My 5930k has had a good life but it's starting to degrade and will only OC with Core 2 entirely disabled, so it's time to build - problem is my old rig is built with 1/2" - 3/4" flexi tube and that doesn't seem to be a widely-stocked standard anymore.

Do you reckon there'll be an issue if I run a couple runs in a smaller size or do you reckon it's just worth having a look at how this hard line tubing works and swapping the whole thing over?

Current case is a USB2.0 Corsair 800D so I'm looking at a Lian Li O11 XL for the USBC front IO, and EK front-mounted distro plate for the loop install.

Cheers all, and hi for the first time in a few years!

Oh sorry pal, should have been clearer - I'm gonna need more fittings and runs due to the motherboard also requiring runs and the distro plate, current fittings are matt black bitspower sized for the tubes and I'm not seeing much stock of those about anymore.

Edit: Ooooh I didn't realise these were a thing, wonder how they'd work down the distro for making equipment swaps easier?

Ah nice one, thanks pal.

That's a good call actually - I can make up the smaller missing runs like distro->rad with 10/16 and some cheap EK fittings and see how I fare with a bit of hardline, if it goes well I can swap it out.
