    Default EX58 Extreme - Tubing Size for NB Block

    What tubing size is recommended for the nb block on the EX58 Extreme? The manual states 7.5mm ID with 10mm OD. That equates to 1/4" ID and 3/8" OD. However, in other reviews I read that GB recommends 3/8" ID and 1/2" OD? So which one is it?

    And thank you too

    I had the very same question and finally found the answer in this forum.

    The Gigabyte Technical Help - Ask a Question was useless, it appeared to me that a computer was trying to answer the question and not a person.

    I dialed up a person and they had no clue as to where in the USA one could get 7.5mm Id. tubing.

    I leave this for others to stumble upon:
    • 6mm 0.24In 3.78/16 (1/4" Tubing)
    • 7mm 0.28In 4.41/16
    • 7.5mm
      Specified by Gigabyte for their NorthBridge water block on page 16 of the GA-EX58-Extreme User's Manual Rev. 1002.
    • 8mm 0.31In 5.04/16
      Bitspower offers metric 8mm ID by 10mm OD & 11mm OD
