Laing D5-Pump 12V (MCP 655)

EK-Supreme HF - Full Nickel

TUBE Masterkleer 15,9/11,1mm UV - RED (4m)

EK-CoolStream RAD XT (360)

EK-PSC Fitting 12mm - G1/4 Black

Arctic Cooling MX-3 thermal compound (4g)

EK-Multioption reservoir 250

3x Gentle Typhoon 1850 RPM

I have a question, why do people make it so that the fans push from inside to outside the case.... I'd rather have it push cold air from outside to inside : /

you can go compression fittings if you'd like, I think that it looks better..

for the clips I mean these (white clips) :

You have to look at the ID and OD for your fittings/tubes

some people like to get fat fittings and tighter tubes to hold them just with the stretching

so your tube is :
Internal diameter (ID): 11,1mm (7/16")
Outer diameter (OD): 15,9mm (5/8")

so you want to find compression fittings that are 7/16" ID and 5/8" OD

^^ yeah that's what I meant with

''some people like to get fat fittings and tighter tubes to hold them just with the stretching''

so you're either fine with

barbs with proper ID and OD according to your tubing + clamps

fatter barbs with smaller ID tubing and stretch it on them

or compression fittings with proper ID/OD tubing

Hello.

I want to order everything from there so I don't have to deal with other websites.

Plus, I don't really care if the different is like 2-3C

I didn't like masterkleer tubing at all. Very stiff and prone to kinking, and just feels cheap and crappy. Replaced mine with primoflex LRT and i was astounded at the difference in softness, thickness and quality.

Avoid Masterkleer like the plague if you can afford to.

Your radiator is going to be dumping a lot of heat, most people want it dumped outside of the case, preferrably out the top since heat rises. I think it might be okay to pull outside air on a second radiator but I would still want to pull air in with case fans and exhaust with rad fans.
