Solved Confused about water cooling fitting sizes! Tags: Overclocking Water Cooling CPUs GPUs Last response: July 24, 2013 6:02 AM in Overclocking Share Duncster96 July 24, 2013 5:44:49 AM Hello everyone. I am thinking about a water cooling loop for my CPU, and maybe eventually my gpu. But anyway the Waterblock I'm looking at http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=WC... has G1/4" threads and the tubing I'm looking at http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=WC... has 1/2" ID. So will these fit and also am I missing something that goes inside the tubing or something. This is my first time doing anything with water cooling so sorry if I sound like an idiot.

The ID is the inner diameter of the fitting, which is just how wide it is. They aren't related.

The ID is the inner diameter of the fitting, which is just how wide it is. They aren't related. So the fittings screw into the block and the tubing fits around the fitting.
