I=inside
O= outside
the difference is whatever the thickness of the walls are.

ok the dtek white water only came in OD sizes. does that mean ill have to go with 3/8" tubing? i wanted to go with 1/2" ID i was in such a hurry to buy the waterblock because they only had one in stock.

well it is my experience that if you heat the 1/2 ID tubing(dont melt just warm it up) it will still fit on a 1/2 OD fitting. Some of the more expeirenced people might want to comment on this though...

Dtek blocks come with either 1/2" OD or 3/8" OD barbs - you got the right one for 1/2" ID tubing...

1/2 ID tubing fits over 1/2 OD barbs. 1/2 ID means its 1/2 inner diameter which fits over a 1/2 outer diameter of a barb
