Where do I buy barbs?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have a thermaltake pump and rad with swiftech blocks tt is 3/8 swiftech blocks come with 1/2 barbs which i would like to use. the swiftech barbs have trouble screwing into the tt pump and rad so i need 1/2 barbs that will work. Where do I look? would a hardware store like lowes carry anything?

Get a new PUMP first off. Thermaltake IMO sucks.

NO point going 1/2" with that setup!

Between those three you should be able to find what you need.

And if push comes to shove, you can buy barbs at home depot. I've seen them there.
