Ideas for first time WC

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Instead of giving a long explanation of my idea, I'll post this pic instead.

2wpqzxv.jpg

I forgot the CPU black - EK-SUpreme HF Nickel/Acetal

I'm missing the following

Fans - Looking for something quiet

compression fitting - suggestions? something black and stylish. I know compression fittings are far more expensive then the traditional barbs but I want a clean look.

tubing - Have no idea where to go for this part. I want something clear and not super thick.

Pump top - I saw a few tops but looking for something cheap. I want to be able to mount the res directly to the top



***I might not respond instantly because my internet has been acting up.

popular pump top

I use Enzotech black compression fittings

What size tubing did you wanna go with?

What block are you using?

Thank you for the top, I'll go with that!

CPU Block is a EKWB EK-Supreme HF - Acetal


Tubing - to be honest, I'm completely confused with the sizes and how much I need. "1/2" ID" and "3/4" OD"...no idea what that means.

1/2 inner diamater. 3/4 outter.

I'd go 7/16 if I were you. 1/2 is rather large.

Tygon and Primochill are are good brands when it comes to tubing.

Alright, so the ID of the compression fitting needs to match the ID of the tube correct? I've selected 3' of Tygon 3603 7/16" clear tubing

I'm using performance-pc and cannot find any 7/16" compression fitting. any help?

7/16 compression fitting are not as common. If you using compressing the 3/8 or 1/2 ID is the best option. For barbs it's 7/16 tube on 1/2 barb
