Is this tubing 3/8" or 1/2"

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Well I've decided to put together a water cooling setup with lime green tubing and found this:

It has 3/8" and 1/2" in the title and wanted to know what the actual size was.

3/8 inner diameter, 1/2 outer.

And it looks way freaking expensive.

if you want 1/2" look for 1/2 or 5/8s on ID, inner Dia

So if my water cooling setup was 1/2" would this fit? sorry if that makes no sense but I've only read up the basics of water cooling a few hours ago.

You can get 3/8" on 1/2" barbs, there are several guys here who run it that way. You'll get almost the same flow as using full 1/2" tube with less bulk.

Stretch it out with needle nose pliers a little before you put it on the barbs, heat the ends up in a little hot water, if your putting it on metal barbs soak the end in a little rubbing alcohol first to help it slide on easier. On plastic barbs put a little glycerin on the barb to help it slide on easier. Those are all ways to help get it on a little easier, lots of cussing usually helps to..

yeah you can use that tubing on 1/2'' barbs but its harder to get on. the ID is the inner diameter and the OD is the outer diameter Meaning the inside of the tubes are 3/8th inches and the outside is 1/2 inches.

I use 3/8 ID-5/8 OD tygon, I accidentally ordered the 1/2" OD stuff once, I don't think it can be put on 1/2 barbs without a lot of work and it looks tiny.
1/2" OD compared to 5/8" OD.
