Haven't you ever heard of the saying (as far as liquid cooling is concerned), "The more water on the surface, the better?"
It's a little higher than a 1*C difference between the sizes. 1/2 inch keeps the processor much cooler by perhaps 5C.
hahaha, 3/8 is tiny?? Do you know your fractions? Im sick and tired of people posting wrong info on the forum. 3/8 is 1/8" away from 1/2" okay. 1/8" is tiny. And it is proven on OCforum (a forum that actually has over 100 people watercooling) that 3/8" makes very very little difference compared to 1/2".
