So i just got the xspc rs240 kit, and i added a 360mm radiator to it, my question is do i want to use the 7/16in tubing that came with it (clear), or my 1/2in uv red primochill tubing? Will i see a flow benefit from the 7/16 tubing giving me lower temperatures?

for the looks: Primochill

Not much difference in performance. the 7/16 would make a tighter seal on the 1/2" barbs though.

I mounted the waterblock vertical.In on top.And I 'm using 7/16 x 5/8.Like wermad said,you get a tighter fit over the 1/2 barbs.

Well from everything I've seen and heard, the primo uv red turns out more pink than orange. If you wanted to go with stock till you found something that you liked better than pink, thats a very viable option. Stock works very well as long as you arent running tight turning tubes.

I can attests to this, that's why I went w/ non-uv this time. In general, most uv stuff ain't that good and they will loose their uv properties over time. not worth it imo.
