Honestly, you don't even need clamps if you run 7/16 ID tubing over 1/2 OD barbs. I installed my tubing and tried to pull it off the barb, and it would not budge. The tubing creates a tight seal around the barb.
Also, the AP-15's are much quieter than the stock fans. There is no other conclusion.
My Primochill clear tubing also discolored after a month of use. Replaced it with Primochill UV Blue. When I installed the blue tubing, I soaked it in hot water for 30 minutes to get rid of any contaminants, then flushed it with distilled water prior to install. Maybe this will prevent the discoloration that occurred with my clear tubing.
Clean out your rads with hot water and distilled water. Then flush them out with at least half a gallon of distilled water.

I wonder why most of you are installing the rad with the fittings toward the rear of the case? That makes for a longer run of tubing.
And as far as making my kit look "uber fancy" and the fittings not being for performance, I would just rather get everything all in one whack than get the kit installed.. tear it apart a couple weeks later, and again.. seems tedious to me when I could've gotten it all done at once. And yeah, I should just get some of these, eh?
