The Rasa kit comes with 1/2in barbs and the tubing mentioned above fits snug.

And can your explain just a little bit about barbed fittings?
How does 1/2 inch fittings fit 7/16 or 5/8 tubing and how big does it need to be to fit in the rad and such?
Since the tubing is slightly smaller than the barb it makes it hard to install, but after you do (hot water makes it easy) the tube creates a very tight seal on the barb and does not require an additional hose clamp to secure the tubing.

Wouldn't it still be good to have clamps on the hoses?

If it gives you peace of mind then then the small additional cost is well worth the investment.

These loops are not high-pressure systems so there is rarely a danger that is presented.

What is the different between the MCP355 and the MCP655. I read that the MCP355 was louder but also had 20ft of head. While the MCP655 only had 10ft but was supposedly quieter?

When you say acrylic top is that something that comes with it or is that the xspc top thing?

MCP 655 is quite. The MCP355 IS LOUD! Even with a top its obnoxious loud for anyone building a SILENT PC. I have fans under 800RPM and it's just to loud.

CPU loop for 300:

RAD: Swiftech triple if possible that has a built in res, if not a double one with a res

CPU block: Enzotech Sapphire( best bang for buck and a few C worse then the best ones but has over twice the flow)

Pump: MCP655

Tubing: tygon or the like

Fluid: Water and PK nuke

Fans: Scythe typhoons and if possible a shroud

This setup would be KILLER!!

Note: I run 2 triple swiftech, enzotech block, gpu block with the MCP655 on setting one with no issues and can handle more with no issues.

Your flow rates are beyond horrible. The MCP 655 on setting one with no restriction only pushes 0.75 GPM. With the restriction you have added you are getting much less. At those flow rates you are almost certainly losing multiple degrees to laminar flow. Surely, you can not hear the pump at setting 3 or 4?

For a pump I would get an MCP 350 with an XSPC replacement top. I have the 355 undervolted to 7v with XSPC Res top and it's silent.

For the CPU water block, I would get the XSPC Rasa. It costs $50 and performs within 1C of the best block available. It's also offers very low restriction.
