit or a holesaw.

They actually mic at 0.780" plus or minus a few thousandths, which is 20mm if you have access to rather large metric bits.

@aka13 those are g/14 pass throughs. The internal threads are g/14.

Yeah, sorry, i was wrong, i didnt noticed the last picture at frozencpu.com with tech specs, i just read the product description, where they say, that outer thread is G3/8.
Again, i am sorry to misinform you @TheCautiousOne here is the pic with dimensions


Edit: this confused me "You can drill out a hole for the G3/8" male fitting to go through and then tighten on the textured nut. "

I always wondered, like you have drill bits in these bizarre sizes in usa?
I mean, when I buy drill bits here, it's simple. It starts with 1mm and goes in 0,5mm stes till 20mm on the average kit.
How is it in the USA?

We have 3 basic size conventions, most common is in fractions of an inch by 64ths, then there are letter sizes and number sizes.

No problem mate, I known (and I am sure thecautiosone too) you didn't do on purpose. Besides we all do mistakes from time to time and is good to have such a supportive community like here in OCN which can spot our mistakes grouphug.gif. In this case it is just that I just ended drilling a month or two ago a lot of those holes for the pass throughs and have the info from the top of my head. cheers.gif

Are we still in agreement on the drill bit you linked me to?

@IT Diva You say I would drill to the 20mm mark on the bit and would be great fit?

THe Cautious One

EDIT: Both female fittings are G 1/4" for any type of Fitting correct? Lol. What I am gathering is that I could have a hard acrylic 12mm fitting on top of the passthrough and use a g 1/4" compression fitting on the bottom of the passthrough for soft tubing, am I right?

Yeah, OCN is awesome, right now all my watercooling experience comes from my aluminium cheapout (cpu, 2xgpu and 2x240 rads for under 100e), where i was only using 11/8mm G1/4 feser fittings.

Another thing, that i think lot of us share, is to follow build logs like this to learn new stuff.

g1/4 is standardized thread, so it will fit. And yes, we aggreed on 20mm drill size, again, i was confused by frozencpu product description.

If you get that metric one from Amazon, the 20mm step will be the one.

Depending on just how it cuts, you may need to dress up the edge a little, but the pass thrus are 20mm in diameter.
post #50 of 1979
I'll be interested to see your pass thru setup once you do it. I've looked through a few others' builds to get ideas for mine and I'm always interested to see how other people do it.

Btw the bit you linked originally is the one I have.
