Make sure they are REALLY tight. The tubing does need a coil to keep it from kinking for sharp turns. I use a 655 pump as well and inside the Enzotech block is a black o-ring. I suggest that if your parts are in series like most are to remove that o-ring. That pump moves a ton of fluid. My tygon tubing actually expanded a very small bit due to the back pressure. I removed the O-ring and all is well. Its mostly there for lower flow pumps to increase fluid velocity.

Edit: 7/16" tubing would make for a nice tight fit on the normal 1/2" barbs but the ones on the 655 are pretty big and I had a little bit of a hard time getting it on there. Heating the 7/16" with a hair dryer or boiling water would probably make it possible.
So if you have the Enzotech, would you recommend buying it or should I pay $5 more and get the Appogee or something else? I really don't want to flood my rig if anything cracks. Many thanks for your help!

I would get Tygon B-44-3 tubing. You can order it from usplastics. Get the stuff with 1/2" ID, 3/4" OD and 1/8" wall thickness. About the best tubing you can get. For the waterblock, I would get a D-Tek Fuzion with the nozzle kit and pro mount.

I would probably not buy it again. The plastic top hasen't cracked as all but you never know what can happen. I run the cpu into an ek 3870x2 block(restrictive) then to my dual 120 rads. Coolant is warm at best. Vid idles at 27 and 35c and the cpu at 45C on water with a OC to 3.8GHz and minor voltage bump. I think I need to reseat or the performance just isn't there.

Well, you don't have enough rad for your setup, you need at least a 360.

The dual xflow 120's do allright. Probably couldn't add anything else to the loop but they are hardly warm to the touch. That and with a first gen cosmos case I am limited to two 120's without going rediculously huge and nasty looking.

Also the 45C is on 30min of prime95 100% load.

i've always used the same I.D. tubing as the O.D. of the fillings with a hose clamp... haven't had a leak yet... and you don't need a lot of force to put the tubing on the fittings...

herbie clips are fairly easy to install... but i prefer stainless traditional clamps...
