Just got some for my watercooling setup which should be here sometime this week I hope, what I wanted to know is when it is hooked up does it seem like it puts alot of stress on the CPU since the hose is pretty stiff?
I got my 3/8' hose from HomeDepot for less than 3dollars for 20feet long. It's more than you need so...you can get less than that. This is clear hose and it seems to be very flexible. Just added few nylon holders for holding the hose in place. I got those from HomeDepot as well.
Hey D,
Thats too funny cuz thats where I got my hose. I got 15 foot of it for $5. Mine is the clear kind with the white braided lines in it.
Mine's just clear with nothing written on it. It's just plain clear hose.
You can also get price per foot....Well....maybe different HomeDepot sells different materials? I doubt it but possible. Just rey to look for one that's more flexible.
Got 20 feet of the no name clear tubing for my setup from there also. Works like a charm with my rig. 26C idle, 33C for full load amd thunder chicken 850 pushing a tad over 1100 made me smile :)
