It actually uses 5/8", but you can stretch 1/2" tubing over it.

one good thing i have to say in favor of 3/8 is there is less torsional force from the tubes to the decrease the waterblock-die contact area... the thicker 1/2ID tubes are thick and can put a strain on the waterblock...

i had originally had a hole cut in the side of my case for a 80mm fan to blow air onto the cpu heatsink... but when I went to watercooling i used it to route an external bonneville core/fans to the waterblock (mcw6002) and I could remove the waterblock from the pc b/c it fits thru the hole. also you could cut a hole on the backside, near the door panel, so when you open the door, you can pull the tubing and the waterblock out... vs thru PCI slots you'd have to disconnect the tubing to remove the waterblock from the PC... don't be afraid to mod your case...


case door 'locks' hoses in place.

Thats an interesting comment. Can someone second this idea?

Thanks for all the help guys. I think I've made up my mind though. Im going to keep everything in the case with 1/2" tubing and with a 120mm sized rad down in front. If anyone sees anything out of order let me know please.

Ehh...
The chipset block will not help you at all. It will only increase your loop temps, cost you more money and restrict your water flow. I would also reccomend that you use Swiftech Hydrx additive, it works great and is a lot cheaper (if you don't mind the green color). Also, your current loop order isn't going to work out that well. It should always go res/T-line-pump-cpu WB-GPU WB-RAD-Pump
Or, you should always have your GPU or chipset block right before the RAD, and the T-Line/RES must be before the pump. Your setup is configureable to the res-pump-CPU WB-GPU WB-RAD-res type setup, it just might take a little more work to get it set up in that order.
Good luck.

Exnay on the chipsetwaterblockay

That saves some money then. I was hoping to make it the water blue - but it also says that the pc-ice is compatiable with other additives. I was thinking of putting in some water wetter. But i'll check out the swifttech stuff.

Just reccomending the Swiftech stuff so you could save some money.
The Ice stuff is good too, it might even be better...
But I hear Water Wetter smells nasty, and leaves an orange residue on everything it touches. I've been told to stay away from Watter Wetter.
