You probably have the Pump connected backwords, I did that and the water would not move from the "T" line, switch it around and it worked like a charm.

"T" line - pump - rad - GPU

Make sure you have the right connection for th "in", "out" on the GPU.

You should be able to fit the 7/16 tubing on the 1/2 connectors.
I managed to connect 3/8ID tubbing to 1/2OD connectors, I boiled a pot of water and used it to soften the end of the tubing.

Hope it helps

Do it again, it's the only way. And it has to be boiling water, and dip for 10 seconds.

It's a tight fit.

In my opinion, it should be:

Pump => Radiator => CPU => Reservoir

That way, the heat from the pump will be cooled by the radiator, and the coolest water will hit the CPU.

My setup right now that im workin on goes . 140x2 rad->D5 Pump->120x3 Rad->D5 Pump -> Gfx Card ->NB-> CPU. Just waiting for the last few parts after a pay check or to then i can put it all back together.

Nice buch of gear- not sure I'd set it up that way though- you're dumping all the heat from you GPU and NB onto you CPU, which is the least heat tolerant, and the most important to overclock- with all the cooling power, you should put a radiator between the GPU and the CPU to have nice cool water entering both the GPU and CPU- run the water through the NB after the CPU.

I know it would be better to have it as you say but it would make the inside a mess of tubs , the way I have it planed right now is the cleanest way i can have it setup.

Im only aiming for 3.8ghz and with this crapy gfx card i have right now Im not worried about that much heat from the cards . When i do benching it will all be out of the case any way with one of my rads in a buckets of ice .
