yea somehow i'm going to custom build a shroud... and that's only a maybe...

Gir doesn't list a "best" for northbridge blocks... any recommendations? will any do?

*edit* the fuzion 2 is hard to get hands on it seems... most websites except for jab-tech don't seem to have em for sale...

Actually if you need tighter bends, then the 7/16 tubing is better; the 1/2 is more likely to kink since it's more rigid.



BTW: 3 measurements used to classify tubing sizes are:[list=1][*] Inner Diameter (ID) = what we use when stating tubing sizes[*] Outer Diameter (OD)[*] Wall thickness = (ID - OD) / 2

Yea the fuzion v2 is a quick seller.

As for the chipset block, I use this one. Universal and very un-restrictive.

EDIT: Rad, I was just stating that the thickness really only matters when you need to keep it from kinking.

i think the only available tubing for me will be:

R-3603 Tygon 1/2" ID / 3/4" OD (1/8" wall) Tubing

I don't think shops near me sell any other ones. there might be a lot of twisting just so everything looks nice and pretty in there... but if the size limits my curves, then i don't mind letting it look ugly...

You should be fine. Tygon is good

I'm coming across a lot of d5 pumps...

DTC- D5 Vario 12v Pump

Laing D5-Pump 12V D5-Vario 1/2" OT

are there others? i'm about to click on the "Purchase order" button but which brand?
post #17 of 25
Brand doesn't matter, they are all the same. Companies like swiftech and danger den buy them from Laing and rebrand them.

My point was that it was implied that 1/2x3/4 would be less likely to kink with tight bends than the 7/16x5/8 when in reality the opposite is true.

Granted performancewise there isn't that much difference; but in terms of aesthetics, the tubing size can also come into play (especially in smaller cases) since the larger OD tubing can appear chunky whale the tubing with a slightly smaller OD is optically a better fit.

D5 Pump Cost USD$114.1

Res HKD$400 USD$57.69

Fuzion v2 CPU Block USD$71 Needs to be shipped to Hong Kong (Still searching, worst case, ship to US and get a friend to bring it over)

Total damage: HKD$4000

USD$ 524.21 not including t-line and barbs and other fittings if needed.

Reason it's so expensive is that HK imports all these products...
