So would Primochill be more flexible? Cause the Home Depot Tubing is very unflexible, had to get all these elbows and stuff (what you said I should get earlier, those aren't elbows, they're fittings). 1:34, just an hour and a half till my 24hr test is done. No leaks at all, very good, thanks guys :)

Yeah, most of that hardware store tubing is pretty bad for bending, and a lot of it isn't even very circular. You should see a noticeable improvement with some proper watercooling tubing (i.e. Tygon, Feser, Primochill, etc)

and what about elbows? I just use these cheap thins (when the tubing bends too much, I'm not talking about what connects to the blocks and res and all that).

As for 90 degree fittings (not elbows), wouldn't the res's hinge thing block me from putting it in? And what of all the res's bubbles. They're all hanging around there, on the top. Do they ever leave or do I just leave them there forever?

Don't worry, that's the job of the res to bleed out the bubbles.

What did you mean by the hinge of the res?

Word of advice, don't put too many 90 degree elbows/fittings in your loop as it will become very restrictive if you use too many. 45 degree fittings are the best.

I used TFC 45 degree fittings, they work really nice, same with TFC tubing as well
