Tubing is a critical component to any liquid cooler setup and refers to the set of hoses that carry the fluid between the different components of the loop. There are 3 basic sizes - 1/4", 3/8", and 1/2" and which you use is a matter of your component sizes & system design. The importance of going with the best tubing option for your money becomes clear when considering a faulty or cracked tube can leak water and damage your components.

FAQ & Section Info

What brands make the best tubing?

XSPC, Alphacool, EK, PrimoChill PrimoFlex, Masterkleer, Duralene, Tygon Norprene, Feser, Innovatek, and several other of the top tier watercooling manufacturers make great quality tubing.

How do I know what size tubing to choose?

The size of your tubing must be thicker then the narrowest (most restrictive) waterblock in your loop to ensure optimal flowrate throughout the loop. If your tubing meets this basic requirement, it (the flowrate) should not be affected by going any larger. Should you go with tubing that is too restrictive it would negatively impact your flow rate and could create a bottleneck. Some of the most popular sizes of tubing are 1/2" ID 3/4" OD, 3/8" by 1/2", 3/8" ID by 5/8" OD which is a recommended size to avoid kinks. In our experience the most popular size is 3/8 inch ID by 1/2 inch OD.

Does tubing thickness affect the temperatures in your system?

This issue has been debated, but in general the answer is NO for most applications. There are different reasons to choose different tubing sizes - compatibility with your equipment, availability, the size of your fittings, etc. However, in most installs the thickness of the tube will not change your temps.

How much tubing do I need for my loop?

This depends on how large your build is and how many devices you will be interconnecting - but as a rule of thumb, 10ft of tubing is more than enough for the vast majority of custom loops out there.

How does the inner diameter of your tubing affect your liquid cooler loop?

When it comes to tubing you can choose all types of inner diameters - half inch, 3/8, 7/16, etc. In general the inner diameter does not affect the temperature control capabilities of the loop. What it does affect is flow. The rule of thumb is that the higher the number of blocks & components in your loop, the larger you should go on the inner diameter. Flow is not directly related to temperature performance, but it could come into play if there is a foreign substance build-up, etc.
