Water cooling HELP!

I just bought 10ft of 1/2"ID 3/4"OD hose for my liquid cooling build and turns out the hose is 5/8"ID 3/4"OD.

Will 1/2"ID G1/4" thread barbs still work cause I can't seem to find 5/8"ID G1/4" barbs?

    If you are sure the ID is in fact 5/8" ID, I'd send it back. 1/2" barbs wouldn't make a very good seal with 5/8" ID tubing (if it sealed at all).
  2. It won't make a seal. If it was shipping error, they owe you shipping back and no-charge rush shipping on the correct size, or even overnight cross shipping at no charge.

    You can run slightly smaller tubing over slightly larger barbs, but not the opposite- it won't create good seals at all.
  3. The strange thing is I took the tube to a local hardware store and the metel 1/2" barbs didn't fit but the plastic PVC 1/2" barbs fit perfect!
