The G1/4 side screws into your block or elbow. The 1/2" Inside Diameter x 3/4" Outside Diameter refers to the size of tubing that fits in the compression side of the fitting. If you look at 3/8" ID compression fittings you'll see 2 sizes of OD, 1/2" and 5/8". It's very important you get the same size as your tubing or they either won't fit or won't seal.

I think most guys go with primochill... some stuff has better bend radius than other stuff so it really depends on what you want. I'd highly suggest as a 1st timer... going to the hardware store and buying cheap tubing the same size to practice with... 10 bux of that will probably do your entire loop. Once ya getter setup just the way you want you can then use those cheap assed pieces to measure and cut your good stuff.

nothing worse than wasting expensive tubing man.

I plan on going with the Primochill Advanced LRT Crystal Clear

I don't think I'll end up wasting that much tubing, it can't be too hard getting the right measurements.

Have only been there twice, gonna go soon to get some inspiration and ideas and check out some parts, ask for some info. Never handle any liquid cooling parts.

I shook hands with the CEO, huge ass dude lol. He was nice, their staff is pretty good too. Will have to talk to em more when I go sometime this week.
