Hi every one, This is my problem and i need a fast help please since i already ordered my stuff and i need to cancel it if i made any mistake..

My currant cooling lob ruining (Pictures Attached)

- x1 Valve at 1/2" i am using it with my CPU
- x2 Empty valves at 1/4" (I am planing to use it with my new stuff)

My new items which i am planing to add to my currant lob are:

- x1 XSPC RX360 Rad.
- x2 1/4" Thread Barb Fitting for 1/2" ID Tubing
- x1 Primochill 1/2" ID - 3/4" OD (13-19mm) Tubing
- x1 Full cover dd gtx 285 with 1/2" barb.

My problems is clear, i ordered 1/2" ide Tubing to fit my Rad and Vga block, but i forget that i have 1/4" valve to be use with.

1- Should i continue with my order and buy some jointer between the 1/4" and the 1/2" tube?? Like this:

2- Should i cancel me order for the 1/2" tubing/barbs and buy 1/4" one??

3- Any other advice from any expert person in watercooling.

Please Help me!!
Thank you very much.

Just replace those 1/4" plastic barbs with 1/2" ones. Shouldn't cost you more than $10 at your local hardware store anyways.

Any samples please, and from where to buy?

Thank you very much

That's what i will do.. But don't you think if i use Metal or Brass barb will be better than the plastic?
