So I decided to do my first custom loop.
I got Ek- Duraclear soft tubing (3,8") ID (1,2) OD


Fittings are from alphacool

Is this gap between compression fitting is fine ? That is the tightest I can get my fingers hurt:thumbsdow


Second confusion about Uv O ring. Are you meant to replace the black one under the thread? Not like it is visible.

If you can't pull the tubing from the fitting, it's fine.
I suppose that the UV O ring has to go on the 1/4 threads to seal between you fitting and the waterblock. Not on your tubes.

The gap under your collar is a little larger than average but still fine to use. If the collar can screw all the way down it means you have run out of threads before it was tight, probably due to under size tubing.

The oring is just a spare so that you can choose between black and UV. The base orings can be visible in some cases.
