good eye, I forgot about that when pasting the links. I think I found the other size eventually, but you are probably right. Bigger tubing will probably be better now that I am looking at 1500LPH pumps.
Seems a shame that all fittings have the restrictive G1/4 fitting though, as that reduces your eventual flow rate when using larger than 1/4"ID tubing.

I actually own that barrow block, did well to cool my i5-9600k @ 4.9Ghz, was in service for 6 months before I swapped it out for a watercool heatkiller iv. But a good block none the less. And yes, EK fittings are a no-go. I prefer monsoon these days tbh.

Good to know the blocks are at least decent, Thanks.

I am happy to have had this discussion, and I really appreciate all the help you guys all have provided me, thank you!

It looks like I will be putting this project off a couple years however, as I unexpectedly won an auction for a 280mm Arctic Liquid Freezer 2 for $42, and it is a Huge amount of cooling! I am OC'ing over 1200MHz right now, and I can't even get the fans to spin up to the point I can even hear them, or get temps above 70c, 75c max for a spike maybe.

I must say I am impressed. This should be more than enough cooling to hold me off until I can really afford all the quality pieces without being budget strained, which is where I was heading.

I had figured for the $110 cost of the Arctic I should just go for the custom loop now, but I wasn't expecting to get one for $42
Thanks Again, Hope everyone is well!

Glad you were able to find a solution you are happy with for such a low price! Doing a custom loop is a lot of fun, but saving up and getting quality components is definitely the way to go once you're ready to go down that road.

I just picked up 10 Arctic P12's for an upcoming project and I'm blown away with how they perform in relation to their cost, so I'm not surprised to hear that their AIO works well.

You are absolutely right about that.

Thats the big draw for me right there, is how well those P14 fans work. They are like literal jet engine intake fans at high speed, and move a ton of air still at super low RPM. These are the fans I envisioned when I was thinking about what the perfectly engineered no compromises fan would be like. No joke these fans are ridiculous. Absolutely no comparison hands down.


Just because of the fans, I would suggest literally any cooler from arctic that uses p12/p14 over just about anything else these days. Of course you can put the fans on other more expensive heat sinks, AIO's etc but that can get costly, whereas Arctic's solutions are not particularly costly, and very effective
