My System Specs

Default I'm a Watercooling Nub. Help plox?

Alright, soo, im planning to go water cooling. But i've never done that before. Im on a bit of a tight budget cuz im buying other things also during chirstmas so im planning to spend NOTHING over 200 dollars..

I've been putting parts together, and what really gets me is the size of the tubes.

Everything that i'm buying says that it's compatible with 3/8IN tubes. but, This CPU block is kinda confusing.

Can i use this with this tubing>?

Get the GTZ... very good block for the price... if you can find it. Check the buy/sell thread. If not, you can get a Supreme-LT: another good block for the price. Take a look at Dazmode's store, I know he had the LT in stock a little while ago. Maybe he got it back.
