Help!! Need some barb help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I ordered an EK water block for my 580, the nickel+acetal one, I was installing it and right as I finished I realized I don't have enough barbs for this. For some reason I thought it would come with them but it did not, so I thought (Since I got a replacement rad) I'll just use the ones that come with the RX 360 replacement and that didn't come with any. So now here I am with no barbs and no clamps for my new waterblock, I am located in Southern CA near Anahiem. Does anyone know a place where I would get barbs and clamps? Also I am using the XSPC Tubing that came with the RX 360 Kit so I am pretty sure these are 7/16" tubing, and I need G1/4" to 1/2" barbs.

You are correct in your assessment of the tubing and barb size. You might be able to find that fitting at a specialty plumbing store. G 1/4 is BSPT (British Standard Pipe Thread) and mainly used in the UK. In North America NPT is used instead. This will make it difficult (but not impossible) to find the correct fittings.
