need help for watercooling. - Page 2

post #11 of 20
are you going with compression fittings or barbs?
3/8 or 1/2 ID. is your best bet ,for 1/2'' barbs 7/16 id.5/8 od.-no need for clamps,you want the wall thickness to be around .094~.125'' to prevent kinking

No, it's not. As long as the fans are properly fed with air you won't have any differences. If the air inside the case is warmer, the water will be too.

Also, tubing size does not have an effect on flow I would go with either 3/8", 7/16" or 1/2" ID. You want to get thick walled tubing, IE:

3/8" ID 5/8" OD
7/16" ID 5/8" OD
1/2" ID 3/4" OD

and NOT

3/8" ID 1/2" OD
1/2" ID 5/8" OD

dude..you are some kind of Moe.." As long as the fans are properly fed with air you won't have any differences"..lol ,so are you saying that you can mimic same exact scenario inside the case as outside??
where do you see
"and NOT

3/8" ID 1/2" OD

The only two things that affect a radiators performance that could possibly be affected by a case are airflow and air temperature. As long as the radiator is properly fed with air and your case ambience aren't too high you shouldn't have any problems.

As for the tubing, thinner walled tubing kinks much easier. There was a large tubing roundup on another forum and they have some awesome pictures of this. I can't seem to find it at the moment, but when i do I'll post back here.

Alright so my weakest understanding of water cooling is in this area (tubing and fittings). ID 3/8" OD 1/2" sounds most appealing. I will go with that.

I'll be using tygon. What fittings do I need for this size tubing? Compressions or barbs? Just tell me what you would use instead of the pros and cons of each as it will further my insecurities with my own decision and choice making

Also I noticed when two gfx cards are in loop they seem attached with some special fitting with no tube visible. How is this achieved and what are these unique fittings?
Thanks.

If you want 3/8 ID I would get 5/8 OD rather than 1/2 OD because the thicker tubing wall will help prevent kinks.

As for fittings, google "fittings 101" and watch the YouTube video that comes up. It explains everything you need to know about fittings.

*Bump*

I want my fans on my radiator blow THROUGH the rad right?

i think this is called push. I'm only putting fans on one side of my rads, so i would want push?
