Yes, it would effectively make your entire loop 3/8". The flowrate is very dependent on the smallest diameter of the entire loop.
Alright, I think Ill go with the swiftech res. Seems to be a dang good thing.

Those aren't 3/8" fittings on it...It is 3/8"npt-1/2" tubing barb...Which is larger then the G-1/4" fittings on most of the other components...Thats what confuses a lot of the new guys..

So, ira-k, am I good with my original res or do I have to go to this new one?

I don't want to restrict flow.

The 3/8" is the res thread size it wont restrict your flow at all....Just get 3/8" NPT to 1/2" barb....Its fine..The thread size is bigger then what you have in your WB and rad so if anything the rad and WB will restrict your flow more then the res barbs....

Here is where I got mine...You need to Plumbers Goop" on the threads to seal them you can get it at any hardware store for $4-5 bux for a big tube...Let it cure for a day or two before you use it...

Here is where I found the fittings for mine...

....http://www.svc.com/a6-8np.html
3/8" NPT to 1/2" barb Hose Adapter


You need to clean up all your components before you use them....I'll leave you a PDF file on how to do it..Its not spell checked so don't laugh to much... ..I just got tired of typing it out so much...

Hah, ok, thanks! I'll just stick with my current res then.

I was already thinking about cleaning my scrap out with vinegar and water, but I'll just follow your guide.

Good deal...Be sure to take your WB apart and look it over good...Dryadsoul found a bunch of slag on his gasket that he had to cut off..But its that way on any new blocks the Apogee was notorious for having little hanging metal shavings...If you have a magnifying glass use it to really look over the inside good..Little meatal shavings are hard on the pumps impeller...Take your time setting it up and leak testing have fun with use it as a learning experience....
