I just want to clarify... I got some rebate money and I think Im gonna do the Res tube mod, and get a better fan and shroud. And While Im at it, ill lap the cpu and the h50 for added measure

One question about the res mod. Should I get 1/4", 3/8", 1/2", or 7/16" ID tubing?
Because on the product description says it comes "and is shipped with two sets of nylon hose barbs, 3/8†and ½†to accommodate most high-flow systems." So I guess what tubing so it will best fit with the h50 and rad? I dont like the mm because all tubing is in inches. I guess I just need explaining rather than get 8mm (even though I havent found any 8mm tubing online).

Nevermind. Figured 3/8 inch is the one I need. Does it matter what the OD is?
Well I put mine on the pull side. But there a lot of opinions on this. You will have to test your system and see what works best for you. OD kinda matters. You don't want thin walled tubing. I will say one thing that irks me is the fact some guys use zip ties or plastic clamps on there hoses then wonder why it leaks. Do yourself a favor and go to the hardware store and buy some metal hose clamps. I have built a several high end water systems and I have never had a leak and I have never had to test it for leaks before I installed it other then to bleed it. Why? Because I know how to clamp a freakin hose. Anyway, have fun and good luck.

What I'm about to explain will be from left to right and my arrows will follow the airflow, and nothing else. For the best results for the H50 seams to be adding shroud. The shroud is pulls more CFM and eliminates dead air if the shroud is after the H50. This is tested by my Anemometer (CFM meter). Try this:

• For exhaust (⇇Fan⇇Shroud⇇H50⇇Fan)
• For intake (Fan⇉H50⇉Shroud⇉Fan⇉)

Well I went to homedepot (before coming back here to see for a response). I ending up getting 3/8" ID(9.53mm) and 1/2"(12.7mm) OD tubing. 10ft for just under 4$.
Not sure if this is what I should have gotten or what. Bet much cheaper than 2$ a foot for a "PC" cooling company.

Hey, I'm doing the exact same thing as we speak...

I was just at Home Depot, and picked up 10' of 1/4 ID - 3/8 OD clear tubing. Maybe you missed it? No worries, just thinking about whether it'll be a little tougher to fit clamps/zipties around the H50 pump with that thicker tubing.

Well I looked at the microres and the barbs are for 3/8" or 1/2". So I figured the 3/8" ID was what I should have gotten. It also doesnt help when some tubing wasnt even in the correct spot LOL
You dont want to get too thin of tubing though so its easier to kink. Maybe you can post pictures of your tubing on the pump and see how much clearance you have.

I will. I'm kind of doing measurements right now and such. I just grabbed the tubing that Willhemmens recommended.

I'm not to worried about it kinking... but we'll see. I'll post up in a few hours, as its gonna take a bit. lol

Im getting ready to order the res, anti-kink coils and ordering a ultra kaze fan. Anything else I should get? Well Willhemmens said he got 8mm, also because the barbs on the microres are for 3/8". 3/8" is closer to 8mm than any other common US standard tube size.
Maybe my reasoning is just wack, I dont know.
I was thinking of getting some of this though instead http://www.jab-tech.com/PrimoFlex-Pr...D-pr-4115.html
Only because I like the blue rather than clear. XD LOL

I'll probably make a video tutorial. Because I want to contribute to something at least.

Just loaded my rad with dual shrouds and Slipstreams. Much more quiet then the R4's. Cools well but I gave up about 4c Delta T.
