    Thanks for the advice. I agree that once you put the screwdriver to the band clamps, you're good to go. I might see if I can find them in black, or just spray the 8 that I will need. Sure like the looks of the Primochills, though.

    I totally agree about picking up the screw band type clamps at a local hardware store, I use them all of the time to fix my compressor hoses. I was just hoping someone would convince me that this type of clap would be just as safe inside my case. I know it's not as effective, but I really like the look better.

    1/2" ID, 3/4" OD on hose, looking at the Feser Active UV hose.

    ah same hose I have.. Feser.

    you'll be fine with standard hose claps from the hardware store. (I personally like the plastic type with the click teeth as they don't leave indentions on the end of the hose) If you dont have an external psu to start the loop up just look up how to jump the PSU and leak test it for a day. Should be golden after that.

    (be sure to have all motherboard power cables and everything disconnected.. the only thing that should be connected to the psu when you jump is the pump)

    Try these. Notice the curvature of the head...it prevents the pinch point standard ties present. Worm type clamps only chew the tubing. The ties are an old OMC product, but I'm sure you can find them at any marine dealer. ;)

    Well, I ordered the black metal reusable ones I like, the plastic Herbie clips that shevanel likes, and it just so happens that my Father-in-law owns a marine repair buisness, so I'll hunt down some of those fancy zip ties as well. When you live in a rural area and have to order everything, it pays to cover your bases.

    Thanks for the help.
