    I'm considering sleeving my tubing for my upcoming water cool build. Does anyone know of where I can buy sleeving big enough for tubing?

    Yes, this seems to be the only place I can find tube sleeving. Unfortunately they only sell black tube sleeving and I would like to use white. Are there any issues with painting the sleeving white?

    I don't think it would look right if it was painted plus it may make it clump together and not have a little bit of flex.

    glad i could help... also since you're sleeving the added wall thickness of the tubing will help with the kink resistance when not using coils.

    I like the 3/4 tubing but I'm leaning toward 7/16 ID, 5/8 OD tubing, purely aesthetics. Since I can't find any 5/8 sleeving, is it possible to fit 1/2 sleeving over a 5/8 OD tube?

    I don't think it will fit.
