That should be fine, as long as the res is still feeding the pump :)

I know what you mean, you just need to tinker with stuff from time to time. I prefer to build PC's for other people, saves me spending my own money haha

they will fit, carefully.

Soak them in very very very hot water and cram em on the fittings before they cool.

So i finished the loop out of curiosity using the primochill tube did u guys heat up the tube in hot water before sliding it in or not. I ask because it went in on my Swiftech barbs a little too easy and i kinda did not like that. Well the worse happened after filling it my Swiftech Block had a tiny leak luckily i put some paper towels around the area so i guess its gonna be delayed some more suggestions for a block and was it wrong for me to heat up the tube? yes no. I used zip ties to secure each barb i hope i didnt use the wrong barb i use the standard Swiftech i believe 1/2 inch.

If I'm reading this right you went from 7/16" tubing to 1/2" tubing? If so, that tubing will fit fairly easily over 1/2" barbs (what it was designed for), but having a proper seal with your clamps will be more critical to preventing leaks. (Many folks who run 7/16" tubing on 1/2" barbs don't bother with clamps at all).
