the advantage of the G1/2 over the G1/4, even if both have a 1/2OD barb, would be that the ID of the G1/2 part would be a lot wider. since we're talking about a pelt block here, and since even your own design has such a wide intake, wouldnt that be a GOOD thing?
also, it would allow for users to choose larger barbs, larger tubes, and a larger pump if he thinks its necessary.
with multiple outlet barbs, the loop could be split into 2 normal 1/2" ones and for example cool 2 graphics cards, after which both lines join again into a bigger one.
It would be better for Pelts because it spreads the inlet water more.

Larger tubing will have no discernible advantage hence G 1/2" fitting is not need. The standard in watercooling is G 1/4" so why use anything bigger?

Why make that assumption that the user will use two video cards? Why can't they just use a Y-Adapter?

because it also makes sure the flow is distributed more evenly. the way the FuZion works, the hole closest to outlet would get most, while the one farthest away would get much less. if a second outles is placed on the opposite side, most of this is would be solved. and here too, "Why can't they just use a Y-Adapter?"

im seeing it as a discussion in order to gain insight and a better design, rather than one based on what a single person says.
he might be much more knowledgable on the subject, but that doesnt take away that 2 know more than 1. Which is the entire purpose of this thread. Whole OCN>me.
EDIT: well... that, and the fact i can enjoy a good discussion some times. even if i get proven completely wrong.

not been getting many replies, so worked on a new block for a while.
went from simple square pins to Oddball design; it still has pins, but also holes.

also decided to give it flow-chambers again. if it works on radiators, it works on waterblocks.
it's a huge block, using a total of 4 layers to optimally channel the water to preserve as much pressure as possible for the block itself.
Still went with the middle barb as a G1/2" one. it does not have disadvantages over the G1/4", as there are G1/2"->1/2"OD barbs just as there are G1/4"->1/2"OD.
