the only thing that suck about 1/2" tubing is incredibly stiff and hard to manage plus the whole T bends u have to use take away from the nice look

Not exactly. It depends what kind of tubing you buy.

all 1/2" tubing will not bend more than about 50-60 degrees before collapsing in.

How do you know? Have you tried? I've seen some on OC Forums with about a 90ish degree angle bend and it's still fine. 3/8" is fine for normal use, but it's not so great when it comes to water flow...

ive installed a few 1/2" setups and while they are the best for waterflow they are still extremely hard to get the bends you want without the tube collapsing. most times i had to used at least 2 elbows to make it work.

Tygon makes the best tubing in the world, and yes, you can bend Tygon a lot.

thats because you didnt use an aftermarket cooler. You need an aftermarket cooler. My friend has his x800Pro flashed to an X850XTPE with the zalman cooler.
