    I am piecing together my little watercool'd system.
    I just got myself a gpu block, but the damn connectors are tiny. I got 3/8 tubing, but this thing is even smaller!!!!!
    How can I get this into my loop?

    This is how its looking for now
    pump===radiator====CPU====Northbridge===Reservoir= =pump
    I am planning to put it after the northbridge, but how can I get the tubing to go down to 1/4? w.o slowing down the whole system?
    Or should I just give up and get another GPU block?

    they are all 1/2 or 3/8. this sucker is smaller!

    :idea:
    I just thought of something.
    Y that sucka!
    so after the CPU it goes to Y and one to GPU one to northbridge than both connect to another Y and to Reservoir.

    Now I need some way to get down to lower tubing size.
    Will check out some local stores for the fittings.


    BTW this is all going into a full sized case like antec or whatever. So I dont think that space would be a problem. :thumb:

    you mean pump => radiator => Y1 => Northbridge => Y2 => GPU => Y1 => CPU !? or am i wrong

    more like
    CPU
    I
    / \
    GPU NB
    \ /
    I
    Reservoir



    Since the NB will have a 3/8 it will not restrict it as much as when everything would be inline. also the GPU would have a 3/8 to 1/4 reducers on it. I think its 1/4 anyway, its pretty small.

    Hmm I think you got something there. the 3/8 OD is smaller than 3/8ID
    and probably rest of my stuff is 3/8ID
    I just wish I had a caliper to measure it.
    I guess I will wait till tomorrow to go to some hardware store and use theirs ;)
    But if it is than is there 3/8ID to 3/8OD adaptor? :?:
    I also will need to look for tubing!
    BTW i just got myself the antec full tower case for the project! Will post pics later on. Came with 350W PSU, all for merely 40bux. :thumb: thanks to my boss :D

    I meant that its prolly 3/8OD, can you tell us what type of GPU block it is?

    its a koolance one. posting a link to it.

    haha, it can do northbridge too.
    "A standard in nearly every Koolance system, the chipset liquid cooler fits both high-end video cards and motherboard northbridge chipsets"
    but it doesnt list the size!!


    wait i found the clamps and they say its 8mm. what does that mean? that its for koolance only? cuz i dont think ive seen a 3/8 to 8mm adapter :laugh:

    "Well **** in my mouth and call me your sister..." I can't find anything on the dimensions of it...thats why imma CUSTOM build my water cooling (no EXOS) and you should add a pelt, that would make it reallly really really cold
