That Swiftech kit is pretty nice actually. I wouldn't use it for more than just CPU though.

Default Water cooling tools.

Hey all. Just wondering if anyone nows where I can pick up a tool to cut the tubing with clean line. On my third LC project and have used the blades from carpet or box cutting knives but would like to find an alternative. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Regular diagonal-cutting pliers like the following allow for cutting up to at least 1/2" tubbing with a nice clean straight cut

Default Cutting tool

Thanks for your quick response. I actually found exactly what I was looking for at of all places an auto parts store. It will cut up to a 3inch diameter tube clean and straight. For anyone interested it is made by KD tools. Thanks again Forge.

Edit: Crappy tire has a hose/pvc cutter $18.00. It's in the plumbing section and has a ratcheting grip. Just don't ask staff for help.... cause.... well.... it's crappy tire lol.

Greetings, where can one buy tubing in the standard water block sizes?
13mmx10mm,13mmx9mm,12mmx8mm,11mmx8mm,10mmx8mm

I would need more than what ususally comes with ready to assemble cooling kits. Thanks.

Just look in any large hardware store like Rona or Home Depot and Canadian Tire and you will find clear tubing that fills the requirements for watercooling. Look in their pool section too perhaps.

The local Rona here had the same type of tubing that I paid quite a bit more for online especially when you factor in the shipping costs.

A freind of mine told me that the tubing that came with my swiftech kit is exactly like the stuff he uses for his fish tanks, so maybe try pet supply stores also. Just another suggestion.
