Default Connecting GPU blocks with different size tubing?

Another somewhat different question for the watercooling section.

Is there anything terrible with connecting two XSPC Rasa GPUs together using different size tubing?

Everything else will be the same.


I will be connecting with the same now, but for future knowledge, is it terrible?

My System Specs


Smaller diamter requiers more pressure to get same flow. Pi R sqared is area of a circle so smaller area less volume in the tube. Smaller the tube more friction loss to flow in the tube. the most constrictive part of your set up governs the flow of the entire set up.

do a test wile setting up. 1 gallon of distilled water with small fitting and big fittings test the time it takes to fill a 1 gallon container that will give you gallons per hour of your set up.

Table top test. ?
