My System Specs

Default How much tubing and fluid?

I'm getting ready to make the final order for my wc parts (fittings tube and fluid) and I am wondering. How much tubing is used in an average loop? I also need to know how much fluid I will need. Will 1L be enough?

components will be cpu, 1 gpu, 120 rad, 360 rad, pump/res in a bitfenix shinobi case. Im thinking I am going to have to go with the xspc box reservoir.

Thanks

I'd get around 10-12 feet to be safe on tubing, for fluid probably closer to 1.5L.

No because then it would be impossible to build anything. If you ask for 10 feet then you'll get one 10 foot length of tubing etc.

Ok good. The way it is worded on the website had me worried. "Sold in 1 ft. units"

you'll really like the xspc box resi dude... i love mine. It's the best place for a pump/resi in my humble opinion.

Yea I can see where that might confuse you but all that means is they charge for every ft you buy
