Help with tubbing / fittings I don't understand this - Page 2

Thanks.. but I still don't understand this.

Is this tubbing smaller or something? Isn't that 1/2 ID or whatever thing better?

When it comes to fittings. Barbs only matters when it comes to inner diameter. Compression fittings you need inner AND outer diameters to perfectly match.

3/8 is on the smaller side, but should be fine. Most people seems to go with 7/16 or 1/2 ID for the looks or if you have a very long loop with many restrictions.

Which tubbing do you recommend from the website? The red one Charlie mentioned?

If you are really worried about getting all the right parts, you should look into the RS360 kit from XSPC.

Primochill and feser tubing is nice.

Yeah those are really nice. Also, going 1/2 ID 3/4 OD seems to have a big selection of compression fittings if you do end up going that route.

Haha Charlie explained everything to me.... now I understand.

I am going with this because it's 7/16 and I like the big ones (fat) - http://www.ekwaterblocks.com/shop/ac...mm-uv-red.html

and these: http://www.ekwaterblocks.com/shop/fitting-1-2-id.html
