1/2 to 3/8 into rad

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So i just upgraded my LCS to 1/2 inch tubing, new waterblock and pump.

My rad came with my case (Kandalf http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/Produc...9&ID=1412#Tab1 ) and has 3/8 tubes.

So far so good, sure its a little hotter, due to the loss of flow, but do you think i should replace the barbs and just make it 1/2 all the way? I'm not sure if it will case backup, and make the pressure explode one of my tubes eventually.

Sorry pretty bad with terms here, if you need any more info let me know!

Thanks!
