Default hose question

im wanting to put a liquid cooling system on my computer, what size hose would i need? I have a Intel core i7 930 processor, right now im running it stock. When i play Runescape it runs in the high 60s to mid 70s. But when im playing on the internet its in the low to mid 40s.

You're seriously going to get liquid cooling for Runescape??

Are you being sarcastic? O_o

no not just for runescape, i know it is proably stupid but i just like the way it looks, and just to be able to say i have a liquid cooling on my computer. One day im going to learn have to overclock my computer. Right now im waiting on it to get closer for the waranty to expire in a couple of years.

You do realize a decent one is going to cost over $200 right?
