What res are you using?

What are the barb sizes on the h50 pump and rad?

Stay Tuned
If your opening the unit up, it wont be a closed loop. Mainly because your seals wont be like the near perfect seals Corsair gets. Could be interesting though, im looking into getting a Dual rad and doing my NB, mosfets and GPU with the H50 pump.

If your having leaking problems then drop down to smaller sizes but if all is running fine, why get smaller tubing, lowering performance. Im sticking with 3/8" ID and 1/2" OD and planning to get some more high quality stuff.

I did but ended up getting a Res instead. A T-line would do the job but wouldnt be so easy to bleed with.

I havent built my system yet... I wanted to make sure the tubing was correct, so I can go ahead and order the parts. And know that the barbs will work with the tubing.
So zip-ties will work fine, or should i get hose clamps?

So after reading thru countless posts in this tread I decided to get this cooler for my new computer. Before I buy this I have a few questions for you guys.

1. Stock thermal paste or not?
2. Intake or not?
3. 1 fan or 2 fans?
4. Best fans for a quiet build?

also a pic of my computer:


Do you think I could fit a 2 fan setup?

Edit: also I forgot to ask about the screws needed for the 2 fan setup thanks in advance

First, cable management for sure
The stock thermal paste is great. I took it off not knowing how good it was LOL.
Youll have to do your own testing on intake vs exhaust. Each case is different.
2 fans will result in lower temperatures.
Im currently using Coolermaster R4 fans in a push pull setup. They are pretty quiet for the airflow they produce.


Sorry, didnt meant to sound mean in any way about the cable management. But it makes a case look nicer and better airflow.

Question. What hose clamps would you guys recommend me getting?

Or would zip ties do the trick?
Compression fittings would be ideal, but not really in the budget to buy them all
