I would like to go 1/2 Pipes?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone.

I am thinking about getting 1/2 inch pipes for my watercooling, because 10/8mm is jut not cutting it, Is it possable just to change the pipes and fittings so it will fit my current setup?

Thanks everyone.

Yes, you need to change the barbs and tubing. But you do not tell us what components you have in your loop.

Simple: yes.
Elaborate what you have exactly though.

Since it's G1/4 fittings just go get some 1/2 G1/4 barbs, which is basically all barbs. Tubing wise go get 7/16 ID for a snug fit.

Basically, you'll need to replace all your barbs with these and you should re-plumb the setup with 7/16ths tubing. There doesn't appear to be any on that site.

edit: Whoops

7/16ths tube has the advantage of routing easier.
