Tubing question

Postby jmcinvale » Tue Mar 12, 2013 4:23 pm

I have an Xbox360 which I water cooled. I used 06mm x 10mm (1/4in x 3/8in) tubing. I now have 8 90 degree fittings installed to neaten up the external tubing runs. Even though I can only use the 06mm x 10mm (1/4in x 3/8in) inside the Xbox (space limitations) would it increase flow rate if I went to larger diameter tubing. My thinking is that larger tubing may reduce the effects of the 90 degree fittings.
